North Face Purple Label Waist Bag

Images

—01. Only available in Japan.
—02. Navy with white polka dots.

Words

There isn't too much explaining need for why a bag like this is useful. Whether its over a shirt, or hidden under a jacket, its ideal for carrying around a notepad, camera, pens or whatever you might need. Especially while traveling I find a small 'waist bag' would be good to have. I probably wouldn't wear it around my waist however, so here's a helpful modeling shot.

MHL Typhoon Hat

01

Images

—01. Navy cotton, water repellent.

Words

One of the best bucket/rain hats we've seen just arrived the other day. Apart of the MHL collection from Margaret Howell, this washed blue cotton hat has a great shape, and sits nicely on your head. It's broken down fabric allows it to look natural, while its repellent characteristics make it ideal in the sun or the rain.

Just Opened: Neighbour

—01. Neighbour SS11 long sleeve rugby crews.

Words

Over the weekend a friend of ours opened up a new shop in Gastown, Vancouver. The menswear shop is tucked away in a small courtyard, shared by Roden Gray and Haven, just a block from Inventory Stockroom. The space looks beautiful, open, clean and nicely put together. Saager, whom some folks might know from Unis, just opened his store with a soft launch, but there is still a handful of great products in stock. He's got a small selection from Mackintosh, Our Legacy and Outlier, along with bags from Drifter and an offering of Neighbour-branded rugby crew necks and ties - both made in the US. The shop is definitely worth stopping by, as there are also some small surprises to be found. It will be nice to watch Neighbour grow into it's first full season this fall.

Kent Combs

01

Images

—01. Folding comb.
—02. Wide tooth comb.

Words

For those of us who like to match our Vibram soles with neat hair cuts, you might need to get yourself a neat little comb. I kind of hate the classic black combs I'd been using, and brushes are often too big to maneuver a fine part. Maybe that's why I cut my hair off, but if I'd spotted these hand finished combs by Kent, perhaps I'd have a good use for one of these.

Wilson Knits

—01. Pock tees.
—02. 3/4 sleeve football tee.

Words

The next time I'm in Japan, I am definitely going to the Wilson store. The product is quite difficult to find online, even through Japanese shops, so it might just take a plane trip. But everything I've seen looks great. The simple, well made, classic looking pieces are ideal basics for anybody's closet. The sweat shirts, pocket tees, football tees, socks - all good.

Tricker's for The Bureau Woodland Polo Chukka

01

Images

—01. Wedge natural crepe sole with a wide trim and barbour welt.

Words

I haven't seen too many chukka boots from Tricker's myself, but the general shape of these special make-ups for The Bureau look quite nice. I think the silhouette of the upper is very nice, and it feels nicely refined, but the more rugged crepe sole makes it still feel casual. The crepe looks a bit bulky in the images, but I think once you're wearing them, and it wears down a little, it would look perfect.

Beams Plus Bandana Shorts

01

Images

—01. Patchwork bandana shorts.

Words

Beams Plus bandanas have been extremely popular over the last year, but this spring they decided to do a little more with the nice, soft, cotton fabrics. The patchwork shorts are a great way to throw some pattern into an outfit, while still keeping it wearable, blue and not too crazy. Patchwork blazers also can look nice in the spring, but shorts are a little more manageable, since you don't have as much of the pattern, and it can be partially covered by a shirt.
