As long time fans of the superb Post O’alls (AKA Post Overalls) and it’s creator Takeshi Ohfuchi (see issue 10 for our feature on the label interview with the great man himself) we thought we’d drop the wizard of work-wear a line asking him to compile his favourite five. He’s assured us he’s on the case and knocking one up as we speak, so whilst we await his selection we thought we’d feature three stand-out pieces from Post O’alls AW12 collection. Nobody does attention to details quite like this label does, both the quality and skills employed to make each garment is enough to bring a tear to the eye.
Royal Traveler in Grey herringbone tweed
One of the label’s signature pieces that’s based on a vintage pre-war hunter’s design but re-constructed with the needs of the modern traveller in mind.
Engineers’ Jacket in Navy herringbone tweed
This 1930s fully-loaded styled engineers’ jacket is THE classic Post O’alls jacket and appeared in their very first catalogue back in 1993. Pictured here is the stunning tweed version (look closely) which has been a brand favourite since the late 2000s. Father Christmas if you’re out there, I NEED one of these.
The POST shirt in Indigo vintage calico
This phenomenal shirt is Takeshi’s take of his favourite vintage USVA (United States Veteran’s Administration) design from 1940s. He tells us the Vintage Calico fabrication has been particularly well received by his customers too.
