Fucking Awesome’s AW16 Collection is, well, f’ing awesome!

November 26, 2016 Alan Lonergan - No Comments

Fucking Awesome has fast become a favourite here at Attitude since its first arrival for SS16, and while the last two drops have been exceptional, this one is truly something special. The brand has branched far out from just t-shirts, also producing a variety of hoodies, two jackets and a crewneck, making AW16 the brand’s widest collection yet. Jason Dill, AVE and co. have really spoiled us this time around!

FA JACKET FA COACH

We’ll start with outerwear, potentially the best items in the new collection (no mean feat to say the least!). On the left above we have the Field Jacket, arriving in a very fitting Military Green colour. A 100% cotton exterior provides a soft yet very durable exterior, one that will certainly stand up against the test of British wind and rain, and the corduroy collar adds a touch of class coming in a darker green. The button-up closure system makes the jacket very versatile, and the two large front pockets and additional chest pocket provide vast and useful storage. The lining is what really makes the jacket though, featuring the Fucking Awesome logo repeated all over it. Fucking Awesome text is embroidered onto the left of the chest in tonal green, and a pin comes with the jacket too, what more could you want!

On the right above, the Coaches Jacket in Black is our personal favourite item in the whole collection here at Attitude. A ripstop canvas exterior, made clear by the tonal grid pattern that runs all over it, provides exceptional resistance against the elements whilst retaining great flexibility, making this the perfect jacket for skating in. The elasticated wrist cuffs enhance the fit of the jacket significantly, and the front pockets provide useful and secure storage for your possessions. Branding, whilst hidden, is quite maximal, with the whole lining of the jacket coming in white and featuring a black-outlined Fucking Awesome logo repeated all across it. Toning things down nicely is the tonal embroidered Fucking Awesome text on the chest and the corduroy collar, perfectly completing a very stylish and very functional jacket.

FA THRONE HOOD w FA MOTHER NAK

FA has taken a much more graphic-heavy approach to hoodies this season, with the standard Fucking Awesome logo not used significantly on any of them. the Throne hoodie on the left (which also comes in black) is certainly a standout, featuring an unbelievably detailed back print. It depicts some sort of biblical scene, with a deity-like figure sitting on a throne surrounded by statues and a woman, and features a very washed-out appearance to make it look like it’s been ripped straight off the wall of a church. Contrasting heavily against the white backdrop, the graphic is easily one of the best we’ve seen this season from any brand, let alone just FA! On the front a small angel is featured with Fucking Awesome text running underneath them, capping off an incredible hoodie perfectly. On the right above we have the Nak Mother Africa Hoodie, coming in Military Green just like the Field Jacket before it. A 100% cotton construction makes the hoodie incredibly soft and comfortable, and heavyweight enough to keep you warm throughout the colder months. The drawstring-adjustable hood and ribbed wrist and waist cuffs enhance fit significantly, and the kangaroo pocket on the front provides very useful storage. NAK text is repeated in bold yellow down the sleeves, with the Mother Africa graphic screen printed onto the chest, the light green of which complements the military green colour of the hoodie to perfection. It’s going to be a hard task picking your favourite hoodie in the collection no doubt!

FA BROS CREW FA BROS T YEL

The Brothers graphic is central to the latest collection, appearing on the Black Crewneck Sweatshirt on the left above, and on the Banana Yellow SS Tee on the right above (as well as on a host of other t-shirt colours!). The former features a cotton and polyester blend construction, which makes it incredibly soft and comfortable as well as relatively thick, essentially perfect for the winter months. The ribbed wrist and waist cuffs enhance fit significantly by bringing the sweatshirt closer to the body and streamlining it nicely, amd the large Brothers graphic has been screen printed onto the chest, providing that old-school FA style we’ve all come to love. The latter features a 100% cotton construction, guaranteeing a soft and comfortable tee and maximising the pale yellow colour perfectly. The short sleeves provide excellent freedom of movement, and the t-shirt being mid-weight means it won’t slow you down when skating. The Brothers graphic has again been screen printed onto the chest, looking great on every t-shirt colourway.

FA FUCKED FA EAT YOU W

The Brothers graphic is by no means the only logo gracing t-shirts this season, in fact FA have produced more than they ever have! On the left above we have the Fucked Forever T-Shirt in Powder Blue, and on the right above we have the Eat You T-Shirt in White. The former features original artwork designed by Dill himself, an incredibly detailed graphic featuring a variety of colours that contrast nicely against the pale blue of the t-shirt. A pocket is featured on the front which is both useful and very stylish, with black Fucking Awesome text screen printed onto it. The very gory Eat You t-shirt features a zombie graphic on the chest that has been ripped from the aptly titled film series Zombi, consisting of a variety of cult classic European horrors. It has been screen printed on, with thick Fucking Awesome text underneath it to make the t-shirt instantly recognisable. We’ve also got Nak Mother Africa and Throne t-shirts too, just in case you didn’t think there’s enough to choose from!

FA PRAYER FA BURG HAT

Rounding off the newest FA collection is a variety of hats and decks, with one from each category pictured above. The Prayer Team Deck on the left is one of the standouts, featuring a crazy detailed graphic of numerous symbols and icons embossed into a weird scene of some entity sprawled out on the floor. The quality of the deck itself is impeccable, thanks to a seven ply wood construction, and it is made by PS Stix, one of the most renowned skateboard makers in the world who provide a “Made in America” stamp of approval with each deck they produce. The rest of the decks all feature a similar stylistic approach, and can be found here. The Classic Logo Cap on the right comes in a variety of colourways, but this Burgundy iteration has to be our favourite. With a thick cotton construction, the cap is vivid in colour and very sturdy. The five-panel construction means it will fit just about any head shape nicely, and its fit can be adjusted via a snap closure system at the back. The logo on the front panel has been fully embroidered, very high in quality and contrasting nicely against the burgundy backdrop. The Classic FA Cap is the other hat style that comes in a variety of colourways.

This stellar drop has been very well received so far and isn’t going to hang about for much longer, so you’d wanna get moving if there’s something you want to cop!
