Sale Report: Present

01

Words

The sales are definitely on and in full force in most shops around the world. On one hand, I don't like to see it, and definitely not too early as it hurts the industry, the brands and the retailers. On the other hand, I am a consumer and it is great to get a good deal. Lots of shops have heavily discounted merchandise, but Present has some of the best items in decent size runs that I've seen. These are a couple of items I've been eying up this fall, but there are many more to be found.

—01. Fatigue Shorts and Work Shirt.
—02. Various looks from the collection.

Words

Engineered Garments' Spring-Summer '11 lookbook has just been added to their website. Built on a foundation of familiar classics, the collection is defined by its carefully chosen group of fabrics - pattern and texture playing a central role in the overall aesthetic. While it's only ever possible to highlight a fraction of the options available, EG do a great job with their lookbooks and this season is no exception. Follow the link below for a more detailed sense of things to come.

The Real McCoy's N-3 Utility Shirt

—01. Olive N-3 Utility Shirt.
—02. 80 count yarn.
—03. USN stamp.

Words

Talking about The Real McCoy's brand in the shop today, I realized part of the reason that I like the garments so much, which I hadn't really thought about before. While the artificial aging and breaking-in can look interesting, I think that the way The Real McCoy's produce their garments new, and as they were originally issued, it allows a much nicer natural feeling to the goods. While this shirt might not showcase the finest patina specifically, it is a nice looking shirt, and it just arrived at Superdenim.

—01. One day sale, in-store and by phone order only.

Words

Inventory Stockroom has never put products on sale before, and we don't plan on making a habit of it. However, it's a tradition in Canada to have a Boxing Day sale so we've decided to join in for one day. On December 26th, almost everything will be 20% off, with some items up to 40% off (excluding magazines, books and Inverallan knit caps). The sale will be in-store and by phone order only, and will not apply to online purchases. There are limited styles and sizes left at this stage of the season, so it might be your last chance to snag that item you've been eyeing up before it disappears.

In Stock: Apartamento #06

01

Images

—01. Issue # 06.

Words

Apartamento is one of the best magazines out there today. It's one of my favorites and I was pretty excited to get a chance to contribute to the latest issue, although it's a small piece. It has just been released and we received our shipment of copies yesterday. It's their biggest yet, and on the first couple of flips through, it's yet another beautiful offering from the interiors publication. With features on Carl Johan De Geer, Paz de la Huerta, Leon Ransmeier and 6a Architects, there is a lot of reading to do and great photography to look at. As usual, it won't be in stock for too long.

Issue 03: Unseen

—01. These Things Take Time.
—02. Saving The Nation.

Words

Editing the fashion stories for a new issue of the magazine is never an easy process and there's always some great shots that don't get used. These images were produced for the Issue 03 editorials These Things Take Time by Angelo Baque and Rafael Rios, and Saving The Nation by Stephen Mann and Neil Bedford. Neither appeared in the final stories, but I didn't want them to go unseen.

Bedwin Alvin Coat

Images

—01. Nice blue indigo
—02. Collar details

Words

It took a little while for Bedwin's Fall collection to arrive in shops outside of Japan but it's been worth the wait. I've been pleased to see that a couple of shops brought in one of my favourite pieces from the collection — the 'Alvin' chore coat. Made from indigo Japanese denim, the coat features subtle hickory stripes that give it a nice lighter tone of blue. This is complimented well by white stitching and a sand coloured leather collar. The pocket configuration is great and unlike many similar coats, the smaller buttons are a nice size and their variety is a nice nod to vintage versions.
