Functional and fashionable, the NEIGHBORHOOD Fall/Winter 2012 collection exudes the masculine utilitarian persona that this brand is known for. Drawing upon inspiration from middle-class industrial work wear, NEIGHBORHOOD makes use of distressing techniques throughout the collection.

The outerwear pieces in the collection are memorable. The comfy and encompassing black fur coat and the peacoat, which is given a modern update with the use of quilting, are garments that are poised to be classics.

Much of the collection is reminiscent of American factory workers from the early 20th century. Olive green overalls and motorcycle jackets add to the machinist vibe of the collection. NEIGHBORHOOD finds a great balance between staying true to its inspiration and moving forward enough that the line is current.

The NEIGHBORHOOD Fall/Winter 2012 collection sticks to its roots by creating basics that build off of masculine work wear genres, like motorcycles, military and the outdoors.
