Sunset Cabin - Taylor Smyth Architects

—01. Fully insulated glass.
—02. Birch veener plywood.

Words

Located on Lake Simcoe, just outside Toronto, Canada, this one bedroom sleeping cabin juxtaposes itself among the vertical silhouette of the surrounding wilderness with three sides of horizontal cedar slats. With a sustainable planted green roof, its existence is as dynamic as its environment, visually blended into the landscape during the spring and summer months. While during the winter, covered in dense white snow, its design provides a complex integration between architecture and nature, constantly balancing shadows and sunlight. A private, calm retreat for those looking to escape the confines of the city.

Engineered Garments Workaday Pocket Tees

01

Info

—01. Available in white, grey & navy.

Words

The EG Workaday selection continues to be something of a rarity outside of Japan. The tightly knit offering includes a great set of staples that I wear quite regularly. The only new item this year is the pocket t-shirt with the overlap 'crossing' collar. Available in three colors, these t-shirts are made in Canada, fit small and are a nice addition to the Workaday line.

Champion at Nanamica

—01. The classic 'C'.
—02. School cardigan.

Words

There's something about that little red, white and blue 'C' that I love. As soon as I see it, especially above a cuff or on a sleeve, it somehow makes the garment that bit more special. I'm not sure why, but like any form of good branding it works and personal sentiment always overrides explanation; for me at least.

The latest Great British Hope, Andy Baddeley, recently answered a few questions for i-D Magazine about his daily preparations and training rituals. Baddeley backs both New Balance, and porridge, making him a pretty stand-up guy in my book. 100 Miles a week? Sure thing.

The Real McCoy's 12oz Grey Sweatshirt

01

Image

—01. The best sweatshirt in the world?

Words

You'll have a tough time finding a better plain grey sweatshirt than this one. Yes, it's more expensive than mass produced options; yes, there's other brands that make premium sweatshirts with similarly desirable details, but in my opinion, this one by The Real McCoy's is everything you need, or could ever want. In light of that, and with fall upon us - the perfect time for a garment like this - we've produced a limited run of these sweats with Superdenim. We have 40 each and they're available online and in-store now.

—Exclusively available at Inventory Stockroom and Superdenim

—01. Standard fit Campus BD.
—02. V-neck cardigan.

Words

Last summer when we ran into the guys from The Bureau they mentioned they were going to be releasing some products under their own brand. It only takes a quick look through their shop to realize it probably wasn't going to be bad. The initial release includes a variety of shirting in classic tones and fabrics, along with some simple knitwear. The house brand looks like its off to a nice start, and we're looking forward to what else might come.

Surplus

01

Info

—01. Paisley print.

Words

I'll be honest: I know nothing about the Hundred Things for sale on the Surplus website. I just discovered them, and as always I'm more than a little late to the party. From what I can gather though it appears to be a collection of one person's surplus belongings, which doesn't sound like all that much, but the selection, simple layout, and well considered photography make for quite a captivating catalog. There really is something for everyone here: from stationary enthusiasts to farmers in the making; although sadly almost all of the items have long since sold out. There are a few of the original 100 items still available, and if you scout around the rest of the site you'll also discover a selection of well designed printed materials that are in stock, and available for sale, should any take your fancy.
