The main line by A Bathing Ape is slacking for years but their recent collection has to be the worst I’ve seen from the brand so far. The last piece I bought was a blue camp lightweight jacket from the SS14 season and I am quite pleased with it nevertheless. But according to some of my friends the quality got worse and if you follow my posts about by you know that it wasn’t too great to begin with.
If you want to order Bape directly from Japan check my guide.
But over the past couple of years the sub-label by Bape, Mr Bathing Ape became more and more relevant to me. They are not trying so far, don’t overdo it with the logo placement and deliver basically the more adult version of the Ape brand. I have just discovered a sneak-peak of their new A/W collection and just had to share it. Always wanted to have some more fashion on the site and this seemed like a perfect fit.
Will probably get the all camp shirt with the blue collar. When you look closely on the first pick you can see that there will also be a yellow camp version of this shirt. First time for Mr. Bathing Ape to use yellow camp if I remember correctly (exempt for some ties).
