Levi's Philippines, in step with Levi's in most other parts of the world, has just released a new collaboration collection with popstar and '90s heartthrob emeritus Justin Timberlake. Entitled "Fresh Leaves", the collection consists mainly of slim 501s, fleece-lined trucker jackets, and flannels shirts. Here are a few pieces from the collection:

In its entirety, "Fresh Leaves" feels like the sartorial equivalent of Timberlake's latest album, Man in the Woods, which makes sense because Timberlake himself worked with Levi's to rework the brand's iconic designs. And while Man in the Woords saw some pretty harsh reviews when it dropped earlier this year, Levi's' translation of it is pitch perfect: a blend of outdoorsy and urban, with the feel of a funky lumberjack; a little bit country, but also sort of street in a weird-but-good way.

Of course, that means that most of the collection's outerwear pieces are really heavy—some so thick and warm that only the coldest mall or office air conditioning can justify them for Metro Manila wear. Some jackets are lined with fleece and some shirts with reversible down. Think of these as the sort of pieces you'd reserve for trips abroad.

That said, the denim shirts are just heavy enough to feel substantial, like they'd last. And the jeans—slim tapered 501s in three different colorways—have excellent washes. These are easily the most wearable pieces in the collection, and also its highlights.

The Levi's "Fresh Leaves" collection is now available in the following Levi's branches: Greenbelt 5, Trinoma, Robinsons Ermita, SM Mall of Asia, SM North EDSA, SM Megamall, Uptown BGC, SM Aura, and Ayala Cebu.
