Manastash was once a Seattle-based brand founded by Robert Jungmann, today running Jungmaven, but since 2005 the company has been in the hands of Japanese owners. Over the years they’ve done some great and funky stuff: patchwork synthetic outwear, patterned deep pile fleece reminiscent of Patagonia Snap-T’s, and some more traditional outdoor inspired apparel. This season’s collection has a more refined tone compared to years past, which I quite enjoy. View the whole lookbook/catalog here.
I just happened to find myself at the right time and place during road worlds at Richmond yesterday when Sagan made his move on the 23rd street climb. Definitely didn’t expect to find myself on international TV coverage taking the photo of it happening, either.
This year Patagonia celebrates the 30th birthday of the Snap-T and to shake things up a bit from the standard but well-loved Synchilla fleece body they employed some interesting tricks this season. Down insulation, deep pile fleece, and other fabrics make up the six piece collection being retailed exclusively by the company- they’re just that good.
