Nike and Errolson Hugh have been busy this year, between the release of the Prestos and now this latest batch of ACG goods. In what might be the best collection to date, there are several key pieces that really take from the ACRONYM DNA and make it a bit more accessible and sports-oriented. Among them are the Alpine Jacket and the cargo pants which come in new DWR water-resistant fabric. You can shop the collection now online and at END.
Grailed has become the de-facto marketplace to buy and sell men’s designer fashion online. The site has filled a gap in the market allowing a worldwide community to discover rare designer pieces. The site started selling clothes directly last year with the launch of the Grailed 100. Since then Grailed has continued to offer up exclusive hard to find items at under market price. The Grailed 100 will return with another set of collector worthy jawns launching tomorrow, Novemember 15 at Noon EST. Among them are some of the items shown in the lookbook shots here. Rarities such as the Raf Simons Nebraska crewneck, Helmut Lang vest and C.E Icon long-sleeve
It’s hard to believe that Nike Lab and Jun Takahashi of Undercover have been collaborating on their line of running apparel Gyakusou for over six years. Through the process, the collection has continually evolved drawing from both Nike technology and Jun Takahashi’s punk sensibilities. While I felt the last few seasons have been lackluster, Gyaksou returns in fine form this year. The line features an fantastic color palette for fall and even sees a return of the infamous UC Giz print. The above video gives insight into the design process and great cropped views of the gear in motion.
Included are new items including a water-resistant LunarEpic Flyknit trainer, Aeroloft down jackets with removable sleeves. Launching November 10th online and at select NikeLab stockists online such as END and Dover St Market.
The collection is now available at Nike Lab.

I’m a huge fan of tan suede sneakers so it was no surprise that I liked these Air Unlimiteds as soon as I saw them. The high-top basketball sneaker has been reconfigured as a clean tonal colorway. Minimal branding is present on this pair and the best part may be the cream colored midsole. These will go fast so get these over at Nike Lab for $180.
Some of the most sought after UC grails have featured elaborate full size prints. This Fall/Winter collection contains a heavy duty printed Parka which should get you through all but the harshest winters. Details include a two way zip that extends to the hood, printed textile patch at the front and drawstrings at the waist and hem. The main selling point of course is the huge printed artwork on the back but besides that attention grabbing detail, this is one of those pieces heads are going to regret sleeping on in a few seasons.

Natural tan leather has been creeping into so many sneaker colorways this year but this clean execution of a Vans slip-on is too clean to pass up. Vans released a pack of Vachetta tan sneakers using it’s classic models such as the Era, the Slip-On and the Old School. The obvious reference to Hender Schemes comes to mind when you see these, however these are just a fraction of the price.
You can get these directly from Vans.
Stone Island is one of my go-to labels for fall weather. This olive textured crewneck blends the comfort of cotton with the substantial feel of a knit. This crewneck uses textured cotton mix jersey fabric and features two concealed press stud fastening welt pockets. Now that it’s sweatshirt season , you’ll be hard to go wrong with any of the crewneck styles from the Italian stalwart label. Find this and other Stone Island styles over at Mainline Menswear.

The Levi’s Type 2 trucker is a ubiquitous jacket design. That iconic style forms the basis of this collaboration between Levi’s and Junya Watanabe. The usual denim look is replaced by a luxurious wool/cashmere blend. A beige and brown coloring replaces the usual indigo.
