Our second season with the Research. group has us introducing one of their more well known collections, Mountain Research. Much like General Research, each piece in the Mountain Research range is designed with functionality and purpose in mind.
The first and probably the most iconic item in the range is the Game Pocket Hoody in Black. With fishing inspired specifications and detailing throughout the jacket Mountain Research have turned what may look like a plain black parka to some, into a vastly technical jacket. Starting with a water repellent cotton outer, the Game Pocket Hoody boasts removable sleeves and hem, in order for you to wear it as a vest, shorter fishing jacket or alternatively customise the jacket with different sleeves and hems from future or past collections. You really could spend all day going through all the details this jacket boasts, I’ll leave the rest for you to explore.
Next up we have two styles of trouser. The first is the Piped Stem Pant to match the Game Pocket Hoody. Featuring the same water repellent fabric, in a somewhat more classic style of chino. These trousers features are slightly less obvious, including a piped seam with white tapes on the fold of the hem and synch back. The second trouser is the Bootleg Pant which again is jam-packed full of details. Made from a Herringbone cotton fabric the Bootleg Pants feature a zip fly the whole way through the crotch, a built in belt and incredibly spacious patch pockets on the front. These are an amazingly comfortable trouser in a more relaxed fit.
Lastly we have the G.S.T.Q T-Shirt made in Japan using only the highest quality heavy ounce cotton. Originally made famous by the Sex Pistols in 1977 the ‘God Save the Queen’ image is embroidered on the front of the T-Shirt.
I recommend coming in store to have a look through the collection in person, but if you don’t have that luxury head through to the online store to check out detail shots of each item. Each item is available in extremely limited numbers so do the right thing and treat yourself!
