Rhodia Mouse Pad

Info

—01. Comes with 30 sheets.

Words

While in Japan I spotted this Rhodia mouse pad and couldn't resist the temptation of a semi-useful, nice looking piece of stationery. Their notepads are great, and easy to find, but I hadn't seen the mouse pad before. They have a sticky back so the traction is good on your desk, and they make for a convenient and functional notepad.

—02. Photo of illustrated cut-out.

Words

The Porter Classic Gallery is one of their three small spaces within the International Arcade which nestled beneath the train tracks of Tokyo's Ginza neighbourhood. The space is home to monthly installations curated by Leo Yoshida. Coming off of a great Military Pop themed show last month, December features a really nice exhibit called Kage which is a collaboration between illustrator Mimoe and photographer Yanojin. Mimoe's handmade cuttings of her whimsical illustrations have been further brought to life by macro photos by Yanojin. The result is some really nice photographs of small scale life scenes which will be on display until the 29th of December.

Corona at Extra

—01. Fadeless Jacket.
—02. Game Jacket.

Words

Almost impossible to find outside of Japan, Corona have been producing some great pieces for several seasons now. A relative hidden gem, the brand makes hunting and workwear inspired clothing that definitely deserves more attention this side of the North Pacific. Exceptional fits, and great fabric choices certainly make them worthy of consideration, and Extra in New York has recently received very limited sizes and quantities of the the Game Jacket in Harris Tweed. The price on these is unfortunately high, made in Japan and imported to the US with the current Yen Vs. Dollar exchange rate does not bode too well for those looking for a bargain, but for anyone with some money to burn they certainly come highly recommended.

Margaret Howell Cashmere Knit Caps

Info

Words

Margaret Howell's knitwear is often the highlight of the collection. While not the most impressive of pieces, the ribbed knit caps offer a nice break from many of the cable options on the market.

Look: Flight Blues

Info

—01. Nice and simple.

Words

There is a certain piece that stands out in this generally simple ensemble. While the simple combination of blues, classic straight leg chinos and a good pair of boots is always good, the A-2 flight jacket by The Real McCoy's is the kind of jacket that can make almost anybody look like a man.

The Travel Almanac, No. 2

Info

—01. An ideal holiday gift.

Words

There has been a fair bit of positive hype around the second release of The Travel Almanac. I finally had a chance to thumb through the latest issue and it looked rather nice. I probably should have picked it up on the spot, but I'll have to make my way back to Old Faithful to grab a copy before they're gone this week.

—01. Store Poster.
—02. Margaret Howell Plus - Sam Hecht.

Words

As anyone who has held a catalog, calendar, postcard or leaflet from the brand can attest; Margaret Howell produces not only some of the finest and understated clothes each season, but also an array of exceptionally well designed printed materials. A large part of this is down to the branding, identity and art direction provided by the London based design agency Studio Small, who work with Margaret on everything from the brands website and seasonal look books, to the exhibitions that are shown at many of her stores worldwide.
