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. Click through to see the entire lookbook.

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.

Get the parka over at SSENSE

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.

For my entire life, Nike has been number one when it comes to sneakers. In the hearts and minds of sneaker enthusiasts, among streetwear circles and in terms of pure sales , there was no substitute for Nike. Recently Adidas has made in-roads on Nike’s dominance in the sportswear market. In the fiscal second quarter Adidas sales jumped 23% from a year ago. Beyond just the numbers there’s a real feeling that Nike is falling off in it’s product offerings while Adidas is gaining momentum with successive releases. Since the release of the first Yeezy 750 sneaker in February 2015, Adidas has gained massive popularity with it’s Adidas Originals line, in particular with Ultra Boosts and NMDs. It’s clear that Adidas has made plenty of great design and marketing designs in the past two years. However part of their growth has also come through Nike’s failure to adapt to current market demands. Being at the top for too long can naturally cause some level of complacency, I will break down some of what the areas where Nike is falling behind below.

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.

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.
