Atelier & Repairs normally spends their time performing a mad brand of textile sorcery in service of upcycling and recycling basically any type of garment thrown their way, but it turns out they can whip up some pretty wild stuff all on their own, as evidenced by this latest capsule of original styles.
Made entirely in the USA from Candiani Denim’s Re-Gen Denim, which is 100% recycled—50% Refibra™ and 50% in-house recycled cotton, keeping in-line with that No New Threads thing A&R does—the seven-piece collection features three pairs of pants, three jackets, and decidedly un-Us coverall.
Starting from the top, there’s a three-button unlined blazer with a mess of pockets up front, a cropped blouson with monochromatic elbow patches and a dope longer piece they’re calling the Luigi Coat, which has a convertible collar and a belt loop at the back for those looking to employ that sort of thing.
In regards to pants, there’s a tapered pair with a double-entry cargo pocket at the right leg, a pair of also-tapered sort-of-sweatpants that come with a very Tommy Hilfiger belt loop at the bottom of the right pocket (so do the previous pair) and some solid easy pants with a drawstring waistband and on-seam welt pockets. Because crotch gussets are basically 80% of A&R’s DNA, all these have one of those too.
Lastly, that coverall. Look, if you’re gonna get a coverall for recreational use*, this is a pretty good way to go. It’s got the proper amount of pockets, adjustable properties where you’d want them and a comfortable, relaxed fit to discourage any weirdos that might want to wear it tight like a superhero.
(*This should only apply to like three of you max. If you’re asking yourself if you’re one of those three, you’re not. Those three know who they are. They don’t doubt themselves.)
The whole collection is available from $295 to $625 at Blue in Green.
