MHL Corduroy Trousers

—01. Thick wale cord.
—02. Single flap pocket.

Words

MHL focuses on utilitarian, functional clothing and these winter cords are just that. The classic ticket pocket trousers feature a thick wale cord in a nice casual silhouette from Margaret Howell. The tan is rich and perfect for the fall season. The pants feel very well made and look great with a beat up pair of Tricker's or even just some white sneakers.

—01. Spreads from issue #6.

Words

The current month should prove to be a good one for new issues of good magazines. While ours has finally started hitting shelves and shipping out, Apartamento has finished up their latest effort as well and we are anxiously awaiting its arrival. The magazine has gained a strong following and for good reason. It's interesting, well designed and features some great photography. It should be available by the end of November.

Deluxe McKinley Jacket

—01. Beautiful colour.
—02. Classic 60/40 cloth.
—03. Nice snap closures throughout.

Words

The mercury has been dropping quite a bit as of late and it's definitely come time to start layering up. Fall often means deep dark navy, grey or black, all of which can get a bit too heavy though, so a bit of life is great. The amazing colour is where it starts with Deluxe's McKinley jacket; it's so good it could almost end there too; but it doesn't. It can be easily worn over any of the aforementioned colours and nearly anything thanks to the simple cut and great understated details.

Illustrated Example: The Real McCoy's Grey Sweatshirt

—01. Illustration by Nicholas Hutchinson.

Words

"When the temperature drops, most people pull out the knitwear, but sometimes knitted pieces can feel a little too smart. A plain sweatshirt is the perfect way to forgo formality without sacrificing any warmth. Navy and black are good, but there’s something about grey. Like the white t-shirt, the grey sweatshirt is definitive; that timeless piece that any brand with a sense of American sportswear history does really well. Details vary, as do tone, weight and texture, but versions by The Real McCoy’s, Warehouse and Wilson are among some of the best."

We've just received stock of the fall version from The Real McCoy's and it's one of the finest sweats we've seen. The fleece is sturdy and comfortable and the color and fit is perfect.

—01. A look behind the Issue 03 editorial by James Pearson-Howes and Simon Roe.

Words

One of the strong points of our latest issue is the editorials. Thanks to the fashion direction of Simon Roe, there's a great balance, some interesting brand features and a tightly edited vision overall. For his own story, Simon worked with James Pearson-Howes to produce a rich and dark take on the Woolrich Woolen Mills fall collection. It was shot in East London and features some great looks from this season. James also captured some nice video footage in between photos.

Old Faithful: New Items

—01. MacAusland's wool blankets.
—02. Steele Canvas laundry baskets.

Words

Old Faithful has quickly become one of my favorite stores in Vancouver. Besides the space being incredibly beautiful and welcoming, Walter Manning continues to bring in great items from printed matter to furniture to vintage lighting. Right now, he's got a handful of items that are high on my 'want' list, but these wool blankets and canvas laundry baskets are at the top. The blankets are especially nice, and they're also made in Canada. I will definitely be picking one up very soon as the temperature has dropped and we're supposedly in for our worst winter ever in Vancouver.
