Spring Style

—01. Nice contrast of patterns.
—02. Floral and olive, almost always great together.

Words

Simple use of fabric textures and patterns is generally pretty key to any outfit. I particularly like the mix of these two looks. Using knit cotton, floral patterns, oxford and a simple military olive, you can pretty much come up with enough combinations to last you a good few years. The way the items of Engineered Garment's spring collection work together are pretty tough to beat.

Words

The International Stussy Tribe is an impressive brand that has transcending the decades and sub-cultures in a way not many brands ever could. This old video feature on the brand is great, and a nice reminder about why Stussy will always have a special place in our view.

Beams Plus continue to grow their vast and impressive range of accessories. Socks seem to be a popular item these days, and Beams Plus have not held back with their color choices. These short versions are a nice alternative for the spring when shorts come out, or when you don't need to keep quite as warm.

Yuketen Johnson Oxford

01

—01. Made in Canada.

Words

The soon-to-be classic Yuketen Johnson boot comes back in its spring form. The low cut shoe retains its rugged look and feel, beautiful lined leather and nice silhouette. The touch of formality on the toe is perhaps more suited to a low cut shoe. It continues to have a nice balance of rough and dress, while being one of the most comfortable shoes with a Goodyear welt.

—01. Real Stuff for Future Classics.

Words

Simon first came across this new book only a couple weeks ago, and now we've just received a small shipment of TooLs. The book showcases 282 items that are noted as 'real stuff for future classics'. That's pretty accurate as the book is filled, page after page with beautifully shot, great products. With the occasional spread and inspiration quote, the book has a great balance of items and is definitely one for the book shelf.

Sophnet Spring Outerwear

—01. Mountain parka & field jacket.

Words

Sophnet continues to produce classic items, with updated fabrics, unexpected tweaks and high prices. This season is one of my favorites in the last couple years and the restrained design of these two jackets is part of that feeling. The nice shades of green are ideal for an outer layer, and they'll go nicely with the shirts below, or the rest of the items within the Sophnet collection. I like the mix of military, mountaineering, prep and streetwear that they provide. It could be argued that these are all of the popular references in menswear at the moment, and most of the time, but not many brands can combine them all in a tasteful manor.
