Post O'Alls Fall / Winter 2010

Jul 14, 2010

Post Overalls is a brand that I've admired for a couple of years now, but has only recently become more accessible in the States. Post O'Alls garments are all produced in New York City and New Jersey, and are now being carried in some of my favorite North American shops, including Roden Gray and Steven Alan. The brand's designer, Takeshi Ohfuchi has been drawing inspiration from vintage workwear garments since 1993, distilling it into seasonal collections.

The forthcoming Fall and Winter collection includes many of the same silhouttes Post O'Alls has become known for, with some minor tweaks. These small alterations are what keep the brand fresh but recognizable. Trousers with bar tacks, washed shirts with utility pockets, and simple but functional jackets and vests are the staple pieces of every Post O'Alls collection, and this season is no exception. I particularly favor the quilted vest and jacket, vintage patterns, and layered plaids of this season's collection and the navy quilted tote would certainly be at home in my wardrobe.

Post O'Alls offers a refreshing take on workwear; employing vintage patterns, natural fabrics, and sturdy construction (including triple seam stitching and the aforementioned bar tacks on pants and jackets) to keep you living comfortably in style, even when you have to get your hands dirty.
