Ten C Olive Field Jacket

01

—01. The reinterpretation of a classic.
—02. Made in Italy.

Words

The fine folks over at The Bureau have just received a small reorder of Ten C product, and the standout for me is this Olive Field Jacket. The design is extremely close to the original 1960's US Army version, and the improvements are subtle but welcome: a breathable but water resistant custom made fabric, and a few small tweaks in fit and detail. If you don't already have something like this in your wardrobe, this might be the only garment of its kind that you'll ever need.

Words

There aren't a lot of good mid-century modern online shops. I've been following Just in Modern's blogspot for awhile and when I heard he was launching a new site, I was both excited and scared. Justin's selection of Herman Miller pieces alone is worth a look, but there are some great items by Knoll along with a nice variety of lighting, clocks and objects. While you won't find the deal of the mid-century, you will find fair prices for excellent pieces.

Arc'teryx Veilance Isogon Jacket

Words

When it comes to a combination of protection, functionality and weight it's tough to beat Arc'teryx. This spring the focus shifted to packable, lightweight jackets, and the Isogon is a highlight of the collection. Both water and wind resistant, this hooded jacket easily packs up, comes in three interesting colors and lands at a relatively good price point.

Collage Culture: Examining The 21st Century's Identity Crisis

01

—01. Collage Culture.
—02. Aaron Rose.

Words

The Heavy Mental recently published an excellent interview with the ever interesting Aaron Rose, concerning his essay 'The Death of Subculture' from the book Collage Culture. The book was conceived as a critique and study on the 21st century's obsession with reworking, often without credit, works of art and design from the past, while Rose's essay itself acts as a call of arms for young and contemporary designers to adopt a philosophy of creative innovation. The book, designed by Brian Roettinger, also features an essay entitled 'Living in the Mess' by Mandy Khan, which explores the notion that the abundance of reference that surrounds us might actually have a negative effect on the way we feel, and the ways in which we create.

Visvim Albacore Kofu Shirt

—01. BD shirt.
—02. 70 Egyptian cotton oxford.
—03. Elbow patch detail.

Words

Visvim's use of elbow patch details on their shirting has become one of their trademarks in the last few seasons. While I tend to go for the most simple and plain shirts when it comes to an oxford BD, their choice of patterns and tones combined with the Egyptian oxford cotton makes me think about bending my own rules.

Corona Summer Releases

—01. Cross Town Jacket.
—02. Explorer Vest.

Words

The new Summer 2012 collection from Corona offers a small but perfectly formed selection that pretty much covers all the Spring bases. These are easy to wear pieces in lightweight fabrics, with a good amount of attention paid to both colour and print. Light layering at it's very best.
