Fall's Coolest Collaborations
Put these three pairings on your style radar. But move fast because they won't last long.
Red Wing x Stag
"We share a similar ethos in offering uncomplicated, authentic, and well-made products," says Stag's co-owner Don Weir of the Minnesota-based footwear brand. The Stag-exclusive boots are crafted from Olive Mohave Rough Out full-grain leather (it ain't suede). The "dry tan" leather is incredibly durable and requires no conditioners. In fact, it's the same leather Red Wing sells to the Marines for military boots.

Roots x Pendleton
This partnership is actually a threesome of North American heritage heavyweights—Toronto's Roots and Portland's Pendleton Woolen Mills are joined by Chicago's Horween leather for a 10-piece collection of hardwearing wool and leather items. The collection features Pendleton's iconic "Crossroads" pattern, which reflects the First Nations teachings and the Native American's reverence for the balance between the mind, body and spirit.
RRL x Schott
Ralph Lauren's old school label, RRL, isn't known for cutting corners. So when they wanted to create the perfect pea coat, they called up Schott, which has been making all-weather outerwear since 1913. The New York-based brand began producing pea coats for the US Navy just before World War II and continued on as the official outfitter until the late 1990s. This coat here is based on a vintage naval model and is trimmed with durable cowhide leather and finished with anchor-engraved corozo buttons.
