While browsing Project NY, we had to get a closer look at COMUNE‘s latest denim jacket. When you check out their website, you’ll see that COMUNE is a brand bent on celebrating “the rawness and imperfections of everyday life” and using that to “creatively push the boundaries of what’s possible”, but we’ve gotta say, this men’s white denim jacket is pretty perfect.
The Terra Jacket in Raw White is a more minimal take on their previous classic blue jean jacket. It features a center front lapel that can either half-mask or fully expose the contrast buttons. The front pockets are streamlined with no flap, creating a slimming, tailored look when you pull this on. Best of all, the jacket retails at under $100.
Reminisce with us as we take a look back at the first day of Project Show, from super-cute animals (what’s a trade show without cute animals?) to terrifying shoes and a superior lounge area, complete with ping pong.
This Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday Denim Therapy will be live blogging from PROJECT NY at Pier 92 at 52nd St. and 12th Avenue, from 9AM – 6PM. PROJECT is one of the only trade shows in the country that offer a dynamic workshop environment where you can experience the process of conceptual design and production on-hand. Stop by and see us in the blogger’s lounge!
Walking through PROJECT NY is like sensory overload–the floors are stuffed to the brim with rows and rows of apparel and accessories. We walked through the entire showroom (yes, it took a while), and picked out five denim jackets for men that caught our eye. Check them out below!
Kuro Denim – Like everything from this company, this jean jacket was made entirely in Japan and oozes handcrafted vibes, from their strategic distressing to their stitched trademark–totally made to wear and be worn in.
Marshall Artist – Inspired by M-1965 field jackets worn by US troops, this jacket harkens military style, but with a twist– waterproof cotton chambray. Definitely a new (all-weather) use for a denim jacket!
Adidas Originals – This sporty Adidas windbreaker jacket is made from lightweight denim, excellent for layering while keeping out the cold.
Just A Cheap Shirt – We love how this jacket channels collegiate cool with a varsity jacket made from black distressed denim, coupled with yellow-tinted leather sleeves and accents.
Rivet De Cru Jeans – The classic denim jacket is a classic for a reason: it’s a style that goes the distance. Rivet De Cru’s incarnation comes with “secret” pockets and Western-inspired stitching for a fun twist on the traditional.
Denim Therapy is here at PROJECT NY‘s Blogger Project (curated by Marcus Troy), getting ready to live blog the latest in denim, sportswear, and accessories. We’ve already been down to the Blind Barber for a haircut, and run into some of our favorite people (The Denim Guy, d.brand, SPƎNGLISH (ñ)!), now it’s time to dig into thethese brands. We’ll have a Doctrine Denim giveaway, exclusive interviews, and more good stuff coming up. Stay tuned!
While we have more great brand coverage coming your way, we thought we’d share this super fun video we put together based on our creative, amusing, inspiring experience at PROJECT NY. From denim to ping-pong games and an impromptu dance party, we’ve been there/done that. And now we’re sharing it with you…
