KITH's latest offerings might be your best weapon for battle against the impending cold.

The inspiration for the new "Ops" collection came from 1940s Japanese military pieces. The vintage aesthetic influenced the color palette and overall design of the utilitarian pieces. To capture the authentic faded look, KITH even developed a special washing technique.

The selection includes a range of outwear that includes hooded parkas, quilted jackets, and anoraks. It also features tops and bottoms like ponchos, hoodies, and cargo pants that were made with materials like heavily washed cotton riptop and chemically washed terry. Each style was designed with a connective thread of stitches, patterns, and hardware to create the distinct uniformity of the battalions.
