Restock: Engineered Garments Workaday Cords

01

Images

—01. Tan.
—02. Olive.

Words

These are some of my favorites pants. Since the day I got my first pair, they have got regular wear and also quickly became an Inventory favorite across the board. There are no bad color options, but the tan and olive seem to be especially good, while the burgundy and brown are perfect for the fall.

Needles Roped Crusher Hats

01

Info

—01. Three colors.

Words

These hats look a bit crazy at first, but in some of the well styled looks over at Second Stage, they don't look too outlandish. I also feel if you took the rope off, they would be much more mellow without the contrast of color and fabric. The tones themselves offer something unique, yet not to over the top.

Woolrich Woolen Mills Watch Cap

—01. Navy.
—02. Olive.

Words

Most seasons I tend to pick up something small from a collection that perhaps appeals, but maybe doesn't bowl me over directly enough to make a substantial purchase. I have a few things here and there that fall into this category, and this Watch Cap from Mark McNairy's Fall '11 Woolrich Woolen Mills collection would seem an ideal candidate for this season's contender. The large text placement won't be for everyone, but the hat is relatively affordable, easily wearable, and available in two classic colours.

Engineered Garments Intermediates

01

Images

—01. Bush Jean.
—02. Flat Front Pant.

Words

Always a little harder to track down than either the mainline, or the Workaday pieces, Engineered Garments Intermediates offer a few really great basics worth picking up each season. Two of my favourites from the current crop are the Bush Jean and Flat Front Pant, which are both available in a great shade of khaki cotton. One's simple, straightforward, and as classic as it comes; the other, meanwhile, offers a little more in the way of originality and places to put your keys. Both are new in stock, and are currently available from Eggplant.

Issue 05 Release

01

Info

—01. Nelson the Seagull, Vancouver.

Words

Another issue has come and gone, perhaps its still coming for some of you, but it should arrive soon. We're proud about the pages we've put together again and we couldn't do it without our team, our contributors and our friends. The process is just as strenuous as ever, but it was nice to finally put our latest issue on the shelf last month, so to celebrate we had a nice dinner party at Nelson the Seagull, who put together a wonderful three course meal for us. Thanks again to everybody involved in making the issue, and of course to everyone who takes the time to pick themselves up a copy.

Waste(twice) Submarina Jacket

01

Images

—01. Black British Millerain
—02. Ample Pockets.
—03. Navy Check Lining

Words

While the more typical mountain or trail parka seems to be dominating the outerwear scene a bit these days, Japanese brand Waste(twice) have done an interesting variation of a similar jacket. Referencing a vintage fishing jacket, the cut of the Submarina is unique in that the shoulders are seamless. This makes movement in the area stress free and less restricted as well as more weather-proof. The finely woven oil cloth cotton Millerain fabric give it a nice texture and natural drape despite the many pockets. A corduroy lined hood and check flannel lining provide the cherry on top of a much less ubiquitous looking piece of outerwear.
