A Vontade Classic Mountain Parka

01

Images

—01. Blue.
—02. Tan.

Words

Simple lines, classic colours, all the right details. There are quite a few impressive jackets out there right now, as you can probably tell from all the posts I've done highlighting some of them, but this Mountain Parka from A Vontade might just be my pick of the bunch. Perhaps it's for the reasons I listed above, or perhaps it's because I know I probably won't ever get to see one in the flesh, after all: the hardest to find gems always seem to shine the brightest. Red, Green, Tan, or Blue.

The Superior Labor Leather Pouch

01

Info

—01. Soft camel leather and stamp detail.

Words

I'm a sucker for a handy little zip pouch, something for pens, or film, or just to minimize the clutter around my desk, or bag. While I wouldn't say I'm exactly "big on leather" a nicely crafted piece goes a long way in my book, especially if it's something I can see myself using on a regular basis. The Superior Labor make some of the finest small goods around, and the leather pouch above is just one fine example to be taken from their wider, consistently impressive, collection.

Junya Watanabe Clip Jacket

01

Images

—01. Corduroy and leather accents.
—02. Button and clip fasteners.

Words

So let's get this out of the way: this jacket is expensive, relatively elaborate in both design and detail, and certainly not for everyone. However this particular Junya Watanabe collection was well received by many following its original showing back in January, and it's been interesting to see which pieces stores that carry the brand have chosen to bring in this season. The Army Green Clip Jacket is perhaps one of the most wearable pieces from the current Fall line, offering an easy-on-the-eyes colour combination, combined with some appealing details in the fastenings and closures. Yes it costs a pretty-penny, and no I probably won't ever purchase an item of clothing in this price range, but it's still fun to imagine a bottomless pit of a wallet now and again, and what you might do with it given half the chance.

Engineered Garments Logger Vest

01

Images

—01. Railroad stripe.
—02. Reversible.

Words

We have received our second shipment of Engineered Garments and one of the standouts for me was the charcoal railroad stripe brookline jacket. This vest, made from the the same material, offers itself as a great layering piece. With a quilted black nylon lining it's a comfortable selection when the temperature drops and just as wearable in a casual setting. Keep the core warm and you won't have to bulk up too much this fall.

Available through South 2 West 8

Sunset Cabin - Taylor Smyth Architects

01

Images

—01. Fully insulated glass.
—02. Birch veener plywood.

Words

Located on Lake Simcoe, just outside Toronto, Canada, this one bedroom sleeping cabin juxtaposes itself among the vertical silhouette of the surrounding wilderness with three sides of horizontal cedar slats. With a sustainable planted green roof, its existence is as dynamic as its environment, visually blended into the landscape during the spring and summer months. While during the winter, covered in dense white snow, its design provides a complex integration between architecture and nature, constantly balancing shadows and sunlight. A private, calm retreat for those looking to escape the confines of the city.

Engineered Garments Workaday Pocket Tees

01

Info

—01. Available in white, grey & navy.

Words

The EG Workaday selection continues to be something of a rarity outside of Japan. The tightly knit offering includes a great set of staples that I wear quite regularly. The only new item this year is the pocket t-shirt with the overlap 'crossing' collar. Available in three colors, these t-shirts are made in Canada, fit small and are a nice addition to the Workaday line.
