Engineered Garments Knit Ties

01

Info

—01. Jacquard & Snowflake.

Words

I'm not always a big fan of Engineered Garments ties, but the knit neckwear they made this fall is some of my favorite. The jacquard pattern especially is a bit more subtle than the fair isle ties and it goes great with ginghams and stripes. It was an item that I didn't expect to pick up, but after a couple wears, I'm glad I did.

Woolrich Woolen Mills Montegomery Coat

01

—01. Navy & burgundy.
—02. Collar detail.
—03. Toggle detail.

Words

While I've always liked duffle coats, I have never owned or worn one myself. Maybe it's because the length doesn't seem to work for me. Whatever the case, the use of navy and burgundy are a nice combination and no details seem to be overdone. Of course the stripes aren't for everyone, but they offer a nice alternative to the classic navy.

Falke Nordic Socks

01

Images

—01. Indigo.
—02. Grey.

Words

I got some of these Falke Nordic socks from Oi Polloi a few weeks ago, before they sold out, and I am quite pleased with them. They are really soft, a nice thickness and the colors are great. They do fit a bit big, so I would go with the smaller size if you wear anything below a size 12 shoe.

Words

Yuketen's canvas bags are made with some of the best materials, from the hardware to the fabric to the leather. These simple 2-strap bags are great for daily use, and the nice color options and veggie leather make it tough to choose from.

Post Overalls 'My V.S.O.P. Exhibition'

01

Info

—01. 'Very Special Old Pieces'.

Words

Last week Takeshi and his small team at Post Overalls opened their pop up shop and exhibition at the Nepenthes NY store. Unfortunately I wasn't anywhere near the city, but the concept behind Takeshi's space is quite nice, displaying his very special old pieces, some of which are the inspiration for Post Overalls garments, and some of which he just likes a lot. Along with the clothing garments, Takeshi has produced a book that documents his favorite vintage pieces, only available at Nepenthes.

Adrià Cañameras for INDOORS

Images

—01. Warm light.
—02. A table set for friends.

Words

These photos were taken by Inventory Issue 05 contributor Adrià Cañameras for INDOORS; a new project by the Barcelona based ARQUITECTURA-G firm. The project is focused on the reformulation and reorganization of contemporary urban housing, by offering both design and furniture specific solutions. With strong ties to Apartamento magazine, which publishes frequent conversations and debates established by the firm in each issue, it's not hard to see the influence of both parties on one another. Adrià's photos meanwhile, beautifully capture the feeling of an evening spent indoors: with good company, soft light, and plenty of food.

Rocky Mountain Featherbed at Silver and Gold

01

Info

—01. Khaki, Olive, Black.

Words

You could quite easily write about something new at Silver & Gold every week. In fact; I pretty much do. However, when the subject matter contains both great product and interesting presentation, what's to dislike? That it's not from a store based in the US maybe, or perhaps that it's yet another vest I'm posting, while still not sure if I'm ready to change the habit of a short lifetime, and make the leap of purchase myself. Those two reasons aside, the Military Down Vest from Rocky Mountain looks like a pretty solid addition to anyone's winter wardrobe. Whether you track it down and make the purchase from home, or abroad.

The Navajo Blanket

01

Images

—01. The Navajo Blanket.
—02. Weathered and worn.

Words

Yet another gem unearthed from The Moment blog of the New York Times; The Navajo Blanket by Mary Hunt Kahlenberg and Anthony Berlant looks like an amazing find, should you manage to track a copy down of the 1979 book from Praeger Publishing. Unsurprisingly my knowledge on blankets is not particularly up to scratch, but I was lucky enough to recently spend some time in the company of someone who's appreciation, understanding, and craft certainly is, for the latest issue of the magazine. Since then my fledgling interest has grown little by little, and this publication looks like something I'd happily add to the piles around the house, given half the chance.
