Zanerobe Seven Foot Shirt

Communion is loving the Seven Foot shirt by Australian superbrand Zanerobe! We have a few different colors and prints of the shirt, and are currently drooling over the Kama Sutra print. (It sounds more provocative than it actually is, we promise!) The best thing about the Seven Foot shirt is the elongated length, which beautifully compliments the brand’s famous drop crotch pants. The piece comes in short and long sleeve, and is super breathable and lightweight making it perfect for all seasons. It’s also 100% cotton, so it’s easy to care for. Come check out these great shirts in person, available in the shop now!

Neuw for men

“The ideas behind Neuw originally started to take form in Brussels, Belgium on a street called Nieuwlandstraat. that’s where the brand name comes from. the initial process was like starting a band or writing a novel. first you study the past masters, then you extract the best bits, revise them and make them yours.

For us, this wasn’t quick or easy. we spent years traveling, collecting and examining every detail of thousands of vintage garments that had endured the tough test of time in mines, on fields and on big city streets. every pair of jeans we make is based on this research.

But, rather than just replicating what once was, we adapt our details, patterns and fabrics to be right for now. we call this process vintage revision. to us, it’s just like punk rock. built on a foundation of ancient blues but delivered with a sense of urgency and passion for the zeitgeist. Neuw and vintage revision is about creating modern jeans based on classic culture and proud craftsmanship that we love.”

Communion loves Neuw because of their innovative way of updating vintage styles that have remained intact over decades of wear. The solid blacks, greys, and muted tones mixed with interesting textures and weaves completely compliment the way us Portlanders have to live our days here spicing up the rain and dark weather. Monochrome with a twist. We hope you love these pieces as much as we do!
