Porter Reef Waist Pack

01

Info

—01. Available in blue and red.

Words

After getting some good use out of my MEC waist pack, I am still keeping an eye out for something a bit more interesting. This pack is just about the same size, and provides the same function, but the two-tone blues with the hit of the Porter label and the leather pulls looks quite nice.

Fog Linen

—01. Table cloth.
—02. Cotton coaster.

Words

Fog Linen Works make some great household items. Along with their good choice of fabrics and clean design, they also produce some nice books, catalogs and a bit of clothing. Old Faithful have a couple of linen beach towels I've been thinking about picking up, but that would mean I'd have to find time to go to the beach.

Oi Polloi: Pica-Post No. 2

Images

—01. Cover.
—02. Interior spread.

Words

Oi Polloi have recently released their second edition of their shop/shopping guide for the season. The Pica-Post zine was really nicely done the first time around and looks much the same for No. 2. It's definitely worth snatching if you're spending money online or making your way through Manchester.

The North Face Purple Label Day Pack

01

Info

—01. FW11 version.

Words

There are a lot of back packs out there these days, especially in the Japanese market. Not just pure volume either, but a lot of good ones. The North Face Purple Label still alludes North American, so perhaps its the unavailability that makes this one even more appealing, but I really like the mix of colors and details on this fall day pack with a little bit extra California reference.

Restock: Deadstock Swedish Army Belts

01

Info

—01. Available in size 110 & 120.

Words

The Swedish Army belts have received a nice reception at our shop. We had a hard time finding another batch after selling our earlier this spring, but fortunately we managed to dig up a box in Germany in the last month. The current shipment is especially nice, all belts bare the thin numbers and single crown insignia, along with the extra loop on the belt.

Constructionally they adapted super-light cushion sole which helps transform the 6 inch boot into a more casual and wearable piece of footwear.

Woolrich Woolen Mills Fall Items

01

—01. Navy Cincinati jacket.
—02. Red Woody shirt.

Words

The first deliveries from Mark McNairy's first Woolen Mills collection are starting to arrive and I feel like people might be pleasantly surprised. There hasn't been the most positive response by the blog commenting community, but there are some very clean, nicely made, nice fitting pieces coming out. Oi Polloi have a handful of new pieces in stock now.
