—01. Located at the Brentwood Country Mart, Santa Monica.

Words

Unionmade Goods have quickly made a nice name for themselves in the menswear retail market. Carrying a nice variety of goods from Alden, Orslow, Woolrich Woolen Mills, Mark McNairy and Saint James to name a few, the shop offers a good selection of new collections along with classic staples. The San Francisco shop must be doing alright, as Unionmade have recently opened their second store in Santa Monica, Los Angeles. The store is located in the Brentwood Country Mart which has a nice little feel, and is also where the Monocle LA store is located.

Head Porter LX Rucksack

—01. Hi-Density Nylon Taffeta PVC construction.
—02. Leather straps and trim details.

Words

Another great looking product from Head Porter's range. Many of their products are often too bright, or have crazy patterns that don't really work for me, but this olive drab rucksack looks amazing, and features some high quality fabrics. While the price might be a little higher than I would like, it's worth looking at in regards to its design, use of material and small details.

Beams Plus Summer Hat

—01. Available in three colors.

Words

I think we might have posted about this Beams hat last summer, but its back again. While I wish I could find a good summer hat for myself, I know this wouldn't work for me. It does look great however and for the right person, it could be perfect for the warm months ahead. Unfortunately if that's you, you'll have to track it down in Japan.

Comme des Garçons SHIRT Contrast Sleeve

01

—01. Available in white & navy.

Words

I normally don't really like long sleeve t-shirts at all, but for some reason the contrast sleeves on this CDG SHIRT piece are working for me. Simple colors, easy to wear in the summer, nothing too exciting, but not too boring either. You can be sure the fit will be nice, the cotton will be soft, and its all about comfort in the summer anyways.

Weekend Listening: Beat Konducta, Vol. 6

—01. Madlib, the Beat Konducta.

Words

Lately I've been listening to Madlib pretty much non-stop. For some reason when I get hooked on an artist, it usually lasts a few weeks at a time, but certain things just stick even longer. Anyways, his Beat Konducta series are classic, and if you're not familiar with the tracks, you'd probably recognize a few sounds along the way.

Freeman's Sporting Club Spring Items

Spring pieces from FSC, made in New York.

Words

—01. Inspired by classic machinist shirts with buttons on elbow and sleeve tabs. 100% limited edition, pure indigo dyed Japanese cotton. Pre-washed for softness, we recommend machine wash cold and hang to dry.
—02. During WWII, Churchill had the British military develop a 100% cotton waterproof fabric to be used as firehoses because rubber was on ration. Known as Ventile, it's water-resistance made Ventile ideal for use in immersion flight suits for the RAF pilots who were getting shot down over the channel. Unlike synthetic fabrics such as Gore-Tex, our Spring Ventile Parka produces almost no noise when in use and, because it is 100% natural, it remains breathable while protecting against wind & rain.
