Visvim Suede Foley

Words

I've been on the fence with the Foley since Visvim first introduced it a couple seasons ago. From afar the sneaker is clean, takes cues from the right originals and is executed nicely. Since leaving most of my sneaker choices behind however, I find it hard wearing shoes with really round toes. Beyond that silly personal issue, the latest suede edition of the Foley is definitely my favorite. The palette is beautiful, the Goodyear welted soles are a bonus and they are no doubt very comfortable.

Words

As some of you know, Inventory is preparing to open its first shop in the coming weeks. The process of printing Issue 02 and getting the space ready has been strenuous but fun, and definitely exciting. As you get closer to finishing this kind of project, there's always small details to address and things to find that will look great and improve the space. Some of them we've got, others we are yet to find. It will always be a process, but we're looking forward to announcing the opening date very soon.

Albam Ventile Alpine Jacket

—01. Orange Ventile.
—02. Taped seams.

Words

Albam continue to develop and push their products in design and functionality. Their outerwear has been one of the most obvious examples of this as the materials used, simplicity of design and production techniques have all taken steps forward. The Apline jacket will be Albam's first made from Ventile with taped seams and they say it's the ultimate evolution of the Fisherman's Cagoule in terms of performance and functionality. Overall, it's a cleaner design made from a superior fabric. Coming in orange, navy and olive, it will be hitting Albam locations in June.

Look: Short Sleeves & Shorts

01

Words

The weather has been great the last couple of weeks, yet the shorts have only come out once so far. The real summer heat is only around the corner and I am personally after a pair of the EG fatigue shorts for the rest of the season. The MHL short sleeve work shirt is a great summer choice and you always need a pop of color, supplied by the Sperry Top-Siders this time around.

Atlantic Works for Beams Plus

—01. White suede beef-roll loafer.
—02. Nice silhouette.
—03. Red brick sole.

Words

Atlantic Works and Beams Plus seem to have formed a fairly strong relationship in the last few seasons as the footwear company has now made a handful of great looking shoes in collaboration with the Japanese retailer. These loafers are given a preppy twist by adding the red brick sole and pairing it with a white suede. It's usually a combination reserved for bucks, but in this case the result is a great summer shoe.

In Stock: National Anthem

01

Images

—01. Russian Sailor Shirt.
—02. Made in Canada.

Words

National Anthem was one of those brands that looked great when we discovered it through select online Japanese web stores. After closer inspection and finding out that it was made in Vancouver, we had to dig a little deeper. Having been able to sneak a couple of their classic spring items into a recent production run, we are happy to add the brand to our stock list. These National Anthem Russian Sailor shirts are made from medium weight cotton in a classic Breton style, but instead of the usual wide cut neck, they have a nice crew neck. The overall shape is great and they work just as well over a shirt as they do on their own.

Spring Patterns

Words

These images have been going around the Internet for a little while and I couldn't help but post them. The concept is pretty humorous, but the photographs themselves are great. All the elements are perfect; not only the colours in the shirts and on the canvas, but also the hazy backgrounds and really lush green landscape.
