With the launch of INVENTORY we aimed to go a step further than h(y)r collective. It wasn't really supposed to be a re-brand, rather it's a new brand built around our biggest venture yet, a printed magazine. Volume 01 Number 01 is due to arrive in our hands for release at the end of next week. The magazine has taken a lot of hard work and effort from a (very) small group of passionate individuals and it has turned into something special right before us. I don't want to get too far into how important the project is to me personally right now, instead I just want to let you know a little about it to begin with. The magazine will be retailed in the Inventory Stockroom, for $20 USD – as well as at select retailers around the world. The bi-annual magazine has been produced not just as a catalogue of what's happening right now, but as a way of telling stories and curating a certain aesthetic, product and feeling. It carries a higher price tag not only because we feel the magazine's content holds value, but also because the tangible product itself comes at a cost as we chose to print here at home in Canada. With little advertising, buying it is the absolute best way you can support our work and efforts to create something good. The focus has always been to produce something we would love to find and see ourselves, and it's been wonderful to see the reaction over the last couple of years. We are very proud to present the first offering from Inventory Magazine this fall.
Number 01 features; Yuketen, Willo Perron, Nigel Cabourn, Mister Freedom and Engineered Garments. There are focus articles on Duluth Pack and Chris Gibbs, and we've featured Collection No. 9 from Nom de Guerre in an editorial spread, among others. There are 140 pages of 100% original photography, words and thoughts – and we hope you enjoy it. Thank you to everyone involved and who has supported the making of this magazine.
