Post image for King Apparel AW12 arrives at Sturban Clothing


I was actually thinking to myself over the weekend that Glyn from Sturban hasn’t been in touch for a while, and then when I started work on Monday morning I noticed an e-mail from him, spooky!

He wanted to let us know that King Apparel’s AW12 collection is now in stock at Sturban, and in the process I found that he is a far better writer than I, so instead of me trying to mumble through telling you about the line and end up telling a story about myself in the process, I’ll just copy/paste what he told me:

As winter approaches here in the UK the aut/win clothing ranges start to arrive and one of the first with their split delivery meaning clothing suitable for the UK’s autumn weather is King Apparel.

King Apparel are one of the UKs foremost premium streetwear brands remaining resolute as ever; to develop and grow a clothing brand independently, run by those who live and breath the culture; to create cutting edge design; to deliver impeccable quality and to retain the utmost integrity at every point. Keeping things exclusive with a maximum of 300 pieces or less produced in each garment and a no re-runs or repeats philosophy to retain exclusivity.


With that King Apparel have covered many bases this season with a pricepoint denim coming in at under £55 the Athelstan is set to sell out instantly. Made with the same care and quality of all King garments the Athelstan is setting a new standard, matt black King buttons on the fly, leather K logo patch on the right rear pocket and tan embroidered triple stitch on the rear pockets, these bad boys have been manufactured to perform and sell.





Along with denim King have produced some custom, cut and sew crew neck sweat shirts in classic colour combinations and killer designs, The Prestige with the King lion head logo sells out every season and this year comes in the new exclusive colour Baby Blue. That is supported by what will become classic designs Reign Supreme no fifty shades of grey here just athletic grey with a yellow print and the new East London Kings in Navy with blue print or bad boy black and orange, if you know your culture you will get these designs.


Enough of the classics I said King had covered all the bases and here’s my key piece and whilst others in the streetwear business are playing safe King drop the Duck Camo Rain Mac, BOOM!!!! I love this piece and will be rocking mine any day. King started from scratch and designed the camo and had the fabric produced before they perfected this jacket. I know King Apparel and I have one of their jackets that I wear everyday in the cold morning walking my dogs, it performs and I know the Duck Camo RainMac will too and not only that it looks very, very, VERY cool, sorry did I repeat myself there ;-)

Of course you can get all these pieces plus more from King Apparel and all your other favourite urban streetwear brands from sturbanclothing.com the only place to shop online since 1999 and still keeping it UK and independent all the way.

And yet somehow I’m almost considered a professional writer, madness!

by Andy on January 26, 2012

star wars argyle t-shirt

Very nice argyle Star Wars t-shirt today at TeeFury.

RIPT drop a Milton Glaser-inspired Doctor Who t-shirt.


Harry Potter Muggle Ale shirt at Qwertee.

mythbusters t-shirt

YMC jacket

Yes, it is more than a little pricey at £95, but sometimes things just aren’t cheap and this is one of those times, and you should know by now that I like the idea of something in a conservative colourway (that still looks damn good) covering over a bright tee, juxtaposition my friends!

Cool jacket from Stereo Panda

cool jacket from Stereo Panda

This item doesn’t have a name, and I think it’s a cool jacket, so that will have to do for now. It’s not exactly cheap. weighing in at a hefty €110, but it is in my favourite colour combo of the moment, black and blue, and anyway, outerwear isn’t meant to be cheap.

GoldenTech Waterproof Jacket by Gold Coin

Post image for GoldenTech Waterproof Jacket by Gold Coin

I get the feeling that some of you will probably find this jacket to be a bitt too restrained, perhaps even a little bit boring, but I’m the kind of guy that is okay with letting outerwear play second fiddle to my tees when it comes to a crazy design, as long as it looks good, and with a waterproof jacket, it better keep me dry too.

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.

Albatross jacket by La Merde

La Merde Fall 2009 Men - Jackets & Hoodies_1258117896752

I don’t think you need to be French to know what this label (which is actually part of the No Star Clothing group) is called in English. I may have derided Slut clothing earlier in the week for their choice of name (surprisingly they haven’t thanked me for that review yet), but with La Merde I can see how it works, their name is French, and therefore classy, but the translation is pretty cheeky, which is a lot like their clothing.

Costiness=$165 Available from La Merde.

Just try telling me you don’t like this jacket, if you try, your keyboard will refuse, as will your fingers & hands, you may even slap yourself for trying to lie to me.

Felt Jacket by Ucon

The page says that this fine looking jacket is on pre-order, but also that it will be in their office by September 25th, so either it’s available now and they haven’t updated the page, or there has been some kind of delay in production, either way, it’s a good looking, understated jacket.

Plains Waterproof Jacket by Durkl

Yay, a waterproof jacket in my favourite colourway (as if you couldn’t tell just by looking at the design of this site). I think I might prefer it if the jacket were a bit cleaner without the two big pockets on the front, but it still looks good.

The Flight Jacket by Gentle Fawn @ Karmaloop

Is there really any point in me telling you what I think of women’s clothes when I have absolutely no kind of expertise for what women want (other than a slice of Andy, obviously)?

Costiness=$74 Buy this jacket at Karmaloop (remember, you can get up to 20% off your order with the rep code AS7594, remember how I used to say that all the time?)

I’m willing to accept the excesses and oddness of hyper-hyped streetwear labels more than a lot of people, but come on, this jacket is U.G.L.Y (Utterly, Grossly, Laughably… ummm, Yorrible? You think of a better ‘Y’!).

Oh, and it will set you back about $620 too, tempted?

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.

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.

Skull and Bone raincoat by Kidrobot

by Andy on September 22, 2008


Byron dropped a tip my way about some new hoodies up on sale at streetwear giant KidRobot, pointing out this one as his particular favourite, and whilst I’m all for bright colourways, I think that one goes a bit further than I’d be willing to. However, I do really like their rather-expensive but rather-awesome raincoat, or ‘Plastic Jacket’ to use KRs own parlance. If this was a hoodie I’d probably be slightly unsure about buying and wearing it, but I think people can get away with a lot more when wearing something designed to combat the rain, as if the public can justify any design as long as they think the person wearing it is just wearing it to protect themselves from the wet, meaning people can wear all the crazy designs that they’d secretly love to in the dry.

Two new jackets from Stereopanda

by Andy on September 3, 2008


Stereopanda haven’t been on HYA for far too long, so I’m glad to welcome them back by actually writing about something that actually hides your arms, which is something of a novelty at the moment, but since Summer seems to be long gone I think its time to get back in the hoodie habit.

SP have two new offerings, one is a classic varsity style jacket in a great blue/white/brown colourway, and the other is a windbreaker which has an upper-body all-over print of Stereopanda’s latest logo.

Oh, and that logo in the background of the picture isn’t photoshopped, I’m pretty sure they actually have those massive letters.

Jiosy Jacket By Diesel

by Andy on August 12, 2008


This jacket may not be all that wallet-friendly, but I really like it. From a distance it looks fairly simple, but when you look at the close up views there’s actually quite a lot of interesting lines and stitching that elevate this from being a typical jacket.

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.

Argos by Brooklyn Industries

Argos Jacket by Brooklyn Industries

I thought we’d kick the week off with something simple that would be good at showing off a t-shirt design with a graphic on it. The way that the stripes run across the body and the sleeves, and the contrast hood lining and drawstring is pretty cool. A 100% nylon garment probably won’t be too nice when summer comes around though…
