Neighborhood has developed a cult following for their distinctive aesthetic, a mixture of vintage, military, Americana and motorcycle culture. These influences shine through in one of the feature pieces from the latest season. Taking a more understated approach to the options seen in previous collections, The P.D. Leather Jacket is a refined take on a classic. Made of super soft sheepskin leather, this jacket embodies the brand’s superior approach to quality and craftsmanship.

Introducing a few key pieces from the current range of Neighborhood in store at Apartment. With a reputation for quality and craftsmanship, the Tokyo based label has spared no detail on their latest range of indigo dyed garments. First up is the QC Jacket. The work styled jacket features a quilted body, constructed from a super soft and light weight cotton/nylon blend. The minimal silhouette is complimented by subtle details such as the corduroy collar, snap button closures and back vents.
The NC Shirt is a beautiful reinterpretation of a classic work wear over shirt. The soft quilted cotton is given a deep indigo dye treatment, resulting in a rich tone that will only improve over time. Complete with two front chest pockets and heavy placket detail, the NC shirt is definitely a store favourite.

This process allows the tee to hold it’s shape over a long period of time. As with all items offered by both Wtaps and Neighborhood, the College Tee is built to last.
The M-45 Pant from Neighborhood is based on a World War II military issued pant. Constructed from a hard wearing mid weight Japanese cotton, the pant is cut with a relaxed full leg fit.

Wacko Maria is now available at Apartment and we couldn’t have asked for a stronger range to start things off. The debut appearance from this Tokyo based brand includes the lined coach jacket, available in both tiger and geisha prints.
A unique approach to a classic design, the lining detail adds a thick under-layer which elevates the garment from a shell to a substantial jacket. The attention to detail and construction has resulted in a hard-wearing range with a workwear inspired silhouette.
