Post O'alls Fall Shirts

—01. Post O'alls fall shirting.

Words

Post Overalls has gained a fair bit of momentum in Europe and North America in the past couple of seasons. After building a strong business in Japan, the small New Jersey based brand has started to open up its distribution, however it's still difficult to find a good selection of their pieces in one place. Present in London offer one of the best buys again this season and have just updated their site with not only some of my favorite shirts, but also some great wool jackets and chinos.

Nom de Guerre Natural Crewneck

—01. Made in a lambswool mix.

Words

Nom de Guerre's knitwear is always the highlight of their collections. They have done a couple of styles for the past few winter seasons that always look great and this fall's natural lambswool crewneck is one of my favorites. The color is classic, the fit is good and the wool usually feels nice and wears well.

Look: Winter Ready

01

—01. All items available at the Inventory Stockroom except the J.Press socks.

Words

It feels like winter is around the corner as fall has become a little windier, a little rainier and a lot more chilly. Warm layers and a protective shell are essential, along with tough footwear and solid accessories. There are a lot of sweatshirts and technical jackets on the market this season, but you can't really beat either of these pieces, especially when paired together.

—01. Installation at Partners & Spade.

Words

Fabric swatches, coffee and magazines. The things that are certain to be looked at, consumed and spoken about every day in New York. Otherwise we've had some great meetings, done a couple exciting interviews and have been enjoying our time in New York this week overall. The weather has been chilly but it's been beautiful out. I don't think we've had one bad meal and each day has been better than the last. Here's a few snaps from around the city over the last few days.

—01. Thick wale cord.
—02. Single flap pocket.

Words

MHL focuses on utilitarian, functional clothing and these winter cords are just that. The classic ticket pocket trousers feature a thick wale cord in a nice casual silhouette from Margaret Howell. The tan is rich and perfect for the fall season. The pants feel very well made and look great with a beat up pair of Tricker's or even just some white sneakers.

—01. Spreads from issue #6.
—02. Press check.

Words

The current month should prove to be a good one for new issues of good magazines. While ours has finally started hitting shelves and shipping out, Apartamento has finished up their latest effort as well and we are anxiously awaiting its arrival. The magazine has gained a strong following and for good reason. It's interesting, well designed and features some great photography. It should be available by the end of November.

Deluxe McKinley Jacket

—01. Beautiful colour.
—02. Classic 60/40 cloth.
—03. Nice snap closures throughout.

Words

The mercury has been dropping quite a bit as of late and it's definitely come time to start layering up. Fall often means deep dark navy, grey or black, all of which can get a bit too heavy though, so a bit of life is great. The amazing colour is where it starts with Deluxe's McKinley jacket; it's so good it could almost end there too; but it doesn't. It can be easily worn over any of the aforementioned colours and nearly anything thanks to the simple cut and great understated details.

Illustrated Example: The Real McCoy's Grey Sweatshirt

—01. Illustration by Nicholas Hutchinson.

Words

"When the temperature drops, most people pull out the knitwear, but sometimes knitted pieces can feel a little too smart. A plain sweatshirt is the perfect way to forgo formality without sacrificing any warmth. Navy and black are good, but there’s something about grey. Like the white t-shirt, the grey sweatshirt is definitive; that timeless piece that any brand with a sense of American sportswear history does really well. Details vary, as do tone, weight and texture, but versions by The Real McCoy’s, Warehouse and Wilson are among some of the best."

We've just received stock of the fall version from The Real McCoy's and it's one of the finest sweats we've seen. The fleece is sturdy and comfortable and the color and fit is perfect.
