Shanana Mil US Army M-65 Mechanic Pants

01

Images

01. Embroidered deadstock M-65 pants.
02. 100% cotton.

Words

Of all the items I've seen riding the wave of modified army apparel, these pants are probably my favourite because the fit has not been modified by multiple reconfigured panels. Reserved for the cargo pockets, the primitive embroidery adds a welcome punch of colour to the cotton OD fabric, but otherwise these are a classic pair of deadstock military cargos and nothing more.

Chris John Dewitt in America

—01. The Cornwall Building, New York 1987.

Words

I recently came across an interesting collection of photos taken by Chris John Dewitt during his visits to America in the 1970s and '80s. He covers cities like New York and Los Angeles, but also everywhere in-between, in both black and white and colour. He includes notes and information with each image: telling us where it was taken and what has changed in the location since. It’s a fun read as well as a valuable resource.

Porter Yoshida Snack Pack Pouch

01

Images

01. Mesh front.
02. 2-way YKK zipper.

Words

Best used as an integrated organizing system, this small pouch, from the inimitable Porter Yoshida company, utilizes a unique and simple means of access, accomplished in one action – just like tearing open a bag of chips. The front side is also mesh, making it even easier to see where a particular item might be if you can’t remember.

Derek Wilson Ceramics at The Bureau

01

Images

01. Porcelain Pourer.
02. Terracotta Bowl.

Words

The Bureau, who perpetually offer some of the best products around, have commissioned a neighbour of theirs, potter Derek Wilson, to produce a limited run of ceramics. There are two porcelain beakers that would work perfectly in daily use, but it is this tapered terracotta bowl and olive coloured porcelain pourer that stood out. They're a little different, and they seem like the kind of items that everyone would have a use for, but might not have in their cupboard already.
