In the wake of their successful Spring/Summer 2014 capsule collection, Comme des Garcons Shirt and Supreme are once again collaborating, this time creating a Fall/Winter collection inspired by UK punk culture.

The illustrious collaborators use classic military silhouettes and patterns to create thick, comfortable streetwear for the Fall/Winter 2015 collection. The UK punk influence shows itself in the line's heavy use of plaid -- including all-plaid pants in a range of colors -- looser fits and laid-back, working class style. The capsule collection is given a boost by Timberland, with the inclusion of a special three-way collaboration boot, available in both black and wheat colorways.

Streetwear labels are co-opting even the most niche of styles to create unique, authentic looks with a fashionable edge -- as evidenced by Comme des Garcons and Supreme using UK punk subculture to create this line of Fall/Winter clothing.
