VANSON X Junya Watanabe COMME des GARçONS MAN Varsity Jacket

By - September 23rd, 2010

Its not just heritage inspired, it is heritage of itself.  When designer Junya Watanabe  wanted a varsity jacket for his Comme des Garcons MAN line, he tapped assistance from a familiar yet unlikely source, racing outfitter VANSON.  Familiar since VANSON’s been the go-to company for leather race gears the last 30 years.  Unlikely because it’s not known for causal athletic apparel but instead full-on body armor in leather for motorcyclists.  The result, a beige/black leather creation with Watanabe’s camouflage pattern lining.  The combo makes for an interesting variation of a classic.

Dover Street Market got these in this season. I think they lasted for about 2 days before selling out. And that's, I believe the biggest Comme stockist in the world. So good luck.

I likes. I really dig those fold over collars on varsity style jackets.
