01. Fall-Winter '14.
02. Available in two colours.

Words

Japanese brand Name. has an especially strong showing for this fall, with its pant selection being the highlight. Although I'm waiting for their upcoming track pants that look like bathroom rugs, these unusual jersey trousers are great for a slightly more formal option.

The M577 style from New Balance has long been a go-to staple of anyone looking for a simple no-frills running shoe and in honour of its 25th anniversary it has received the special treatment. Utilizing premium pigskin and ENCAP components, this shoe has always been an undeniably great design and looks especially good in this two-tone navy, grey and white colourway.

—01. Made in USA.

Words

Admittedly it's sometimes hard to digest the idea of Fall-Winter outerwear when shops are receiving their deliveries in the heat of summer, but these classic down sweaters with a detachable hood are always a smart purchase for the colder months ahead. End has received a large selection of Crescent Down Works product, which can be fairly elusive, so anyone wanting one of these pieces might not be able to wait until they're seasonally appropriate.

Words

SHOWstudio offers an interesting variety of content through their well-known digital platform, and I find the edited versions of their live interviews particularly good. The 15-20 minute clips, which act as a sort of video podcast, feature a great mix of individuals with diverse backgrounds, making them well worth a listen.

Image

—01. Tonal grosgrain band.

Words

Lock & Co. Hatters are probably my favourite brand when it comes to traditional headwear. This anthracite felt trilby comes with a tonal grosgrain band, rolls up into a travel tube and features an unfinished brim, which makes it easy to flip up or down, creating a more casual aesthetic overall.

Markaware Inner Down Cardigan

01. Made in Japan.
02. Packable.

Words

There's been plenty of globe-trotting ski enthusiasts that have attempted to ruin shiny down clothing for the rest of us, but in similar fashion to when they try to look genuinely interested in art, they have failed. That means we're safe to pick up this beautiful, contemporary interpretation of down clothing, taking up the baton from The North Face Purple Label, who made a similar cardigan last fall.
