01

01. Type 01, Midnight Blue.
02. Type 02, Cloudy Mint.

Words

Sun Buddies continue to build momentum after landing in some of the best independent retailers and collaborating with Dover Street Market this year. For fall, the brand has released a handful of playful new colourways to add a soft pop of colour at a time when outfits are often dominated by darker tones.

01. Check Shirt.
02. 4-Tone Jacket.

Words

Nassiance have become a regular on our blog and in Japanese publications but, surprisingly, the brand has yet to make it into any western retailers. The collection is a little bit more colourful this fall, with a mix of interesting outerwear pieces, simple shirting and unique accessories.

—01. Various flannels.

Words

The Rebuild by Needles collection continues to grow and this season it includes some really interesting outerwear. The shirts, however, have become a staple at our shop, and they're one of my favourite pieces from the brand. The 7 Cut Flannel comes in a variety of one-off options, now available online and at both of our stores.

01. Signed.
02. Tubes and tea bowl.

Words

These small stoneware pieces by Josh Herman feature a volcanic texture, muted tones, and come in a variety of sizes. The glazed ceramic tubes make for useful items around the house or office, but look just as good on their own.

Weekend Listening: Mercston – Back to 95 Part 2

01

Video

01. Track six of twelve.

Words

Although it seems unreal to say this, my obsession with Grime is now a decade old. I was going to mark the occasion by posting a Footsie instrumental tape from 2004, the year I discovered the genre, but last night I downloaded the newest installment of Mercston's Back to 95 series and thought I'd highlight that instead. While Mercston has never massively impressed me, with the exception of his garage-tinged, Ghetts-featuring single 'Good Old Days', it has become clear from listening to both parts of this series that he is definitely more comfortable rapping over the signature swung UK sound than he is rapping over the contemporary sound of Grime. Mercston won't come with one liners that will have you rewinding tunes, but his nostalgia-packed delivery flows beautifully over these timeless instrumentals, hijacked from artists like Roy Davis Jr. and Colours. This tape also has typically memorable appearances from Newham Generals' D Double E and Ruff Sqwad don Prince Rapid, making it well worth a click.

Nigel Cabourn WWI Roll Neck

01

Images

01. 3-gauge Donegal wool.
02. Made in Scotland.

Words

Nigel Cabourn is an acknowledged expert at taking the hardwearing details of military and naval wear and turning them into something timeless that will last long enough to be inherited by generations to come. This First World War-referencing sweater is a prime example, and while roll necks are not nearly as versatile as their crew and V-neck cousins, a substantial piece of knitwear like this is hard to beat when it comes to warmth and insulation.

Carl Auböck at OK

—01. Aorta Vase.

Words

At any given time there seem to be a few shops around the world holding a small cache of Carl Auböck-designed homewares. I always delight in stumbling upon new ones and seeing what they have compared to the others. The LA-based store, OK, has a few of the usual suspects on offer, as well as a few I haven’t really come across before. As the Austrian designer's recognition keeps growing year by year, there are bound to be more shops carrying his designs, but for now this stands as a fairly good selection.
