Alden Plantation Chukkas

—01. Brown chromexcel leather.

Words

These shoes seem to have a bit of a fall feeling about them, but that doesn't mean they can't be purchased right now. Leffot just received two new chukka boots from Alden, but my pick is the brown chromexcel version with a plantation crepe sole. I already own this version in a blucher, and they're great. Tough, easy to wear, durable – I feel like the sole gives them a nice casual, rugged appeal. I'd personally be interested in seeing this chukka in a suede version with the same sole as well.

Issue 04

—01. Hard in the paint.

Words

From the paper to the plates to the pigmentation, printing a publication is a pretty portly process. We've spent a significant amount of time at the printers in the last few years on press check, an interesting and enlightening experience that not too many people get to see. This time around we shot some footage and made this little behind the scenes video of the printing of Issue 04. Printed at Hemlock Printers in Vancouver, B.C., Canada.

Aircraft

—01. Available in apple green and blue.

Words

"One of Nigel Cabourn's new styles for the spring is the Aircraft Jacket. Quick to become another classic, the aviation influence played a big role in this spring's collection. This is without doubt our favorite piece from his recent offering. Made in apple green cotton camebric, the light weight jacket is a great all-year round piece."

—01. Honey saddle.
—02. Leather grip tape.

Words

Sadly the summer in Vancouver has not yet landed, not even really a good dose of spring either. I've been looking forward to riding my bike daily, but the consistent rain has put a damper to my warm weather dreams. Over the last fall/winter, I found a bike the I really like and have slowly been outfitting it with the pieces, including the matching honey saddle and grips - was there really another option?

45rpm Spring

—01. Double blues.
—02. A hat I could never wear.

Words

Looking through the recent update of 45rpm's summer look book, there are a number of beautiful shots, nothing surprising. But this round I actually found that I liked more of the womens looks. The blues, patterns and simplicity were nice, and the garments aren't overly feminine, so I felt they were definitely worth a look.
