Spring Anoraks

In the last couple seasons, the anorak has become a popular spring piece. Easy to pack, easy to wear and ideal for the warmer weather of the spring and summer. Woolrich Woolen Mills have been consistently making nice versions, both from Daiki and Mark. Batten Sportswear have also put out a good packable version in some nice bright colors this spring.

—03. EOG Credenza.

Words

Building, a small studio based in Tokyo, Japan offers a nice selection of vintage items alongside their own brand of furniture. This past week the shop put together a nice selection of George Nelson's mid-century designs, including benches, desks and lighting. Sought after gems from Herman Miller and Howard Miller fetch reasonably high prices, but come in mint condition: ideal for window shopping from across the Pacific.

Look: Klassik Springston

01

Words

One of my favorite times of the year is when you can mix garments from different seasons. A nice bit of blue, tan and olive always works well together. Cross over pieces from Post Overalls and Inverallan are still perfect in early spring, while denim and chambray from orSlow work seamlessly together. Sturdy footwear is a necessity all year around, so anytime is good for a pair of C-shade Tricker's.

Words

Making a reversible garment that is actually good on both sides is no easy task. Engineered Garments have answered the call however with the Brookline. This spring is the second season for the new style, featuring a navy poly cotton on one side, and a camouflage rip stop on the other. The jacket is also available in a tan and blue version.

Shoes Like Pottery

01

Info

—01. Natural japanese canvas, produced in a kiln.

Words

While you may not always be able to improve upon a classic, you can adapt, develop, and refine it. Thanks to a post on the frequently informative Ready For The House this week, Shoes Like Pottery are now very much on my radar. The company make impeccable canvas and rubber footwear in Japan not too dissimilar from the classic styles produced by BF Goodrich and Converse in years passed. However where these shoes differ is in the manufacturing: each pair is made at the MoonStar factory in Kurume, Japan, where the rubber is attached to the canvas shoe by baking it in a kiln.

Doug Johnston Rope Works at Partners & Spade

01

Info

—01. Cotton or poly sash cord.
—02. Hand coiled and sewn.

Words

Having admired his sash cord studies for a little while now, I was pleased to see that Partners & Spade recently added Doug Johnston's rope works to their store inventory. Already selling out fast these sculptural works include vessels, bowls, and baskets, and are well worth both admiring and picking up should you need something for your coffee table, or somewhere to throw your dirty socks. Highbrow/Lowbrow.

Words

When I saw these socks in the Nepenthes showroom last fall, I knew I wanted them. There are tons of great options on the market these days, but the mix of blue, white and purple seems particularly nice.
