Engineered Garments Duffle Backpack

—01. Backpack & duffle bag in one.

Words

Engineered Garments aren't necessarily known for their bags, but for years they have put out some great canvas carriers of different forms. This spring, the duffle backpack turned out pretty nice, especially in this military olive green. The bag is simple, but easy to throw around, pack up and carry wherever you need to. It's also now on sale at the Brooklyn retailer.

Our Legacy Basics

—01. 'Perfect T' & 'Great Sweatshirt'.

Words

One of the things many new designers often over look are the simple things. Our Legacy however have put a certain amount of work into their really nice basics. Not even just their denim or chinos, but simply a good fitting, nice feeling pocket t-shirt and crewneck sweat. Available each season, for pretty fair prices, Our Legacy provides great basics for any man's closet.

Last weekend I had a chance to check out The Cheaper Show in Vancouver. The show celebrated its 10th anniversary with an impressive showing, list of local and international artists and a special book to commemorate the event. Some of the show's highlights were work from some of our friends at Inventory as well. Jennilee Marigomen, Chris Taylor and Brendan Meadows all showed their beautiful photography, and Hemlock sponsored the show by printing the Cheaper Book, which I am looking forward to getting my hands on soon.

Sassafras Feel Sun S/S Shirt

—01. Japanese fabric.

Words

Sassafras have summerified one of this classic overshirts. By making the Feel Sun shirt into a short sleeve, but still keeping the weight heavy, it creates a nice shirt, that can be worn a lot in the summer, but still feels tough enough for the fall, perhaps with a thermal or Henley underneath.

Leica Portraits

—01. Wolfgang Wesener.

Words

Leica is a great brand, making a great product. They continue to produce top of the line cameras that just about everyone I know, wishes they could afford, myself included. Anyways, they have been doing a series of short films featuring talented snappers entitled Leica Portraits. Short, sweet and insightful, the videos are worth a viewing, and will probably leave you wanting a Leica even a little bit more.

Lofgren Wabash Polka Dot Work Shirt

01

Images

—01. Indigo dyed fabric.

Words

I'm not too familiar with Lofgren, but the vintage reproduction pieces are quite impressive. This 1920s Japanese dyed indigo work shirt includes hexagon embossed buttons, scalloped double back yoke and underarms, and of course a railroad style watch pocket with angled button hole for all you watch chain enthusiasts. The details and construction of the shirt help solidify my first impression of John Lofgren as a brand, subtle and classic.

Workers Western Shirt

—01. Black.
—02. Olive.

Words

Set for release in July, these cotton sateen western shirts by Workers are a clean and simple version of a classic. Perfect as a summer layer, but equally wearable all year round, I like the use of earthier tones at a time when most brands are offering something altogether brighter.

Visvim Skagway Lo Denim

01

Image

—01. Denim and leopard print upper.

Words

I know the pricing is prohibitive to many - myself included - but these are a prime example of what Visvim does best - using a classic silhouette and taking it somewhere new; making it the best it can be through considered design and innovation. The combination of grey denim and tonal leopard print on the tongue and heel is a measured touch, unique but not overpowering, making them easy to wear, but a little more interesting than standard cap toe options.
