—01. Denim Contrasts.
—02. 3 Layer Gore-Tex.

Words

Visvim releases its seasonal PFD jacket accented with a beautifully thin Italian whaled corduroy, a three layer Gore-Tex, and raglan sleeves. I may not be able to buy something this expensive, but rather just admire for now. It's functionally attractive and unique, from the collar to the color it's a nice piece.

—01. CPO Shirt.
—02. Coleman Jacket.

Words

One of the nicest fabrics in this season's Engineered Garments collection is the navy blue uniform serge. It's a rich, dark tone, and a little lighter weight than previous serge wools they've used. We have a Bedford Jacket in the fabric, but these three pieces - a CPO Shirt, Coleman Jacket and Shawl Collar Cinch Vest - are exclusive to EG's Tokyo store. Hopefully there's a Medium Coleman Jacket left this time next month.

—01. Chambray & stripe.
—02. Striped tie, handmade.

Words

These handmade ties by Jim Christensen are immaculate. From the shape to the labels to the incredible deadstock fabrics, they are really nicely made. The redish brown shirting fabric is especially nice, and my choice of the new batch. Circa 1920-30s, it's a great weight and the color is rather unique.
