Portland, and the Pacific North West in general to be honest, seems to be home to some of the best (and our favourite) apparel brands but amongst the finest emanating from this area is unquestionably that of Bridge & Burn and this is a fact they’ve cemented with an amazing collaboration with Kiriko, an Oregon based brand that uses Japanese materials and craftsmanship.
The Bridge & Burn x Kiriko Collection features a number of superb looking pieces of apparel perfectly suited for these cold winter months and for when we head into spring and the quality of the collection, both in terms of aesthetic appeal and calibre of craftsmanship, is second to none and we’re in little doubt that this first rate collaboration between two Oregon based brands will boast plenty of pieces that you’ll want to add to your own wardrobe over the next few months.
America Meets Japan
This phenomenal series of apparel from Bridge & Burn and Kiriko does a fantastic job of combining traditional American workwear with the iconic, minimalist Japanese aesthetic that they’ve become synonymous with. The Bridge & Burn x Kiriko collaboration delivers an eye-catching, versatile and painfully cool collection of apparel that boasts superb heritage Japanese textiles within a capsule collection that has been designed in the Pacific North West.
Each piece of apparel within the Bridge & Burn x Kiriko Collection is named after a mountain in Japan – such as Kannon, Tekari and Warusara – and you’ll find the impeccable attention to detail in the designs and tangible quality of the materials used in the construction hard to resist.
The collection consists of a number of striking pieces of apparel including a midweight trucker jacket, insulated vest and lightweight chore coat and each one has left us mighty impressed with both their style and versatility here at Coolector HQ. Well made and functional, these are exactly the sort of pieces that will form the cornerstone of your winter wardrobe.
Well Made Wares
This isn’t the first time Bridge & Burn have graced the pages of The Coolector and we’re well versed in the quality of their apparel and design capabilities and whilst it is the first time we’ve encountered Kiriko, we’re sure that it won’t be the last given what we’ve seen so far from a quality, style and craftsmanship point of view.
For those men after understated, stylish and wonderfully well made wares to add to their winter wardrobe, you’ll find plenty of what you’re looking for with this exceptional Bridge & Burn x Kiriko Collection of apparel and we’ve got our fingers crossed that this won’t be the last time that these two Oregon brands will be joining forces.
