GThreadz is an independent brand, formed in 2019 by couple Colin and Cath McBean. With Colin taking inspiration from his trips to Japan whilst Dj’ing under his on-stage persona, Mr G; and Cath’s experience of creating clothing whilst working as a garment technologist, the two decided to marry their influences and start a brand together. GThreadz clothing is made in Milton Keynes, England to support local industry; crafted from carefully selected vintage Japanese fabrics for a smaller impact on the environment. The latest collection boasts far-out pattern shirts, embroidered graphics, loud printed linings and some smarter pieces for Winter. Every piece is made in small quantities with no reprints, making each GThreadz design a super limited edition.
Let’s break this look down. First up, the Eminko Bucket hat is a breathable cotton lid with the iconic woven ‘G Threadz’ patch decorating the flat brim that can be worn with a casual look, or a more formal outfit as seen above. Next, we see the Winter-ready and indulgently cosy ‘Moya Funnel Neck Zip Through Coat’ with a thigh-length cut, zip fastening, high neck to keep drafts out, and a multi-pattern trim made from vintage Japanese fabric. The jacket also has two warm hand pockets with a skin-friendly lining.
Under the coat, we see the ‘Genki Reversible Lighter-Weight Gilet Scribble’, a two-sided body warmer vest with a soft polyester quilted side and a much bolder side featuring an all-over ‘Scribble’ print, made from (you guessed it), more super rare original Japanese fabric collected by Mr G himself on his trips to Japan when playing there! Both sides of the vest have dual side pockets, with the G Threadz patch making another appearance stitched to the bottom hem to show half of the patch on each side of the garment. The ‘PRINTED & EMBROIDERED LONG SLEEVE T-SHIRT’ does exactly what it says on the tin, with a premium cotton construction, with screen printed and embroidered logos, available in an array of colours and a short sleeve version.
To end this outfit, the ‘JIRO TAPERED LEG TROUSER’ brings classic workwear vibes, in a durable acrylic and elastane construction featuring a lining with a multi colour samurai, lady and dragon print made for a solid turn up look. These trousers look great with pretty much any outfit, versatile enough for the office, gigs or matches.
