F.I.L.

—01. A balance between new and tradition.
—02. F.I.L., Kyoto.

Words

Visvim is without doubt one of the most amazing brands of our time. From the beautiful product to the branding to their unforgettable retail experience, the Japanese label has created something truly unique. Hiroki Nakamura really has an eye for detail far beyond the stitching in a shirt or the leather on his shoes. His vision for his brand is showcased beautifully in these photos of the Kyoto and Tokyo F.I.L. stores. The balance of new, vintage, rugged, slick and the general color palette is perfect. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't partially influenced by Visvim when we created our shop, and I'd also be lying if I said this sort of execution was easy.

The Real McCoy's: Fall Goods

—01. Fall items from The Real McCoy's.

Words

Although we still have a couple more items and a couple pieces to be re-stocked from The Real McCoy's, I am always excited to look, touch and wear this brand. The quality is second to none, it fits great and works for anybody. There isn't one piece that we have from McCoy's that I don't personally like and couldn't wear with several others that we have. The M-65 jacket is especially nice, along with the great sweatshirts.

—01. Interview with Marilyn Neuhart, author of the book.

Words

An interview with Marilyn Neuhart, author of "The Story of Eames Furniture", and her husband John. Both have worked with the Eames Office in various capacities from the 1950s. Having been in close proximity to Charles and Ray Eames as well as the members of the Eames Office and their patron manufacturers for almost 30 years, the Neuharts had the extraordinary opportunity to absorb their stories. At their Los Angeles home, they tell the tale of working with Charles Eames in Gestalten.tv's latest look behind the Eames.

A.P.C. Knit Crewneck

—01. Soft, loose gauge knit.

Words

I came across this sweater last week at Gravity Pope Tailored Goods and quite liked it. Although I haven't purchased anything from A.P.C. for quite a while, I find that I am liking the brand more and more these days. Besides the quilts that are currently available in their stores, this sweater also looks really nice and feels just as good.

Post Overalls Canvas Engineer Jacket

—01. Lined with check flannel shirting fabric.

Words

We already featured Post Overalls' pants in the same burgundy canvas color - can you tell I like it? The Engineer Jacket adds some flannel shirt lining to keep you warm, and to offer a nice contrast to the muted exterior. The black and white gingham check looks great and I can easily think of a bunch of shirt/sweatshirt options that would look great with this piece.

Sassafras Corduroy Fall Leaf Pants

—01. Brown corduroy, perfect for fall.
—02. Exterior pocket bag, great for loosing keys.

Words

One of my favorite items from Sassafras gets a nice makeover this fall with the season-appropriate fabric, corduroy. The brown looks classic and goes nicely with the brand's subtle exterior branding. The pants have a really nice cut to them and look well-made. They are fairly true to size and Starling allows overseas orders as well.

Still Design

—01. Fiberglass rocker.

Last week I was in Victoria for a quick visit; the city is small, but it's where I grew up and also the home of Viberg Boot. Another small gem I came across was Still Design. The showroom is on the top floor of a tucked away apartment building and the owner has a fine selection of items up there. The furniture shop has also partnered with Four Horsemen, a local menswear shop, to offer a revolving selection of smaller items from the showroom and to help merchandise the store. The space includes a great variety of vintage chairs, tables, HBC wool blankets and some designs the owner has created himself. If you aren't in Victoria, some of the pieces are available online.
