A Closer Look at the KITH x Diamond Supply Co. Collection
The KITH x Diamond Supply Co. Collection fuses sport and skate, East Coast and West Coast, to create one cohesive selection of product. The primary apparel pieces are the Raleigh Jersey and the Fairfax Shorts, as well as six tee shirts and two hats.
The Raleigh Jersey is built from custom-milled mesh and is lined with "Diamond Blue" 160gsm cotton jersey. The chest features a co-branded appliqué, as well as a traditional button-down placket. The hem is straightened, and the left side is finished with dual-branded patches. The Raleigh Jersey is available in both Black and White, and is priced at $90 USD.
The Fairfax Short utilizes the exact same material composition as the Raleigh Jersey, with a few additions. The elasticated waistband is equipped with adjustable drawstrings and is trimmed with "Diamond Blue" nylon, as are the zipper pockets. The left leg includes two 3M patches, each representing its respective brand. The Fairfax Short is available in Black and White, and is priced at $70 USD.
The six tee shirts include the Classic Tee, the Brilliant Tee, and the Us Tee. Each tee is available in Black and White, and is priced at $40 USD. The Classic Tee features Diamond-text scripted atop the KITH Classic Logo. The Brilliant Tee reverses this formula, as KITH is scripted atop the Diamond Logo. The Us Tee features a dual-sided print, as the left chest is stamped with both brands' logos, and the back is formatted with reflective Us Logo.
The two hats consist of the Classic Hat and the Brilliant Hat, both of which are available in Black and are priced at $45 USD. The Classic Hat uses the same co-branded graphic as the Classic Tee, while the underbrim is green, and the rear uses a snapback closure. The Brilliant Hat has a rubberized patch on the front of the crown, and also features a green underbrim and snapback closure.
The keystone of this collection is the pair of Ronnie Fieg x Diamond Supply Co. x Asics. The Gel Saga has a black microperforated leather upper with "Diamond Blue" pigskin suede toes, formstripes, and face panels. The liner is premium leather, and the heels are adorned with rubber patches. The Gel Lyte V upper is predominantly "Diamond Blue" microperforated pigskin suede, while the heel wrap is a metallic silver "fiberglass" material with co-branded rubber patches. The inner-sock is composed of open mesh and lined with neoprene for a breathable snug fit. In-store pairs purchased at KITH Manhattan or Diamond Supply Co.'s San Francisco or Los Angeles locations will come in custom "Diamond Blue" packaging with custom lace jewelry-bags. The Gel Saga is accompanied by three additional lace options, and the Gel Lyte V comes with two additional lace options. The Gel Saga is priced at $165 USD, and the Gel Lyte V is priced at $175 USD.
The Gel Saga has a size run of US 4 - 13 (incl. half sizes). The Gel Lyte V has a size run of US 5 - 13 (incl. half sizes).
