Coming completely out of left field, we have collab between the crunchy, off-beat-and-acid-fried champions of quirk, Needles, and one of the icons of American heritage, Wrangler. The collaboration combines elements of various Wrangler MJZ jackets across the decades such as the elastic waist and pen pocket from the ’50s, and the snap top button from the ’60s.
Being that Needles is involved such quirks uncommon to this style garment include a looser, wide fit, and a two-way zipper in place of a regular, one-way zipper. The jacket is available in four different fabrics: a 13oz. sanforized rigid denim, a 13oz. sanforized washed denim, and a soft sanforized sateen cotton in two different tones. It might look like your normal Wrangler, but this is not your normal Wrangler. Not your normal Wrangler at all.
Available from 26,000JPY (~$230USD) at Nepenthes.
