Woolrich Woolen Mills Omama Jacket

01

Info

—01. Available in olive & blue.

Words

Another version of the Harrington jacket never hurt anybody, especially when it comes in nice shades of blue and olive. The relocation of the pocket to the chest is an interesting but subtle touch, and the straight cut bottom is a much better option than having the waist band.

Available at Second Stage

Band of Outsiders Spring '12

—01. Featuring Ed Ruscha.
—02. Light weights and colors.

Words

Band of Outsiders latest collection features much of what we've become used to, a classic mix of causal shirting and light weight jackets mixed with suiting and accessories. The Polaroid aesthetic has always appealed to me, especially for a spring campaign. Instead of the usual silver screen talent, Band has opted for painter Ed Ruscha to model their current collection.

Bal x Wild Things - Tweed PrimaLoft Vest

01

Images

—01. Reversible.
—02. Original Leopard Pattern.

Words

Bal is a somewhat newer brand on the radar for me but one that has some great products for this upcoming season. The PrimaLoft makes this piece perfect for layering as it isn't too thick or too heavily insulated. Leopard print isn't for everybody, although I think it's subtle enough that it works well as a vest in this case, but if you're not into it, reverse it.

South 2 West 8 Deer Camo Products

01

Info

—01. Spring camouflage.

Words

Fall and winter are usually the seasons for solids, but once the sun is shining a little brighter, and staying up a little longer, it seems more people are willing to wear a printed piece or two. In recent seasons a lot of brands have offered something interesting print-wise in the short department, but South 2 West 8 have decided that this spring it's time to go deer camo crazy. This great pattern features on everything from shirts and jackets, to scarves and hats in the new Spring collection, so there should be an option for almost anybody that's a fan of this unique looking camouflage.

Visvim 101 Corduroy Jacket

01

Info

—01. Available in brown & blue.

Words

These corduroy jackets keep pretty close to the original inspiration, while still updating the fabrics, fit and small details subtly. This is a nice example of why I first fell in love with the brand. Visvim's simplified contemporary versions of classic Americana items are always among my favorites.

Midori Stationery

01

Info

—01. A January recommendation from Fantastic Man.

Words

I was reminded about this Japanese stationery brand twice recently. Firstly back in January Fantastic Man wrote a daily recommendation that sounded eerily familiar (thanks to the 6 man, hour long examination of the store we undertook in November): "We must have been doing something wrong during a recent visit to Japan, because unlike what we’d expected, we weren’t particularly successful in finding fabulous examples of the famed Japanese designer stationery and desk accessories. (The department store TOKYU HANDS is big, but not a great treasure source – where should we have gone instead?) Luckily, others are doing the search-and-select process for us, such as Amsterdam-based mail-order store Miscellaneous. Among lots of great objects are these attractive numbered brass paper clips. Much nicer than the common Post-It or the folded corner of a page." The paperclips are the work of the excellent Midori stationery company, and you can add Present to the list of the brands stockists should the above, and below, appeal to you. Present have themselves just received a reorder of the fantastic stationery, which was actually the second of the two recent reminders I mentioned earlier.
