Fall 2008: Triple Five Soul

Instead of their usual street-smart clothing, Triple Five Soul has decided to turn to the East Coast for inspiration. Taking their cues from prep school uniforms and American workwear, this fall's pieces settle on a great middle ground that combines the best of those heritages with Triple Five Soul's smart approach to casual dressing.

Debate club v-neck pullover, $88

Collegiate colors and extensive ribbing make for a great fit and look. A deep v-neck sweater in cotton, this is great over both t-shirts and button-downs. Comes with twisted gun pin at the chest.

Campus zip-up mockneck cardigan, $100

Plaid gets redone in a unique print over a fantastically comfortable zip-up cardigan. Raglan sleeves, zip side pockets, and reinforced zipper placket at the bottom. Comes with globe pin.

Drill shirt, $72

Done in a subdued grey, this button-down has pockets galore: three on the chest and one on each sleeve. Made out of a lightweight cotton with adjustable barrel cuffs. As detailed as the construction is, the soft collar and fabric gives it an easy, unstructured look.

Forestry sciences shirt, $72

Simple and sleek, this understated piece lets its plaid pattern of muted blacks, greys, and blues do all the talking. Single chest pocket, unstructured collar, and adjustable barrel cuffs.

Crazy print scarf, $36

Lightweight cotton scarf with distressed fringe in an all-over print. Unfolds to a large square.

Addict laptop/DJ bag in black, army, and navy, $52 each

These big bags have room for your laptop, your charger, your books, and even 12" vinyls for DJ's. With zippers, velcro closures, and a built in sleeve for your notebook computer, these bags have loads of room and then some.

Tech backpack in army, navy, and black, $72 each

Large kit-pack style backpacks with flaps, zippers, and velcro pockets practically everywear. The side buckles adjust for when you need more or less room and the elastic webbing on the front makes sure all your things stay in place.

Freestyle wallets in army, black, and navy, $12 each

Is your wallet turning into something George Constanza might be packing in his pocket? These tri-fold ones have slots, pockets, and even a keyring. Made out of super tough nylon with a contrast stripe running over the front.
