Weekend Listening: Beat Konducta, Vol. 6

—01. Madlib, the Beat Konducta.

Words

Lately I've been listening to Madlib pretty much non-stop. For some reason when I get hooked on an artist, it usually lasts a few weeks at a time, but certain things just stick even longer. Anyways, his Beat Konducta series are classic, and if you're not familiar with the tracks, you'd probably recognize a few sounds along the way.

Freeman's Sporting Club Spring Items

01

Images

Spring pieces from FSC, made in New York.

Words

—01. Inspired by classic machinist shirts with buttons on elbow and sleeve tabs. 100% limited edition, pure indigo dyed Japanese cotton. Pre-washed for softness, we recommend machine wash cold and hang to dry.
—02. During WWII, Churchill had the British military develop a 100% cotton waterproof fabric to be used as firehoses because rubber was on ration. Known as Ventile, it's water-resistance made Ventile ideal for use in immersion flight suits for the RAF pilots who were getting shot down over the channel. Unlike synthetic fabrics such as Gore-Tex, our Spring Ventile Parka produces almost no noise when in use and, because it is 100% natural, it remains breathable while protecting against wind & rain.

Nike Gyakusou Project

—01. Jacket detail.

Words

The popularity and interest in running gear lately has of course been lead by Nike. Whether it's through their onslaught of new Lunar and Free footwear, or via Japan and the Gyakusou project, the movement is undeniable. I have always been a big fan of Nike, whether its trainers or sneakers or football kits, but the recent wears that Nike have been making are especially nice. As somebody who tries to be active, it's absolutely functional, looks great, fits well and performs. Naturally being a bit product obsessive, the Gyakusou project is really appealing, hardly available and well packaged.

Filson Canvas Cruiser Jacket

—01. Made in USA.

Words

"The Cruiser Jacket is perhaps the most iconic Filson style, which has shaped all other workwear jackets since it's release nearly 100 years ago. A tough, durable jacket constructed from heavyweight canvas, with a depth of utility features."

The Jacket just plain looks great. If you want an authentic hunting style jacket, made in the USA, you don't need to look much further than Seattle based Filson.

Epperson Mountaineering make some of the nicest, most classic bags in the USA. The quality and durability of the Cordura is some of the best, and it has a beautiful rugged aesthetic. The company was started in the 70s by mountaineer, Mark Epperson, and this spring the brand has made a pack of three bags especially for Inventory. The bags feature hand picked hardware, a custom color combination and a couple small changes to meet our preference. The bags are limited to 24 pieces per style.

Head Porter Plus Chinos

—01. Tan.
—02. Black.

Words

Head Porter Plus' classic two-tone chinos are back for the spring. I prefer the khaki color as the contrast is a bit nicer and I don't usually wear black pants. The fabric is always great with HPP pants, and the subtle technical details are well executed.

Adam Kimmel For Supreme

—01. Twill cotton suits in navy & black.

Words

The spring collaboration between Adam Kimmel and Supreme has been hyped up enough, but I think the product does deserve a good look. With simple detailing, nice fabrics and a good fit, the two companies have put out a nice product. Especially the navy cotton twill suit, which works nice separately, would prove to be a great piece to have. Read the interviews below, and you can also catch the Adam Kimmel jacket in the spring Supreme editorial in our latest issue of Inventory.
