Words

The recent feature on Hypebeast takes a look at the current market for printed content. They spoke to a few editors of new publications to find out the different approaches, angles and ways of getting niche content to a niche market. We were lucky enough to be included in the piece, which also features a couple behind the scenes photos by Chris Allen.

Yuketen Johnson Oxford

01

Images

—01. Made in Canada.

Words

The soon-to-be classic Yuketen Johnson boot comes back in its spring form. The low cut shoe retains its rugged look and feel, beautiful lined leather and nice silhouette. The touch of formality on the toe is perhaps more suited to a low cut shoe. It continues to have a nice balance of rough and dress, while being one of the most comfortable shoes with a Goodyear welt.

In Stock: TooLs

—01. Real Stuff for Future Classics.

Words

Simon first came across this new book only a couple weeks ago, and now we've just received a small shipment of TooLs. The book showcases 282 items that are noted as 'real stuff for future classics'. That's pretty accurate as the book is filled, page after page with beautifully shot, great products. With the occasional spread and inspiration quote, the book has a great balance of items and is definitely one for the book shelf.

Sophnet Spring Outerwear

01

—01. Mountain parka & field jacket.

Words

Sophnet continues to produce classic items, with updated fabrics, unexpected tweaks and high prices. This season is one of my favorites in the last couple years and the restrained design of these two jackets is part of that feeling. The nice shades of green are ideal for an outer layer, and they'll go nicely with the shirts below, or the rest of the items within the Sophnet collection. I like the mix of military, mountaineering, prep and streetwear that they provide. It could be argued that these are all of the popular references in menswear at the moment, and most of the time, but not many brands can combine them all in a tasteful manor.

New Workers Items

—01. 2-pocket work shirt.
—02. Triple needle oxford.

Words

I've yet to order myself a personal piece from Workers, but with the latest update, I'm on the verge. Blue oxford and chambray are pretty much a daily guarantee, so both of these shirts would slide nicely into rotation. I've admired the brand and shop for a while, so it feels like its about time to try on one of their classic pieces.

Beams Plus Bow Ties

01

Images

—01. Camo & tartan bow ties.

Words

The bow tie seems to have had a pretty strong resurgence in the last couple years. Maybe it was always there and I hadn't really noticed, but it feels like they might even be easier, or more enjoyable to wear than a regular neck tie. Beams Plus are never ones to shy away from a playful print or color, so this spring they have made up their cotton bow ties in a classic tartan plaid, along with a more casual camouflage pattern.

Weekend Shopping: Linen Trays

—01. Available in 2 colors.
—02. Made in Japan.

Words

For those of us that like our homes to look just as nice as our closet, sometimes we find ourselves lusting after an unexpected item. When I came across these linen trays at Brook Farm General Store I immediately was drawn to their natural tones and nice feel. The trays are definitely useful to have, but the fabric infused into them really makes them feel nice and gives them a natural and strong aesthetic.
