Words

These jeans from Burgus Plus, the house brand of near 60-year-old Japanese retailer Hinoya, stand out as a really special denim choice amongst the countless other options out there. The deerskin leather reinforcements on the back pockets are definitely a highlight, as are the relaxed fit, two-tone selvedge, and beautiful high-contrast fade that can be achieved over time.

Weekend Viewing: A Man Escaped

—01. François Leterrier as Lieutenant Fontaine.

Words

Robert Bresson is an unequivocal master of the art form. He is probably more admired and influential than he gets credit for, but those in the know definitely consider him in the same league as greats such as Kubrick, Kurosawa and Fellini. While those directors don’t hold back on style, Bresson favours a spare, more simplistic approach. The French filmmaker prefers themes on the human condition to speak for themselves, rather than grandiose set pieces and florid, impressionistic camerawork. A Man Escaped (1956) juxtaposes a methodical plan for a Nazi prison break with ruminations on incarceration and man's desire for freedom. The outcome is a tense, well-paced affair with the stakes rising as mounting death sentences are carried out around our protagonist, Lieutenant Fontaine, and doubt is ultimately cast on which inmates he can trust. If you have never seen a Bresson film and are looking for a jumping off point, this is a great place to start and it will surely leave you wanting to see the rest of his filmography.

Several continues to add new items to their online store each week. These include pieces from their own line as well as complimentary products from other brands. One the latest arrivals in the latter category is the Doek Oxford – available in navy and ecru options, and soon to be joined by the equally appealing Court model. Produced using a weaving technique that dates back to the Edo era, it's great to see these deceptively simple shoes starting to be offered outside of Japan.
