Tilak SS21 Collection

Tilak editorial wallace mercantile shop

Thanks to blue skies, cool breezes, and damn near eighteen hours of sunlight, summer is peak season for exploring the great outdoors. Of course, that means a whole different set of technical gear—a great thing for clothing nerds like us! To exchange our Michelin Man-esque kits for breezy weatherproofing, we turned to Czech label Tilak and their exemplary Spring/Summer ‘21 collection. Our first piece is the Euphoria Jacket, a ridiculously lightweight GORE-TEX ACTIVE shell that delivers performance, breathability, and futuristic good looks. That iridescent fabric and reflective details fill us with a sort of child-like wonderment. This is what trail running dreams are made of!

Our second piece of Tilak summer outerwear is the Odin Jacket. While a touch less technical than the Euphoria, this military-inspired anorak is the perfect layer for outdoor excursions where durability is paramount. The Odin Jacket is made from Ventile, a water-resistant cotton fabric that’s been in use since World War Two. While Ventile is tough as heck, it’s also more breathable and quiet than synthetic fabrics like GORE-TEX, making it a popular choice amongst bird-watchers and hunters. To accompany the Odin Jacket, we went with the Poutnik Monk Pants. Poutnik is a collaboration between Tilak and ACRONYM founder Errolson Hugh, and they continuously impress us with their sleek designs and unparalleled functionality.
