Restock: Deadstock Swedish Army Belts

01

Info

—01. Natural veggie tan leather.

Words

It didn't seem possible, but fortunately we have managed to secure another load of Swedish Army belts. These deadstock leather goods won't last long, and with each load we uncover, the more unlikely it is we'll find more. We now have size 110cm and 120cm back in stock, online and in store.

Needles Deer Skin Moc

01

Info

—01. Inspired by Nike Air Moc.

Words

The Nike Air Moc always has some sort of strange appeal. But take that shoe and replace all the materials with the most comfortable and premium available, and here's what you've got. There is no way these moccasins aren't some of the most comfy shoes you could put on your feet. Unique, and still quite simple, Needles shows their expertise of reinvention yet again.

Coley Brown's 'A Recurring Dream' at Dashwood Books

—01. Letter press printed cover.
—02. Sunlight.
—03. Lamplight.

Words

Coley Brown's 'A Recurring Dream', which was recently published by the consistently impressive Gottlund Verlag, is available as a signed edition from Dashwood Books, courtesy of a book signing being held on Wednesday February 1st from 6-8pm. I can't recommend the book, publisher, or store highly enough; so if it looks of interest and you happen to be close by, then I certainly suggest popping in for at least a minute or two.

Makers & Brothers

01

Images

—01. Enamel Tumblers.
—02. 3 Legged Stool.

Words

I'm not a fan of that new Google image search function. It takes the fun away from the internet, which for me is the stumbling and searching through the overabundance of blogs, stores, and websites to find the source of something I've seen somewhere else. Trial and error, detective work, or just plain luck. These are my methods both online and in the real world, and so I was pleasantly surprised to "stumble across" Makers & Brothers this week, as I searched around to find an item I'd seen and was trying to track down. Established just last year by the brothers Legge as "an online retail venture founded on simple things; the handmade, objects of integrity, contemporary vernaculars, a curation of everday design and craft", the store carries some interesting pieces by several excellent contemporary designers. It doesn't hurt that I also happen to have a thing for stools at the moment.

Stone Island Ghost Ventile Jacket

01 02

Images

—01. Storm flap and hood.
—02. Weatherproof Ventile cotton.
—03. Fold over pockets with press stud closures.
—04. Camouflaged Compass Rose badge.

Words

Another new season arriving in stores, and another Stone Island post. The Ghost Ventile Jacket is available in Khaki Green and Navy Blue this spring, and although I've personally been eyeing up this particular jacket for at least a year now, there's honestly not too much else to say. A classic brand, using a classic fabric, on a soon-to-be classic piece.

Porter x Fennica Hill Pack

01

Info

—01. Available in tan and blue.

Words

The Fennica brand continues to create new products that fit in beautifully with their aesthetic. A collaboration with Porter Yoshida definitely made sense, and the result is a nice casual bag. The new ruck sack comes in two fabrics and comes in an ideal size.

Visvim Virgil

01

Info

—01. Black suede.

Words

The Virgil's are back, this time in three different suedes at End. The boots are arguably the best Visvim model ever. While the price keeps going up, and some have an issue with the heel counter, the black on black gives it a very subtle look. Light weight and extremely comfortable, the Virgil's are always going to be one for the 'want' list.

Info

—01. Field Cap in navy & khaki.

Words

Our first delivery from Engineerd Garments has arrived in store. Included in the shipment are some great accessories, a handful of shirts, a couple jackets and some really nice hats. The short sleeve shirting is especially sharp, featuring polka dots and an interesting rayon/cotton paisley fabric. The field caps also look great and offer a nice alternative to traditional ball caps.
