Started in 2011 by Keita Ikeuchi and Mihoko Mori, And Wander is yet another Japanese brand that’s just damn good. With a focus on mountaineering and outdoor apparel, And Wander offers an array of comfortable, technical and well-designed garments. Based in Shibuya, the brand has quickly gained international appeal, and for good reason.
Their Climbing Shorts are a functional utility short made from a durable and hard wearing nylon. With a water-repellent coating and sewn with reflective stitching, they’ll keep your thighs dry while ensuring that drivers will see you. Other features include a zipper fly, branded button, patch front pockets, and zipped rear pockets so your wallet will stay put while you’re out bouldering. We especially like the branded adjustable waistband with buckle closure. They come in a Grey, Khaki, and Yellow, and sure to be a summer staple whether you’re climbing a rock face or just climbing out of bed.
Available for $215 via Blue Owl.
