Our Favourite Menswear Essentials From the NOAH X Mr. Porter Collab
Luxury online retailer Mr. Porter has teamed up with ethically-conscious New York City label NOAH to release a full capsule collection.
Speaking of the collection the brand stated, “There is a lot that can be said about suits. Some people think they’re only for weddings and work. Others think think they communicate formality or are only to be worn when trying to appear more conservative. We’re not sure where all of this came from because, like most things in life, a suit is only as interesting or uninteresting as they individual wearing it. The same can be said about anything really. So with all that being said, we would like to announce our capsule collection with Mr. Porter. It consists of a full range of items from tees to suits. This is how we do it in our own store and we thought it only made sense to try and capture that on behalf of Mr. Porter.”
Explore our five favourite items from the collection below:
Helmed by Supreme vet Mr Brendon Babenzien, Noah is committed to ethical sourcing and production practices, making it even more sought-after on the streetwear scene. This polo shirt has been made in Canada from cotton-jersey and is detailed with sustainable buttons in order to reduce plastics waste.
This hoodie is crafted from baby camel hair – the label sustainably sources the lustrous, soft fibres from molting animals on The Steppe of Central Asia each spring. It has a slightly loose fit and substantial handle that make it feel more like outerwear than sweats.
Noah’s baseball cap may look sporty and casual, but it’s not lacking in refinement. Made from soft, thermo-regulating baby camel hair that’s sustainably gathered from molting calves in the Gobi Desert, it fastens with a leather strap and has the brand’s moniker neatly embroidered on the front.
Made in collaboration with San Francisco’s Golden Bear as a “tribute to the region”. It’s cut for a comfortable regular fit and combines an insulating cotton-corduroy body with supple leather sleeves. Chenille appliqués enhance the retro collegiate vibe.
Designed by Mr Brendon Babenzien, these Noah desert boots have been made in England by heritage shoemaker Sanders, so you can be sure they’ll stand up to years of wear. They’re set on thick rubber-crepe soles and designed in an adaptable tan hue that works with everything from light-wash denim to darker chinos.
Though Noah‘s double-breasted puppytooth blazer has an undeniably traditional look, the slim, slightly abbreviated shape makes it feel modern and fresh. It’s been tailored in Italy from a premium wool and cashmere-blend, and fully lined in smooth jacquard that’s decorated with the label’s nautical crest emblem.
