In Stock: Inventory Items Scented Candle

—01. Hand poured in Brooklyn, NY.

Words

After some anticipation, our candles are finally available online and also at Dover Street Market. Our first Inventory scent has been received very well. We couldn't be happier with the rich smell Inventory Item 012 has created in our shop, and we've already started working on a complimentary follow-up for next spring. Working with Joya has been very enjoyable so far, and hopefully you'll enjoy this product as much as we are.

Now available at Inventory Stockroom and Dover Street Market

Margaret Howell Fair Isle Socks

—01. Available in 3 colours.
—02. Close-up on wool blend.

Words

Fair Isle socks are always great come fall. While Ralph Lauren seems to have the rights to best version available, Margaret Howell has also made a couple of nice looking pairs this season. They come in three colours and use a nice wool blend, which keeps you warm and looks good - the ideal winter combination.

Beams Plus Tartan Scarves

—01. Available in grey and Black watch.
—02. Made in Scotland.

Words

Our second fall delivery from Beams Plus has arrived at our Vancouver shop, and it includes a couple of great pieces. There's a restock on the BD oxford shirts and bandanas, and we also received some Shetland wool sweaters and classic grey sweatshirts. These wool scarves however might be my favorite items. The wool feels amazing and the simple touch of having one plain side, and one plaid works perfectly. It's a tough choice between the Black watch plaid and the tonal grey. These warm, classic accessories are definitely useful in the winter, especially since the temperature seems to have just dropped significantly

Words

Our first collaboration with Inverallan last winter went really well, so it was an easy decision to keep things going again this season. The wait has been a long one, but the first shipment will be available by next weekend. The cable knit caps will be available first, with our new cardigan arriving shortly thereafter. The hats will be coming in five colours this fall - red, grey, oatmeal, olive and blue.

Available soon at Inventory Stockroom and Dover Street Market

Some Accessories

01

—01. Hand-sewn bandanas.

Words

Sure, you could maybe do this yourself after collecting some vintage bandanas and finding a seamstress to cut and sew them up for you, but will you? It would be much better to just purchase the finished article from Nepenthes NY. The unique accessories are simple in concept, but add a nice bit of texture and colour to an outfit.

Our friend Kyle Garner is getting ready to re-launch his new website for Sit and Read early next month. The anticipation has been growing, especially for a furniture website, shop and blog. Kyle's mix of vintage pieces and customized designs create an interesting variety of products. As a teaser, Kyle in partnership with Part & Parcel have put together a short film showing the making of one of the latest chairs in Kyle's on-going collaboration with Unis.

F.I.L.

—01. A balance between new and tradition.
—02. F.I.L., Kyoto.

Words

Visvim is without doubt one of the most amazing brands of our time. From the beautiful product to the branding to their unforgettable retail experience, the Japanese label has created something truly unique. Hiroki Nakamura really has an eye for detail far beyond the stitching in a shirt or the leather on his shoes. His vision for his brand is showcased beautifully in these photos of the Kyoto and Tokyo F.I.L. stores. The balance of new, vintage, rugged, slick and the general color palette is perfect. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't partially influenced by Visvim when we created our shop, and I'd also be lying if I said this sort of execution was easy.
