Words

One of my favorite fabrics that Engineered Garments used this spring was this rich red linen. It wasn’t used on too many items but the Cambridge pants and the Fatigue shorts both received the bright tonal treatment. While I ended up ordering the red pants, I am now having a slightly hard time wearing them as there is just so much of the bright red color. The shorts however offer the same pop, but in a more manageable dose. I’m still undecided whether to tough it out and try through the summer or convert the pants into a shorter version before it gets too hot.

Porter Bi-Fold Wallets

—01. Tan.
—02. Brown.
—03. Black.

Words

Earlier this spring Porter released some of the finest looking wallets I’ve seen lately. The Bi-Fold wallets are made from premium leather and soaked in water to give it a worn and oiled look. The result is essentially the perfect wallet. The size and zipper function make the wallet very useful and good a keeping your financials safe, while also looking great and being easy to carry. I have had a tough time finding the perfect wallet and this would likely be my choice if the price were a little more accessible. Available at Nomad and Stuart & Wright.

—01. Silk gingham scarves.

—03. Made in the Italy.

Words

While the summer scarf might not be an essential for everyone, Drakes continue to expand their warm weather range this season with a nice collection of silk gingham options. When it comes to gingham, it’s pretty tough to beat red or navy, so it’s no surprise that these are my favorites. C’HC’M’ just received these along with some nice polka dot patterned scarves as well.

The Ring Boots and canvas Canoe pack and a couple of triangle packs are all nice looking spring pieces that haven’t been bought by too many accounts this season. The bags are made with a really nice tough fabric and the veggie tanned leather is the perfect accent.

Words

The Rugged Standard is the latest development from the man behind one of our favorite online shops, Superdenim. With an extensive selection of The Real McCoy’s and Studio D’Artisan, as well as fine offerings from Post Overalls, Tricker’s, Viberg and now Mister Freedom, the shop continues to build momentum by opening it’s first set of doors. The Rugged Standard is the first brick and mortar shop by Lewis Hull. Located in York, the shop is in a small and tidy space on the 2nd floor with clean wood floors and a nice amount of natural light. While the shop continues to add new labels and collections, it’s already stocking some of the most difficult to find Japanese brands in the world.

Post Overalls Shorts

—01. Back.

Words

We did include rascal pants in our Illustrated Examples this spring, but shorts of the same sort can also be a nice touch. The pattern and colors of these Post Overalls Menpolini shorts are definitely a little flamboyant, but offer a nice injection of tone into a summer outfit. I’d definitely pair them up with something mellow however.

It’s more rich photography, interesting people and great looking interiors. We not only have the latest issue, but a fair stock of issue 04 as well.
