Acquired: Engineered Garments Tailored Down Vest

—01. Made in Canada.

Words

On our recent trip to New York there were only a couple of items I had my mind set on. The first was some socks from Uniqlo and the second was the tailored down vest by Engineered Garments. I remembered liking it when we saw the collection last January, but it was quickly edited from our shop order. When they started popping back up in stores this fall I didn't want to miss out again. At first the brown color caught my eye, but the blue in person was too good. The cut of the vest is pretty nice and it feels great. It's a bit puffier than I had hoped so wearing it under a lightweight jacket isn't as good as I thought. Overall I'm quite happy with it though, and I don't have to worry about kicking myself in a few months.

Anatomica Wakouwa Deck Shoes

—01. Available up to size 12.

Words

Anatomica is a strange brand that seems to pull together some very interesting products. As is often the case, the most simple are usually the best. These Wakouwa deck shoes are one of my favorite items that are offered through 35 Summers. I've always liked this silhouette, although it's a little more slim, it has a nice feel and works quite well with a more narrow trouser. I actually really like the dark tan canvas version with the black sole. It's a nice reference to the old Sperry deck shoes that were made for the US Navy back in WWII.

Russell Moccasin Short P.H. Boot

—01. Brown leather on Vibram sole.

Words

Russell Moccasin are one of the best footwear makers around, but unless you go to them directly, their shoes are very hard to find. There are so many good models in Japan, and it's only since Nepenthes opened in New York that any interesting models have been made available here. These short boots use a classic Vibram sole and don't look totally unlike our Yuketen collaboration, which definitely isn't a bad thing.

—01. Worn with nice casual pieces.
—02. Washed out cotton.

Words

Some new Sassafras items have been arriving in select Japanese retailers recently and as usual a lot of them look great. This multi-pocket vest is a nice casual piece that could be worn under a jacket or over the top of a heavy shirt or sweatshirt. The washed out tone looks great and the array of pockets make it ideal for packing up your daily tools.

—01. Post O'alls fall shirting.

Words

Post Overalls has gained a fair bit of momentum in Europe and North America in the past couple of seasons. After building a strong business in Japan, the small New Jersey based brand has started to open up its distribution, however it's still difficult to find a good selection of their pieces in one place. Present in London offer one of the best buys again this season and have just updated their site with not only some of my favorite shirts, but also some great wool jackets and chinos.

—01. Made in a lambswool mix.

Words

Nom de Guerre's knitwear is always the highlight of their collections. They have done a couple of styles for the past few winter seasons that always look great and this fall's natural lambswool crewneck is one of my favorites. The color is classic, the fit is good and the wool usually feels nice and wears well.

Look: Winter Ready

—01. All items available at the Inventory Stockroom except the J.Press socks.

Words

It feels like winter is around the corner as fall has become a little windier, a little rainier and a lot more chilly. Warm layers and a protective shell are essential, along with tough footwear and solid accessories. There are a lot of sweatshirts and technical jackets on the market this season, but you can't really beat either of these pieces, especially when paired together.

—01. Installation at Partners & Spade.

Words

Fabric swatches, coffee and magazines. The things that are certain to be looked at, consumed and spoken about every day in New York. Otherwise we've had some great meetings, done a couple exciting interviews and have been enjoying our time in New York this week overall. The weather has been chilly but it's been beautiful out. I don't think we've had one bad meal and each day has been better than the last. Here's a few snaps from around the city over the last few days.
