Streetwear staple brand Stussy has gone back to its roots and returns this season with a new iteration of its ”IST Varsity Jacket.” In a retro-inspired aesthetic, the hooded wool garment features contrasting varsity stripes on the bottom and cuffs, while leather sleeves are also set in a different color to bring out the nostalgic feel even further. The jacket then adorns a large “INTERNATIONAL Stussy TRIBE” motif on the rear, with more brand patchworks on the front chest area. Finishing touches include branded buttons, leather-covered pockets and a quilted interior. The jacket was one of the earliest unifying representations of Stussy’s global influence as select International Stussy Tribe members were gifted with jackets as a token to the movement. Available in a black and white colorway as well as a grey and white option, the jacket will soon be available at Stussy Chapter Stores in Japan.
visvim‘s long-standing FBT franchise enjoys another seasonal iteration with the release of the FBT SHAMAN JP. Characterized by its fringe, the FBT has seen several updates over the last few years.

Pushing the boundaries of collaboration a little further than the norm, Stussy Japan has partnered with Honda for a one-off CRF250L motorbike. This dirt bike is an all-rounder that can be used on the streets and will feel comfortable on dirt tracks as well. Japanese motorcycle tuning garage Thruxton was given the responsibility to customize this bike. Unfortunately, this item is not for sale, but it is currently on display at Stussy Harajuku Chapter, followed by Osaka Minami Chapter, beginning mid-September. To commemorate the collaboration project, Stussy will be dropping a pair of t-shirts at the participating Stussy stores in Japan.
