After Kapital’s successful introduction to Up There last season, we’re delighted to walk you through our newest delivery from the Japanese stalwart. We welcome back probably the most popular Kapital jacket the Ring Coat, yes the one Drake wears, in Black and Khaki Katsuragi Cotton. Worn over the top of a popular classic, the Katmandu Patchwork Shirt in Indigo.

Kapital’s style portfolio is vast, which is exciting for us, it means that as we grow with the brand we will be able to introduce our customers to new styles and silhouettes each season.

Two new silhouettes for us this season are the Denim Ringoman Coverall One Wash and the Broad Cloth Anorak Shirt. The Denim Ringoman Coverall is made out of a 12 oz. indigo denim and features some very unique asymmetrical front pockets along with a slanted back pocket. Worn underneath the Coverall is the Broad Cloth Anorak Shirt which also features large pouch pockets on the chest. Inspired by vintage workwear, this shirt is made from a cotton broad cloth and has an exceptionally soft hand feel.

Rounding out the clothing selection we also have the Gauze Bonzu Hiyoku Shirt and the Jersey Crew Pocket Tee in Indigo which will fade and patina with wear. With any Kapital order it is always a must to order some of their Bandanas and Scarves. This season we ordered the Big Fringe Bandana Stole Paisley in Navy, the Selvedge Bandana with Chief print in Navy and Black and also the Bloom print in Navy and Black. If you want to be as steezy as Drake be sure to check out the collection in store and online now!

Hailing from the ‘Jean Capital’ of Japan, we’d like to formally welcome Kapital to the shelves here at the store. Based out of Japan’s old merchant town Kojima Kurashiki, Kapital strive to craft materials and garments that pay homage to their town’s heritage. Tying in a pertinent blend of vintage american workwear with remade, and reworked garments crafted at the hands of skilled artisans at their home base in Kojima.

This season’s range ties in classic ‘Sashiko’ stitching with the Century 5 Pocket Denim, and Century Westerner Denim Jacket. Covering the 12oz grey denim with an accenting straight indigo stitch ready to be worn in and worn out for years to come. A series of remade garments come in the shape of the Katmandu Patch Shirt, and Denim Western Shirt. Each shirt washed, and worn in before subtle pieces are shifted around each garment and patched in as a homage to the ‘boro’ technique of yesteryear. The patchwork themes continue Tugihahi Football Jersey blending patterned indigo fabrics with a charcoal melange cotton jersey.

Not forgetting Kapital’s signature Ring Coat, this season’s variation comes to us in a Khaki Katsuragi Cotton. This oversized piece of outerwear brings several garments together, and thanks to a number of buttons, ties, and fasteners, this innovative coat can be worn in more ways than one. Last but certainly not least, Kapital have delivered a selection of their Selvedge Bandanas with a Thunderbird and Concho designs subliminally printed on the classic fabric squares.

This season’s ranges from Kapital are now available in store at our Level 1/15 McKillop Street store as well as online. For a closer look at all of the finer details, continue reading after the jump.
