Hands On | Alexander Olch Fall/Winter 2010 Collection

Alexander Olch Fall/Winter 2010 Preview

Well, we’re sure some of these pieces are already making their way to select shops, but we had the opportunity to check out Alexander Olch‘s fall collection first-hand a few months back and thought we’d pull the lid off now. From the shots, you’ll see the offerings go beyond just neck-wear as they’re wrapping essentials like journals and handkerchiefs in their warm fabrics. The color palette and patterns are pretty diverse so stocking up on just Olch ties won’t hinder your success one bit.

First Look: Fjällräven Fall/Winter 2010 Preview

First Look: Fjällräven Fall/Winter 2010 Preview

Åke Nordin, founder of Fjällräven, has stood by his mission, which has always been to make the wilderness more accessible to more people by offering durable and functional equipment. The company’s iconic backpack, which happens to be the world’s first framed backpack, was an innovative improvement on the common rucksack. Still designing today with the same dedication to ingenuity, this iconic Swedish brand is known the world over for simple, functional designs that stand the test of time.

The Fall 2010 collection brings us everything we’ve come to expect from the brand plus an abundance of outerwear pieces that are guaranteed to keep us warm when the arctic winter hits. We spotted a down jacket in a bright blue finish. Apparently, it’s proven to be the most visible color in the snow, and it just so happens that this blue is identical to the one gracing Sweden’s national flag. Coincidence? I think not.

First Look: Alpha Industries Fall/Winter 2010 Preview

Alpha Industries Fall/Winter 2010 Preview

Alpha Industries is known for their military-inspired gear, but what many aren’t aware of is the detail and authenticity of these products. The US Dept. of Defense recruited Alpha to revamp its military jacket and the rest is history. The jet age took flight shortly after which required the company to develop products that kept up with the needs of our soldiers and they didn’t disappoint. As better fabrics were developed and tested, Alpha made better jackets for the troops – better designed, better produced, and more reliable. Alpha garments were ranked as warmer, more comfortable, more durable and designed to meet any climatic challenge. Since the mid-1960s, Alpha has continuously manufactured the M-65 Field Jacket, and they’ve produced virtually every MA-1 Flight Jacket used by US Air Force, Army and Navy pilots.

With such a rock-solid reputation, the highlight of Alpha Industries’ Fall/Winter 2010 collection is unarguably the outerwear lineup. Plenty of heavy-duty shells are being offered, including a Gore-Tex parka in a camouflage finish. The kids’ collection caught our attention as well with a flight jacket and peacoat, both of which make us wish we were really young all over again.

Mark McNairy Fall+Winter 2010 Preview [Footwear]

We’ve got a handful of fall 2010 previews lined up for you guys in the coming days, all of which we’re extremely excited about. We basically cracked open the holy grail and have the shots to prove it. Case in point, Mark McNairy‘s footwear lineup for the fall. The collection is phenomenal to say the least and delivers on all the components the American designer is known for. All shoes are made in Northamptonshire, England and are crafted with much attention to detail. Not only will you see the red brick soles we’ve come to love from seasons past, but expect some more traditional offerings as well.

At Milk: J.Crew Fall/Winter 2010 Collection Preview

At Milk: J.Crew Fall/Winter 2010 Collection Preview

Another day another dolla fall 2010 preview, friends. This time, we took a quick trip over to Milk Studios for the preview of J.Crew‘s Fall+Winter 2010 collection. These days, the American retailer is doing very few things wrong and when I say few I mean none. They’ve got a talented designer in Frank Muytjens, some great New York locations (including our favorite — Tribeca’s Liquor Store), and they’re in “good company” with some of the world’s most reputable brands. They’ve delivered some highly coveted products from the likes of Mister Freedom, Belstaff and Quoddy, all while giving us a collection of their own that proves they’re unlike any other brand.

The Fall 2010 lineup is a versatile one with everything from a wool blazer to a Levi’s denim jacket all the way to a pair of classic chinos. They’re all available in a trimmed cut that’s not a centimeter closer than they should be. The mid-layer pieces look promising as well as we noticed a few warmed sweaters and cardigans that will do us wonders when the cold season comes around again. And of course, we couldn’t help but to notice the models’ footwear yesterday as they were sporting Russel’s and Alden Longwings in an array of finishes. Just one more thing to look forward to, friends, that’s all.

On Display: Levi’s Fall/Winter 2010 Collection

Preview: Levi's Men's Fall/Winter 2010 Collection

Last night, the Hosfelt Gallery in NYC hosted a preview of Levi’s Fall 2010 collections for Men + Women. For obvious reasons, our attention was primarily on the men’s collection. No surprises here as denim’s playing a major role in the fall. There’s also a healthy mixture of different warm fabrics like corduroy and wool. Creative Director Len Peltier also made sure the design team made full use of the color palette, giving us darker finishes we’ve come to expect in the winter along with a few bright pieces that definitely pop.

Wear The Pants: Dockers Fall 2010 Preview

Wear The Pants: Dockers Fall 2010 Preview

Last night, I had the opportunity to hang out with some great people while checking out Dockers‘ Fall 2010 offerings. There’s more to look forward to than just khakis as I saw plenty of top-notch pieces that need to be in my closet as fast as humanly possible. There was actually an entire table that had a great mix of products from button downs and tees to — of course — khakis. Along with what the Americana label is known for, there will be plenty other fabrics in the mix as I personally saw tweed and corduroy, just to name two.
