Orisue

The beauty of origami is no matter what steps you take, you always end up with a perfectly executed...ball of paper. Being even more successful, using cloth, Orisue

Another name for origami, Orisue's also a CA-based outfitter offering exclusive Philly distribution through Chinatown's Abakus Takeout, who's slingin' the Fall & Holiday lines that exemplify the label's paper-folding-influenced approach to transforming plain, two-dimensional fabric into functionally fashionable, detail-driven duds through folds/pleats and stitching trickery, which's also the name of Betsy Ross's little-known brothel side biz. New action includes a black & purple plaid buttondown, plus another in charcoal wool with top-flap breast pockets and epaulets on the lower sleeves for rolled cuff security, as well as a pair of varsity jackets w/ reinforced shoulder/chest patches, and ribbed waists/cuffs -- the black one gets matching black sleeves, while the chocolate gets orange arms and the adoration of all six Cleveland Browns fans. Fall pieces include a heather gray zip-up hoodie w/ soft fleece lining and a neck-warming high collar; treated nylon jackets w/ black mesh underarm venting and a semi-raised snap collar; and a pair of double-breasted peacoats in gray or black w/ contrast-stitched slit pockets, circular logo patches, and collars with the label's slogan, "FOR THE HUNGRY" visible from behind when the collar's popped, saving people the annoyance of talking to 'bags just to find out who made their clothing

Within two weeks, Abakus'll be receiving the Holiday 2 drop, which includes the multi-patched, heavy flannel Salisbury jacket in black or red plaid w/ hoodie underlayer, the black or brown synthetic leather Bennet baseball jacket, and pullover hoodies with dual-textured all-over patterning lending a tiger effect -- because nobody wants to be a paper tiger, but fabric tigers get things done.
