Front Lines

01

Details

—01. "Front Lines, inspired by Capa's indelible scenes from the first 'media war', reminds us that the camaraderie of men drawn by a sense of duty to an imperfect moral calling can reveal fleeting moments of disarming grace bound by unspeakable tragedy."

Words

The photographs were originally shot for the CONTACT photography festival in Toronto but our own Chris Allen decided to take the opportunity to print a selection of the images in the first publication from Ikigai Editions. The news print release is 36 pages long, has 3 different cover options and was printed in Canada. The photographs were shot by Brendan Meadows, Simon Willms and George Moreira, and the styling and vintage archive came courtesy of Matt Robinson, owner of Klaxon Howl in Toronto. To accompany the project, Darrin Klimek also produced a short film offering a behind-the-scenes look at casual life behind the front lines of battle. Overall, the project was beautifully executed from the photos to the film to the first offering from Ikigai Editions, and we are very pleased to be offering the publication in our shop.

Sassafras Bulb Seed Shirts

01

—01. Stripe version.
—02. Orange plaid.

Words

The spring collection from Sassafras continues to impress and it might even be one of my favorite brands this season. The quality, fabrics, branding and design all fit so perfectly together. The gardening reference again comes into play with the recent release at Utility Coop of the 'Bulb Seed' shirt. With handy side pockets and a nice plaid or stripe to choose from, Sassafras produce another winner.

Summer Ties

01

Words

There seem to be enough weddings and parties going on lately to warrant the purchase of a couple lightweight summer ties. I find the fall season is much nicer with tweeds and wools when it comes to neckwear, but this spring produced a few that actually make me want to dress up more often. Gitman Vintage, Engineered Garments and Alexander Olch are the usual suspects for their shape, fabric choice and colour palettes.

Want: 45rpm Organic Gauze Shirt

01

Images

—01. 7 buttons, 1 pocket.
—02. Made in Japan.
—03. Large tonal plaid lining.

Words

After receiving the SS10 Preivew lookbook by 45rpm in the mail, I was compelled to check out their modest online offering again. There was a shirt a couple seasons ago that I missed out on that was a patchwork red gingham, and I still think about it to this day - now I am thinking about this one. The cotton looks so soft, so comfortable and so perfect for summer. The colour, the pattern and styling are all just right, as usual from 45rpm.

Hypebeast Feature: The Gastown Culmination 

01

Details

—01. Right to left: Simon, Owen and myself.

Words

Over the last five or six years there has been one definitive name in our blogosphere, Hypebeast. I would be surprised if anybody who reads this website hasn't visited before. I'd also be surprised if every blogger out there wasn't influenced by the website in one way or another. Over the last couple of years Hypebeast has cemented its place at the top even further by refining their layout, execution, video and series of features. Recently we were fortunate enough to be featured by Hypebeast in relation to our new space, the development of the magazine and the direction of our brand.
