Nike Gyakusou Lightweight Jacket

—01. Available in Navy & Red.

Words

The continued success and growth of the Gyakusou line is exciting to see, and I am looking forward to the coming fall collection. I really love the concept and execution, but I had a hard time picking a few items this spring that I actually wanted to get. This light weight jacket is my favorite outerwear piece for sure, the navy color especially looks nice.

Over the past six months the Inventory team has traveled down to Seattle twice to meet with Eddie Bauer's team and Nigel Cabourn. We've watched the collaborative project grow and bloom over that time and we're excited to be working on an article for our next issue, to coincide with the launch of Nigel's designs for the iconic American outfitters. The small collection is now online at Eddie Bauer's website to have a look at. We'll also be stocking select pieces this coming fall in the Stockroom.

New Balance 998

—01. Made in USA.
—02. Red, grey & blue.
—03. Nice silhouette.

Words

I liked this model the second I saw it. This colorway dropped last year in the US and Canada, but seems to be hitting some of our favorite European retailers lately. The premium suede, nice shape, clean colors and the fact that its made in the USA at New Balance's best factory should be just enough to win you over. If not, you can actually see this particular style being made in the 2nd issue of Inventory magazine.

Reigning Champ Sweat Shorts

—01. Heavy weight terry cloth.
—02. Made in Canada.

Words

Heavy weight terry cloth, made in Canada, affordable and comfortable as can be. This spring Reigning Champ slimmed down their collection, but produced these great cut of sweat shorts. There have been a few versions this spring, but these more athletic inspired shorts are probably my favorites. I've been wearing them around for the last couple months and can't complain at all. The classic heather grey terry is the perfect color for these as well.

Alden Plantation Chukkas

—01. Brown chromexcel leather.

Words

These shoes seem to have a bit of a fall feeling about them, but that doesn't mean they can't be purchased right now. Leffot just received two new chukka boots from Alden, but my pick is the brown chromexcel version with a plantation crepe sole. I already own this version in a blucher, and they're great. Tough, easy to wear, durable – I feel like the sole gives them a nice casual, rugged appeal. I'd personally be interested in seeing this chukka in a suede version with the same sole as well.

Issue 04

—01. Hard in the paint.

Words

From the paper to the plates to the pigmentation, printing a publication is a pretty portly process. We've spent a significant amount of time at the printers in the last few years on press check, an interesting and enlightening experience that not too many people get to see. This time around we shot some footage and made this little behind the scenes video of the printing of Issue 04. Printed at Hemlock Printers in Vancouver, B.C., Canada.
