It was just about one year ago that Japanese streetwear OGs XLarge came through with a rainbow speckled Era to match a set of gear, and this latest collaboration with Vans might already have one of its items in your closet. This XLarge x Vans Old Skool comes with a ‘Tropical Camouflage’ pattern that’s something like combining a Hawaiian shirt with an intense early ’90s color scheme that might remind you of the Air Jordan VII ‘Bordeaux’. The time capsule palette and overall visual business might make the best general comparison to the classic Coogi sweaters, yet they look nothing like that either. A curious melange from some dudes who’ve been doing it longer than many sneakerheads have been alive, XLarge‘s latest Vans collabo will arrive in the Far East shortly.
