There is almost an overwhelming selection of first class apparel brands to choose from in America but there are some that naturally stand out from the crowd based upon the quality of the wares that they offer and Iron & Resin are definitely one such brand in our opinion here at Coolector HQ. If you’ve got moto style aesthetics are the front and centre of your thinking when it comes to filling your closet this winter, Iron & Resin are the website you need to be heading towards.
Iron & Resin are a brand forged in California who have a love of all things adventure and moto-inspired apparel. They are the brainchild of several friends who, after decades of collective experience building successful clothing brands, came to the conclusion that it was time to turn back the clock and start anew. The result is a small, hand built collection of apparel and accessories that draws heavily upon the founder’s own lifestyles and experiences.
Take a look at some of the best pieces of apparel and accessories from Iron & Resin for your AW 18 wardrobe and adventures below:
Iron & Resin Landmark Shirt – $145
Crafted from 9.5oz 100% Cotton Moleskin, the Iron & Resin Landmark Shirt ($145) is both soft and durable and it is densely woven in order to help keep the wind out during those gusty days on any outdoor adventure this winter. This classic button-down is reinforced with elbow patches and double and triple needle felled seams are evident throughout to make sure it stands up to any extra rugged expeditions you may head out on. Available in timber and navy colourways, this ultra robust shirt is a real favourite of ours here at Coolector HQ. ($145)

A great piece of outerwear is a must for any winter wardrobe and this Iron & Resin Midway Jacket ($220) is one of the best in the business. Fantastically well made and unparalleled aesthetically, the Midway Jacket is crafted from hefty 9oz. 100% cotton jungle cloth, and lined with a Sherpa fleece which delivers extra warmth when the cold winds start hitting home.
