Converse First String Matchpoint

—01. Available in navy and grey.

Words

Converse is a classic brand and it always will be, but I haven't wanted to wear their products a whole lot in the past. A couple of pairs of Chucks have been in the closet at times, but it has been rare. Lately, I've been more interested since the Addict project came out. Now, I have to say that these Matchpoints are worth a look. The navy blue is a nice clean color and the lining looks like it might be comfortable without socks a couple months down the road.

Joe McCoy Bandanas

—01. Available in two prints
—02. Blue paisley bandana.

Words

The Real McCoy's don't slack when it comes to accessories. Although their heavyweight sweatshirts and outerwear are arguably their best pieces, their bags, gloves, caps and bandanas are also great. We recently received these Joe McCoy bandanas featuring a red truck pattern and a blue paisley motif. The fast color cotton accessories are a nice touch and an easy item to pick up for $25.

Issue 03: Behind The Scenes

—01. Shooting A Lasting Impression.

Words

One of the trials of shooting editorials outside and out of season is that the weather and your surroundings can easily affect the integrity of the outcome. You don't always have the luxury of a perfect location, but that doesn't mean you can't be aware of what's around you and use light and background intelligently. James took this photograph while we were shooting A Lasting Impression for Issue 03. It gives you an idea of what we were up against, and hopefully how well our eventual story disguised the fact.

Sale Report: Present

01

Words

The sales are definitely on and in full force in most shops around the world. On one hand, I don't like to see it, and definitely not too early as it hurts the industry, the brands and the retailers. On the other hand, I am a consumer and it is great to get a good deal. Lots of shops have heavily discounted merchandise, but Present has some of the best items in decent size runs that I've seen. These are a couple of items I've been eying up this fall, but there are many more to be found.

Words

Engineered Garments' Spring-Summer '11 lookbook has just been added to their website. Built on a foundation of familiar classics, the collection is defined by its carefully chosen group of fabrics - pattern and texture playing a central role in the overall aesthetic. While it's only ever possible to highlight a fraction of the options available, EG do a great job with their lookbooks and this season is no exception. Follow the link below for a more detailed sense of things to come.

The Real McCoy's N-3 Utility Shirt

—01. Olive N-3 Utility Shirt.
—02. 80 count yarn.
—03. USN stamp.

Words

Talking about The Real McCoy's brand in the shop today, I realized part of the reason that I like the garments so much, which I hadn't really thought about before. While the artificial aging and breaking-in can look interesting, I think that the way The Real McCoy's produce their garments new, and as they were originally issued, it allows a much nicer natural feeling to the goods. While this shirt might not showcase the finest patina specifically, it is a nice looking shirt, and it just arrived at Superdenim.
