Happy New Year

—01. Goodbye 2010.

Words

2010 has been a very excited and busy year for us. It's been one of the most fun of my life personally and I want to thank all of those who we worked with over the last year, those who helped us out and those who supported us. We've got lots planned for 2011 and don't plan on slowing down anytime soon. On behalf of Inventory, I'd like to wish the best 2011 to all of our readers, supporters and contributors, and say thanks for a great 2010.

Sassafras Pruner Pants

—01. Pruner pants.

Words

Well, good luck finding these. It won't be easy, but I loved them so I had to blog them anyways. Sassafras have put out a new pant this fall called the 'pruner pant', and it looks great. A mix of cotton and nylon, the reinforced thighs feature a tonal green fabric and a washed green cotton for the rest of the pant. The fit looks great, the greens look amazing and they look unique, yet subtle enough for easy wear - a tough thing to accomplish in today's market.

Converse First String Matchpoint

01

Images

—01. Available in navy and grey.

Words

Converse is a classic brand and it always will be, but I haven't wanted to wear their products a whole lot in the past. A couple of pairs of Chucks have been in the closet at times, but it has been rare. Lately, I've been more interested since the Addict project came out. Now, I have to say that these Matchpoints are worth a look. The navy blue is a nice clean color and the lining looks like it might be comfortable without socks a couple months down the road.

Joe McCoy Bandanas

Images

—01. Available in two prints
—02. Blue paisley bandana.

Words

The Real McCoy's don't slack when it comes to accessories. Although their heavyweight sweatshirts and outerwear are arguably their best pieces, their bags, gloves, caps and bandanas are also great. We recently received these Joe McCoy bandanas featuring a red truck pattern and a blue paisley motif. The fast color cotton accessories are a nice touch and an easy item to pick up for $25.

Issue 03: Behind The Scenes

Image

—01. Shooting A Lasting Impression.

Words

One of the trials of shooting editorials outside and out of season is that the weather and your surroundings can easily affect the integrity of the outcome. You don't always have the luxury of a perfect location, but that doesn't mean you can't be aware of what's around you and use light and background intelligently. James took this photograph while we were shooting A Lasting Impression for Issue 03. It gives you an idea of what we were up against, and hopefully how well our eventual story disguised the fact.

Sale Report: Present

01

Words

The sales are definitely on and in full force in most shops around the world. On one hand, I don't like to see it, and definitely not too early as it hurts the industry, the brands and the retailers. On the other hand, I am a consumer and it is great to get a good deal. Lots of shops have heavily discounted merchandise, but Present has some of the best items in decent size runs that I've seen. These are a couple of items I've been eying up this fall, but there are many more to be found.
