Autumn chill in the air as we wind down October 2012 means that before long winter winds will arrive in Victoria – cue the arrival of Spiewak, of one of our strongest ranges of seasonal outerwear options at both Still Life For Him & For Her.
Founded in the autumn of 1904 in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, Isaac Spiewak begin his outerwear empire outfitting the dockworkers on New York’s booming waterfront in handmade sheepskin vests. More than a century later, Spiewak & Sons has grown into one of the premier names in uniform workwear. The authentic industrial line has been trusted by the soldiers of WWI and WWII and is currently worn with pride by thousands of police, fire and emergency service agencies around the globe. It’s this authenticity and integrity that has earned Spiewak iconic status as a classic streetwear brand, considered by many to be America’s best kept secret.
With a foothold strongly placed in traditional worker outerwear, Spiewak has a back catalogue of over a hundred years of jackets and coats to inspire them season after season on the fashion side of their brand. Arriving at both Still Life For Him & For Her to keep our local Victorians warm this winter, Spiewak delivers wool blended outerwear cozily lined with thin poly fills to keep the cold west coast air from permeating through.
On the men’s side we have three fantastic options to get our men ready for the upcoming cold – a perfectly cut Navy Barrow CPO Coat that hits just at the belt line with a hood for shelter, a longer Grey version with slit pocketing and the same big protective hood, and a perfectly casual Olive fishtail parka with the coziest lining of any menswear piece in the store.
At Still Life For Her the Spiewak range for FW12 is somewhat larger, with the iconic (and near perfect) Wool McElroy Parka available in three colour ways, all with removable fur trim on the hood and combination zip front/toggle finish. We’re anticipating a speedy sell through on the returning Beaumont Cape and the stunning cropped Beekman Peacoat in a statement seasonal red has been used for most Spiewak FW12 Womens editorials.
Spiewak FW12 is available now in Victoria, BC at both Still Life For Him & For Her.
