—01. Shooting Stayed North Too Long.
The first thing to be completed for our third issue was Stayed North Too Long. The editorial, produced by Nicholas Haggard, Natasha Devereux, Philip Watts and myself, was shot in New York at the beginning of May. I stumbled across these behind the scenes images again recently, and thought they made a nice addition to the overall story.

—01. Subtle and warm.
I recently rediscovered a similar shirt to this in my closet and it's been getting plenty of wear in the cold. It's heather grey though and it has left me coveting one in a darker colour. The unassuming cut makes it perfectly simple and the diamond stitched quilting gives it a nice bit texture. Whether under a coat or on its own as a light jacket, it would get plenty of wear from me now and in future.
—01. Smooth tobacco Horween Chamois.
—02. Great Fall silhouette.
Slush, ice and salt are wreaking havoc on many sidewalks right now which make this version of the Alden Ranger Moc particularly useful. The heavily oiled chamois leather coupled with the crepe plantation sole and waxed flat laces provide plenty of protection from the elements — on a shoe too, which is a nice option when a lot of the time boots might seem like the only choice. The darker tobacco colour looks great too, especially with denim or darker chinos I'd imagine.
—01. Coloured backgrounds.
—02. Classic labelling.
WordsI'm going to use these posts as a way to reference certain things I'm working on. They'll be a reflection of current inspirations - a visual extension of the magazine section with the same title. They will also be a little more suggestive than usual, but hopefully add something different to the overall mood of the blog.

Details—01. Nomad's second location.

—03. Wings+Horns sweater.
Nomad has been one of Canada's best menswear shops since they opened their doors in Toronto a few years ago. Today, they are still leading the way in Toronto and have just opened their second location in the city. Now taking up space on Queen St., the menswear shop brings their strong aesthetic and nice mix of goods to another area of town. If you're stopping by Toronto, it's definitely worth making it to at least one of their shops. I once had a 7 hour layover in Toronto and took a cab to the store and back; I didn't leave disappointed, or empty handed.
