Fall Kit N°7 – The Fall Athlete

There have been a number of days here in Vancouver recently, that while not exactly cold, have been incredibly rainy. On these days its sometimes nice to have an easy to wear kit for your daily activities, such as picking up your issue of the Heritage Post we've sent you at the post office, without sacrificing comfort or practicality. From the ground up, this outfit is well put together for such a day. The New Balance 576 are an ideal and comfortable runner, perfect for walking around in all day or for putting up on a coffee table to relax with your favorite mug of coffee. The navy colourway pairs well with the rest of this kit and a good pair of red or burgundy wool socks will sit nicely between these sneakers and a pair of denim, such as these slim Japanese denim from Momotaro. As with any of the Momotaro offerings, they're going to last you ages and wear in beautifully. One of the best attributes to raw denim is the break in process, how it take on the wearers marks and ultimately become your favorite pair to wear.

We recently featured these shirts made by A.P.C. & Carhartt a couple of days ago, and I think they'd be the perfect shirt to put into this kit. They're comfortable, solidly built and look great both with the jeans and this burgundy jacket from Gyakusou by Nike x Undercover. Burgundy is one of the more popular colours for autumn, and as far as burgundy offerings go this jacket is both attractive and practical. Gyakusou's jackets, while built with running in mind, are also perfect for wearing around the city to keep you good and dry. The lightweight fill in this particular jacket will also keep you warm, such that all you may need is the t-shirt. Of course, you could always layer in a sweater if there's a lot of wind or of course– it starts snowing. Finally, to keep your head warm and dry and if you're not feeling like wearing a knit cap, an Ebbets Field Flannels hat is probably one of your best bets. Gastown FC collaborated with Ebbets to produce a well branded option in a neutral gray and black combination.
