W'Menswear was founded by Lauren Yates in 2015, born out of a desire to produce high quality, heritage-inspired garments for women - with a nuanced and ever-evolving perspective on femininity at the intersections of fashion, workwear, military garments, and history. Originally operating out of a converting shipping container in Bangkok, the brand has grown substantially with each new collection, employing specialty and custom fabrics as well as partnering with local workshops & artisans.
The F/W '23 collection, titled "Flying in Crosswinds", pays homage in part to Margaret "Maggie" Gee, a physicist and pilot, and one of the only two Chinese-American women to fly as a Women's Airforce Service Pilot (WASP) in WWII. These styles explore the way clothes have been used to reinforce and resist different political ideologies - repurposing and reimagining military styles into functional and flattering workwear.
The Crew Shirt is an oversized A-line work shirt with two chest pockets, snap closures, and an easy fit. Cut with roomy armholes and a relaxed waist, it's comfortable and unrestrictive, with a very natural drape. The check edition is made from a Japanese cotton/linen/rayon blend fabric that's lightweight, soft, and immediately comfortable.
