1970年代後半～80年代に数年間だけ稼働していたニューバランスのアイルランド工場で生産された ”MADE IN IRELAND” の幻のサンプルが近年発見され、これを当時のランニングシューズの品番の流れに沿って「520」と命名し、この秋に復刻しました。そのシンプルなデザインの「520」にエンボスレザーやスエードなどの様々な素材を使用し、クレイジーパターンで配しています。
These "MADE IN IRELAND" products were made at the New Balance factory in Ireland, which was in operation for just a few years from the mid 1970s to the 1980s, and a sample of these rare items was uncovered recently. Following on the product numbering conventions of the company's running shoes at that time, these have been named "520" and are being revived this fall. The "520" features a simple design and is made from a variety of materials such as embossed leather and suede arranged in crazy patterns.

This long-sleeved t-shirt is made from 100% heavy cotton fibers. The loose fit provides a relaxed silhouette. New Balance and CHARI&CO logos are printed, one on each arm, position to improve your visibility while riding a bike. The bottom edge of the back is fitted with reflective tape.
Inspired by the popular "NB Athletics 78 Jacket," a new product in the 2017 Fall and Winter apparel line, this jacket features a revised design ideal for use when riding a bike. The two-way stretch fabric is flexible and easy to move around in, and the raised lining is a unique feature that provides warmth. In addition, this product includes a face mask made from the same fleece material as an additional protection against the cold when riding a bike. The hood is designed to fit over your face and head without restricting visibility for your peace of mind. Also, the side panels are fitted with slits for easy access to your pants pockets.
These pants are made from the same material as the jacket and are cut with a deep waist, loose fit to the knees, and a tapered silhouette in the lower leg. The cuff tape provides improved safety while riding a bike and can also be used to adjust the cuff fit, providing a fun way to modify the silhouette. The pattern chosen provides a spacious fit in the crotch and knees for ease of movement. Pockets are lined with mesh for comfort and breathability. The sides are fitted with CHARI&CO logo tape to ensure you can be seen from both the left and the right side when riding a bike.
This soft fleece jacket is fully-lined and painstakingly crafted. The design features piping on the cuffs, and the fit is loose without any constriction around the waist. The sleeve opening is stitched with a subtle New Balance logo in the same color as the piping, and the bottom edge of the back is decorated with black reflective tape representing the CHARI&CO brand.
The fleece pants are made from the same material as the cardigan, with a raised lining for incredible comfort. The waistband includes the same shoe laces used on the U520 shoes as ties. The lower leg is tighter around the ankles, providing the tapered silhouette that's currently trending. Cuffs are decorated with black reflective tape.
