Words

Diemme continue to produce new colors this fall, but now they've added the renowned Vibram Cristy sole unit with the Morflex technology. The lightweight, comfortable soles link up nicely with the Italian-made hiking boots.

Words

A couple of our friends in Sweden have got together to open a shop. Tres Bien and Our Legacy have had a strong relationship for a long time now so it makes sense for them to join forces in Stockholm. The store is very clean, uses the space nicely and will no doubt be a success with the loyal following both brands have built over the past few years. You should also be able to find the new issue of Inventory on their shelves in the coming weeks too.

Fullcount Workshirt

01

—01. Great natural colour for Fall.
—02. Chinstrap detail.
—03. Nice textures.

Words

Earlier this year I remember getting excited for some fall shirting in fabrics like muslin and chamois, as a bit of a change from what was available last winter. This version of the always-classic work shirt isn’t quite as uncommon as those in terms of fabric — it’s just flannel. What I like though is that it’s just a single colour instead of plaid, which is a departure from most other flannels. The nice organic cotton is a great off-white colour and it’d fit in nicely with the browns and earth tones I find myself wearing a lot of lately. It's still got those familiar outdoor references but isn't something you see everyday.

Mark McNairy Gibson Shoe

01

Images

—01. Made in England.

Words

Another suede shoe on another Vibram sole - another great looking piece of footwear. The red brick sole might be the trademark of Mark McNairy, but it's not an ideal choice for the winter. These still have a clean upper, tidy welt and feature a great looking suede while offering a little more toughness with the thicker, more dense sole unit.

West Side Rendezvous by Katsu Naito

—01. Show opens October 21, 2010.

Words

Katsu Naito has worked a handful of jobs since he came to the US. We met him a couple of years ago at Capsule in New York, as he now works alongside Takeshi Ohfuchi at Post Overalls. He was always quick to notice our cameras and talk about photography in the booth. With his curious attitude and interesting perspective, he's captured a unique look at New York's street culture and the people he's come across. Today he opens a photography exhibition titled 'West Side Rendezvous' at the Nepenthes New York store in Hell's Kitchen.

Champion USA, Japan

—01. Made in USA.

Words

Champion is one of those classically heralded brands that used to make some of the best stuff around. Well, they actually still do, in the USA, and it's available in Japan. After just receiving our Real McCoy's fall order and seeing the beautiful t-shirts they've made, I wanted to try to find more. While only exploring their website for a few minutes, there seemed to be a great variety of reverse weave, made in the USA sweats, plain and printed. One item I'm always quite fond of in the early fall is a football t-shirt and these Champion versions are just about perfect. Great colours, rich tones and classic as can be.

Restocked: Inventory Items Utility Packs

—01. Also available at Partners & Spade
and Dover Street Market.

Words

We finally have one of our favorite Inventory Items back in stock. The Duluth Utility Pack is one of the most simple, functional and useful items we've made in the last year. It's the perfect size, and the waterproof canvas and lifetime guarantee are tough to argue with. The folks at Duluth Pack are also very easy to work with and we've made small tweaks here and there with each run. The latest update is an Inventory Items Utility Pack stamp on the back - although it's tough to spot on the navy.

Engineered Garments Khaki Twill Painter Pants

01

Images

—01. Classic painter pants.
—02. Fine khaki twill cotton.

Words

The painter pant has seen a bit of a resurgence in the last couple seasons. A few brands have used different fabrics and patterns to bring something different to the table, but other than the classics, I think this twill cotton interpretation is one of the best I've seen. It may seem boring, but I think the cut of the Engineered Garments painter pant is perfect and the khaki cotton makes them a very wearable, slightly different option.
