A Closer Look: Nari/Furi F/W 2010

Tokyo-based label Nari/Furi has a seriously expansive f/w 2010 collection ¬†designed with the cyclist in mind, covering everything from outerwear and bags through to socks and gloves. I was tipped off to the line via the bike blogs this week, and sorting through their f/w offerings there is so much good stuff to choose from. Once again the Japanese take inspiration from NA standards like Patagonia and Marmot and put their own aesthetic spin on it, which is generally for the clothing’s betterment. This collection looks both functional and stylish, with the three pieces featured above being my highlights, as well as the backpacks, camo shorts, slim fit cargo pants, and 3/4 sleeve button-ups. The line is available almost exclusively in Japan, but if you’re an east coaster you can find them at Superb Bicycle in Boston or Chari in NYC. Click through for more from Nari/Furi for f/w 2010.

Buzz Rickson F/W 2010 Japan Catalog

It’s surprising that we haven’t featured Japanese militaria manufacturer Buzz Rickson before here on 84/85, as we’re both big fans of their work in perfecting the classic American WWII styles. Generally considered the best of the reproducers, everything is done as close to original spec as possible, with minimal availability of each piece. Highly sought after both in Japan and abroad, the collection is released yearly each fall, with numerous special editions and line collaborations. These are my highlights from the Japanese f/w 10 catalog; what can be said, everything is amazing, with my standout piece being the denim/cross patch work shirt featured above. Check History Preservation Associates for a good look at some individual pieces and what may actually be available to the North American market, and click through for more of the catalog.

Victim Fall/Winter 2010 Lookbook

A bit late to the seasonal party, but this extensive lookbook for Victim’s f/w 2010 collection is pretty formidable nonetheless. I’m really feeling the styling of this presentation, with understated combinations and relaxed fits. The collection is put together to a T, with my personal highlights being the varsity and denim jackets, and the knit rollneck shown with shorts and boots. Also: is 2011 the year menswear re-embraces the looser jean (did that already happen in 2010)? I think we’re gonna put our bets on yes. Click through for the rest of this outstanding lookbook.

Noir Basic Fall/Winter 2010-11

Parisian based label Noir Basic is a relatively new line started in 2008, with an idea to create the highest quality reinterpretations of classic streetwear-style jackets. The line takes influence from vintage and Ameicana styles with a Japanese-like attention to detail. All the jackets are handmade in France by local craftsmen and artisans, and made from the highest quality materials such as lambskin, calf suede, japanese denim, and sterling silver hardware. I love the attention to detail as well as overall simplicity of the line. Keep reading for the full f/w 2010 collection…

Property of… Roy Day Bag and Alex Work Tote

Property of… bags are a favourite around here with the 84/85 boys, we both have one of their larger sized tote bags from a few seasons previous and they’ve only gotten better with wear. Here is a look at two particular styles of interest from the f/w 2010 collection, the Roy Day bag and the Alex Work tote. The two styles are great for day to day use, with the Roy day bag being a smaller style shoulder bag, and the Alex work tote a bit bigger tote style with a shoulder strap and leather bottom. Both bags are constructed from rugged canvas with leather details and heavy duty hardware. Each bag is very reasonably priced, the Roy bag is only $145¬† and the Alex tote is $245. Both bags are available online now @¬† Outlooks.

The North Face Purple Fall/Winter 2010


The North Face Purple Label is a collection that both Kevin and I drool over equally. The line is basically only available to the Japanese market so we get a view of the fall/winter 2010 collection from Japanese retailer Digital Mountain. The pieces feature that perfect 70’s mountaineering styling that we have come to love so much. The jackets are the focal point in the collection for me, but the vests and bag range look amazing as well. Keep reading for the full looks…
