Akomplice’s Magic Plant Lookbook

by Andy on March 20, 2013

I guess that if you’re going to put (presumably magic) mushrooms on a t-shirt then your lookbook is going to need to look pretty weird.





First off, Worn Again is a damn good name for a company making clothing out of Virgin hot air balloons, admittedly they’re in something of a niche, you can probably count the amount of companies doing that on one hand finger, but they got there first and they probably got the best name, though of course virginity-pun-based business named are very much welcomed, encouraged even, in the comments.

They aren’t particularly cheap (especially for second-hand fabric!), but they look good and you can’t deny that the idea is very cool.

Kiks Tyo x Manik Parka

by Andy on November 26, 2009




Let’s be honest, I don’t think anyone reading this is going to part with $213 to buy this parka, but it does look mighty nice, doesn’t it?

Costiness=JPY18,900 (around $213) Available from Kiks Tyo (limited to 100 pieces)


A three-way collaboration? Hot stuff!

What I really like about this jacket is that it’s so normal on the outside, and then there’s this totally crazy interior to it that most people are never going to see, unless you’re the kind of person that likes to open up their coat a lot… possibly in a park… at night… to women… and in that case having a cool jacket is probably the least of your concerns.

If you want this jacket, then I’m afraid that you’ve not got much chance unless you can make it to the Stussy store in Harajuku (a crazy/awesome part of Tokyo) and lay down ¥73,290, which is, wait for it, about $790 dollars.

Down Coat by Original Fake

by Andy on November 18, 2008

I’ve got no idea where you’d actually buy it (as is often the case with high-end limited edition streetwear), but I must admit that this coat looks pretty cool with those bright contrasts going down the zip line.

It’s a black parka with a big hood!

by Andy on November 14, 2008

Okay, this parka is in no way cheap, but hot damn it looks good. I really like the way that when the hood is down (shown in the gallery) it kind of looks like a scarf, with those little tassles at each edge, and yes, I know that’s a really odd thing to pick out.

Costiness=$432 Buy it at Oak NYC (argh, I’ve just noticed that its out of stock, sorry) [via NotCouture] [click to continue…]


Whilst we’re browsing the 80s Purple store, I thought I’d point you towards this hoodie. If you’re a really old school reader of HYA then you might remember me posting this hoodie in 2006 and 2007. The posts still get a surprisingly large amount of hits (usually from spammers), but its no longer on sale at the buy links on the old posts, so I thought I’d post this new link as 80s Purple still have stock, and because its still a pretty cool hoodie, the bullet on the zipper is a great touch. Oh, and its fake fur, in case you were wondering. I know that celebritee day has been and gone, but in the gallery there is a picture of Jessica Alba wearing this hoodie, which is, y’know, a thing.

Costiness=$110 Buy it at 80s Purple

Boddington coat by Obey at 80s Purple

by Andy on November 5, 2008

I’ve turned into a big fan of Obey ever since I bought one of their coats in Hong Kong back in February (which I near-inexplicably haven’t posted here). They’re reasonably priced, high quality, well cut, and just look generally damn good, as the coat above attests. I can almost guarantee that it’ll keep you warm in winter too, I know my one certainly does.

Vans x Boost Mobile Jacket

by Andy on November 4, 2008

In collaboration with Boosted, Vans Outerwear is proud to introduce the Vans x Boosted Program. Designed for fast and easy communication on the mountain, the program is available in the Grunt Insulated LTD Jacket and the Down Supreme LTD Jacket. The jackets are embedded with Boosted branded Bluetooth technology that seamlessly links your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone and favorite MP3 device. The stereo headset allows for convenient use on your mobile phone while listening to your favorite tracks, without interrupting your ride.

How cool is that? I know that there are other brands out there that have put bluetooth technology into their jackets before, but I still think its really cool, and a nice looking jacket too. I’ve haven;t snowboarded much before, so I’m probably not the best to judge, but how often do people make calls when they’re on the slopes? I guess that using it to play mp3s would be pretty awesome when you’re snowboarding though.

Woodburners coat by Sitka from Hoodie People

by Andy on October 10, 2008

Okay, I’m going to try again with hoodie People (the people who sells hoodies), hopefully this time I’ll get the price right!

I love, love, love the brass clips closures that go over zip on this coat, they really add something to the overall look of this coat, I don’t know why, but I feel like the brass makes the coat seem as if would keep me warmer than if they weren’t there, enough though I know that makes no sense at all. The braided leather hood drawstring is a nice touch too.

