Words

Following on from the editorial they produced for our fourth issue, Neil Bedford and Craig Ford have just released this set of portraits promoting the Fall-Winter '11 Mr. Bathing Ape collection. The pair continue to take an interesting approach towards the brand's image and I'm always impressed with the results.

Mark McNairy Ridgeway Long Wing

01

Info

—01. Ridgeway sole.

Words

Mark's footwear collection is known and loved by all, pretty much, and still hasn't managed to get boring. With a nice balance of classic, playful and tasteful, his collection offers buyers a great variety, as well as the opportunity to create custom make ups. I am eagerly awaiting a personal order that uses this upper and sole, but in the meantime I am happy to admire the version made for Fennica in Japan.

Fall Layers

Images

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

Words

There are a few Japanese webshops out there that really do a great job presenting new product - Second Stage is one of them. This fall they were able to inject a fair bit of color into the fall season, with some nice styling, comfy layering and good use of the Engineered Garments fatigue pants. Although the cords might be tough to pull off in real life, these images definitely make them a little bit appealing.

—01. Carved whale tooth Billiken.
—02. 1930s silver Navajo thunderbird pin.
—03. 1930s Chimayo purse.
—04. Bottle cap folk art.

Words

Although Koji always has a great selection of Post Overalls and EG pieces, one of the best parts about visiting Extra is discovering what new things he has dug out from the depths of his enormous vintage collection, and then hearing him tell you all the stories that surround the discovery of each item. These are a selection of things that may or may not still be around, but rest assured, if they're not, there's bound to be something else that will catch your eye.

Restock: Engineered Garments Workaday BD Shirts

01

Info

—01. White, Blue, Red Stripe and Blue Stripe.

Words

Worn daily by half the Inventory team, these shirts are back in stock, and now available in four colours. I know some people are put off by the height of the gusset and the lack of buttons towards the bottom of the placket, but wear a white T underneath and before long it's other shirt styles that won't feel quite right.

Umbro Archive Research Project

—01. Ramsey Jacket.
—02. Drill Pant interior.

Words

The A.R.P project from Umbro is the latest development in their now long-standing relationship with the designer Aitor Throup. Having worked with the brand on previous incarnations of the England national kit, the former Stone Island and CP Company designer has delved into the deep archive Umbro possess to rework and re-imagine classic pieces from the brands past. Taking famous and notable styles from previous decades - the 1966 Jacket as worn by Alf Ramsey, the classic Drill Top and pant, the Barcelona Short, and the 1960's Aztec Jersey to name a few - Throup has re-worked these heritage designs into modern, highly technical pieces. The colour palette on all the designs offers a nice muted take on the typical bright colours of classic Sportswear; helping to make these modified classics that much easier to fit into both an active and casual ensemble.
