With the weather’s unpredictability, we’ve gone full gorpcore for this week’s Wellgosh Wears to keep you warm, dry and stylish. The sleek, black bucket hat from Norse Projects kicks us off, with a super lightweight polyester construction that boasts a GORE-TEX membrane to keep your head dry, with a 360 flat visor for protection from the sun and an adjustable chin strap to cover rainy, hot and windy weather. A subtle printed branding promotes the clean design, for a streetwear-friendly look. This pairs naturally with the Nunk Shell jacket from Norse, crafted from recycled polyester with a windproof carbon layer and GORE-TEX® waterproofing. The Nunk takes inspiration from mountain parka jackets worn in the 60s and has four large utilitarian pouch pockets to keep your valuables dry. This coat has a dual zip fastening with a snap button placket, an adjustable peaked hood and touch-fastened sleeve cuffs for the perfect fit.
For a cosy middle layer, who better to provide an outdoor-ready sweater than Japan’s camping specialists; Snow Peak. This heavyweight, relaxed-fit crewneck sweatshirt is crafted from 100% recycled cotton in a tidy, minimalist design. Two hidden pockets can be found at the side because functionality doesn’t mean a compromise on style. Continuing the theme, we’ve taken the Fly The Flag Responsibili-Tee from California’s Patagonia in a relaxed fit, with a flying fish logo on the front and back of the t-shirt referring to the campaign of the same name which manufactures all the pieces in the collection using recycled materials and a huge percentage less water and CO2.
On Ardy’s lower half, the Easy cargo pants from Japan’s orSlow showcase a relaxed, straight-legged silhouette with a durable cotton construction that’s sure to last the test of time. These handcrafted trousers have a comfortable elasticated waist, with a secure press-stud and zip fastening. A drawstring allows a custom fit without a belt, with other details including two utility cargo pockets, two side pockets and dual rear pockets, one of which features a woven logo. On foot, the Air Mada takes a retro silhouette from the Nike ACG archive and reimagines it with a hard-wearing construction in an eye-catching colourway. A chunky sole makes these shoes ready for any adventure, even if it’s just to the shops.
