Luckily, it is still cold enough outside to talk about parkas and sweaters and fall clothes. While out in Las Vegas a few weeks back, I had an opportunity to check out the new autumn winter 2009 goods from Columbus, Ohio based Relwen. The new offerings are fairly consistent with what the brand has done in the past, but I really like casual aesthetic of the line. I’m not normally one to wear RL or A&F, but Relwen fills that gap for me. A casual, Sunday brunch, day-off sort of vibe that works with my sensibilities.
Jamie Rupp – pictured in the gallery below – provided more info on the above drab-green army coat. “The Military Parka is the real deal, as authentic as you can find outside of original Korean War issue (circa 1951). Although, I think ours is even better made if that’s possible, and lacks the musty mystery smells of the 60 year old vintage.” After checking this guy out in Vegas, I would have to agree. More looks below.
