Japan has produced countless examples of useful products, from the VCR and the DVD, to other things that aren't even acronyms! Giving you something useful to wear that hasn't been shortened for convenience, White Mountaineering.
Created by a Comme des Garcons-vet, this Tokyo-based line creates stylish pseudo-outdoors-wear by fusing design and utility, resulting in a fall/winter collection of street-ish takes on technical gear called "Exploration Party", though hopefully not the type that're no longer advertised on Craigslist. Some highlights:
Wool Fairile Jaquard Cardigan, a stranded color-worked wool-knit with a single-button closure, and navy trim, this red-stripped job takes its name from a technique developed on Scotland's Fair Isle, where even the FrankenBerry gets as prominent a placement as Kix.
The Moleskin Work Shirt, a durable panel-constructed version of this dude-staple boasts reinforced shoulders/underarms, WM-branded hem & neckline tape details, as well as double "3D chest pockets", which is the coolest use of 3, D, and chest ever since every other time.
Gore Windstopper® Vest, a quilted no-sleever with wool chest pockets/trim, which provides warmth via Primaloft insulation, and a weirdly atonal Tennessee accent.
The full drop also includes sneakers (suede/leather Converse-style hi-tops), and coats (the horse-leather-sleeved Long Stadium Jacket), as well as gam-sheathings like the rivet-reinforced Big Pocket Pants with front-facing cargo-style pockets, or as they're known in Japan, CSP's.
