Our Legacy, Observations

01

—01. Spring-Summer 2011, Observations.

Words

The collections from Our Legacy continue to improve in pretty much every aspect each season. The fabric choices, the cuts, the fabric washes, etc, it goes on. The brand has developed great core pieces like their 40s BD shirt, the 'great' sweatshirt and their chinos - they've all become standard staples. This spring, I feel like the collection is as solid as ever, but their seasonal 'look book' is really what caught my eye. I think the tones and washed out whites combined with the rich blues and greens look especially great. They always do a fine job getting me excited about their brand.

—01. Made by Buzz Rickson.
—02. Khaki twill cotton.

Words

I like a wide leg chino and I love a cinch back, so no surprise I like these pants. They actually came out a few months ago, but have been re-released on the Beams x Fennica shop, and are also carried at kapok. I really like the cut of the pants, along with the simple officer style button fly, pockets and cinch back. You really can't go too wrong with these.

Available at Kapok and Fennica

Always Want: Visvim Virgil

—01. Visvim Virgil in sand suede.

Words

Maybe because the spring tones are filling up our shop and our website, the look of these sand suede Virgils just popped out to me again. The Virgils are such a great boot, and I am fortunate enough to have one pair, however, I would gladly trade them for a suede since my are a smooth leather. The light color of these works perfect with these light weight boots, as you can wear them through the spring, summer and fall with ease. Unfortunately the price increases put them beyond reach now, so acquiring a pair feels unlikely to happen any time soon.

Woolrich Woolen Mills Spring Items

—01. Pieces from Daiki's last Woolen Mills collection.

Words

WP Lavori has created something special with Woolrich Woolen Mills. With the change in designers that is in transition right now, it's giving a very traditional brand and product a refreshingly interesting concept, while not taking away from the wear-ability and classic sense of the brand. Daiki Suzuki is one of my favorite designers right now, and although it will be somewhat too bad to see him leave Woolen Mills behind, it will create a renewed interest in both his own brand, and the Woolen Mills collection. Before we have to worry about seasons without Upland shirts, we have one more season from Daiki, which I think looks quite promising. The light colors and good patterns make for a playful, wearable offering, however its still the basics that I'll be stocking up on.

Carhartt Ripstop Digger Coat

—01. Digger Coat.
—02. Olive ripstop cotton.

Words

Carhartt's casual range has been steadily improving over the last few seasons, but its hard to get too far away from their classic models. The Digger coat takes on a lighter weight ripstop cotton this spring which looks really nice to me. The mustard of the logo and timeless work coat style works nicely with this fabric and it creates an easy to wear garment.
