Slow fashion is always worth the wait. After more than a year, Fortune WWD returns with a new collection focused on fundamental pieces and techniques. Because its pieces are made to last, the way a garment reinvents itself over time and is used as it grows with you is the ultimate muse.

The multi-stitch khaki suit stands out with its exploration of panels and hem stitching. Comprised of a chore coat and khaki pants, recontextualizing a classic pattern made with non-traditional techniques, the entire body of the jacket and pants is constructed with multi-stitched panels while the pockets are finished with a red selvage – giving the two complementary pieces a unique texture and construction without sacrificing durability. Fortune states that the total production time for each coat is 37.50 man-hours while the pants took 30 man-hours.

In this collection, Fortune develops its classic military inspiration, going beyond plainclothes, jungle camouflage and army green, exploring experimental designs in different regiments and units. In the Wabash series, the WWD Wabash Sailor overshirt is inspired by the overshirts of the US Navy, but instead of using cotton, Fortune opts for a 100% cotton Wabash Selvedge fabric for durability and contrast while keeping the iconic back flap. Meanwhile, the Wabash Selvedge Shawl Collar Jacket takes inspiration from the US Navy Shawl Collar Jacket and Type II Trucker Jacket, while combining knife pleats on the front studded with rivets as well as patch pockets on the front for easy access. Each jacket is finished with a selvage line construction and has a full back pocket typically seen in hunting vests. The Wabash line is completed by the Selvedge Carpenter pants. They feature the standard hammer loop, two tool pockets and are finished with chain stitches.

Each piece is made with fabrics from Japan Blue’s textile division, Collect based in Okayama, Japan. Just like every silhouette, fabrics are created with the idea of ​​acquiring more personality and individuality over time with wear.

Fortune’s pleated Hawaiian coat is reintroduced as a cropped coat with multiple pleats in asymmetric panels in heavy premium linen. This construction allows for easy layering even during the tropical “-ber” months and includes the brand’s signature hidden-stitch hand pockets. Designed specifically to bridge the classic ’70s loungewear styles with modern oriental cuts, the asymmetric pleated panels are all brought together with the built-in waist adjuster and complemented by the hidden seam pockets.

New headgear lined with hands-free storage complete the collection. The Patchwork Dome Head Pouch and Flat Top Head Pouch are both reversible hats that can be worn as bags for everyday small items, kept secure with snap closures and removable drawstrings so you can wear it as a messenger.


The Main Line: 1 Fall / Winter 2021 collection is available for purchase online at and in Commonwealth Greenbelt 5, Ayala Center, Makati on November 15.
