I'm waiting for this and one other jacket with the same type style label to be delivered, was wondering if anyone could 1) identify what's going on with the straps in the bottom left corner(!) and 2) identify the era and any other significance of this 'technical' tag.

Not the greatest collection. But I love the built-in Velcro belt on these shorts.

And who can resist this poncho?

I'll be in Japan next week (tokyo, kyoto, maybe other places). I assume I should check out GIP-Store? How does it compare to Hoods?

Don't plan on doing too much shopping while I'm there but I'm down to check out cool stuff that's hard to find in the US like TNF purple label.

Not gonna lie, I'll probably get that poncho.

Gip is cool, I'd go. Nbhd in harajuku is right next to supreme, might be worth going too.

Tnf standard is the best North face store, carries pl and some mainline (its in a block with like 2 others so check them all out. Regular Japanese tnf is still different from what your get here). Nanamica daikanyama/ nanamica mountain are a touch out of the way but they're chill. If you go to that neighbourhood vendor and Minotaur are nearby.

I didn't shop much in Kyoto but the vis store there is very special /conveniently located.


You can write books about this though, it never ends. If you want more info hit me up and I'll go into more detail. (not that I'm an expert by any means)

old news but I'm glad to see wtaps remaking some of their better gear (imo)

this is a remake of old readypack stuff they did with porter
Image
Image

this reminds me of older jackets they did, and they have done this shape before
Image

I've warmed up to new wtaps but if they could marry their current preppy look with military functionality they would finally have a niche again. They really need to get a better graphic designer too

@BIGBEE here it is! Not sure about what season it's from, just got it a couple months ago off Rakuten. Has nylon padding on the arms along with epaulets on the shoulders, fully wool so its nice and warm, loved wearing it throughout the winter.

Is there a way to determine what season my older wtaps stuff came from. I just got a jungle jacket in and was curious. If I post my collection would you guys be interested?

you can't know the specific season it came from. some of the really old stuff has the year on the tag. I have a hat from 99 that says so on it. its pretty easy to tell what "era" things came from

I'm interested in your collection

Welcome to my world of Wtaps. Its a small collection but I honestly love wearing (almost, more on that later) every piece. They get regular wear and each time it brings me joy to put them on. It's not a massive collection but its mine, I hope you enjoy browsing.

This collection will be organized in the chronological order I acquired each piece.

Piece: Olive Ripstop Cargo BDU's
Price: $90, used, grailed
Favorite bits, bobs, features, and details: Convertibles! Transforms to a loose and longish short, good weight, baggy, waist adjustments
Notes: My first ever piece of Wtaps, picked them up quite awhile ago and loved them. A little too big and long on me but the waist adjustments help and I pin roll or put them to shorts. I wear them often in spring and fall. No branding whatsoever besides the shorts tab and the ankle adjustments.

Piece: Olive Vans x Wtaps Authentics LX Crossbones
Price: $80, near deadstock, grailed
Favorite bits, bobs, features, and details: I love the embroidery, box, and woven label (I'm a sucker for them)
Notes: Purchased long after the BDUs. My first pair of collab vans and I love them too. Wear them very often and it can be seen from the inner heel wear (I think it makes them look cooler, wabi sabi)

Piece: Olive WTVUA Crew Sweat
Price: ~$150, retail, Darkside Initiative
Favorite bits, bobs, features, and details: Super soft, the print is nice, fits my chubby body super well, embroidery on both sleeves, fun necktag
Notes: Purchased while at Darkside Initiative while on vacation visiting family in CA, really soft and I like the stocky and short cut on me. I wear it often.

Piece: White/Blue Wtaps x Vans OG Era LX
Price: $85-15 because they came not new, new?, Project Blitz
Favorite bits, bobs, features, and details: Love the sole and how its not just a basic white shoe, goes well with my all blue fits I've been on, woven label
Notes: Bought them and wear them often. Good shoe but the outside midsole is separating really bad, even for vans.

Piece: Blue Made in USA pocket Tee
Price: $27, used, grailed
Favorite bits, bobs, features, and details: Good color, nice feel
Notes: Its too small!!! I don't know why I let the guy tell me it will fit just the same as a Supreme size L when its a Japan size 3. I tell myself I'll wear it when I slim down more (I've already lost like 12lbs :D). It had a stain and the pocket stitching came undone. Good thing it was cheap.

Piece: Red 23RES/Crossbone Tee
Price: $30, used, grailed
Favorite bits, bobs, features, and details: Love the back print, baggy, embroidery on back and sleeve
Notes: Said it was XL, it seems waaaay bigger than that as it is very baggy on me, but it looks kind of cool. Really faded but overall in great condition considering how old it seems. I wear it fairly often. It's wrinkled because it was in my laundry bin.

Piece: Olive Short Sleeve BUDS
Price: $80, basically new, grailed
Favorite bits, bobs, features, and details: Love the feel, the look, everything, classic Wtaps piece, woven label is tite, the shoulder tag is interesting but I've come to love it.
Notes: The hunt is semi over, I finally own an olive BUDS. I love wearing this and I love the look. Soooooo happy to own and wear it. Looks and fits great. One of two of my most recent purchases.

Piece: Black Empire's Service Jungle Jacket
Price: $130
Favorite bits, bobs, features, and details: Everything, contrasting camo under pocket flaps and sleeves, dual pockets and big expandable ones, the back print bones, the name tapes (I love the empire's service tag), the small label below, everything.
Notes: I love owning this jacket, its faded and old and the inner label is falling apart but I love it. I love wearing it, I love owning it, I love it. Pictures don't do it justice imo, maybe they do lol.

Thank you for reading/looking, I hope you enjoyed seeing what I have. If you want more detailed shots of anything let me know and I'll be happy to get them. I'll try and do better to post pics of the clothes on me but my dorm is small and my roommate's side of the room is messy making it hard to take a good fit pic. Thanks for looking and have a great day!
