Spring Look

01

Words

We just had our one-year anniversary of the Inventory Stockroom this past weekend. We decided not to make a fuss about it, but we're still happy to have had a fairly successful first year of brick and mortar retail. We appreciate the support from everybody online, overseas and in Vancouver and look forward to a few more years in Vancouver, and hopefully even somewhere new within the next year or two.

Solmate Mixed Socks

—01. Mismatched with care.

Words

A company who knits beautifully constructed socks and accessories "mismatched with care". Each "pair" is knitted at Marianne Wakerlin's family owned mill in Central Vermont using cotton yarns from recycled materials. By doing so they create environmentally responsible cotton products and reduce the amount of virgin cotton that needs to be grown-therefore helping to reduce landfill waste.

Now Available: Kelty Vintage

—01. Constructed from Cordura Nylon.
—02. Classic 60s Design.

Words

Up until now, Kelty's Vintage collection has only been available in Japan. A handful of UK retailers including Oi Polloi and End have recently received a nice little selection of the bags. They are simple, clean and classic. The small Day Pack is one of my favorites, and a bag that I will probably end up purchasing this summer, just need to decide on the color.

Staples: Engineered Garments Workaday Fatigues

—01. Olive Sateen.
—02. Made in USA.

Words

I can't really say any of the Engineered Garments Workaday pieces aren't staples for myself, but the Olive Sateen fatigues are probably one of the best items they offer. Always a classic, the wide leg pant has just the right balance of clean detailing, reference to the original vintage version and updated fit. While that doesn't refer to the width of the leg, the cut of the pants and the way the fabric in particular washes and wears is really nice.

—01. Mono Workwear Volume 05.
—02. Lightning American Heritage Book.

Words

Among Superdenim's recent magazine releases are the latest issue of Workwear and an American Heritage edition of Lightning produced with The Flat Head. Although the monthly Japanese publications are always a great source of inspiration, it's these kind of comprehensive special editions that I find myself going back to over and over again.

Woolrich Woolen Mills Camp Shirt

—01. Blue floral pattern.
—02. Made in USA.

Words

Daiki Suzuki has picked out a handful of great floral patterns this spring. One of the less hyped, but nice looking shirts is this button up camp shirt from the Woolen Mills collection. I like the straight cut of the shirt, and the clean detailing makes it pretty easy to wear.

In Stock: Heller's Cafe

—01. Made in Japan by Warehouse.

Words

We were pleased to be offered the Heller's Cafe x Warehouse collection by our friend Larry earlier this year. The collection has grown well in Japan since its inception, but outside of J.Crew it's been tough to track down. This spring we were able to get our hands on some of our favorite flannels and printed tees, as well as a really unique sweatshirt and a great work shirt. The pieces have already been moving out the door quickly, and the numbers are limited.
