Moncler Fair Isle Crew

—01. 100% virgin wool.

Words

I haven't highlighted Moncler too often but there are certain elements of the brand I have always been interested in. Personally, I would always steer clear of the shiny down jackets, but I wouldn't mind steering myself into this heavy crew neck knit. The red is not the most subtle color, but the pattern is simple enough to make the sweater work well come winter, especially layered under a jacket.

Look: From the Stockroom

01

Words

As more and more fall products continue to arrive at the Stockroom, I thought it would be nice to put together a look from the shop once in awhile. We plan on photographing somebody wearing these looks in the future, but haven't found a model just yet. In the meantime, this outfit is simple, comfortable and ideal for the fall. I did have to throw in some socks from J.Press to complete the look, but everything else is currently available from us.

Mark McNairy Painter Pants

—01. Navy cotton twill.
—02. Made in USA.

Words

Painter pants have seen a recent resurgence in popularity. Our stock of the EG version sold through very quickly and the demand seems to be continuing. Mark McNairy has been working with the style as well and with a slimmed down fit, his navy cotton twill offering are also a nice option this fall.

Visvim ISDT KNGR Boots

—01. Natural cork footbed.
—02. Custom Vibram Moreflex outsole.
—03. Premium kangaroo hide upper.

Words

I've been gawking at these boots for a while now. To me, most Visvim footwear will probably never be unappealing. Something about the re-appropriation of classic styles with premium materials like this unlined kangaroo hide, combined with innovative production and solid craftsmanship, always piques my interest. The rich brown is perfect and the low profile Moreflex sole means these could easily be that one pair of shoes that you can wear with anything, 5 days a week, without thinking twice about it.

Neighborhood Thermals

—01. Neighborhood Healthknit Thermals
—02. Black crewneck.
—03. Great button detailing.

Words

Neighborhood just recently found its way into a Canadian shop for the first time thanks to Haven. Last week they received their first shipment of the Fall/Winter BLACK ICON collection which contains a number of nice pieces. Some deep olive chinos and a down vest caught my eye but the pick of the lot for me is these Healthknit thermal shirts. The classic black crew neck version is just the right amount of plain, but the nice subtlety of the details in the pattern makes it stand out. On the other hand the off-white henley version is a really nice colour with some great looking buttons. Perhaps my favourite bit on both shirts is their awesome tags though.

Mark McNairy for Engineered Garments Long Wings

—01. Daiki pointing out the subtle leather contrast.

Words

Daiki Suzuki and Mark McNairy are no strangers to creating classic menswear with subtle twists and that's just what they did with these long wings. They feature mismatched sections of pebbled full grain leather and smooth calf skin - an almost trademark Nepenthes detail. I'm a big fan of long wings and both designers, so the result is unsurprisingly one of the better new footwear options available this season.

Saint James Matelot

01

—01. Stripes, stripes and more stripes this fall.

Words

"Made in France with 100% wool. This sweater is one of the original styles from Saint James. It fits close to the body to prevent cold drafts and winds from getting to the skin. It is this original fit that has kept french fishermen warm in the cold open seas of Northern France."

Nepenthes Melange Socks

01

—01. Salt and pepper, and purple.
—02. Made in Japan.

Words

Nepenthes do a lot of things right, at least in my opinion. One of the constants is their melange socks which they seem to do all year round. Fortunately with the opening of the Nepenthes store in New York this fall, they might actually be easy to purchase in the near future.

&mdashUntil then...
