Present Wool Crusiers

—01. Quilted plaid wool.
—02. Made in England.

Words

Present have been working hard over the last year to develop a solid range of products under their own brand name. We got a sneak peek back in the summer and even then, the Crusier jacket was a stand out for me. The jackets are made from warm wools, feature nice quilting through the body and arms and come in at a nice price as well. The tones and fabrics look great, classic and very wearable too. Within the collection there are a few more items that are well worth checking out as well, but I wouldn't wait around too long on these.

North Face Purple Label Mountain Jacket

01

—01. Available in beige and burgundy.

Words

It feels like the anticipation for North Face Purple Label to break into the western market is building. I would imagine it's only a matter of seasons now, so hopefully this jacket is still in the collection by then. Coming in beige and burgundy, it has a number of great looking design aspects from the buttons to the collar to the pocketing. The burgundy would definitely be my choice, and it's even available in sizes up to XL for those willing to order from Japan.

Engineered Garments Worsted Wool Vest

01

Images

—01. Nice cut through the body.
—02. Thick, grey wool.

Words

The Engineered Garments collection is so large that it's hard to find or see every great item in one store. One of the nice accenting pieces this fall is this vest in a grey worsted wool. The fabric makes it for me. It's thick, has a great texture and is very much a winter item. It's probably the easiest model to wear of their waistcoat options and the tone would layer well with plaid, navy or tan.

Bag'n'Noun

—01. Toolbag.
—02. 'Napsac'.

Words

It doesn't feel like there are a lot of canvas bag companies that I haven't heard of, at least that I would like. When I popped into Old Faithful the other day, their suspended canoe was filled with a recent shipment of Bag'n'Noun products, and I immediately had to ask what they were. The Japanese made bags are pretty simple, well made and come in some nice fabrics. This duck canvas was my favorite, but Old Faithful has also brought in a nice looking chocolate brown canvas. The products are pretty well priced and look and feel great - the 'napsac' also comes in two sizes so the variety of options is perfect too.

Supreme Editorial

—01. Photographed by Ari Marcopoulos.
—02. Syled by Yohei Usami.

Words

There have been a good handful of Supreme editorials this fall, each of them very well executed. I wouldn't expect anything less from the NY brand, the subtle variety and use of legendary photographers is impressive. This editorial shot for Warp magazine by Ari Marcpoulos is my favorite however. The use of tone, motion and the styling all came together really nicely to capture a great atmosphere.

Waste(twice) x Lowe Alpine Parka

01

Images

—01. Gore-Tex Pro Shell outer.

Words

Waste(twice) have developed a nice selection of collaboration items in the last couple years. Often with a mountaineering feeling, the products also feature performance materials like the Gore-Tex Pro Shell on this mountain parka. I really like the two-tone colour combination here, offering a clean design with interesting details. Both the black and the electric blue are nice, and both are not easy to find.

—01. Army green Ventile and leather.

Words

Two of our good friends have linked up again for a special product. The Army Gym is one of the best shops in Tokyo, and its not surprising to see that Yuki and Nigel have teamed up on another pair of Hunt boots, this time using a military Ventile fabric to accent the brown leather and crepe soles.

Editor's Essentials

01

—01. Red Wing Chukka.

Words

Every season, or year, there are a few pieces that I tend to wear all of the time. These three items are pretty standard for me to be wearing 5 days a week lately. The Red Wing chukkas were tough to figure out my sizing originally, but now that they are broken in, they've quickly become one of my favorite pairs of shoes. The color is great, the weight and silhouette is nice and they go with pretty much everything. Everything, meaning oxford BD shirts and 12 oz sweatshirts. I consider the Engineered Garments Workaday oxfords and Real McCoy's sweatshirts both best in class, so I have a hard time wearing anything else.
