The last instalment of the 2020 2nd Collection from WTAPS sees the Japanese streetwear pioneers wrap up this turbulent year with a selection of accessories and classic apparel pieces. With their trademark blend of military, collegiate, sports, and workwear influences firmly in view, WTAPS posit a utilitarianism which we could all use more of right now.
WTAPS indisputably take most of their aesthetic cues from 20th-century military influences. But their collections reach far beyond merely recreating the military garb of yesteryear in a contemporary streetwear idiom. Though military-style utility remains their calling card, it’s how they incorporate disparate cues into their unifying aesthetic that makes the label what it is.
Sometimes this is apparent in juxtaposition. The ‘Spec’ logo embroidered on the front of the T-6H Cap is an immediate reference to military IDs and specifications, while the cap’s shape references the classic baseball cap. Touches such as the leather back-strap with adjustable metal buckle bring these two influences together. Constructed from heavyweight cotton oxford in a sandy beige colourway, this 6-panel cap also features ventilation eyelets, the WTAPS ‘spec’ logo printed on the front panel, and WTAPS branding embroidered on the back.
