Our Legacy Caterpillar V-Neck

01

Details

—01. Made in Portugal.

Words

"The Caterpillar V-Neck is made in a very rare string that is treated and dyed naturally. The Yarn reminds us of pure indigo since it fades gently after being used. The string is called BRUCO (Caterpillar) and was common in the 80s, but in 100% polyester that created a feeling similar to a velvet knit. The Caterpillar knit is a blend of 70% linen and 30% cotton which is our updated version from the 80s. The purpose with this knit is a natural expression and each piece will differ in appearance."

The Real McCoy's Arrowhead Sweatshirt

01

Details

—01. 12oz. sweat, loopwheeled in Japan.

Words

While it's been the plain navy, grey and black McCoy's sweatshirts that have been very popular lately, this slightly heavier and slightly tougher 12 oz. loopwheeled sweat is one of our favorites in the store right now. There are a million printed sweat shirts out there to choose from, but The Real McCoy's again deliver not only the best fleece in terms of cut and construction, but also in terms of well executed prints. The nice shade of green and simple graphics make it easy to wear and great to feel.

Orcival Breton Tops

01

Images

—01. Short sleeve colours available.
—02. Made in France.

Words

Orcival is one of those brands that only seem to be available in Japan, yet the items are still made in their place of origin: France. The classic Breton tops aren't anything particularly new, but the fit and fabrics make them slightly more appealing than Saint James. Add in some beautiful product shots and I want to be wearing them everyday, along with some sunny weather.

Front Lines

01

Details

—01. "Front Lines, inspired by Capa's indelible scenes from the first 'media war', reminds us that the camaraderie of men drawn by a sense of duty to an imperfect moral calling can reveal fleeting moments of disarming grace bound by unspeakable tragedy."

Words

The photographs were originally shot for the CONTACT photography festival in Toronto but our own Chris Allen decided to take the opportunity to print a selection of the images in the first publication from Ikigai Editions. The news print release is 36 pages long, has 3 different cover options and was printed in Canada. The photographs were shot by Brendan Meadows, Simon Willms and George Moreira, and the styling and vintage archive came courtesy of Matt Robinson, owner of Klaxon Howl in Toronto. To accompany the project, Darrin Klimek also produced a short film offering a behind-the-scenes look at casual life behind the front lines of battle. Overall, the project was beautifully executed from the photos to the film to the first offering from Ikigai Editions, and we are very pleased to be offering the publication in our shop.

Sassafras Bulb Seed Shirts

01

Images

—01. Stripe version.
—02. Orange plaid.

Words

The spring collection from Sassafras continues to impress and it might even be one of my favorite brands this season. The quality, fabrics, branding and design all fit so perfectly together. The gardening reference again comes into play with the recent release at Utility Coop of the 'Bulb Seed' shirt. With handy side pockets and a nice plaid or stripe to choose from, Sassafras produce another winner.

Summer Ties

01

Words

There seem to be enough weddings and parties going on lately to warrant the purchase of a couple lightweight summer ties. I find the fall season is much nicer with tweeds and wools when it comes to neckwear, but this spring produced a few that actually make me want to dress up more often. Gitman Vintage, Engineered Garments and Alexander Olch are the usual suspects for their shape, fabric choice and colour palettes.

Want: 45rpm Organic Gauze Shirt

01

Images

—01. 7 buttons, 1 pocket.
—02. Made in Japan.
—03. Large tonal plaid lining.

Words

After receiving the SS10 Preivew lookbook by 45rpm in the mail, I was compelled to check out their modest online offering again. There was a shirt a couple seasons ago that I missed out on that was a patchwork red gingham, and I still think about it to this day - now I am thinking about this one. The cotton looks so soft, so comfortable and so perfect for summer. The colour, the pattern and styling are all just right, as usual from 45rpm.
