Preview: Inventory Item No. 012

Images

—01. Hand poured in Brooklyn, New York.

Words

We've been working on this collaboration for quite some time now and it's just about ready. It's a scented candle - our first non-wearable Inventory Item - and we're really pleased with the end product. We worked closely with Frederick Bouchardy at Joya in New York and thoroughly enjoyed the whole process. The scent, Fig, Sunwashed Oak & Amber, is quite intricate, but the smell is warm and subtle, filling the room nicely without being overpowering. The candles have been poured; we're just adding the finishing touches, but they'll be available in the next week or so, priced at $45.

Available soon at Inventory Stockroom, Partners & Spade and Dover Street Market

Neighborhood Hunger Shirt Jacket

01

Images

—01. Weather coated olive cotton.
—02. Detailed stitching and buttons.

Words

Neighborhood's Black Icon collection from this fall is one of my favourites in recent memory thanks to a number of more unassuming pieces like this one. The familiar military reference is there as usual but it's not over done with embroidery or printing. Rather, it's a faily simple 4 pocket shirt in a great shade of olive — an ideal colour for a fall layer. As usual, the details make it. Here they come in the form of the contrast stitching and buttons. It's just such an easy top to wear and with so many different things.

Nepenthes Braided Ring Belt

—01. Available in brown and black.

Words

A braided ring belt has been on my mind for a little while but I couldn't recall ever actually seeing one, until today. It looks like Nepenthes has again answered the call and have done a nice version in brown leather with antiqued hardware. It's definitely a good looking belt and something I could see myself wearing pretty regularly.

In Stock: Mt. Rainier Design

—01. 60/40 down parka.
—02. Reversible down vests and parka.

Words

We received the latest addition to the Stockroom last week. We're big fans of Crescent Down Works, Sierra Designs and the like, but after getting a look at Mt. Rainier Design, we were confident this brand was best in class in terms of styling, fabrication, design and finishing. The 60/40 fabrics are great and come in rich, beautiful colors. The reversible down vests are definitely stand outs, but the slant pocket parka with grey wool lining can't be overlooked. And for those in need of a bit more warmth, the down parka in tan with a green interior is very classic. We also picked up some of their Nordic leggings for some great functional variation.

Fall Again: Workaday Cords 

01

—01. Burgundy.
—02. Tan.

Words

It's definitely getting into the heart of corduroy season as the colors of autumn fill the sidewalks and streets. Just in time for the season, The Bureau have received their fall shipment from Engineered Garments, including the Workaday collection. The cords come in five colors, but the olive, burgundy and tan are definitely my favorites. You can't go wrong with the straight leg, colors and details, but make sure you size up if you buy a pair online as they fit quite small.

Sophnet x Barbour

—01. Waxed cotton & camo broad cloth.

Words

I like Barbour, but its a brand that I've never felt too compelled to buy into. It's a classic and I've recommended it to people, but I just don't need one. That said, I would happily accept this one. With a couple of subtle updates, this makes for a very nice, tasteful collaboration.

Post Overalls Duck Pant

—01. Maroon duck cotton.
—02. Classic bar tack signature.
—03. Made in New Jersey, USA.

Words

I've been looking forward to the fall Post O'alls collection to start landing in stores. Finally Superdenim has their first delivery and these maroon duck cotton pants are my favorite of the bunch. The fabric is perfect for autumn and with a slightly tapered leg, flannel lined pockets and Post's sturdy construction, they look great. Definitely a nice option to have for those days when you want to give your jeans a break.

Honey vs Black

—01. Team Pro saddle & bar tape.

Words

I finally got a new bike this week. After months of ebay and Craigslist scouring, I felt like I found a good deal and got what I was looking for. It's even the right size for me, which is an added bonus. Now, I am torn over whether to go with black or honey leather goods for the seat, bar tape and anything else leather I would put on it. For me, it was brown or honey all the way, but the red and chrome tones of the bike makes me think black might just be the easiest and most classic. Yet, I can't shake the fact that I love the look of the light color leather - tough times...
