Apparel that pays homage to the burnt red brick community building and the lush green footy fields of North Fitzroy wasn’t something we ever thought we’d need.
But it’s here, it’s courtesy of PASS~PORT and Vans, and it’s our favourite collab so far this year. The two brands have hit it out of Edinsburgh Gardens with this one: Custom Vans x PASS~PORT Sid Pro in an embossed red and green brick pattern, a Vans x PASS~PORT Keychain, and Vans x PASS~PORT Bomber.
The bomber has an interior woven label and contrasting white brick quilted stitching on the inside, Vans and PASS~PORT embroidered logos on the chest and neck, custom Vans x PASS~PORT enamel pin on the sleeve pocket, and a large screen-printed digger man artwork on the back. It’s very, very good, and they’re going to sell out very, very fast.
The Vans x PASS~PORT collection will be released on Saturday, the 20th of April at the following retailers: Fast Times Skateboarding, UPS in Chippendale, Lodown in Cronulla, Doomsday in Fitzroy, Supply Store in Darlinghurst, Beyond Skate in Perth, Twenty Fifty Two in Adelaide, Jimbo’s Skate & Ribs in Engadine, and Precinct in Mermaid Beach. Don’t snooze on it, fool.
