Roots and Smythe Colloborate on a Milestone Jacket



One of the country’s quintessential brands, Roots, is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year. Founded in 1973 by friends Michael Budman and Don Green, the iconic company has collaborated with Canadian designers Andrea Lenczner and Christie Smythe of Smythe les Vestes to create a unique piece to commemorate the milestone. The designing duo, best known for their fashionable blazers, have created a bomber jacket ($988) for Roots’s special occasion.  —Linda Luong
