Acapulco Gold are definitely one of my favourite streetwear brands, and the second delivery of their Spring range, which landed in the UK this week, is testament to just why I hold them in such high regard.
Combined with the first drop, it makes for a pretty impressive collection, with a standard tees and caps and a few other more interesting pieces. The tigerstripe camo Utility Pants are an instant winner for me (though unfortunately they don’t seem to have made their way to the UK just yet), made in the USA and finished with BDU-style buttons and branding, completing the military look. The Shaving Point Coaches Jacket is a strong look too – a step further than the usual ill-fitting printed variety, it comes with a more tailored cut, soft flannel lining, and stitched ‘AG’ lettering on the chest. The ‘A’ logo snapbacks seem to have garnered most of the attention so far, particularly the tan and navy Hawaiian numbers, which bare more than a slight resemblance to the Hawaiian print used by Supreme on their spring/summer pullovers, shorts, and camp caps – perhaps a little too close to home for former employees of the other New York brand.
Added to the tees, pullover hoods, and crewnecks that came with the first delivery, there are plenty strong pieces to choose from. The range is available in the UK now from Angry Daves and Urban Industry, check out the lookbook below.
