The Engineer's Jacket

01

Info

—01. Available in cotton canvas & herringbone wool.

Words

Since receiving the last shipment from Post Overalls just before Christmas, there has been one standout item in the shop for me. The Engineer's jacket is becoming one of the brand's most iconic, due to its frequent appearances season after season and Takeshi's obsession with the work wear style. For me, the raglan sleeves, weight of the fabrics and great color options make it one of the most wearable coats I have right now. I brought it with me to Europe on this two and a half week trip and I've worn it every single day now, with no complaints.

Chairs by ROLU

01

Info

—01. + Chair OSB.

Words

Having admired the work of the art and furniture design studio ROLU for a little while now, I was happy to discover an interview with one of the studios founders Matt Olsen in the latest issue of Bad Day magazine. The interview was conducted by Patrick Parrish, of MONDOBLOGO fame, and offers a great insight into the concepts, inspirations and processes the company uses. ROLU's architectural chair designs are a particular favourite of mine, and use plywood and OSB to create an interesting alternative to some of the more pedestrian seating options available elsewhere.

High! Standard Shop Looks

01

Images

—01. Fall Blues.
—02. Spring Greens.

Words

These outfit selections are from one of our collective favourite shops in Tokyo: High! Standard. The store itself will be featured in the forthcoming issue of the magazine, and while their Spring shipments may well be arriving already, there's still plenty of winter stock available for most people to pick up the last of their seasonal buys. I'd personally be more than happy to stock up on either the last of what's left, or the first of what's coming in, at one of the very best retailers around.

Gary Warnett's first post on Nike's ACG and Hiking divisions came last November, and he's just added a follow-up. Written in typically insightful fashion, both instalments are supported by some great imagery and well worth reading whether you consider yourself a fan of these cult sub-brands or not.

Woolrich Woolen Mills Fall-Winter '12

01

Info

—01. FW12 Look book.

Words

This week Mark McNairy launched his Fall-Winter 2012 collection at Pitti Uomo and at the WP Lavori showroom in Milan. The feedback has been deservedly positive so far. The mix of wool, corduroy and synthetic materials are well balanced, along with a nice color palette. Not short on Mark's playful aesthetic, it also features nice use of technical fabrics and very wearable basics.

Since arriving in Florence, the team has stayed in Italy for the last week, moving through Milan and onto Bologna to work on an upcoming project for WP Lavori. The trip already feels much longer than its been, but as usual, its been exciting to spend more time with wonderful people. We still a few more days to go in Italy before the flight home this weekend.
