Warm weather and clear blue skies mean it’s time to get out of hibernation mode and get into road trip mode. Taking inspiration from a life lived to the fullest, Seattle-based brands Coal Headwear and Lost Lands, a small batch producer and designer of handmade menswear, have teamed up to launch a capsule collection with Pacific Northwest coast road tripping in mind.
“Coal is a classic Seattle brand focused on bringing high-quality products to a laid back, yet discerning customer, traits that are right in line with the high-quality, hand build styles I do with Lost Lands,” said Matt Noren, Lost Lands’ Founder and Designer. “This, combined with our mutual adoration for being active participants in outdoor activities, makes Coal and LL great partners for collaboration.”
Featuring all the functional pieces of a PNW surfer’s summer wardrobe, the capsule includes a classic pocket tee, crewneck fleece, zip hoody, Bedford cord Dad Hat and two different cuffed beanies, all Made in the USA by hand. “The pieces are not too technical, wearing well in drizzly coastal clouds or sunny breaks… the overall look took on a heritage athletic look with a vintage coastal vibe. We used classic materials in key basic silhouettes. We wanted to utilize tried and true fabrications, soft fleece for the hoody and crewneck, hard-working Bedford cord for the caps, and universal acrylic for the beanies,” said Coal Headwear Design Director Jenn Nelson about the capsule collection.
The Coal x Lost Lands capsule collection will be available exclusively online and in-store at Seattle-based retailer Wayward, which you may have read about in RANGE Magazine Issue Eight, starting today, May 31. You can also check out pieces from the collection at the product release party tonight from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. at Coal Headwear / C3 shop in Seattle, where you’ll also be able to view a short film and photography exhibit featuring 35mm photo prints of waves and adventure that will benefit the Surfrider Foundation.
