Mikol and the AF Family!!!
This week on Karmaloop’s Men’s Buyer Wire, they showcase a few of our favorite pieces from the Winter 2011 line.
First, the Lounge Sweatpants in Hunter Green (also available in Black). These feature a fully functional elastic waistband with white pocket stitching, and an Amongst Friends logo on the back pocket. As said in the video, these are a slim cut so try hiking them up at the bottom or tucking them into a pair of AF Field Boots.
The next featured item is our Chino Duck Pants in Army Green (also available in Slate Gray). These feature cargo style flap pockets and an Amongst Friends embroidered logo beneath the left front pocket. With a slim straight leg, you get about a 15-15 1/2″ leg opening at the bottom. Pair these with a heather gray Amongst Friends Sports tee and a beanie, and you’re good to go.
Our best selling piece is showcased next -The classic Varsity Jacket. It comes in 2 colors: Blue Plaid and Gray Tweed. The Gray Tweed features a tweed body and comfortable leather sleeves, with a small welt pocket on the left sleeve. Not only do they look fly, they’re heavy duty for the winter so you can wear it as the finishing layer.
One of our favorites from our Footwear line is the Amongst Friends interpretation of the trending Desert Boot, the Trail Boot. Featured in this video is the Navy suede with red brick soles, but it also comes in Brown leather with a white sole. You can’t go wrong pairing these with the Chino Duck Pants.
The Amongst Friends Fall Collection is flying off the shelves in shops worldwide. One of our amazing interns was nice enough to pick some of her favorite pieces and virtually walk you though the rest of our Autumn Delivery. She’s so nice, you’d be a sucker if you didn’t check it out….
The Logo New Era 59/50 is a fun way to spruce up your new era 59/50; with the AF logo; Represent!

I want to introduce you to the newest member of the Amongst Friends extended family – Dan Zvereff. If you’ve been checking out our Summer Collection on the blog, you may recognize him rocking the Blue Steel look on the fire escape.
Dan is definitely a talented designer and illustrator. He can “push” with the best of them, if you couldn’t tell by this Fakie Flip captured in Red Hook, Brooklyn. Plus he has a pretty sick tumblr too – check it out. All in all, a solid addition to the Amongst Friends Family.
Among the offerings we haven’t been able to keep in stock for Summer 11 is The AF Piqué Polo. Our good friend Bon Duke is seen above in the grey version of this popular polo.
The custom Amongst Friends paisley accents the neck of each garment. The Piqué cotton weave gives the polo a raised feel. Perfect for starching and staying very very crispy this summer. I mean the piqué weave has been around since the late 18th century. We only bring you classics.
These are shipping to accounts as you read this and should be available in limited size runs on our site middle of next week. Save your money this weekend, you don’t need that extra round of tequila shots, you need The AF Piqué Polo in your life.
