Life Saver: Clarks Weaver Shoe

01

Info

—01. Special thanks to Mr. Watts.

Words

Our trip to New York last week went well, except I was dissapointed to find all Lunarglide 3's sold out in my size when I arrived. I had only brought one pair of shoes on the trip and it turned out they were slightly too small. My feet were killing mid-trip until our gracious host offered me a pair of Clarks to wear. I had always kind of liked the Weaver shoe, but I'd never even tried them on before. From now on, they will have a special place in my heart and my feet were thankful to spend a few days on the crepe soles.

South 2 West 8 Rugby Shirt

01

Images

—01. Green with dark red stripe.
—02. Collar detail.
—03. Underarm detail.

Words

South 2 West 8 offers a great rendition of the traditional rugby shirt in two colourways. The attention to detail and durability of this piece really give it an authentic feel. The classic rugby collar tends to be white but the natural cotton blends in nicely with stripes in both colours. I really don't have anything like this but I think it would blend well with a pair of chinos or fatigues.

NY Snaps: Day 3 & 4

01

Info

—01. Mid-town New York, July 2011.

Words

The last couple of days have been spent all over New York, mid-town, uptown and even down below Canal. More meetings, more spaces and more clothing - its been a good trip overall, except for the insanely brutal heat in the city. I don't think I've ever been as uncomfortable wearing a t-shirt and shorts as yesterday. Fortunately Owen and I escape back to Vancouver tonight to some moderately nice spring weather.

Want: Tiger Camo Boonie Hat

01

Info

—01. Classic military camo.

Words

The McCoy's summer hats are some of the best out there at the moment. This classic American military tiger camo is perfect for this style of cap, and one I wouldn't mind having for sure. Unfortunately it only comes in larger sizes, which means I'll have to pick up a surplus/vintage option. Either way, the accent of this pattern with whites and navy blue looks great.

Another couple of hot days in New York, another roud of meetings, spaces, people, showrooms and clothing. We've been keeping busy so far, but fortunately we have a bit of time tomorrow to hit up a couple of shops, go uptown and hopefully try not to sweat too much.

—01. The Plant Journal.
—02. Take 8 Ivy.

Words

We've been receiving some great publications lately and a couple that we've been highly anticipating have just landed in Vancouver. The Plant Journal features some nice design, great photography and some interesting stories. Take 8 Ivy takes off where the original book by Teruyoshi Hayashide left off. With more schools, more photos and more pages, the book is a must have.

Rugged Museum Chambray Work Shirt

01

Images

—01. Worn in details.
—02. Collar.
—03. Back yoke.

Words

I like chambray. Classic, casual and wearable with any sort of pants or shorts, I don't even mind the Canadian tuxedo look. The fabric is easily complemented and this style in particular has some nice patchwork separating it from the dozens of great options available out there. RM used a washing process that balances the indigo colour well with the rest of the garment. Definitely a piece that would fit comfortably into anyones wardobe.
