We have been selling Wtaps here at Union for over 14 years now. Yes, it's been that long...we OG baby! And I can say that it has always been one of my personal favorite brands. Even more..I always considered our Wtaps custies, to be the ones with the best taste. Well, this season to me is hands down the best season. They did, what they do best. Take military/work wear inspired gear and subtly tinker with the fit, color and fabric to bring it to perfection.
Ahh..the M-54 with slanted pockets. I am probably as close as it gets to being a pacifist (although I am not one). I mean I'm from Canada, you look up non-confrontational in the dictionary and it's just a picture of a beaver eating a maple leaf covered in maple syrup. That said, there is just something so fucking dope about military clothing, especially stuff taken from the Vietnam war.
side bar...in my description I used the term "hands down" which got me to thinking...where does that expression come from? Well, thank God for Google:
The true source, according to the Oxford English Dictionary, is horse racing. The earliest examples of the phrase come from 19th century sporting papers where horses win races “hands down,” meaning that victory is so secure that the jockey can relax and drop the reins before crossing the finish line.Wtaps F/W 2016 new-release Shirt Tops Wtaps //cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0051/0392/products/WTAPS_Jungle_Shirt_RIPSTOPx_1024x1024.jpg?v=1476311479 2016-10-13
