Some Things I Saw at an Apparel Trade Show (Part II)

A few more photos from spring / summer 2010 goods that were spotted out in Las Vegas for the Project / Capsule trade shows. As I looked through my pictures I noticed that I have an unhealthy obsession with woven shirts and ice cream. Oh, and tequilla.

A look at Gant SS10




I wish I would have taken a video of Mister Mort bugging out over this Japanese guy’s outfit. It was classic. Mort is really good at the whole street style thing. Maybe the photos he took will end up on his site.


Billykirk leather goods, hats and their footwear collaboration with Sebago.


Fjällräven representing Sweden.


Neckwear from Mr. Alexander Olch. It should be noted that Olch is a long time P+W client, FYI.


Mark McNairy in his new American made oxford shirting.


Capsule gave people ice cream.


Tailgate gets my vote for best booth decor.


One part Maine, one part storm trooper; boots from Vael Project



Below: my pal Hiroshi from Rhythm Footwear nearly missed the show due to a typhoon in Tokyo.

    Some great stuff. Highlight for me though, is the Billykirk stuff. Wow, those guys have got it.

    Digging the working buttons on the Gant jackets. Slick.

    i’m with newgrass…the billykirk stuff makes me drool.

    I’m really diggin’ the Billykirk items–5th photo down.

    I have to get some of the Vael Project boots. I need ’em now.

    It almost looks like they faked working buttons by having the last button permanently unbuttoned. If this be true, then wow, bold move.

    I wasn’t sure about the Mark McNairy fun shirts until I saw it on someone in the above picture. Now I really want one……. or several.

    The Gant jacket workable buttons are very much for real.
    Those babys are done at Portugal’s finest producer of constructed garments, it’s all cricket, trust me.

    This is the guy Mort was shooting in the above photo:

    I love that functioning buttons with colored threading on blazers are being offered more and more now on off the rack.

    This trade show looked like a great time. Thanks for sharing!!

    George on September 9, 2009 11:31 AM:

    Spectacular. You are blessed!

    How do you not get jaded/bored when all of these lines are going for the same thing? Not that I DISLIKE any of it, really, but what makes Gant better/different than McNairy, or Relwen better/different than J Crew?
