The recognizable Kith Mercer Pant takes on an updated twill and colorway for Fall. Arriving through Kith doors in Forest Green, the Mercer Pant now features a heavier season-ready 20oz. cotton twill that has been preshrunk for consistent fitting. Key features on the Fall season’s Mercer Pant include a weighted twill, knit elastic ankle cuffs, two front and two rear pockets, stitched paneling on the leg, and both water resistant and stain resistant detailing for functionality in all weather. The Kith Mercer Pant in Forest Green is made in New York City and is available now at Kith NYC stores and KithNYC.com for $135 USD. Additional colors coming soon. Check out a closer look here.

After the successful response to the previous capsule collection I did with Del Toro not too long ago, I was more than happy to team up with my good friends once again to take on the challenge of reinventing a new take on a classic style. The goal this time around was to ease the transition into the Fall season with a fully re-done chukka. The Ronnie Fieg For Del Toro Cloud Camo Neoprene Chukka says everything in its name. The shoe is comprised of a cloud camo print that’s seen all over and includes a matching black Margom sole beneath for lasting use. Handmade in Italy, the style features a sport lux neoprene upper that we decided to add for year round use and comfort while details include durable calf skin leather lining, strong leather laces and quality gold riri zippers. The Ronnie Fieg For Del Toro Cloud Camo Neoprene Chukka will hit Kith NYC stores and KithNYC.com exclusively in very limited quantities for $340 USD on Saturday, September 7th, 2013 at 11am EST.

My latest collaboration was with Maine, USA footwear natives Yuketen. I’ve admired the quality of this brand for awhile now and was excited when given the chance to work hand in hand with their factories. I chose a Snake Penny Loafer to transition into the Fall season with the help of Yuketen’s skilled artisans. Each shoe is handmade in Maine and features genuine handsewn moccasin construction with their experienced leather workers. The leather Snake print on the upper is sourced straight from Italy for high quality lasting ability, and the shoe has been fully lined with full-grain bovine leather. Finally to wrap it up, the branded insoles include vegetable tanned leather while below sees goodyear stitching between the slip-resistance all natural crepe outsole and midsole. This exclusive Ronnie Fieg x Yuketen Snake Penny Loafer is only available Kith NYC stores and KithNYC.com starting today for $400 USD in numbered quantities.

White Label 2.0 brings together an upgraded lineup of Kith products from head to toe. First up in the collection is the bold tailor fitted Arena Stitch-down Oxford ($145 USD), offered in Red, Black or White featuring bold “KITHSET” and “82″ branding. Each oxford is designed with shirting weight twill, satin lettering/numbering, and a button closure down the front and on the wrists. The Lightning Bolt tee ($45 USD) arrives in Grey, Black or White. Made with 100% cotton, the tee includes contrast lightning bolts on the sides, a Kith box logo on the rear and a subtle stitched tag on the bottom front. Back by popular demand, two new Mercer pants ($135 USD) in Black or Stone are added next in a lightweight summer twill fabric. All-over stitched lightning bolt embroidery make up the silhouette, along with the Mercer’s ribbed cuff at the ankle and two rear and side pockets. White Label 2.0 also sees the introduction of the lightweight summer twill Mercer short ($88 USD). The shorts are available in Navy/Salmon or Camo/Red featuring the same stitched lightning bolt styled embroidery as the pant, but with a stitched over cuff at the knee. Accessories this time around include a handful of hats designed with Starter ($45 USD). The collection includes a “Just” hat in Red, an “Us” hat in Black, both of which include “Kith” side panel branding, two “Kith” hats in Black/White or Red/White/Blue, and two “BK” hats in Black or Red. Each hat is also offset with green underbills. All apparel pieces were made locally in New York City for the collection. Finally comes a special collaboration with Filling Pieces footwear. The Kith x Filling Pieces Low-Top style ($170 USD) was made in Portugal and will be available in all over Black or White colorways.

Chapter 4 is the final episode of the Ronnie Fieg For Sebago Spring/Summer 2013 collection. Finishing off the line are two of my favorite styles, an all new Spinnaker ($115 USD) and all new Schooner ($130 USD). The Sebago Spinnaker is a classic handsewn moc-toe boat shoe which needed two-tone nubuck uppers and Sebago’s non-marking rubber Docksides soles. The style includes durable leather socklining and is laced with functional rawhide navy laces. The Schooner is one of Sebago’s most iconic boat shoe styles. The handsewn model combines a classic silhouette with rubber slip-resistant Campside soles, while the genuine moccasin construction uses light brown nubuck and soft light denim on the upper. Off-white rawhide laces, calfskin lining, mudguard quarter panels and non-corrosive brass eyelets finish off the look.

