We've gone back and forth on Americana since it became more of a hypebeast obsession for chambray-clad stans in 2012. While the demand for Red Wing boots and artisanal selvedge denim will always be there, it's been quite a while since fashion houses have released a collection that embraces an all-Americana image and aesthetic. But now, Kith is launching a full-fledged revival of the Americana aesthetic for their Winter 2017 collection, updated with luxury materials, premium construction, and modern slim-yet-slouchy fits.

The expansive collection includes 83 new pieces, featuring an all-new iteration of Kith's very first offering, the Mercer Pant IV. The whole line feels fresh and inventive, drawing only on Americana for inspiration and reinterpreting it through Ronnie Fieg's keen eye. For this cold weather collection, genuine Italian shearling and heavyweight flannel are sewn sturdily to ensure each piece is ready to brave the frigid winter gales. Among the lively plaids and muted earth tones, faded camouflage terry is featured liberally throughout the line.

In support of the completely Kith-ified Americana getup, the NYC-bred retailer has also included a curated selection of accessories in the collection, including nylon carry-all waistbags and duffels, Kith's very first belt, and sleek shearling-lined hiking boots courtesy of Kith frontman Ronnie Fieg and Italian bootmaker Fracas. Check out the full Kith Winter '17 lookbook below, and shop the collection when it drops this Saturday at 11AM in Kith stores and on kith.com.
