Supreme x Levi's, looks like Carhartt to me.

Supreme and Levi's have just teamed up to do a Winter capsule collection for this season. The collection includes overall's, 505 zip-fly canvas jeans, a quilted denim shirt and Bell hat.
It also includes this fitted Trucker jacket. 

Fitted Trucker Jacket
This is the Carharrt Nimbus pullover that I own and wore to university today.

Quite similar aren't they? The maple leaves in the pattern, the streaks of white amongst the green and khaki, the overall camouflage is uncanny.

It got pointed out to me today and I just wanted to bring it to attention. I can't tell you when this Carhartt coat is from as I actually bought it from eBay around two years ago.

Maybe this is a coincidence? Maybe this is Supreme taking inspiration from Carharrt? Maybe it's both brands taking inspiration from the great outdoors? They always say great minds think alike. Maybe too alike?

Christmas Wish List

Seeing as I haven't posted anything on here for a while (I hate you university), and it's coming up to that joyous time of year when we get given stuff we can't afford ourselves, I thought I'd write a little wish list for you all to have a look at.

As I've been extra good this year, I think it's time that I got some amazing presents so here's my top ten and where you can find them!

10. Nike Sneakerboot 

Such a beautiful modernised silhouette for one of the classics. Air Max 90s have always been a staple in my trainer collection and these just take them to a whole new level.


9. Stussy Sport Satin Jacket

Luxury is the main element in this jacket, with the red satin lining just topping it off as one of my Christmas must-haves. The detailing is superb with the tiny embroidered logo on the bottom right of the arm and the little Stussy label on the bottom of the jacket. 

Urban Outfitters

8. Carharrt X' Sid Pant in Camo Isle

These chinos are one item I can truly say I have been in love with. These have been on my wish list for so long now I can't even tell you and this colour is just beautiful. Unfortunately, and it's a big unfortunately, they are completely sold out in the camo. So Santa, you already know for next year now right?


7. Carhartt x A.P.C Logo Shirt

This collection is by far one of my favourites this year, keeping it clean and simple, just how it should be. You can read my post on this collection if you want to, however, just going to say here that I will love you forever Santa if you bring me this.


6. Fjallraven Kanken

My trusty little Kanken is finally starting to look a little shabby now after nearly two years of use, so maybe it's time Santa brought me a new one. This Mud/ Putty colour is the perfect winter colour combination, neutral and natural, which will go with pretty much anything.

Oi Polloi

5. Undefeated 13 Stripe Long Sleeve

Stripes, stripes and more stripes in my book. I love this shirt, with the embroidery on the front and back, and detailing on the bottom of the arm. The red is kind of festive too, much better than wearing an embarrassing Christmas jumper at the dinner table. Also available in Burgundy with Navy stripes.


4. Nike Pro Safari Moves Leggings

If there if any reason to get yourself to the gym after a Christmas of eating selection boxes it is these leggings. They are stunning. Even if you don't need to lose those extra pounds, these will make you want to go to the gym just to show them off. These leggings and motivation please Santa.


3. Patta Cord Crewneck

There is reasoning behind why this item is on my wish list...because it is perfect. Everything Patta is encapsulated in one sweatshirt, clean, bold, straightforward streetwear. The fact that it is now freezing and I need to layer is also partly why I need this.

£75.34 (€90)

2. Penfield Eska Down Insulated Shirt

Warmth, style and polka dots! `The insulated shirt from Penfield is the perfect outer layer, part of the new Penfield 'Blue Label' range for A/W 13. Being both functional and on trend with the polka dots, it's perfect to bring some Christmas cheer. 


1. Asics Gel Lyte III

Last but not least is the number one on my wish list, Asics Gel Lyte III. As part of the "Christmas Pack" from them it's quite appropriate for them to be number on my list. Festive colourways with the bright red mixed with soft grey on the midsole and silky gold lining. This shoe from the pack represents Santa himself, so surely he'll bring me this at least?! 


So there you go Father Christmas, now you know what to bring me this year I expect no lame presents that you have to pretend you love even though you wish your Nan had put the receipt in the box with it.
