With so many menswear shows and lookbooks released already for Fall/Winter 2017, I’ve done the tough work of looking through them to find some of the best looks thus far. While looking through collections can be great to find future grails and items you’d like to purchase come this fall, it can also just be an effective source of inspiration for putting together new looks for yourself. The styling in collections tends to be a bit out there for everyday wear so feel free to pick and choose aspects of these looks to try out yourself this year.

The Fall/Winter 2017 from Undercover is based around the theme of the Brain Washed generation. The pieces themselves cover all the essentials from tailored pieces to footwear and accessories and heavy weather parkas. There are many patterned items with graphic flourishes displayed but there are also a ton of more muted tonal looks in here. As always there are some signature Jun Takahashi design details such as the leather sleeves on the asymmetrical down jacket. The inclusion of oversized and downright baggy looks in this collection is a welcome departure to the usual UC formula as well.

Fans of Guerrilla Group’s offerings have been patiently waiting for the latest EYES&SINS collection from the collective. The FW16 collection is here and entitled THE SLEƎPER. The collection takes inspiration from a little known cold war Soviet clandestine operation explained on their site. The actual pieces themselves once again extend the mix of techwear and militarism we’ve gotten to know. Some of the more interesting pieces including  beefed up winter noragi and also a technical apron piece similar to what you might see welder’s use.

While a couple pieces have been spotted on the site for sale, expect the entire collection to be available later tonight on the GFIRMG site.

No stranger to sublines, Jun Takahashi is ready to release the first collection of the shepherd. The collection is a more tailored and mature take on what Undercover usually does. The first collection is modeled by none other than Thom Yorke (a close friend of Jun’s).

Dominate was one of the most interesting brands to emerge out of Asia in the past year. The Indonesian based streetwear label continues it’s cold weather roll out with a second drop. There’s a lot of militaristic influence here from the ‘souvenir’ jacket style embroidery to army-style fonts screened on the back of bdu shirt-jackets. Keep an eye out on their website for more.

Undercover returns this season for a second round of collaborations with Supreme. The line this year is even more expansive than last years selection. The typical selection of branded typographic graphics is back along with some suprises (a doc martin boot, supreme GILApple and a reversible bomber). Graphic zip and pullover hoodies, tees, an all over coaches jacke,  bondage pant and a wool coat are some of the other options available this time around.  While the fit and production looks to come from Supreme, expect the line to sell out immediately regardless. Personally I think this collection is a step up from last years, and I have a feeling we might see this become a yearly thing similar to the CdG x Supreme capsules. Whether it’s worth the resell pricing or the hassle is up to you.

The collection will be available at Supreme’s in-store locations in New York, Los Angles, London, Paris, as well as its online store from September 22. Japan will see a September 24 launch date.

Yesterday say not just the release of the ACRONYM x Nike Presto Mids, but also the unveiling of the collection itself. The German based techwear pioneers present a strong array of pieces for the colder weather months. Outerwear wise two designs really steal the show in my opinion; the J43A-GT and the J53TS-GT. These two designs have all the functionality expected from Acronym outerwear but the feel and fit of the pieces is precise and refined. Other new highlights include the J57TS-SS bomber jacket, the P24A-DS cargo pant.

Acronym continues to build momentum and a worldwide fanbase, but the downside of their growth is that their products are selling faster than ever before. Some items from this season are already sold out on the ACR website. Luckily there are a good selection of other stockists including END, Haven, HBX, Bdga, Hanon Shop, Bureau Belfast, Belief Moscow and Firmament Berlin.

Perpetual techwear favorite Shadow Project is back with another directional collection. The fall collection utilizes over-dyed textiles that pull from the expert techniques of the parent brand Stone Island. All the winter outerwear bases are covered from bubble-goose jackets and insulated bombers to parkas and vests. There’s a heavy emphasis on zippers, pockets and practical details. The best iteration of this idea in the collection is a jacket with a large front zip-out pocket (large enough to store a laptop or other electronics).

More after the jump and you can find the collection at the usual stockists END and Oki-Ni.

Nanamica always puts out one of my favorite loobooks each season. Remember wearing North Face in high school? I feel like Nanamica is the grad school version of that look. You have the reassurance of proper technical features when it comes to the elements but the label also combines it with relaxed tailoring and great fabrics. If you want something versatile that you can work to work and on vacation, it’s hard to beat Nanamica.

Shop the selection on their site and through retailers like END and SJS.
