Post Overalls BDU Jacket

—01. Tan cotton twill.

Words

One of Post Overalls less popular pieces of outerwear is their BDU jacket. With a little bit more of a military feel, the jacket has simple pocketing, nice subtle details and a great casual fit. The SS12 BDU jackets were definitely some of our favorites, but Steven Alan was the only shop that I've spotted this spring's version.

Arc'teryx for Beams

—01. CIERZO18.
—02. Compact size, playful colors.

Words

Included in a slough of Beams collaborations is this great, playful backpack made by Arc'teryx. The 35th anniversary products have produced some outstanding items for the Japanese retail giant, but this multi-color and fabric bag is really appealing. The size is ideal for bike rides to work or short hikes on the weekend. While not the most subtle bag on the market, I've always liked the use of color in more technical items, be it bags or outerwear.

On Sale: Woolen Mills Upland Jacket

—01. Tan Burburry fabric.

Words

I probably shouldn't be pointing people to another web shop's online sale, as a retailer, but as a consumer I thought it was worth noting that this great jacket from Woolrich Woolen Mills is now on sale at Oi Polloi. It's still available in good sizes, and might be your last chance to pick up one of Daiki's best Woolen Mills pieces before they're gone forever.

Olive Clarks Desert Boots

—01. Olive suede.

Words

There isn't a whole lot of new developments with Clarks Desert boots, and that is just fine. I haven't seen these classic all-season shoes in this olive green before, and they look like a very nice alternative to the sand, wolf and cola, all of which are great. The olive is just another to add to the list.

Neighborhood Spotlight: Meat & Bread

01

Images

—01. Eat in or take out.
—02. Shop cards.
—03. 370 Cambie St., Vancouver.

Words

Meat & Bread is one of the best places to eat lunch in Gastown. There have been a number of new places opening up in the last couple years, but not many of really hit the mark. A simple menu, classic staples, enough variety and overall great quality has me going back time and time again. The bread, meat, atmosphere and value is all quite good, and even if you don't eat meat, they offer a great grilled cheese and nice salads and soups as well. On top of the food and service, the lunch spot has outfitted the shop beautifully and the branding done by Glasfurd & Walker is really well done.

Engineered Garments Duffle Backpack

—01. Backpack & duffle bag in one.

Words

Engineered Garments aren't necessarily known for their bags, but for years they have put out some great canvas carriers of different forms. This spring, the duffle backpack turned out pretty nice, especially in this military olive green. The bag is simple, but easy to throw around, pack up and carry wherever you need to. It's also now on sale at the Brooklyn retailer.
