A.P.C. Marl Crewnecks

01

Images

—01. 100% wool, available in 3 colours.

Words

As the A.P.C. collection has slowly evolved over the years, the lightweight knitwear has continued to be a strong point. The palette this fall is just right, the fits are always nice and the brand's general good quality means they're pretty reasonable value. The beige colour is my favorite from this offering and if I wasn't waiting for a similar piece from Margaret Howell, I would be pretty tempted to pick up this sweater immediately.

Fair Warning

Words

First off, we'd like to thank everybody who has bought a copy of Inventory magazine in the last 10 months. The support has been incredible from retailers and individuals alike. We knew it was a bit risky printing a magazine in today's market, but we knew there would at least be a few people out there who might buy it. Now, after two issues, we are nearly sold out of both Issue 01 and 02. I just wanted to let everyone know that we are down to the last boxes and if you have been waiting to buy a specific cover or issue, they won't be around much longer - especially the Margaret (02), Kenny (02) and Yuki (01) covers.

Thanks again for all the support.

Nigel Cabourn 4-Way Rollneck

01

Images

—01. Made in England.

Words

"Originally made using authentic Colonial Wool, woven straight from the sheep to give a coarse and natural handle to the garment. This piece is inspired by the jumper worn by Tom Bourdillion who was famously pictured wearing it inside-out."

This fall's 4-way rollneck sweater is one of the stand out items in one of Nigel's best collections to date. A big part of that is how directly some of the pieces are inspired by his 2003 Ascent collection. This sweater has a great texture and although the wool has a bit of a rough hand, you can tell it will age and wear beautifully. It also happens to be one of the best priced items this season, which is great considering the quality.

Porter Climb Pack

—01. Includes lined and padded interior pockets.
—02. Made in Japan.

Words

The Porter brand has never stopped impressing me. The variety of styles they produce is unmatched, each one manufactured to the highest possible standards. I've been increasingly attracted to mountaineering inspired bags lately and it's no surprise that Porter have hit the nail on the head with their offering. The Climb Pack is made in Japan from Cordura, comes in a great color combination, and also includes some nice pocket details and leather accents. I've been looking at a lot of similar bags recently, but this one will be tough to beat.

Reference Material: 2nd Magazine

—01. Issue 10, 9 & the Red Wing special.

Words

With an increasing number of great Japanese magazines covering the menswear market, it can be difficult to pick which ones to buy. Not being able to read them quickly puts the emphasis on product curation, photographs and art direction. For me, HUGE has been a favorite for a little while, and of course Free & Easy has made a fair few good issues over the years. Another title that's been consistently impressing us lately is 2nd, so we decided to pick up a few issues for the Stockroom. The most recent issue, the previous one and the Red Wing special edition are now available in-store and online.

Ebbets Field Flannels for Supreme

—01. Available in navy, red, green & black.

Words

On my first look through the latest Supreme collection, I managed to not click 14 images deep in one of the hat sections and missed these gems. However, one of the more under the radar collaborations in the fall collection is probably one of my 'must haves'. These Ebbets Field Flannel ball caps are great - simple, good quality, nice wool; add some classic branding on the back and you're all set. Now I just have to decide whether I want the navy or the red.

Nom de Guerre Wool Utility Shirt

Images

—01. Made in Japan.

Words

The Nom de Guerre fall collection is characteristically heavy on military references, and as always there's some great items to choose from. The garments are well made, use nice fabrics and have a great silhouette and this wool utility shirt is no exception. It's made in Japan and has an understated appearance that would work well among layers or simply as an overshirt.

In Stock: S.N.S. Herning STARK Cardigan

—01. Virgin wool.
—02. Made in Denmark.

Words

It would be tough to find a better all around knitwear brand than S.N.S. Herning. Their basic styles - the NAVAL, the FISHERMAN and of course the STARK - are some of the best looking and best fitting winter staples available. The latter with its large buttons, subtle knit pattern, comfortable wool and rich colors, seems to be a favorite of not just ours, but many S.N.S. fans. This fall we bought the classic cardigan in Sea Blue (Navy) and Olde Green, two very wearable colors that feel true to the Herning heritage.

&mdashAvailable in Sea Blue and Olde Green at Inventory
