Triple 5 Soul - Spring/Summer '08

Triple 5 Soul brings us another collection of great, funky stuff for Spring/Summer. As always, the combination of military-inspired detailing and streetwear aesthetics makes for fresh pieces that combine color, texture, and personality.

Amherst Shirt, $74

Take a clean, white shirt and throw on loads of cool details and you get the Amherst Shirt. Roll-up button sleeves, two front pockets, and epaulettes are pleasant twists on a basic shirt.

Mesa Shirt, $78

More plaids, but not necessarily more of the same. This lightweight woven is done in a subtle khaki plaid with hints of yellow for a subdubed summer color palette.

Tangier Cargo Shorts, $98

The Triple 5 Soul on the cargo short ditches the baggy, over-sized look in favor of clean lines and clever details. The tabs on the hips allow for adjustments to the waist while snap-close back pockets and zippered side pockets make these shorts easy, but not sloppy.

Mediterranean Jacket, $119

What doesn't this jacket have? Button-adjustable waist, buttoned cuffs, zipper chest pockets, button flap side pockets, zip-up front, and moto-style collar. Done in an exaggerated brown plaid, this jacket is the summer solution to handling unpredictable Bay Area weather.
