Alden for The Bureau Snuff Suede Moc Toe

01

Image

—01. Hand made in USA.

Words

In the land of fine footwear collaborations between Alden, Tricker's et al, there isn't a lot left out there to do. Subtly is the key, as it is easy to get carried away with wild combinations that will be out of date by the end of the season. The Bureau have ventured to come up with their own trademark moc toe shoe. The result is a classy, casual, nice looking shoe made by Alden.

Polka dots and camouflage are not particularly hard to find patterns this season, but that doesn't mean you should ignore them. Both are still among my favorites.

Roger Ackling at Ingleby Gallery

—01. Installation view.
—02. Voewood, sunlight on wood.

Words

I was introduced to both this exhibition and artist by friend of Inventory Christophe Docherty, who is one half of the excellent Lawson Books imprint out of Edinburgh. The work of Roger Ackling is both striking and simplistic, and for the last 35 years the artist has produced all of his work using the same method: focussing sunlight through a handheld magnifying glass to burn and mark discarded pieces of wood and scraps of card. As the gallery website puts it best: "The resulting works have a weight and strength and sombre stillness which belies their often small scale and everyday origins. They have the power to transform the environment that they inhabit: making quiet interventions that subtly alter the space around them. Ackling’s work urges a renewed awareness of the small, the silent, the marginal, the overlooked."

MHL Packable Rain Hat

01

Image

—01. Available in Yellow & Navy.

Words

Margaret Howell's spring collection includes some beautiful knitwear and shirting, as usual, but the MHL accessories are often the unsung hero. The packable rain hat this spring is made from 80% cotton and 20% PU, making it lightweight, functional and it also happens to stow away rather easily when needed.

Ten C Olive Field Jacket

01

—01. The reinterpretation of a classic.
—02. Made in Italy.

Words

The fine folks over at The Bureau have just received a small reorder of Ten C product, and the standout for me is this Olive Field Jacket. The design is extremely close to the original 1960's US Army version, and the improvements are subtle but welcome: a breathable but water resistant custom made fabric, and a few small tweaks in fit and detail. If you don't already have something like this in your wardrobe, this might be the only garment of its kind that you'll ever need.
