WTAPS is by far one of the most well respected Japanese streeetwear labels, building a reputation as a high quality supplier of contemporary streetwear fashion and classic Americana reproductions. And with Japan’s historical affinity with baseball during the latter half of the 20th century, it made sense for the brand to marry its US military aesthetic with a number of heritage baseball items from Ebbets Field Flannel’s range of baseball gear for a strong collaborative capsule collection. Consisting of a satin coach’s jacket, a period baseball jersey and their famous wool fitteds, Ebbets make sure that the collaboration makes for one of the best pairings for 2014. Stay tuned to the WTAPS website for a release date.

Do we still need to remind you why you should switch from that bursting billfold to a card case? If you still haven’t seen the light, we’ve got another option for you to check out. Japan’s Southern Field Industries has some new handmade wallets and if you’re looking to go slimmer these will definitely be some of your best choices on the market.
Both wallets are handmade by Southern Field’s husband and wife team, Manabu and Keiko, who make these wallets in Saitama, Japan. First up is the Flap Wallet which is made from vegetable tanned cow leather with handstitched artificial sinew threading and are also hand dyed with hand painted edges and a coated backskin. The Stud Wallet features a brass stud closure and is finished with the same craftsmanship and details as the Flap Wallet and both wallets come in your choice of black or tan leather.

They might not be a household name, but this bag from Japan’s Southern Field Industries definitely holds its own with the best of them. Manabu and Kieko, a husband and wife team, craft their bags right out of their home in the Saitama region of Japan, using techniques passed down from Manabu’s father who crafted leather goods and accessories. Those techniques are evident in their PX Backpack, a well-crafted waxed canvas pack finished with vegetable tanned cow leather and solid brass rivet hardware. Nothing excessive here, just everything you need and don’t need.
