@gdl203 did it! After four years of requests in this thread, over email, and Instagram, we’re able to reissue the legendary Naissance Grizzly jacket in both the original brown as well as new black colorways.

A personal favorite of mine, I can confidently say it is in my all-time top three favorite items from the store (and life). It’s a really, really cool alternative to a shearling or other waist-length fall/winter coat, and they nailed all of the details. The lambskin body and shearling mean it’s really soft, with a totally different feel to the heavy and stiff grizzly jackets you typically see, but the blanket lining (and shearling body, and wool knit inner cuffs) make it genuinely warm when you zip it up. The lack of waist belt gives it a cleaner look, opting for some adjustable side buckles instead.

It’s good for hiking in Arizona in January.

It’s good for chilling in Brooklyn.

It’s good for eating an overflowing MEGAYAKI at a New Year’s street fair.

And everything in between.

Naissance quoted us four months for production and delivery with an ETA of November, which is when it will start getting properly cold for most of us. We’ll be wrapping up the pre-orders pretty quickly because of this, closing them at the end of the week. Be sure to use PREORDER15 for your pre-order discount, and post up your pics if you have them!

For sizing, I recommend ordering your typical Japanese brand size, or one size up from your typical US size. My grizzly is a Medium and is spot on.

You can pre-order a reissue of the original brown one here.

You can pre-order the all-new black version here. Please note these photos are renderings and @g transistor and @troika 's best approximations of what it will look like. There are some details we don’t know about – zipper color and lining color most notably, but I trust they’ll do a good job.
Compiling together these now, to send over to Naissance this afternoon, so consider this last call. After some hemming and hawing I'm in for a black one :slayer: :slayer: :slayer:

That's the risk you run into when you wear the same size as Newcomer haha
Hahaha. I saw someone on Luxeswap thread recently sell about 20 pairs of Rota in normal rise size 50 and he said something about loving the high rise much more so I’m thinking he hauled in a lions share of the high rise in 50.

RUGS TO RICHES

Back in FW2012, Stephan Schneider had a collection titled "Rugs to Riches" and it included some legendary knitwear and accompanying scarves (really, stoles) that are seen above. These still command a premium on the second hand market because they're such unique pieces, but we felt it has been long enough to reissue this design, in all new colorways designed and selected by Stephan.

In addition to these new stoles, he also worked to design a new scarf size (still pretty oversized) that features the same design, just half the width.

The stoles are tremendous and really make a statement - you can see above that they almost need to be worn like big shawls, and I'd be happy using one as a throw or blanket - they're that big and substantial.

We're offering the stoles in three colors:

Rugs to Riches Stole in Navy (7).jpg

Navy, which is VERY dark and has black and blue yarns

Rugs to Riches Stole in Blue (7).jpg

Blue, which feels almost southwestern with the turquoise and beige yarns

Rugs to Riches Scarf in Forest (4).jpg

and Forest, which mixes green with greys and blues.

The new scarf size is also available in the three colors above:

Rugs to Riches Scarf in Forest (7).jpg

Forest, which is sampled as a scarf.

Rugs to Riches Stole in Navy (2).jpg
Navy, which is sampled as a stole but will be the same yarn mix in scarf size.

Rugs to Riches Stole in Blue (2).jpg
Blue, which is sampled as a stole but will be the same yarn mix in scarf size.


Lastly, there is one that is so limited in quantity they're only doing it as a scarf, and that is Brick:

This is a pre-order for FW20, so they'll be delivered this fall. Quantities are very, very limited and I know it's already in the thread title but this is not something to sleep on.

You can see all available options here.

Lastly, if you have pics of yours post them up!
