Shoes Like Pottery High Top

01

Image

—01. Made in Japan.

Words

While the low tops came first and have become quite popular over the last couple of years, the latest design from Shoes Like Pottery, a high top variation, is equally as stunning. The shoes are kiln fired in Kurume, utilizing the ka-ryu process employed by only a select few. They are not rushed through production like most sneakers, but made expertly by hand.

Words

Unionmade have always been a strong supporter of American made goods and when it comes to shirting, Gitman Vintage is one of the first names that springs to mind. This season the West Coast retailer have a particularly nice selection of plain and patterned options from the Pennsylvanian brand.

Ten C Jeans

—01. Made in Italy.

Words

Ten C have expanded their line this season to include a pair of 5-pocket jeans. They are not made from denim, but rather OJJ – the brand's exclusive knitted nylon-polyester microfibre that is used for all their outerwear. The material will age uniquely and gracefully, acquiring a patina with repeated wear, much like the indigo fabric most jeans are made of.

Russell Moccasin South 40 Boot for Context

01

Image

—01. Horween Whiskey Cavalier Leather.

Words

Russell Moccasin is slowly showing up in more stockists in North America, having been ubiquitous in Japanese select shops for a long time. Context is a logical fit for the legendary bookmaker from the same state and they've collaborated on an incredible version of Russell's South 40 hunting boot. The Horween Whiskey Cavalier leather looks great, especially paired with Vibram's high-traction Olympia sole.

—01. 78% Cotton / 22% Nylon.

Words

Phigvel always does a great job at recreating and reinterpreting American classics. Here's their take on the iconic Drizzler, a style that will always be a timeless spring jacket, in a colour that would work particularly well with indigo jeans.

Levi's Vintage Clothing 1962 551Z

01

Image

—01. 14oz Preshrunk Denim.

Words

The 1962 551Z is the model that predates the would-be classic 505, and they're a great alternative to the more common 1940s and '50s 501s from LVC. This pair is pre-shrunk making size guessing a non-issue, and I also really like the wear a zip-fly leaves behind compared to a button-fly.

Adidas Originals MCN Pro Model 84-Lab

01

—01. Premium Suede.
—02. Interpreted by Mark McNairy.

Words

I've always been fond of the Adidas Pro Model, and that's probably why this is my favourite of the recent 84-Lab collaborations between Kazuki Kuraishi and Mark McNairy. The shoe's design is very clean and features McNairy's trademark sense of humour on the rear.
