Maillot Wool Sweat Trainier

01

Image

—01. 50% Wool, 40% Cotton, 10% Nylon.

Words

Wool blends are an attractive idea as a material for sweatshirts and other long-sleeved sportswear. This variation from the Japanese brand Maillot has a wider boat neck and boxy, loose fit, which affords the pullover a slightly different but still simple, casual fit.

Our Legacy Classic T-Shirt

01. White.
02. Black.

Words

It seems like everyone I know is always on the lookout for the perfect T-shirt. I'm not saying that Our Legacy's Classic T-Shirt is that, but it's a pretty good option. I think there are too many varying factors to appease everyone with a single short-sleeved cotton garment, but you can certainly get close.

—01. Short and tall.

Words

Nicola Tassie’s thrown stoneware bowls and ash glazed jugs are available at Margaret Howell, which is where her work first caught my eye. A quick search then turned up a large selection of her pottery available online from The New Craftsmen, amongst which are these incredible textured porcelain mugs.

Reverberation Radio

01. Reverberation #127.
02. Reverberation #121.

Words

Last weekend I heard about Reverberation Radio from a couple of friends, and immediately became a fan. Having only gone through a handful of mixes, which are created by Los Angeles quartet Allah-Las, I've already discovered a number of songs and artists that I'm pretty excited about. The idea was to expose their fan base to a mix of tracks that inspire the band and their friends. Whether you are looking for an easy listening playlist or a jumping-off point for some deep musical delving, it's a great resource worth checking out.

Paraboot Avoriaz

—01. Norwegian construction.

Words

Paraboot’s excellent Norwegian welted shoes have had a definite resurgence in recent years and become an intelligent and unique option for discerning customers. Their boot designs haven't had as much recognition but this leather-lined hiking style is just as well made, featuring D-ring eyelets and the same waterproof welting.

—01. Paisley lined.

Words

The current Engineered Garments collection is one of my favourites from the brand. The variety of styles and fabrics make for a great mix, and the overall offering has just about everything you could want for the season – from classic staples to more playful pieces. The B2B Jacket is a newer style with a slightly more tailored fit; it comes in a handful of great wools, including this plaid option, and represents one of the standout items in Daiki Suzuki's Fall-Winter '14 collection.

(can we hold hands out here) by d.a. levy

01

Image

—01. Hand set and letterpress printed.

Words

d.a. levy was an underground poet, publisher and printer, and one of the instigators of the 1960s ‘mimeograph revolution’ whose life ended too early at the age of 26 in 1968. Jon Beacham, of The Brother in Elysium imprint, seems to have taken over the mantle of champion for the generally overlooked late poet’s work. This volume, which is hand set and letterpress printed by Beacham in a limited run of 250 copies, collects a number of levy's poems and a selection of his concrete works from the rare publication, Scarab, issued by the poet’s own 7 Flowers Press in 1966. It also includes an accompanying essay evaluating his role in the 1960s small press poetry scene.
