Swedish brand Our Legacy fills an important niche in men’s wardrobes by providing a mix of fashion forward clothing along with easy to wear elevated basics. The brand covers quite a bit of territory and in this upcoming Fall/Winter 2015 collection with a wide array of  colors, themes and styling options. Being a cold weather collection there’s plenty of outerwear here that stands out.

Styles include everything from nylon bombers to wool coats and the above shearling leather. The collection is named 10 , which is also the number of years the men’s label has been in business. The breadth of styles reflect both the brand’s history and also where it’s headed (slightly more experimental territory). Click through to see the full look, and shop new SS15 arrivals at End Clothing.

Photographer Sven Eselgroth contacted me to share an interview with menswear brand Our Legacy he had conducted while he was touring Scandinavia this past summer. Sven visited lead designer and brand co-founder Christopher Nying at their studios. In the interview Christopher touches base on the brands roots, inspirations and future, all accompanying photos in this feature are by Sven.

 Can you describe your design education?

I studied art and fashion communication and I think that led to the clothing because I was working with clothes during this time. At first I studied very fine art – sculpture and painting. Then graphic design, fashion communication, illustration and some photography. I didn’t really want to do that, but at the same time we started Our Legacy and made graphic t-shirts, which suited me quite well because it was really conceptual. We didn’t set out to purposely make clothing, it was more about expression. We tried to understand what sub-culture a particular t-shirt came from and create a look with it. The prints were inspired by lots of different ideas such as punk, skate, football hooligans in the 80s… Today we are coming back to those inspirations again. It doesn’t need to be very specific sub-cultures but I think there are new ones growing today that we’re not even aware of yet which could be quite interesting. Time feels like it goes faster today, people are more aware of what is happening socially and politically due to the newsfeeds.

It won’t be long til the remaining summer heat dissipates into crisp autumn air. Put away the t-shirts and take a look at these five shirting selections for Fall.

Black Pinstriped Patchwork Button-Down by Junya Watanabe

Junya has got  shirt-making down to a science at this point in his career. Details abound on this joint from the artfully chaotic patchwork to the small spread-button collar. Really nice button placket and shirt-pocket on this and  a shirttail hem. A nice update to the classic pinstripe shirt. $580 via SSENSE

.

Red Suede Shirt Jacket by Our Legacy

Our Legacy is a brand that has a continually puts out interesting shirting season to season. There’s not too much to say about this red suede joint. If you like luxury but wanna be low-key and not ostentatious about it, this shirt may be a worthwhile investment.  Be wary wearing this to the bar, but know that if you do, people are gonna be asking to touch you. Horn buttons and snap front pockets make this easy to throw on and something you won’t likely have buyer’s remorse over despite the hefty price tag. $740 via Tres Bien Shop.

Noizig Print Shirt by C.E (Cav Empt)

I’m still a little tight about missing the Simulation shirt by C.E from their SS13 collection. Luckily redemption can still be found. I googled the word noizig and still have no idea what it means, but that’s beside the point. The greyed out sky print goes hard and C.E has been selling briskly since the brand reached North American shores. Stay ahead of the pack and cop with confidence. $266 via BDGA

Undercover Men’s Cotton Overshirt by Undercover

Like most guys I used to wear shirts that were way too long untucked because I didn’t know any better. This is like that the well designed version of that in the form of an overshirt. Designed to be worn over oversized, feel free to throw a t-shirt or slimmer button-down underneath this joint.   This is a versatile layering piece that you can pair with either short bomber-style jackets or longer parkas or overcoats. The crisp cotton material looks great and has two functional pockets. £360 via Oki-Ni.

Elbow Patch Double Pocket by ts(s)

If you’re gonna buy a plaid shirt, either get a really cheap one or ball the fuck out and get one with some extra bells and whistles. Made from a unique plaid flannel and with navy elbow patches on each side; this is an undeniably good-looking shirt. While you may get lumberjack comments from plebeians rest assured that this one shirt is better than anything they’ve ever owned. $625 via Haven
