Wings & Horns Fall 2006

Recommended Posts

Sooo... as the pieces from the new season trickle into stores, I figured I'd upload a picture of a shirt I bought this weekend...

wh06ho7.th.jpg

(pic looks odd because I took it sideways, and then rotated)

Finally, they fit perfectly. Despite having amazing designs for f/w 05 and s/s 06, I wasn't really happy with the fit. Now it's spot-on. I'm a size medium, and it's very long, but very slim -- I'd say 19" pit-to-pit. It looks great. Also new is the leather detail on the side bottom hem. Unfortunately, the detailing means a price increase, as well....

Other designs I saw included a picture of Jean Reno, with a bunch of weird drawings inside his head, a great Eve/apple/serpent print, and something else very large, and very intricate.

I can't wait to see the hoodies.

argghhh, so what are we talking about now? 85 CAD for the tees?

About that, yeah. :(

frankly I feel bad spending that much on a t-shirt, but they finally fit PERFECTLY so I had to go for it.

I checked out a bunch of stuff at Famous Friends the other day; picked up a black vneck. The fit is definitely perfect now; cut is great, sleeve length is great, etc. There's a seam down the middle of the back on both the vnecks and stripey sweaters I saw, and random other interesting techy details. I like the new direction/aesthetic, hopefully the hoodies will be on point as well.

Those are actually "W+H" (notice the plus sign)... which is the new name for Spruce.

Kinda confusing, but there was a problem with the name "Spruce" hence the namechange. The final idea is to represent both brands as two sides of the same coin (W+H the clean/minimal/basic style, W&H the more detailed/'rockstar' style)... cool stuff either way. I agree, the v-necks are beautiful.

as far as online sales, you'll be hard pressed to find them selling online.

hoodies? think of visvim FBT and stretch your imagination :)

as for online store, i've heard that an online store in europe is gonna carry them starting this season, but i'm not 100% sure on this at the moment. but if they do, the price should be reasonable.. the power of tax free (hint hint)

you saw the hoodies? just by that statement i have an idea of leather tassels + beads at the bottom of the hoody. sounds interesting.

where did you hear about the online store? hope it's true!

what retailers would carry them then, if not online? If anyone was kind enough to point me to somewhere in the VA/DC/MD area it would be very nice.

peasant is based out of michigan i think. they were the one that was advertising their sale here. http://www.peasantonline.com i e-mailed to see what their going to have.

i think nom de guerre will only be carrying the w+h line as i was told that they wouldn't be stocking w&h.

i wish stels in boston still stocked this shit!

Oh wow, had no idea about that difference. "Spruce" is no more?

Right, but all the same products, including the superfuture staple -- tiger fleece hoodies -- are returning, just under the "W+H" brand. Check the back of your new shirt ;)

thanks for posting up minya

didnt know nomad got their shipment yet

i dont find the tees anything special, but if the fit is as nice as u say, that might be worth checking out.. to be honest that graphic doesnt nothing for me, same thing with most of their tees..

i can respect the detailing and quality of their cut and sew garments like hoodies and such

how much was the v-neck all of u are raving about?? id love to check that out

Yeah, the hoodies are in the mail now, but they should be arriving any day now. I'm pretty sure W+H/W&H hoodies were shipped together.

(simultaneously, I mean -- not every store that carries one brand will be carrying the other, that is....)

Just called American Rag in San Francisco and they said they should be recieving their W+H/W&H gear in Mid to Late September. Didn't specify what exactly they're getting.

it seems like japan prices went up for the "spruce" line ~6000yen. hopefully it doesn't go up too much over here.
