WTAPS always strikes that careful balance of maintaining their aesthetic while bringing out fire variations on the staples they’ve become known for. Fall/Winter 2017 does have quite a few heaters in it. First among which is the tactical field jacket above. It seems the Japanese label has struck a careful balance between a full on militaristic approach and more laid back streetwear staples. Other standouts here include a cowichan sweater, chore coat, and beige parka. Also of note are the Timberland boots in brown suede that is a great take on the staple 6″ boot.

Look for the collection to hit shops including END and Need Supply.

WTAPS founder Tetsu Nishiyama also runs FPAR (Forty Per Cent Against Rights), which is a niche graphic based line. Many of the graphics are straight to the point and draw influence from propaganda and fringe rebel movements worldwide. Two standouts from the 2016 release are this Beavis and Butthead logo flip and the collegiate styled Courage crewneck. Both are available at END Clothing.

The Hiking boot is a versatile style that matches well with denim, cargo pants or other military/outdoor styled pants. Ideally these boots offer durability, comfort and are good style switch-up when it comes to navigating both cities and rural areas in cold weather conditions. One of the better iterations on the style are these WTAPS Jammer Boots. Tough cow leather upper and a vibram rubber sole ensure that these will last many seasons to come. Padded tongues and collar and contrast hiking laces add a little individuality to an otherwise pretty classic design.

Available for $795 at END Clothing.
