NEIGHBORHOOD Japan Green Military Jacket
NEIGHBORHOOD.

After another seven days, we return with the highlights from Highsnobiety’s shopping channel, carefully put together by this week’s guest curator, Anders Schans. Regarded as a well of surprising and sometime off-kilter product knowledge, Anders’ curation of product is unapologetically personal, offering you a glimpse into what could well be his own wardrobe. Covering a range of notable brands from our space, Anders breaks down pieces from the likes of Cav Empt, Kiko Kostadinov x ASICS, NEIGHBORHOOD., Vainl Archive, and much more below.

So, without further ado, scroll through Anders’ selection to shop pieces from the sought-after Kiko Kostadinov x ASICS collection and more of this week’s best drops. For more of the most up-to-date shopping news, be sure to hit the button below.

“Well, this is a first. As a project manager, I usually let the product curators work their selection magic. However, this week, that same team has given me the honor of presenting my own 15 drops selection. Having previously had the chance to geek out on individual pieces, I had to embrace some brevity for this one. For my roundup, I’ve attempted to include contrasts. From utilitarian jackets to basic hoodies, Japanese streetwear legends to American workwear staples. Admittedly, my passion for Japanese brands did shine through, but they’re simply too good to ignore. I hope you’ll find some inspiration in the selection, and use it as an introduction to a new brand, or two.” — Anders Schans

NEIGHBORHOOD. Tactical Smock

Tactical Smock

NEIGHBORHOOD.

$775

Shinsuke Takizawa is a genius. Period. For 25 years, his brainchild NEIGHBORHOOD. has been mixing motorcycle culture with Japanese streetwear, and it still has yet to lose its momentum. Over the years, tactical garments have grown to become collection staples, and this multi-pocket smock indicates why. Utilitarian, yet sleek. It’s always worth investing in proper outerwear too. Afterall, that’ll be the piece most people will see you wear over the next six months.”

EASTLOGUE x New Balance Gear3 Softshell Rigger Parka

Gear3 Softshell Rigger Parka

EASTLOGUE x New Balance

$215

“I’m not a big fan of branded techy sportswear usually, but this collaboration between world-renowned dad sneaker manufacturer New Balance and South Korean label EASTLOGUE is honestly really on point. Limiting myself to one piece was quite the task, but this softshell rigger parka is too good to ignore. If the price point of the aforementioned NEIGHBORHOOD. jacket is not your vibe, you have a great alternative here.”

COS Raglan Sleeve Leather Jacket

Raglan Sleeve Leather Jacket

COS

$590

“I know… how did we go from east Asian streetwear to COS? Quite frankly, I’m not sure, but this particular online exclusive is one of the cleanest leather jackets I have seen in a while. Raglan sleeves and a big chest pocket are all the details this piece needs. Coming at a price point that is slightly higher that your average COS coat, the humble opinion of yours truly is that this piece is still very much worth it.”

Grateful Dead “Grateful Day” Parka Sweat

Grateful Day Parka Sweat

Grateful Dead

$92

“In a time where Grateful Dead aesthetics are everywhere to be found, Gowest’s ‘Grateful Day’ hoodie is a well needed switch up. Coming in four Fall-ready colorways as part of the Japanese label’s “Souvenir Series,” this is a great layering piece for the cold months to come. A grey hoodie is a must-have even though it can be surprisingly hard finding a good one. But, here you go… you’re welcome!”

Gitman Vintage Open Collar Long-Sleeve Shirt – Anime Winter Linen

Open Collar Longsleeve Shirt - Anime Winter Linen

Gitman Vintage

$273

“It is no secret, that the undersigned has a weakness for allover graphics. Following the likes of Wacko Maria, Gitman Vintage has got your print-cravings covered with this full-on anime number. Topped off with an open collar, this is the perfect piece to slap on top of a crisp white tee.”

C.E Over-Dyed Little Hall Tee

Overdyed Little Hall Tee

C.E

$99

“Over the last seven years, Cav Empt has dropped some of the hardest pieces to derive from the Japanese streetwear scene. So far, the brand’s FW19 collection has been no different, and this over-dyed tee is a strong example. Charcoal colorway on fleek, mysterious graphics, and most importantly, impeccable quality. At this time of year, your T-shirt game might not be as visible as in the summer, but don’t underestimate the sensation of a subtle flex.”

Kiko Kostadinov x ASICS Insulated Lounge Pants

Insulated Lounge Pants

Kiko Kostadinov x Asics

$335

“The direction Bulgarian designer Kiko Kostadinov has taken with recent ASICS collaborations might appeal to a more delicate taste than his first few collaborations, so no hard feelings if you’re not about the kicks. The Lounge Pants on the other hand? Damn. For an insulated, quilted pair of pants, they are surprisingly smooth, and the green colorway matches the polyester build perfectly. These are the pants you would wanna live in, whether you spend your winters out in the wild, or in hibernation.”

A.P.C. Martin Relaxed Jean

Martin Relaxed Jean

A.P.C.

$225

“Just like finding a basic grey hoodie can be quite a task, finding the perfect pair of blue jeans can be a real hassle. The purists over at renowned French brand A.P.C. are known for producing some of the best ready-to-wear garments, and in this case, have got just what you need. A.P.C. (Atelier de Production et de Création) has been doing this for 32 years now, meaning you can fully invest your trust and funds into the Martin Relaxed Jeans. They’re not too long, not too baggy, not too blue, not too washed. Not too bad, simply put.”

Dickies Ezel Work Trouser

Ezel Work Trouser

Dickies

$72

“If A.P.C. is on one side of the scale, Dickies can fittingly be placed on the other. The Texas-based workwear brand is not to be messed with, and coming in at a slightly lower price-point than the A.P.C. denim above, it’s a pretty good alternative. Dickies’ presence in skateboard culture has been underlined for decades, and its chinos will forever be a go-to for the purpose. Introduced as a new shape for AW19, the Ezel Work Trousers draw inspiration from the classic 873 model. Contrasting knee panels serve as a great homage to the initial purpose of the brand.”

ASICS Gel-Kayano 5 360

Gel-Kayano 5 360

ASICS

$159

“Through collabs with the likes of Ronnie Fieg, ASICS has built up quite some momentum in recent years. After quieter times pre-2010, the Japanese sportswear giant seems to have picked up where it left off. The Gel-Kayano 5 360 is yet another great example of its solid design ethos, and if your checkout fingers weren’t fast enough when Awake NY’s collaboration dropped on the same model earlier this year, fear not. A new, silver-draped colorway of the mid-2000s-styled runner is here for you.”
