Return of an Icon: The North Face Reissues The Iconic Nuptse 1992

25 years is a long time. Think back to what you were doing in 1992. You didn’t have a mobile phone, your car (if you had one) probably had ashtrays in it and you were probably wearing one of those trendy bubble coats all the other kids were wearing. Some things change, but others stay the same. That’s the case for this iconic Nuptse jacket from The North Face. A timeless item which our mate Richard from Bags of Flavor reckons “doesn’t need messing with”. He’s right. He knows about this sort of thing.

Anyway, to celebrate a quarter of a century of not being messed with, The North Face have taken it back to the old school, releasing this classic in its original colourways. It’s available in full jacket and gilet form and it’s proof once again that the most stylish gear comes from function rather than fashion. Have a watch of this video which illustrates perfectly how the North Face took tech from the mountains to the street.
