Words

A few weeks ago I picked up a hat of similar shape, under the pretense of a gift for the wife, and I've been wearing it pretty regularly ever since. Mostly around the house. As is the case with a lot of these things: once you've seen something and decided you actually quite like it, you can't help from seeing other tempting examples everywhere. I spied this olive and orange vintage US Army Hat over at Swimsuit Department a little while back, and am now eager to try and find something similar for myself. For hook or head; it's definitely a keeper.

SS12 Nigel Cabourn Cape Cameraman Jacket

—01. Naturally harvested beeswax coating.
—02. Windstop collar tab.

Words

Normally you feel like you've seen it all before when a piece you know and love gets a near-constant seasonal makeover, but with the Cameraman Jacket by Nigel Cabourn each new version brings not only a new look, but also a re-examination of what made the jacket so great in the first place. This time around it has been given a tab collar in place of the hood, and large buttons instead of the typical clasp closures. The new look is completed by mixing a beeswax coated cotton upper with Nigel's custom camouflage cotton drill cloth on the bottom half. A print so great, that we used it ourselves for the special make up of another of his classic pieces: the Mallory Jacket, which is available now at the Stockroom.

With a slight increase in temperature and the daylight savings time-change last weekend, spending time outdoors is feeling closer and closer. While we could use little more sunshine on the west coast, it might only be another month or so until backyards and hiking trails see some consistent traffic.

orSlow for Fennica

—01. Made in Japan.
—02. Based on 1960s style.

Words

Since we opened our shop, countless women have asked us if we might consider bringing in items that would fit them, whether it be mixed amongst our current selection, or an entire womens shop. While the idea is tempting, its a tough market that we don't know a lot about: but these denim trousers made for Fennica do look rather nice.

—01. Fashion Special.

Words

The latest issue from Huge magazine is now available, and it marks a new era for the legendary fashion publication. The spring fashion special is a new size, opens from the right and includes more pages than ever. The 'reborn' format is also reflected in the publication going to ten issues per year rather than monthly. Included in the special edition is a nice Engineered Garments editorial, among other beautiful spreads.

The latest Gyakusou collection is now available at select retailers and Nike stores. This spring is the first time they've made running shoes I've liked, while the rest of the collection is just as strong as usual. The mix of fabrics and the color palette are both particularly nice.
