Winter Style for the Apt909 Man
This is what luxury quality looked like circa 1950's-60's. From "Gentlemens Quarters" (something like Officers Quarters) at Kartch's. Made from a blend of black Merino & Australian wool with added detailing on the pockets and neck in brown sugar. The wool was spun in Scotland + assembled U.S.A.
Size men's M
This is one of our special selections.
It's a great chartreuse/moss combo for this long sleeve surfer-style collar shirt from 1960's-70's. Made of everybody's favourite multi-stand, continous-filament synthetic yarn that's artificially crimped in order to achieve greater bulk than ordinary yarns-Ban-Lon. It's good to enjoy vintage detailing that has a modern style.
This is a great style injection into your wardrobe!
Made in the USA by Caramy.
Once you've gone cashmere you can never go back.
This gorgeous long sleeve "V"neck sweater is made in the U.S.A. From knitwear company "Huntington". Circa 1960's-70's, judging from the work menship + materials.

An Apt909 favourite, the Euro underwear top is one of the main cloting items we've selected for this season.

The company was started by Fratelli Prada (English: Prada Brothers) and by Mario Prada in 1913 as a leather-goods shop in Milan. After his death in the mid-1950's, Mario's daughter-in-law took helm of Prada, and maintained it for almost twenty years.
Her daughter, Miuccia Prada, joined the company in 1970's and then inherited it in 1978. With Patrizio Bertelli, whom she married in 1987, alongside her as businss manager, Miuccia was allowed time to implement her creativity onto design.
She would go on to incorporate her ideas into the house of Prada that would change it.
Miuccia released her first set of backpacks and totes in 1979.
They were made out of Pocone, a tough military spec black nylon that her grandfather had used as coverings for steamer trunks.
Prada launched its women's ready-to-wear collections in 1989, and the designs came to be known for their dropped waistlines and narrow belts.
The men's ready-to-wear collections launched in the mid-1990's.
By then the House of Prada operated in 40 locations worldwide, 20 of which were in Japan. Prada's popularity skyrocketed when the fashion world took notice of its clean lines, opulent fabrics, and basic colours.
Prada's originality made it one of the most influential fashion houses.
The signature Prada look ecompassed luxurious fabrics in mostly black, browns, grays, greens, and creams to create simple, yet provocative styles.
This flannel shirt in an example of the beautiful simplicity of the design house.
As always, manufactured in Italy.
