The Wtaps reinterpretation of classic workwear and military garments has been a contributing factor to the label’s worldwide following. This season offers a number of classic pieces that have been reworked with the Wtaps aesthetic. The Blues Jacket is a classic workwear inspired denim jacket. This season’s iteration is one with a more vintage persuasion, constructed from a subtle washed denim. The garment also includes a number of subtle brand elements, such as custom branded button detail and signature Wtaps red tab. The jacket is coupled with the heavy cotton Rim Tee in navy.
Mention must be made of the accessories included in recent drops from Carhartt WIP and Canadian label, Maple. The Camp Shopper in Rover Green is made from a heavy weight canvas with a zippered closure and military inspired details. This robust tote styled bag is made to endure harsh treatment and long time use. The Mesa Cap from Maple is definitely another standout piece.

The Store has seen a lot of new arrivals roll through the door in the past few weeks with a few stand out items. Most notably the latest season Jungle shirts from Wtaps. Wtaps has become renowned for their military inspired collections, with each seasons focus subtly shifting to highlight slightly different fabric makeups and treatments. This seasons Jungle shirt comes with the signature four pocket detail with a sleeve pocket update. Fabrication this season is in a heavier weight cotton chino fabric, that has undergone a wash process to create a heavily worn vintage effect. A classic Wtaps piece that can be worn as an over shirt / jacket, that will only get better with age.
We’ve paired this up with the Edwin Labour pants. This seasons Edwin offering has really impressed, including an expansion of their “Indigo” capsule. This season they have also stepped out of their standard classic pant offering to offer slightly more adventurous takes on classic workwear pieces. The Labour Pants being our stand out favourite. Using their classic Union Slim Work Chino as the inspiration, they’ve used the same fabric as last season, a smooth textured highly durable poly/cotton blend that has a subtle sheen. This season updating the fit with a much fuller straight and slightly cropped leg whilst maintaining the same front workwear pocket details. The most interesting aspect of the pant is the subtle elastic detailing on the back waist band, allowing for a much more comfortable fit and greater movement. Also check the slightly heavier weight indigo dyed version that comes in a beautiful linen textured cotton.
Subtle accessories supplied by the latest seasonal updates from Maple Co. The extra long “Star” Concho belt and wallet chain. Incorporating some luxurious yet hard wearing materials and hardware and all hand crafted in their native Canada. The beauty is in the details.
