Mark McNairy for Engineered Garments Long Wings

01

—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. 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.

Preview: Arc'teryx Veilance

01

Images

—01. The Align and Insulated Shell Jackets in black.

Words

Arc'teryx has done so much to push the boundaries of garment construction in the last couple of decades, and the Veilance collection represents another giant stride forwards. It combines all their knowledge and history with a desire to explore technical tailoring and functionality through a more minimal aesthetic. It's a brand we're really looking forward to this fall, particularly as we spend so much of our time between London, Vancouver and New York. Honeyee recently previewed two new styles, and I'm a big fan of the Align - especially in blue - which will be arriving in the Stockroom next month.

Northwest Summer

01

—01. A tidy campsite.

Words

And then there is the reason for not wanting to wear fall clothing... The Northwest can be a very beautiful place, especially when seen through the lens of a talented photographer. These shots definitely capture some of the beauty of summer in Vancouver and the surrounding Northwest. They also make me a little jealous after spending the majority of my summer indoors in front of a computer. Jennilee is one of the creators of 01 magazine, an online publication from Vancouver.

In Stock: Engineered Garments CPO Shirts

01

—01. CPO shirt in black wool.

Words

For some reason I was especially excited for the CPO shirts by Engineered Garments this fall. They are easy to wear over a t-shirt, thermal or another shirt, and the weight and cut are perfect. As usual Daiki hasn't over designed anything either and simple touches like the tonal paisley lining and considered fabrics make it much better than other options out there. Black and navy are also the ideal colors for a CPO shirt. I've already tried to wear mine once on a rare cool evening, but realistically it will have to wait another month before being put into heavy rotation.

Deck Towels

—01. A selection of deck towels, $75 each.

Words

With fall collections beginning to hit the stores, it's starting to feel like summer is nearing an end. Local temperatures, however, aren't really cooling down. If you still have a couple of weeks, or even months, left on your yacht, then you should definitely have a nice looking deck towel on board. Partners & Spade recently found some great options.

Ts(s) Navy Military Pants

01

—01. 100% cotton, made in Japan.
—02. Cotton twill herringbone.

Words

Fatigues or military pants are one of my favorites when it comes to casual trousers. Lately I've been really liking herringbone twill fabrics too, so that makes the combination on these ts(s) pants very appealing. The fit is also quite trimmed down from what you might find on an EG or vintage version. That would definitely be a bonus for some, and something I'm not opposed to either.
