—01. Features Vibram 2021 sole.

Words

As one of the last orders made in Viberg's original Victory factory before they move this month, these oxfords will always remind us of climbing around in the back of their small facility. The rich chocolate suede with the camel leather tongue, combined with the oil resistant 2021 sole make for a clean and simple work shoe.

—01 & 02. .......Research designer, Setsumasa Kobayashi.

Words

Issue 06 of the magazine is now at the printers. Another six months of incredibly hard work is behind us, and one of the many things I'm excited about this time around is Fumihiko Okabe's contribution. You'll see what I mean in a couple of weeks. Suffice to say, he was one of the first people I asked to be a part of Issue 07. In the meantime, take a look at Kobayashis, a piece he recently did for Nepenthes.

Unearthed: Vintage M&B Headwear Co. US Army Hat

01 02

Images

—01. Olive Green.
—02. Adjustable fastener.
—03. Orange.
—04. Army Shade 107.

Words

A few weeks ago I picked up a hat of similar shape, under the pretense of a gift for the wife, and I've been wearing it pretty regularly ever since. Mostly around the house. As is the case with a lot of these things: once you've seen something and decided you actually quite like it, you can't help from seeing other tempting examples everywhere. I spied this olive and orange vintage US Army Hat over at Swimsuit Department a little while back, and am now eager to try and find something similar for myself. For hook or head; it's definitely a keeper.

SS12 Nigel Cabourn Cape Cameraman Jacket

01

Images

—01. Naturally harvested beeswax coating.
—02. Windstop collar tab.

Words

Normally you feel like you've seen it all before when a piece you know and love gets a near-constant seasonal makeover, but with the Cameraman Jacket by Nigel Cabourn each new version brings not only a new look, but also a re-examination of what made the jacket so great in the first place. This time around it has been given a tab collar in place of the hood, and large buttons instead of the typical clasp closures. The new look is completed by mixing a beeswax coated cotton upper with Nigel's custom camouflage cotton drill cloth on the bottom half. A print so great, that we used it ourselves for the special make up of another of his classic pieces: the Mallory Jacket, which is available now at the Stockroom.
