Workers Chambray Shirts

01

Images

—01. Custom navy buttons.

Words

I'm not over chambray, maybe in excessive amounts and on garments that it shouldn't be on, but not a blue chambray shirt. There aren't a lot of versions that I like either, but these two from Workers in Japan look perfect. I've been quite biased towards white buttons in the past and I still wouldn't wear a chambray shirt with black buttons, but these custom engraved French blue buttons work perfectly. The fabric looks nicely washed and the pockets are well balanced too - it seems easy doesn't it?

Available from Workers

Inventory Edits

—01. Unseen Imagery from Volume 01 of Inventory Magazine.

Words

In the midst of putting together the new issue of the magazine, buying for the shop and working on several collaborations, we decided to produce our second publication – INVENTORY Edits. The large format newsprint supplement will be published once a year, after each volume of the magazine, and will highlight unseen imagery from the feature and focus sections. We have such great contributing photographers and such interesting subjects, that we decided this would be a good outlet to share some of the photographs that didn't make the magazine's pages. The first edition is currently on sale at Partners & Spade in New York, as well as our store in Vancouver and online; Dover Street Market and Self Edge LA will be receiving their copies very soon.

Reigning Champ Crew

01

Images

—01. Made in Canada.

Words

Sunday feels like the right day to be posting something like this. When it gets cool, it's just nice to have a couple of layers around to throw on whether you're at home, at the office or just running around town. Reigning Champ provides quality garments that are as comfortable as they come and with tones like this oatmeal, its tough to lose. There's a good chance I'll pick up one of these in the near future.

Preview: Inventory Item No. 012

01

Images

—01. Hand poured in Brooklyn, New York.

Words

We've been working on this collaboration for quite some time now and it's just about ready. It's a scented candle - our first non-wearable Inventory Item - and we're really pleased with the end product. We worked closely with Frederick Bouchardy at Joya in New York and thoroughly enjoyed the whole process. The scent, Fig, Sunwashed Oak & Amber, is quite intricate, but the smell is warm and subtle, filling the room nicely without being overpowering. The candles have been poured; we're just adding the finishing touches, but they'll be available in the next week or so, priced at $45.

Available soon at Inventory Stockroom, Partners & Spade and Dover Street Market

Neighborhood Hunger Shirt Jacket

01

Images

—01. Weather coated olive cotton.
—02. Detailed stitching and buttons.

Words

Neighborhood's Black Icon collection from this fall is one of my favourites in recent memory thanks to a number of more unassuming pieces like this one. The familiar military reference is there as usual but it's not over done with embroidery or printing. Rather, it's a faily simple 4 pocket shirt in a great shade of olive — an ideal colour for a fall layer. As usual, the details make it. Here they come in the form of the contrast stitching and buttons. It's just such an easy top to wear and with so many different things.

Nepenthes Braided Ring Belt

01

Images

—01. Available in brown and black.

Words

A braided ring belt has been on my mind for a little while but I couldn't recall ever actually seeing one, until today. It looks like Nepenthes has again answered the call and have done a nice version in brown leather with antiqued hardware. It's definitely a good looking belt and something I could see myself wearing pretty regularly.

In Stock: Mt. Rainier Design

Images

—01. 60/40 down parka.
—02. Reversible down vests and parka.

Words

We received the latest addition to the Stockroom last week. We're big fans of Crescent Down Works, Sierra Designs and the like, but after getting a look at Mt. Rainier Design, we were confident this brand was best in class in terms of styling, fabrication, design and finishing. The 60/40 fabrics are great and come in rich, beautiful colors. The reversible down vests are definitely stand outs, but the slant pocket parka with grey wool lining can't be overlooked. And for those in need of a bit more warmth, the down parka in tan with a green interior is very classic. We also picked up some of their Nordic leggings for some great functional variation.

Fall Again: Workaday Cords 

01

Images

—01. Burgundy.
—02. Tan.

Words

It's definitely getting into the heart of corduroy season as the colors of autumn fill the sidewalks and streets. Just in time for the season, The Bureau have received their fall shipment from Engineered Garments, including the Workaday collection. The cords come in five colors, but the olive, burgundy and tan are definitely my favorites. You can't go wrong with the straight leg, colors and details, but make sure you size up if you buy a pair online as they fit quite small.
