AG has launched a new collection called Workshop, comprised entirely of vintage garments and dead stock AG styles. The Workshop collection is crafted from hand-selected pieces, reimagined, and retouched by the AG design team in their Los Angeles design studios to create one-of-a-kind pieces. The collection features coveted vintage military liners, jackets, and shackets, as well as perfectly aged vintage denim shirts, all retouched with slight design details such as embroidery or modified patterns. Additionally, AG rounded up select dead stock styles to reinterpret and make new again with similar design details.

The limited-edition unisex collection launched last week and includes six initial styles, ranging in price from $248 to $325. Style highlights include the Sage Jacket ($298), a quilted military liner with added field-and-flower embroidery. The Easton Jacket ($325) is a beautiful classic blue French workwear jacket with a relaxed silhouette and chevron embroidery. A style that is synonymous with military vintage, the Blake Jacket ($278), makes use of the classic double chest pocket Army shacket, each donning unique patches and nameplates. Incorporating shades of indigo, the Jasper Shirt ($268) makes use of the classic western denim shirt in hues ranging from deep indigo to heavily faded light blues.

The collection is available exclusively on the brand’s website and in AG retail stores. Each garment has a card denoting the authentic vintage stock and noting variations in sizing, color, and construction. Pieces from the collection are one-of-a-kind and may include mending, alterations, patches, stains, and unique design details.

“The brand is continuously at the forefront of sustainability with its vertical manufacturing and eco-friendly processes, and with this new collection, we are diverting thousands of pounds of product from landfills to extend the life cycle and reduce waste through upcycling. At the same time, the collection offers our customers access to an incredible assortment of truly authentic styles coveted by the vintage shopping community,” commented John Rossell, the brand’s Head of Marketing & Creative.
