Alex Mill’s teamed up with Japanese brand OMNIGOD for a co-branded lineup of shirting and sweaters. The pieces are made in OMNIGOD’s factory in Kojima, Japan on old power looms in a city known for its denim manufacturing. Consisting of four styles, the Fall/Winter 2014 collaboration features three shirting styles in four colorways ranging from $220 to $255 as well as one sweater which retails for $320. The detail on the shawl collar pull over is immense – indigo-dyed yarn, 4-needle stitching, made on one of the few operational vintage loop machines in the world. The work shirt’s woven with a vintage shuttle loom and features selvage detailing on the interior of the placket, side placket, and side gusset. Other details include Mother of Pearl buttons and a broken-in wash that comes in cream and dark indigo. The spread collar shirt is made with an original herringbone washed fabric and features similar detailing comes in light blue, with construction taking place on vintage triple-needle sewing machines. Upon purchasing, customers will also get a custom pen and case highlighting the handwriting of Alex Mill designer Alexander Drexler.
Look for the collaboration to be available exclusively through Alex-Mill.com and at the Alex Mill store in New York’s Nolita neighborhood this Thursday, September 18th as well as OMNIGOD stores in Japan.
