Knickerbocker Enlists 'The New York Times' for a Printing Press-Inspired Capsule

New York-based streetwear label Knickerbocker has tapped The New York Times for a collaborative capsule collection inspired by the garments worn by workers in the printing press and on delivery-truck highways. Digging into The New York Times‘ fruitful documentation of history and culture, which date back to 1851, the collection offers up a slew of vintage-inspired apparel that replicates both the age-old paper-boy uniform and factory-ready ensembles alike.

Inside the range, T-shirts in varying muted tones don the famed newspaper’s logo on their front pockets, with illustrations depicting fresh stacks of print on their backs. Cardigans provide a warmer alternative top silhouette in both navy and grey, while a white oxford shirt truly resembles the New York Times staff attire. Standouts, however, are the factory jacket and pants donning fisher stripes, which offer an elevated take on traditional printing-press outfitting. Additionally, there are two factory caps that boast the paper’s signature iconography.

The New York Times x Knickerbocker collection is now available to shop on the latter brand’s website and at the Knickerbocker flagship. Prices range from $10 USD to $295 USD.