Costiness=$143 (although when I bring it up in FireFox it tells me $72.14) Buy it at Hoodie People


Winter Jackets from Original Fake

by Andy on October 3, 2008

I saw these jackets by streetwear label Original Fake on HighSnobriety (amongst a zillion posts about sneakers and logo tees) a few days ago and really liked their look, especially with the subtle integration of the Kaws ‘X’, it doesn’t get more subtle than black on black!

Unfortunately the chance of you picking up one of these coats is pretty darned slim, seeing as the HS blog post only mentions them being released at a single shop in Japan. I see this kind of thing all the time in the streetwear world, releasing products in maybe one or two stores when there’s worldwide demand for them, and it seems pretty odd to me, I know that keeping things limited helps to hype the brands and their products, but it does seem like an awful lot of effort to design and produce items only for so few people to be able to actually buy them.

Printed raincoat by Gene Ho

by Andy on July 16, 2008


I don’t actually think that its possible to buy this raincoat, it seems like more of an art piece to me (in the context of the artists other pieces), but I really like the idea.Check out a small bio at Culture Push [via The Trendy Girl which I got to through notcot]


Fleece by Hellz Bellz @ Karmaloop

I had a friend at university called Helen (seen here prior to a cracker-eating contest… I won), who, whenever she did something surprising, I had a massive urge to shout “hells bells Helen!” But I resisted the urge because she was smart and I presume she would have cut me down in an instant for using such an obvious and over-used phrase. Seriously, I stopped myself from saying that for three years!

I like this fleece coat but I’ve got a bit of writer’s block at the moment so I’m afraid you’ll have to make do with the blurb:

Double breasted and ruffled sweater jacket with oversized hood, Mexican blanket lining, and inner button stash pocket; 80% cotton, 20% polyester.

The Hunter Jacket by Orisue @ Karmaloop

The Hunter Jacket by Orisue @ Karmaloop

Even though the sun seems to be making a few more frequent appearances in the skies above Cumbria, its still a little chilly, and a warm jacket is still certainly needed on evenings out. I am slightly concerned by the lack of fitting on this jacket, it just seems to billow out on the model even though he’s wearing a medium, but I really like all the other stuff that this jacket has got going on, like those three top buttons and the funneling on the neck. One odd thing to note is the “croc-skin mohawk,” presumably the crocodile skin is fake, but you can judge for yourself.
The Hunter Jacket by Orisue @ Karmaloop

Have some blurb:

The Hunter Jacket features a cotton composition, the Orisue leather logo patch on the chest, 4 flap pockets with detailed stitching, the bottom 2 flap pockets also have a side pocket opening, hood drawstrings, detailed stitching on the cuffs, and a croc-skin Mohawk.

Croton Storm by Spiewak @ Karmaloop

by Andy on March 27, 2008

Grey Croton Storm Jacket by Spiewak @ Karmaloop

It’s a pretty understated kind of a coat, so I don’t really feel as if there’s that much I can say about it, but it does look like a quality piece that would fit nicely into any wardrobe.

The Croton Storm Jacket features a water proof breathable body, taped seams. The shell is tekora CL 100% nylon, the lining is mesh and taffeta. The piece also features 6 front pockets, a hood in the collar, M-65 style shoulder straps and the Spiewak logo on the right sleeve.

Marker Jacket by G Star Raw

Marker Jacket by G Star Raw

Remember when I asked about a year ago in a poll whether you guys wanted to see more outerwear on the site, you said yes and I didn’t really up the output of outerwear? Well, here’s a little something to attempt to redress the balance.

It isn’t exactly an eccentric jacket, but the styling is really impressive, simple but well cut, with a few interesting details to keep you interested. Stocks seem pretty limited at the moment, but maybe they’ll get more in at some point.

Disappearing Act

by Andy on March 10, 2006


A couple of days ago I tagged a hoody by Addict to my thinking I might use it for a future post, and then just a couple of hours later, I get an e-mail from the good folks at Jungle Life told me to check out the new camo line from Addict. Great minds, eh?

I was actually going to highlight a different product, but I’ve gone off it a bit now, it feels a bit hip-hop to me, whilst the camo range is a bit more Ian Brown. At first I found myself not too into the whole camo thing, I don’t think it would suit me, but I can imagine it looking good on a lot of people, so this is my altruism for the day. There’s various styles available, but I picked this track jacket as an example.

Costiness= £64.99 (£5 cheaper than the official addict store…) from Urban Industry.
