Gitman Bros. Spring Shirting

—01. Pastel Broadcloth Check.
—02. Rolled up sleeve detail.

Words

Gitman Bros. spring shirts have started to hit a lot of their accounts. The season's offering is one of my favorites so far, as there are more interesting plaids, nice Japanese organics, linen chambray blends and a new button up sleeve detail. I have always liked old Ralph Lauren BD's in this sort of pastel colour, so its not surprising the wide check looks great on Gitman's spring shirt.

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

Words

The best in Canadian made jersey knits are back in stock. We just received a large delivery of National Anthem and Homespun items in time for the spring season. From National Anthem, we have pocket tees and Russian Sailor shirts in a variety of stripe colours. With Homespun, we have two classic Henley styles made with their slub terry cotton. The products are all made in Vancouver, Canada and are some of the nicest, mid-weight cotton goods you'll come across. We'll have measurements online shortly, but the garments generally fit one size small, as it is generally made for the Japanese market. We're excited to be one of two Homespun stockists, and the exclusive retailer for National Anthem outside of Japan.

Exclusively available at Inventory Stockroom

Words

Last Sunday saw the bi-annual South London edition of Mid-Century Modern at Dulwich College. If you're not familiar with the event the best way I could describe it is it's a kind of Pop Up Flea for Mid-Century modern furniture and accessories. The show brings together the very best of the UK's Mid-Century furniture dealers and puts them under one roof for the day giving the buying public the biggest selection of 50s, 60s and 70s Scandinavian and Scandinavian influenced interior furnishings anywhere in the country.

—01. Red gingham.
—02. Blue chambray.

Words

The C-Post shirt from Post Overalls is definitely my favorite in the collection. This spring it comes in two of the best fabrics possible, a red gingham and blue chambray. The shirt has several classic work wear details, including straight cuffs, tab collar, contrast sitching and of course Post's casual fit.

Mark McNairy for Inventory Items Dainite Sole Gibson

—01. Custom make-up with leather split heel Dainite sole.

Words

This spring we decided to work with Mark McNairy again. Since our first collaboration, he's made quite a few shoes and had great success with the red brick sole, so it wasn't easy to create something new. In the end we chose a Dainite sole with the split leather heel that Mark hadn't been using. This adds a much richer feel, and a nicer balance of tone and texture. Combined with the classic Dainite traction, the camel suede upper is complimented by chocolate brown laces and small brown eyelets.

North Face Purple Label Mountain Parka

—01. Mountain parka with printed lining.

Words

The North Face Purple Label brand has garnered a well deserved demand over the past few seasons. Although its still only available in Japan, I can't help posting some of their best products. This jacket is pretty ideal, it has a classic reference, interesting printed liner and a nice tone of beige for the outer. It would be perfect for sashaying down the street with a tote bag and some boots all spring season long.

I'm going to have try one of these shirts on before I can say its too good, but the idea is interesting, the fabric choices are nice and we already known CYC make a very good product. Haven teamed up with Vancouver's Reigning Champ to make these raglan sleeve BD shirts in a handful of fabrics. The design looks clean enough, the selvedge lines look great, triple track stitching looks tough, but again, needs to be tried on I think.

Makr Standard Canvas

—01. Fold weekender and A-strap tote.

Words

Makr has been adding new styles to their collection at an alarming pace. Usually when that happens, the design lacks and the new styles aren't as good as the originals, however at Makr it seems to be the other way around. On top of the more interestingly designed styles, Makr has launched a 'Standard Canvas' range which offers some nice, simple tote bags in some great shades of blue.
