'The Hundreds,' a renowned streetwear label that's based in Los Angeles, California, recently released its 2016 Fall collection -- bringing together a number of casual styles with a uniquely local inspiration.

The editorial that promotes the collection uses the city of Manila in the Philippines as its backdrop, however the casual styles modeled come from the apparel worn by Californian blue collar workers. With this in mind, The Hundreds uses heavy duty cotton moleskin, corduroy and melton wool -- giving the pieces a durable and functional appearance to speak to the laborers it draws from.

In addition to this, the clothing makes use of clean cuts and quality construction, further showcasing its inclusion of reliable materials and supplying casual style ensembles with more structure. The Hundreds also includes a number of graphic prints in its collection, which are said to be taken from underground urban Los Angeles culture.
