The International Stussy Tribe will be recognizing both past and present this Holiday 2012 season as part of a capsule collection highlighting the IST culture. The all encompassing collection boasts a range of items including paisley button-up shirts, sweats (hoodies, crewnecks, pants), caps, and a slew of accessories bearing some of Stussy’s iconic graphics including 8-ball, SS link, Reggae Lion, Surfman and more.
The crown jewel of the collection is a piece deeply rooted in the IST movement: the classic Varsity jacket. It’s been 4 years since the IST jacket was last seen, but its triumphant return takes center stage here. The Made in USA IST Varsity jacket was made in collaboration with purveyors of classic and durable outerwear Golden Bear. This collection will see 3 variations of the jacket including a North America version to be found at Stussy Chapter locations including New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, Vancouver, Toronto, Las Vegas, Guam and Honolulu, as well as a Tokyo edition to be found at Stussy Tokyo. And getting back to its roots, a special and extremely limited version will be released as a gift to IST members both past and present, as well as friends made along the way.
The IST capsule collection will be available at the aforementioned Stussy Chapter locations beginning in Japan on November 23rd and in North America on December 7th. Each Chapter location will also be releasing in store exclusive items featuring custom embroideries and embellishments significant to each respective Chapter.
