South 2 West 8 Pullover Field Shirt

Images

—01. Made in Japan.

Words

This pop-over shirt has a moderately shiny satin fabric which plays into the military inspired garment. The dark brown cat eye buttons enhance the fine sense of detail and texture. The final product evokes strong vintage reference through its classic tones and simple fabric.

Words

Over the weekend Mark McNairy and WP Lavori took the Woolrich Woolen Mills collection to Milan for the brands official presentation. It was one of my favorite collections in Florence, so its nice to see a preview of the pieces in a slightly different light here. With the use of some cotton twills, chambray, mesh and some great prints, the collection is well rounded, offering a unique twist on the Americana classics, while injecting a fresh feel and an opportunity to buy the collection in a few different ways - sadly, not in Canada though.

Mr. Bathing Ape Camo Jacket

—01. Front.
—02. Back.

Words

I'm not sure how this piece passed me by, but its definitely one of my favorites from the Mr. BATHING Ape collection. While the prices for the pieces are not cheap, Present have just gone into their summer sale, so the jacket is slightly more attainable, yet I might still be waiting for another drop.

—01. Classic footwear enthusiasts.

Words

It's been a busy and productive trip to Florence so far. While it's almost over now, we've got another handful of meetings and collections to buy on our last day at Pitti. The show hasn't disappointing thus far, and we've managed to cook up some interesting special products as well that should be exciting to see next spring.

Nepenthes Arrow Moccasin with Crepe Sole

01

—01. Leather tanned in the UK.

Words

Back in early May I picked up a pair of the Nepenthes Moccasins and have been wearing them consistently since. These heavy, Swiss leather mocs are nearly the same but have been tanned in England and built to mold to your feet and still breathe exceptionally well. The additional crepe sole accents the leather and extends the sole of the leather as well. The darker ring strap and white stitching are another small detail that solidify this shoe as another brilliant Nepenthes collaboration.

—01. Photos by Tommy Ton.

Words

While Simon and I have been busy running from appointments to meetings, we haven't been able to camp outside alongside a slew of photographers to capture the style at Pitti. There are a lot of very nicely dressed men, and some great individual style on hand. Tommy Ton has put together a nice batch of images for GQ, while its a little sharper than my personal taste, for the most part, there are some nice images and its worth a scroll through.

Esemplare

—01. Designed and produced in Italy.

Words

Esemplare is only into their third collection and already have shown us an impressive range of garments. This was the first time I've been able to have a good look at their products, and I was pretty impressed on our first day at Pitti. The Italian brand is designed by a former CP Company designer, so there is some similarities in the technical treatment of fabrics, and the classic sportswear aesthetic. There was a great palette of navy blues, greens and tans in the SS12 collection, highlighted by a number of nice lightweight jackets, and a handful of knitwear pieces. So far the collection has only been available in Italy, where it is made, but it should soon be available at a handful of retailers in the UK.

Handy Dad

—01. By Todd Davis.

Words

With Father's day around the corner, I found this jem down the street and immediately thought the concept and layout was awesome. If I was a kid again, I would love to build all this cool stuff with my dad. The book provides supply lists, outlines building plans and uses colour photographs to detail the scope of the project. Skate ramps, zip lines and go-carts are just a few of the 25 projects that will challenge Dads of all experience levels, young to old.
