Aether Motorcycle Collection – Aether is best known for their collection of outdoor gear, but this San Francisco-based company is really all about adventure. For 2015 ,Aether is kicking off a motorcycle collection, and plan to blend cutting-edge style with premium durability. The flagship jacket is the Expedition and with a longer cut, it shares a bit of English Barbour DNA. But, the similarities stop there because Aether skips the waxed cotton in favor of ultra-tough 3-layer Japanese field nylon. This technical textile makes the Expedition abrasion-resistant, waterproof, and breathable. Impact points are double-layered and protection comes via D3O, which has shock-absorbing padding placed in the shoulders, elbow, back, and chest. The jacket is made for those long rides, and is available now.
Star Wars x New Era – After the Uniqlo announcement, Star Wars is lending their universe to New Era for an assortment of hats even hobos will not wear. Using the Sith-Imperial army as the theme, the collection features a 59Fifty hat draped in patent leather with additional black embroidery to have the cap resemble the Sith lord, Darth Vader. The Sith Lord will be flanked by a Stormtrooper cap in white with black and gray embroidery. Both hats will have interiors lined by Star Wars-themed satin. Only 144 of each hat will be produced, so that makes a total of 288 unnecessary New Eras.
