The Sector 7 is a new model that comes under the umbrella of the DC Life Collection, which whether you know it or not, has been around for seven seasons now. Like its hightop brother the Admiral, this is a nice take on the ‘classic’ aesthetic – streamlined and simple – but possessing an undeniable charm that is hard to define unless you have it in your hand. We don’t really go for the ‘slimfast’ type of thing at all, so believe me, we are as surprised as anyone by the warm glow emitted by the Sector 7. Perhaps the tailored look that so many brands tried to wrangle (Callous anyone?) has finally come of age?
This particular model is made from what appears to be those bizarre ‘batwing’ wrinkly grey leather jackets that were all the rage for old dudes twenty years ago. DC is not primping it as such, but that’s what it looks like to us… If we are right, it’s a nice touch, which although retro, is not immediately evident. Perhaps we are wrong?
The Life Collection at DC is on offer to a small group of retailers globally… check your local store.
