The Library of Independent Exchange is a non-profit reference library based in Plymouth, directed by Christopher Green and Mark James, and founded on the basis that nothing of its kind existed in the South West of England. Their aim to assemble a selection of contemporary independent publications for public reference has resulted in a vital, ever-expanding resource for the region. Follow the link below for more information on a project we're honoured to be a part of.

At a staggering 644 pages, its contents, art directed by Simon Foxton and Nick Griffiths, tell the 30 year story of one of the most important brands in modern sportswear. Over 300 meticulously captioned images offer a rare examination of Stone Island's famed archive, each page representing not only a moment in time, but also underlining the Italian brand's status as a perpetual innovator. The perfect accompaniment to the recent exhibition at Stazione Leopolda in Florence, this book is an essential purchase for anyone with an interest in clothing history.

—01. Round collar & 19th Century BD.

Words

Engineered Garments shirting is always a highlight of the collection for myself. I love the 19th Century BD especially, but the variety of fabrics in the round and tab collar shirts are usually quite notable as well. In our first delivery we received two classic versions of the 19th Century, along with two colours in the round collar, which features a really nice brushed flannel polka dot.
