Space

How much does our space actually affect the work we produce? I know that I definitely always want to be in a great space, a big space, and I suppose it does play a role in my daily mood. When it comes down to getting the work done though, does it really affect the quality? I've been hunting for an apartment, and even with the shop space, it feels like there are some things we could do to spruce it up. So I wonder if it's a matter of never quite being happy, or is there a perfect environment to churn out the best work ever? I feel I've probably done some of my best work in some pretty average conditions; could it be better if I had more space and more natural light? Or is that money better spent elsewhere?

RRL @ The Bureau

Words

It seems like a few UK retailers have picked up RRL in the last season or two - which is good news. It's one of the more rare menswear brands and you have to dig a little to find it because it isn't that widely available. In light of that, it's interesting to see a few shops putting images online. I can't imagine it will hurt the brand in the long run, and it's nice to see a little more of the product if you don't live in one of the few cities where it's available.

Nigel Cabourn Submarine Knit

—01. Made in Scotland.

Words

I can't believe this sweater hasn't sold out everywhere. I suppose it's not the cheapest on the market, but it's surely one of the best this fall. It's made with a beautiful navy merino wool and the neck is cut just right - an absolute nautical classic.
"Fairly fitted and extremely soft, Nigel Cabourn's Submarine knit is a new style for this season featuring a small chest pocket and hidden pouch pocket across the front. The tubular neck is cut in classic Guernsey style and the cuffs and hem are ribbed to keep the cold at bay."

Junya Watanabe x Mackintosh

—01. Hooded trench and fishtail parka.

Words

There isn't much that needs to be said about either of these brands. They both bring a lot to the table and I feel like these pieces are very well done. They're functional, they have some great subtle details, the colors are perfect and though the price is high, pieces like this are built to last.

Words

Clean and classic, Apolis have surprisingly teamed up with Patagonia to make a nice looking jacket this fall. The jacket is lightweight, waterproof and features a micro-fleece lining around the neck and top of the jacket. Available in a classic black, the jacket is a simple necessity.

Brutus Fall 2010 Stylebook

Words

Brutus isn't usually on my list of must-buy Japanese magazines as they don't generally focus on menswear. Their new fall stylebook, however, features Daiki Suzuki and Alden, along with some great looking imagery so I'll definitely be tracking down a copy this time around.

Yuketen Suede Angler Moc

—01. Features a Vibram sole, ideal for the fall.

Words

While I'm still overly excited about our Maine Guide shoes, I have to admit that these suede Anlger Mocs on the Vibram Christie sole look really good as well. I am feeling like the Angler might be one of my favorite models from Yuketen, especially for low cut moccasins. The Vibram sole, rather than the crepe, looks really nice and is ideal for the fall weather ahead. The shoe is just plain great looking and very well made.
