General Research Package

12/20/2016 3:50 PM

General Research Package has made its way to our shelves for the first time. The influential Japanese label has immersed itself, blending a fine line between traditional and contemporary throughout their ranges. Bringing form and function to each garment, General Research creates each piece with upmost respect and expert craftsmanship.

This season’s collection takes on the traditional Yokosuka Jacket or as most of us know them ‘Souvenir Jacket’. The traditional reversible piece of outerwear is crafted from a satin outer with a reversible quilted side. Both sides pay respect to places, landmarks, and mythical creatures with tonal black embroidery in heavy detail. The Belted Duffle Coat takes on its traditional namesake. The wooden body is semi constructed and reinforced at the seams before adding patch pockets, and tanned leather buckles. As an added extra each duffle coat is paired off with a matching vest for added warmth. Their best example of blending multi-purposed garments together is the Phisherman’s Tail Jacket. This light-weight woollen jacket is paired off with a unique fisherman’s utility vest. Each of its zip and pouch pockets will have you ready to pack up hooks, and lures for a cast off on the pier or a night on the town.

Moving onto shirting and accessories, General Research have their Game Shirt. Again as it’s name suggests, this white button down is not average, it’s got mad pocket game. Pouch pocket wrap around the shirt along with finite detailing that runs through to the curved cuff for your watch face to remain visible. Lastly, General Research’s accessories have you covered with their Horse Blanket. Ready to be worn as a poncho or stole, this multi purpose piece is crafted from wool and finished with natural leather straps with buckles. Having your head covered with a classic Cricket Hat with sax and wine stripes from traditional rugby league jumpers of the 1900’s and finished with their signature ‘A’ standing for Anarcho Mountaineers.

The range can now be found both in store and online along with all of the finer details after the jump.
