Junya Watanabe Clip Jacket

—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. 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. 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.

Champion at Nanamica

—01. The classic 'C'.
—02. School cardigan.

Words

There's something about that little red, white and blue 'C' that I love. As soon as I see it, especially above a cuff or on a sleeve, it somehow makes the garment that bit more special. I'm not sure why, but like any form of good branding it works and personal sentiment always overrides explanation; for me at least.

—01. Stretch.
—02. Lace.

Words

The latest Great British Hope, Andy Baddeley, recently answered a few questions for i-D Magazine about his daily preparations and training rituals. Baddeley backs both New Balance, and porridge, making him a pretty stand-up guy in my book. 100 Miles a week? Sure thing.
