Anyone who knows me knows I’m a sucker for a nice Crewneck sweater. And matching shoes will only make it that much sweeter. So when I saw this I had to make a entry about it.
The “Paris” sweater presented here is one half of a two-city collaboration between Kith NYC and BWGH. As much an expression of friendship as it is a collaborative effort, the two crewneck sweaters that make up the “New York VS Paris” 2012 collection feature a warm heather wool body that is lined with french terry for comfort.
The navy colorway pictured above (which goes well Ronnie Fieg’s recent ASICS Gel Lyte III) represents the city of Paris, the hometown of BWGH and its two founders. Other features include navy corduroy elbow patches and a more contemporary slim fit. Completing this item is that red terrycloth “Just Us” stitched across the front to represent both brands and their camaraderie. Fans can look forward to the New York edition in the near future, but for now, the Kith NYC x BWGH “Just Us” Paris Crewneck will release on December 14, 2012 at Kith NYC stores and at KithNYC.com starting at 11 a.m. EST. The price is set at $120 USD
Now that may be a big hit for a sweater but the craftmanship that goes along with the price tag is far above what you normally see.
