Sophnet x Barbour

—01. Waxed cotton & camo broad cloth.

Words

I like Barbour, but its a brand that I've never felt too compelled to buy into. It's a classic and I've recommended it to people, but I just don't need one. That said, I would happily accept this one. With a couple of subtle updates, this makes for a very nice, tasteful collaboration.

Post Overalls Duck Pant

—01. Maroon duck cotton.
—02. Classic bar tack signature.
—03. Made in New Jersey, USA.

Words

I've been looking forward to the fall Post O'alls collection to start landing in stores. Finally Superdenim has their first delivery and these maroon duck cotton pants are my favorite of the bunch. The fabric is perfect for autumn and with a slightly tapered leg, flannel lined pockets and Post's sturdy construction, they look great. Definitely a nice option to have for those days when you want to give your jeans a break.

Honey vs Black

—01. Team Pro saddle & bar tape.

Words

I finally got a new bike this week. After months of ebay and Craigslist scouring, I felt like I found a good deal and got what I was looking for. It's even the right size for me, which is an added bonus. Now, I am torn over whether to go with black or honey leather goods for the seat, bar tape and anything else leather I would put on it. For me, it was brown or honey all the way, but the red and chrome tones of the bike makes me think black might just be the easiest and most classic. Yet, I can't shake the fact that I love the look of the light color leather - tough times...

Haversack Socks

—01. Navy, green and red.
—02. Made in Japan.

Words

It feels like fall when I see socks like these starting to hit the shelves. What else do you need when it gets cold? Some nice Japanese cotton socks with a great color palette and nice design is definitely a good start. Sure, you might want some boots, a new pair of jeans and a nice sweat shirt - but then, its socks.

MWR 6" Work Boots

—01. Black roughout suede with green stitching.
—02. Custom gold eyelets.

Words

Rest Store is one of downtown Manhattan's hidden retail gems. Their in-house line, Made With Rest, features an assortment of hand crafted and collaborative goods ranging from lighters and soap to shirts and footwear. One of the best products I've seen from the line lately is the MWR 6" Work Boot. I'm not normally a big fan of black footwear but the simple silhouette looks amazing here in thin roughout suede with green stitching on the low profile Vibram sole. The boots are loaded with detail thanks to a heel stamp, tongue tag and custom gold "MWR" eyelets. Made in USA with goodyear welt construction is always a good thing too. They're available at both the Rest Store and at the recently opened Nepenthes shop, where you can currently find a selected variety of goods from Rest Store.

Post Overalls Royal Traveler Vest

01

Images

—01. Olive.
—02. Grey.

Words

Post O'alls is responsible for some of the best looking vests on the market. They offer a variety of pocket details, collar cuts and fabrics, but the Royal Traveler is definitely my favorite. I'm a bit of a sucker for keeping things simple so these olive and grey twill versions are perfect. Both are very wearable, but the olive would my be pick.

Woolrich Woolen Mills Over Shirt

01

Images

—01. Perfectly understated
—02. Fantastic pattern and texture.

Words

Most of my jackets are fairly light weight and it's getting a bit too cold now to wear them over just a shirt. It's not quite cold enough for a sweater yet though, and to be honest I'm a bit bored with most of mine. This simple, classic over shirt from Woolrich Woolen Mills fills a void for me as it makes for an easy middle layer. As with most W.W.M., for me it's about the fabric, primarily the colour. From a bit of a distance it's a great Prussian blue, then up close you get that nice bit of pattern with the herringbone weave. The straightforward style of the shirt with the flap pockets can't be argued with either — it's just an all around great staple.
