Whillas & Gunn: Workwear From Down Under


Making the case for outerwear from the outback comes new Aussie label, Whillas & Gunn. Like all good rugged men's clothing, there's a family story behind the line that starts with Catherine and Richard Whillas. Holding down a healthy brood of 14 rugrats, the Whillas' made DIY oilskin cloth using a wringer mangler and wax back in the day, paving the way for five of their sons to manufacture the material on a large scale. The debut collection packs plenty of New World nostalgia, with classic chambray shirting, hardworking overcoats, hats and sturdy backpacks, and—all in all—gives Americana a run for its money.
