—02. Red hickory stripe painter pants.

Words

A Bathing Ape have taken significant strides in the last year or two to further their reach and diversity, and one of the highlights has been the URSUS collection headed by Wtaps' Tet. Stripped down classics with subtle Bape references and nods to heritage items have been the foundation of each collection so far. Nothing changes for fall and the simple lookbook imagery highlights this throughout with standout items like the flannel shirting and painter pants.

Words

With an increasing number of stockists around the world, it's great to be able to visit some of the new shops that have embraced the magazine in-store. While in Florence we made time to visit the WP Store. The day after we arrived, Kenny Kusano from Beams had come into town to set up the Beams Plus FW10 window presentation. The timing was perfect for us and we were excited to see Inventory a part of the window. WP also had an extensive selection of Woolrich Woolen Mills as the company has licensed the brand around the world.

New Shoes

Words

Lately I've been trying to think up my perfect pair of shoes. Something I can wear nearly everyday, easily, without thinking about it. Something to go with denim, chinos or even shorts if the occasion should demand. I feel like I've been missing that old reliable friend in the shoe closet that I know I can count on everyday. For some its the desert boot, for some its a canvas sneaker, but I feel that I am currently missing that go-to shoe. I've been coming up with a few ideas that I feel fit my needs, which happen to be made by a certain American shoe maker. There are some details to still decide on, but hopefully it's not too far off.

Preview: Engineered Garments SS11

—01. Field Parka, Classic Shirt & Ghurka Short.
—02. Hand sewn leather soled boat shoes, Made in Maine.

Words

Just last week we were in Florence seeing some of our favorite collections. Engineered Garments was of course at the top of our list and again did not disappoint. In fact, it exceeded expectations on first viewing and we're quite excited about the spring collection to come. Daiki Suzuki used an interesting and intricate tonal embroidery as the starting point and balanced it with a very wearable military aesthetic and a nice variety of floral patterns. What might sound like his general formula was executed better than ever. To accompany the collection, a great offering of accessories and footwear will also be available. The leather soled boat shoes are sewn by hand in Maine, and the really nice woven leather belts are actually handmade by the lookbook model.

Sassafras Fall Leaf Shorts

—01. A great length for shorts.
—02. More than enough pocket room.
—03. Unpolished matte silver hardware.

Words

We've written about the greatness that is the Fall Leaf Pant before and their great details. And now they're back in the form of shorts. I'm a big fan of that original pant version with its great pocket configuration but it often goes unnoticed with a shirt over top of them and the rest of the pant leg. I think it might actually work a bit better as shorts though. That could very well be because it was hot out today and I love wearing shorts this time of year but it's also because you can't really go wrong with a great colour like them in the spring nor with the nice poplin like they're made with.

Our Legacy Linen Bomber

01

Details

—01. Paired nicely with a blue oxford shirt.

Words

"A refined bomber jacket with a heavy silver zip – easily worn as a light jacket in the spring. Here, in a blue crispy linen fabric, super nice contrast between style and fabric. The fabric is a 'perfect' thin canvas structure from Italy that has been already washed once."

—01. Daiki Suzuki's last collection for Woolen Mills.
—02. Presented in Milan, June 2010.

Words

In Daiki's last collection for the Italian licensed Woolrich Woolen Mills, he explores elements of classic mountaineering through certain fabrics and styles we've come to expect from the Japanese/American designer. At the same time, he also adds something new and interesting to each piece via the styling and the subtle details that reflect his own personal tastes. We have a while to wait before the collection arrives in stores, but the first look definitely offers something to look forward to.
