Junya Watanabe has seemingly flipped the script on his mentor Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garcon acclaim and taken his own course to fame. Coats like this Gloverall collaboration prove why he’s in a league of his own.

He may be flying solo now, but Watanabe never has a shortage of brands and labels willing to offer up their products to be given a remolding only the famed Japanese designer is capable of.
Recognized as the consensus choice for Duffle Coats, British heritage brand Gloverall have focused all their efforts into producing nothing else for the past 60 years, so quality and distinction can be assured. The collaboration features the classic elements of a traditional duffle with American influences in the form of cowhide leather sleeves and a ribbed collar and cuffs.
