Over the last few years, we’ve been very upfront about our love of lifestyle and accessories brand Cole Haan. The primary reason isn’t just our appreciation for their technological advancements or design sensibilities, but the simpler statement that they look and feel good. JackThreads—who have demonstrated with their namesake label an equal dedication to craftsmanship and style, despite being relatively new—also shared this belief and the two have joined forces for a limited edition capsule collection. With unique color combinations for each Cole Haan style, JackThreads lends a vibrant, playful energy to the designs, while the comfort and quality remain true to Cole Haan.
The resulting collection—all red, white and blue—employs many of Cole Haan’s staple materials. Most noticeable, the ZERØGRAND’s reimagined hot-melt knit upper sears in a lush red. Beyond this, there is a successful melding of JackThreads’ understanding of the need for reliable staple pieces that still have personality, with Cole Haan’s forward-thinking tech. The capsule collection works day and night or from the office to happy hour.
It’s also worth noting the new JackThreads Tryouts program. For anyone wary of online shopping, Tryouts lets users shop, get sent stuff and keep what they want. The rest can be returned along with free shipping. It’s just one of JacksThreads’ many e-commerce experiments making it easier for people to get what they want without the hassle.
The Cole Haan + JackThreads capsule collection—featuring the Pinch Weekender in Denim/Navy Ink ($100), the GrandPrø Tennis in Optic White/Rainstorm/Tibetan Red ($160), and the ZERØGRAND Oxford in Zinfandel ($270)—is available now, exclusively online at Cole Haan and Jack Threads.
