Heritage Research Spring/Summer 2012 Lookbook

Heritage Research Spring/Summer 2012 Lookbook

From Selectism comes a look at Heritage Research’s Spring 2012 lookbook. The pieces are captured on a beautiful day at the beach, which we can’t wait to revisit once again since the cold has really started to hit. “Creator Russ describes the collection as having a “Vietnam era Counter Culture feel”, an apt description for a relaxed collection full of patchwork print, madras fabrics and that incredible tiger camp.” The creativity and experimenting is full throttle in this collection and looks to hit each and ever piece, including the lineup’s short sleeve shirts, vests, sweats, and blazers. More looks below as well as over at Selectism.

Heritage Research Sierra Nevada Ventile Parka

Heritage Research Sierra Nevada Ventile Parka

Heritage Research has released their Sierra Nevada Ventile Parka for Fall 2011, one that takes inspiration from a 1952 photo printed in A LIFE magazine of Jack Kennedy in the Sierra Nevada mountain range wearing a classic 1950’s military mountaineering parka. It’s got all the proper details like a navy weatherproof Ventile shell, adjustable hood with removable shearling sheepskin lining, military RiRi zip under a double front placket nickel popper closure stormflap and much more. The authentic pivot sleeves allow for climbing while the four front angled hand warmer pockets will give protection when you need it most. The light tan Ventile and wool blanket lining looks tremendous and does a splended job insulating as well.

Heritage Research x Quoddy Grizzly Boot [Fall 2010]

Though Fall 2010 is Heritage Research‘s first dip into the men’s footwear segment, teaming up with Quoddy definitely gets them off “on the right foot” so to speak. What you see here is Heritage Research’s own rendition of the Maine-based shoe label’s Grizzly boot. The boot’s fitted with a tri-colour, full leather upper which is hand-stitched and placed atop a Vibram sole that mimics the original moccasin sole of the classic Quoddy boot. The rawhide laces, 6 lacquered and deerskin bellows are all welcomed details.

Heritage Research x Oipolloi Varsity Jacket

An Oipolloi exclusive, this varsity jacket from Heritage Research may be the one the majority of us have been imagining for quite sometime. Available in a welcomed grey-wool body and cream-leather sleeve combo, it’s a good look for the winter season, but if done properly, you might be able to pull it off for those breezy spring and summer nights as well. This is a classic baseball jacket done right with its handwarmer pockets to the press stud fastening and ribbed collar.
