There are certain partnerships in the menswear world that just make sense — as in, a ton of sense. The Huckberry x Howler Brothers North Coast Jungle Collection arrives just in time to take us into fall, offering up a whole slew of rugged gear picks the next time you need to hit the road. And in the true spirit of adventure — and the right gear for the good times that it brings — we think this new offering is so essential, you’ll wonder how you lived without it.
Both parties drew inspiration from California’s North Coast, an area that’s worth exploring and going off-the-grid when you can. Howler Brothers has been stocked by Huckberry since the lauded gear retailer’s early days, so both parties agree that the North Coast Jungle Collection makes perfect sense. And what exactly are you getting from this fruitful and stylish collaboration? Plenty.
These are dynamic menswear picks for transitional weather and outdoor adventures, from the durable and easy-to-layer Lightning Quilted Jacket to the BBQ-ready Mansfield Shirt — and even better? Specific pieces from this offering are 100 percent exclusive to Huckberry.
It’s tough to pick favorites from such a functional and yet stylish collection of exclusives (plus Howler Brothers favorites) and yet, we think you’ll find plenty to love when it comes time to add some Huckberry x Howler Brothers gear to your cart.
The Stockman Stretch Shirt is field-ready and yet just as easy to wear to the office when paired with tan chinos and brown leather chukka boots — think of it as the upgraded, modern adventurer’s casual shirt, what with its everyday carry-ready front pockets and tailored-yet-mobile fit. The great thing about a partnership like the Huckberry x Howler Brothers effort is that it merges so many things you know and love — including the great outdoors — with a sense of performance and style that’s tough to top.
And among the tried-and-true Howler Brothers favorites we mentioned earlier as part of this collection? The tough ATX Work Pants and fall-ready Merlin Jacket spring to mind immediately, each well-suited for a climate like San Francisco — where Huckberry’s based, and where the weather can turn on a dime. The Howler Brothers approach also values versatility and top-to-bottom style, part of the reason this entire collection presents limitless possibilities. For what it’s worth, both Huckberry & Howler Brothers certainly put this gear to the test when designing & curating the perfect collection.
When it all comes together, as in the case of the remarkable Lightning Quilted Jacket, the results are nothing short of excellent. Of course, those Howler Brothers essentials, part of the brand’s regular line, are worth a serious look as you develop your fall wardrobe, too.
Take the aforementioned ATX Work Pants. Mix and match these classic Howler Brothers favorites with essential Huckberry exclusives (like the eyecatching Unstructured Snapback) and start gearing up for your next adventure — these pieces allow you to go just about anywhere, the North Coast included.
