Post O’Alls: Vintage Inspired….

 Post O’Alls 2012

 POST O’ALLS / POST OVERALLS has been well received by diverse range of customers since their debut in 1993. The idea was to create vintage-inspired but practically new work clothes that can match with our love – superbly detailed and beautifully constructed vintage pieces.

Takeshi Ohfuchi, the designer, has huge respect towards anonymous American vintage work clothes designs, especially from 1920~30s which he considers “the very best”- a great marriage of old-world craftsmanship and then emerging Machine Age inspired American industrial design. He believes many of the great American original designs have emerged and flourished in that era.

The first collection displayed 1940s styled railroad jacket in Polar Fleece and earlier pullover style work shirt in heavy weight gingham chambray among other obscure yet timeless styles.

Since its inception, POST O’ALLS’ idea has been remain unchanged-Authentic in details and constructions, eclectic in fabrications with some extra ideas and characters built in, and each garment is made in U.S.A.

POST O’ALLS has its primary design idea deeply rooted in vintage work clothes and other functional garments-such as military outfits and outdoor garments-which are all evolved from work wear platform.

By wearing and collecting these vintage pieces daily since early 1980s, he became naturally aware of beauty in their patterns and constructions, unmistakable designs and unique fabrications -the elements that make those vintage pieces ultra cool and eternal. Those essences were all thrown into the manufacturing of POST O’ALLS

The collection, like previous seasons, remains packed full of technical detail utilising materials more suitable to the summer months such as a lightweight Pima Cotton Poplin and premium Southern Chambray. As you’d expect, outerwear make up the bulk of this collection with the ever-popular Engineers Jacket and Royal Traveller Vest seeing an updated and worthy return. The Cruzer Jacket has been reworked to become the Cruzer 5W, available in a range of hues, authentically demonstrating the practicality of these workwear-inspired pieces, with five front pockets and a double vented back.

POST A’LLS coming soon to Stuarts of London
