Ts(s) Navy Military Pants

—01. 100% cotton, made in Japan.
—02. Cotton twill herringbone.

Words

Fatigues or military pants are one of my favorites when it comes to casual trousers. Lately I've been really liking herringbone twill fabrics too, so that makes the combination on these ts(s) pants very appealing. The fit is also quite trimmed down from what you might find on an EG or vintage version. That would definitely be a bonus for some, and something I'm not opposed to either.

Feature: Red Wing Factory Visit

—01. Steel die cuts.

Words

The Red Wing Shoe Company is one of the biggest brands to benefit from the current trend in menswear. Some have begun to shy away from their products because of the recent rise in popularity, but the majority remain steadfast in their support of one of America's finest brands. It's a company that makes a good product, and always will. I have become a loyal fan over the last few years, not because of their marketing, their presence at Capsule or their push for new colorways, but because their boots are well made, look great and work as well in the city as they do in the field. Last summer we were fortunate to be given access to the Red Wing tannery and shoe factory in Minnesota and these photographs, taken by Randy Douglas, provide a unique look behind the scenes.

Wtaps, Tet & Grind

Words

The fall collection from Wtaps has recently debuted online. The brand itself is one of my favorites from Japan because of the way it balances traditional techniques and reference points with new ideas. For me, it's also the best brand around when it comes to effective exterior branding, which is no easy feat. These images from the latest issue of Grind magazine feature Tet in a series of looks from the new collection. The black and white shots have a great mood and provide an interesting look at the clothing worn effortlessly by the brand's designer and creative director.

S.N.S. Herning Fall Accessories

—01. Knit cap in white and olde blue.
—02. NAVAL scarf.

Words

For most people the onset of fall is usually when the knitwear comes out, and for me that means the S.N.S. Herning pieces come out. The brand definitely has an impressive variety of sweaters to choose from but their accessories shouldn't be overlooked either. The warm wool is ideal in the months to come and this scarf and hat are both offered in one of my favorite colour combinations: white and olde blue.

—01. Trail parka.
—02. Shawl collar cardigan.

Words

Albam are getting ready to release some of their first fall products and have shot a handful of looks as a preview for the upcoming season. The brand hasn't done much in the way of lookbooks in the past so it's nice to see some well taken photographs bringing things to life a little more this time around.

MHL Staff Jacket

—01. Staff Jacket in drill cotton.
—02. Styled by Margaret Howell Japan.

Words

One of the most familiar looking styles in the MHL collection is the Staff Jacket, its casual styling and utilitarian influences making it something of a trademark garment. This tan cotton drill version is a great tone, perfect for the transition from late summer to early fall, and a versatile layer come winter. It's one of several new items recently made available in Japan, but our own selections from the collection will be filtering into the Stockroom very soon.

Alden Pebbled Long Wings

Images

—01. Pebbled black long wings.

Words

My two favourite elements when it comes to an Alden shoe are probably long wings and plantation crepe soles, but black leather and black soles aren't usually on the top of my list. In this instance however, the black alpine grain leather looks nice with the subtle pebbles and I could see these shoes looking very nice after a winter beating.

Heller's Cafe x Warehouse Tees

—01. US Army Alaska tees.

Words

Sometimes it's the most simple things that strike a chord. While recently visiting Heller's Cafe, I had a chance to look through the Heller's Cafe x Warehouse collection. The denim, washes and shirting were all beautifully done, but these simple athletic t-shirts are what I really loved. Yes, it's an $80 t-shirt in Japan, probably $140 in North America, but it's one fine piece of clothing and arguably the best t-shirt you'll find.
