Editor's Pick: Porter for Monocle Boston Bag

01

Info

—01. Comes with a variety of small, useful bags.

Words

I purchased this Boston bag a little over two years ago, and I think it's been with me on every trip since. The size is perfect to carry on, it's big enough for almost a week's worth of clothes, with some edited packing, and it comes with a nice variety of useful small bags inside. It's easy enough to carry, and considering how much I've used it, it doesn't look more than a month or two old, which bodes well for the long run.

Gitman Vintage Bow Ties

01

Info

—01. A variety of great summer fabrics.

Words

Outside of their shirting, Gitman Vintage has built up a nice little range of ties, bow ties and shorts. I think the best of their accessories come in the summer, with the use of light weight, high quality shirting fabrics. These gingham and plaid fabrics are perfect for a nice hit of color and pattern to compliment the whites, blues, khakis and seersuckers during the summer.

The Real McCoy's Summer Hats

01

Info

—01. Utility Hat & A-3 Cap.

Words

We recently received a small shipment of summer items from The Real McCoy's in Vancouver. Along with a re-stock of Champion x McCoy's tees, Blue Seal chinos and painter shorts, we received some great summer head wear. I had been looking forward to the hats for months, and I wasn't disappointed when they arrived last week (except for the fact my head is too small to fit them).

Lucky John x Free & Easy Belt

01

Images

—01. Buttery calf skin.
—02. Single ring.
—03. Double ring.

Words

One of Free & Easy's collaborations this spring that I really like is this Lucky John leather belt. The high quality calfskin leather and Concho brass ring definitely give the belt a Native American inspired feel that looks great. The belt comes in two styles, single ring and double ring.

Engineered Garments FW11 Lookbook

01

Info

—01. Should start to deliver in mid-August.

Words

The Engineered Garments FW11 has just recently made its way online, and around the internet in no time. It's one of my favorite look books from the New York based brand, with great timing, the art work in the Nepenthes NY store turned out to be a great back drop for the colors in the collection. With lots of wools, a bit of floral, some new styles and some classics - it is a very strong fall collection, coming soon. There are even several styles not even featured in these images that were some of our favorites of the offering as well, so keep an eye out for a couple new pieces of outerwear from Daiki this fall.

The North Face Purple Label Bush Hat

01

Images

—01. Availalble in navy and khaki.
—02. Wind proof lining.
—03. Draw string neck strap.

Words

The North Face Purple label does need to come out west, hopefully sooner than later. The accessories, fabrics, prints and patterns are incredible and although this bucket cap is one of the more sublte pieces, its a good example of the brands ability. Lined on the inside, made with slubby cotton and featuring a classic mountaineering strip around the cap, it looks great, seems to fit well and would be nice to have weather in the heat of the city or trekking out to the lake.

Wtaps Incense Holder

01

Info

—01. Made in collaboration with Kuumba.

Words

I think I've already added this to my basket three times, but have yet to buy it. I really like some of the smaller lifestyle 'accessories' made by brands like Supreme and Wtaps. This incense holder in particular looks great with its military styling, olive green tone and classic Wtaps branding.