The Ronnie Fieg For Sebago Spring/Summer 2013 Chapter 4 Collection will be releasing at Kith NYC stores and RonnieFieg.com starting today at 11am EST.

In honor of the Ronnie Fieg x ASICS Gel Lyte III “Flamingo” shoe releasing this Friday, I was fortunate enough to team up with my good friends over at BWGH for a special apparel pack. The pieces include two short sleeve crewnecks and two special Stanton sweatshorts, one in a grey fit and the other in salmon. The body of each item is made with a lightweight Japanese French terry and features premium stitched chenille and loose ribbing. On the crewnecks, the chenille patches include blue and salmon touches to match the hues of the “Flamingo” Gel Lyte III. Each fit is handmade in Europe and includes recognizable BWGH curly yarns that also follow the color palette of the shoes. The Ronnie Fieg x BWGH “Flamingo” pack is exclusive to Kith NYC stores and KithNYC.com in very limited quantities. Pick up both fits starting Friday, August 2nd at 11am EST, $105 USD for the crewnecks and $90 for the shorts.

UPDATE: The in-store lists are now closed.

What started off as a 1-of-1 sample back in 2009 has evolved into what you see here today. After tweaking this color concept for the past few years, I am excited to finally present the Ronnie Fieg x ASICS “Flamingo” Gel Lyte III. After a number of trials later, the ash grey nubuck that covers the apron and quarter was chosen to represent the color of flamingos before they turn pink. It’s a grey mixed with beige, a hue of the flamingo’s feathers which aren’t always in clean conditions. The style is then mixed with the same grey mesh toebox and a grey mesh panel that’s added under the salmon leather stripes. The transformation from grey to pink is attributed to the flamingo’s consumption of shrimp, their food of choice. A white midsole is added below for a standout effect, while the outsoles include two-tone coloring in salmon and blue. The blue accents fit perfectly and the lining is made of a thin neoprene, a new tech material I have not applied to my collaborations until now. Highlights include stitched insoles that utilize memory foam cushioning for maximum comfort and three lace options of tonal grey, salmon, and rope salmon/blue. As with all Gel Lyte III models, the shoe features a split tongue, style branding on the side heel and ASICS branding on the midsole.

The release will take place on Friday, August 2nd, 2013 at 11am EST at both Kith NYC stores and KithNYC.com. In-store release information will be posted on RonnieFieg.com/blog on Wednesday, July 31st. The Ronnie Fieg x ASICS Gel Lyte III will release in limited quantities for $150 USD.

The last three or four summers I found myself wanting a short sleeve french terry sweatshirt, on some Rocky shit. I found a few options by different brands over the years but there was always something off with the piece, whether it was the fabric or fit, they just weren’t right. The length of the body and sleeves on a short sleeve crew are important to keep proportionate. So I’ve had an idea for this cut for a while, I just needed good fabric and a pattern maker to work with and execute correctly. Along comes the young genius, David Obadia. His brainchild BWGH has become one of those brands that has evolved right in front of our eyes. In a short period of time BWGH has become one of my favorite apparel brands and continues to grow on me daily. His attention to detail and taste in fabric and quality has really impressed me over the last couple of years, traits of a true designer. We starting working on “The Boxer” about six months ago and they’re finally ready to release. The “Just” and “Us” logos are executed separately to emphasize how important each of the two words are in a phrase that will represent the Kith brand for many years to come. The Boxer Short Sleeve Crews are limited to 72 pieces per color.

It all started about three months ago when we needed to design a flag to hang outside the Kith Soho shop under the scaffolding (which is coming down next week!). We needed a staple flag to represent the shop, something clean that we would turn into a concept for apparel and other pieces in the near future. The flag for the outside of the shop came out dope, black with black stripes and white Kith logo. Clean but bold, exactly what the brand stands for. Months later comes the first Kith Flag tee, the first of an ongoing saga that will continue soon. The Kith Flag Tee is limited to 72 pieces.

All three pieces will be available at Kith NYC locations and KithNYC.com at 11am EST today, with the Ronnie Fieg X BWGH products retailing for $105 USD and the Kith 4th of July Tee for $45 USD.
