MHL Pleat Pocket Jacket

Words

This spring one of the nicest MHL pieces is the Pleat Pocket Jacket. It's available in both a navy and a dark grey. The cotton jacket is garment dyed and has two patch pockets and one flap chest pocket. The fit is a classic Margaret Howell casual silhouette which makes the jacket quite versatile. The twill cotton is fairly structured and it's also lined with a lightweight cotton which gives the jacket a heavier feel than you might expect for spring. This is really an all season piece that will look great after being broken in for a few months.

Dana Lee FW10

Words

The self titled collection from Dana Lee continues to tease us with great photographs from the fall/winter look book. Again, shot by Jody Rogac, the atomsphere of the brand and the garments feels very natural, easily worn and comfortable. One of the feelings that does not come through is how difficult it is to find. The knitwear from the previous fall is yet to be seen despite everyone I know wanting it, however the spring collection is now available at Opening Ceremony. I am anxious to see more of the pieces but the fall look book again has captured my interest and looks beautiful.

Beams Plus White Bucks

Words

While the white buck has seen a bit of a resurgence in the press over the last couple seasons, they are still actually a little difficult to track down this summer. I recently was trying to track down a short list of stockists for the classic model, but found only a couple shops stocking white bucks. Beams Plus are now the latest to team up with one of the factories in Northampton to create their own private line. The factory has mastered the art of Goodyear welted shoes and continue to provide the most flexible production and design schedule. Beams Plus slight twist on the spring essentials make them a little bit more casual with the red Dainite sole.

Words

A couple months ago we had the pleasure of meeting with Mr. Nate Humble on his trip to Vancouver, BC. He had been doing his West Coast sales trip and we were finally able to track him down with the opening of the Inventory Stockroom around the corner. The American shoe makers have seen a recent rise in popularity among the younger crowd in America, and while it's something Alden are quick to admit, it's not something they are quick to cash in on. They've always believed in working slow and steady to keep the factory running and maintain a healthy business. They pick and choose their stockists carefully and their special make ups even more so. It was a pleasant experience going through the swatches and possibilities with Nate and I'm definitely looking forward to doing it again soon.

Superior Labor Combo Dish

Words

Superior Labor is definitely more known for their work with canvas, specifically with their bags. Through some of the toughest and most utilitarian totes on the market, the Japanese brand has started to make its way into the North American market via J.Crew. However, the brand does much more and produces a fair sized soft goods collection along with a variety of accessories and items like this combo dish set. The colors are great, it comes in a nice Superior Labor branded bag and they just might be the best option to have around the house or outdoors for the summer.

Words

Gitman Bros. have quickly been adding to their list of collaborators in the last couple seasons and the latest to join the ranks is one of my favorite magazines, Monocle. Of course, they aren’t the first publication to work with Gitman, but they have produced Gitman’s first pop over BD shirt in the process. The shirts come in navy, white and blue and offer the first ‘new’ Gitman shirt since the brand’s recent insurgence in menswear.

Engineered Garments Spring Workaday Oxfords

—01. New colours; Yellow & Pink.

Words

Some of my favorite items in the closet are my Engineered Garments Workaday oxfords. They’re sturdy, built well and have a nice casual silhouette. The fabrics are always tough and have a nice amount of character and feel. Over the last few season we’ve only seen white, blue and stripes – but this spring there are a couple of fresh colors added to the mix. Not many shops will be getting the Workaday products, but The Bureau now have the yellow and pink oxfords in stock.
