Left Field NYC Autumn/Winter 2011 Lookbook

Feb 9, 2011

One of my favorite local brands just unveiled an enticing line-up in their latest lookbook, shot by Cory Piehowicz in an old motorcycle parts warehouse in Ohio.

Since the 1930's, the quality of garment construction in the United States has seen a steady decline. With the American apparel industry largely still producing garments overseas, finding quality American made clothing can be an exhausting endeavor. Christian McCann founded Left Field in Brooklyn about 11 years ago in an attempt to revive quality American made products and to support the local industry behind them. With heritage-inspired pieces made in what's left of America's mills, dye houses, and sewing factories, no one does Americana quite like Left Field.

Except perhaps the Japanese (see: Post Overalls), which is why McCann sourced herringbone denim from the renowned Kaihara Mills in Japan for a new A/W trouser. Other highlights of the season include domestically woven flannel shirts, 16 oz. heavy loop terry sweatshirts, and pretty much perfect chinos made from the same heavy-weight cotton twill the Japanese military uses for their uniforms. Overall, it's a small but stellar collection that will have me waiting with bated breath for the next six months. For now, interested parties can shop the current collection (which is just as awesome) at the Left Field webshop.
