Mt. Rainier Design Spring Shorts

—01. Camouflage and 60/40 shorts.

Words

We just received another order from Mt. Rainier Design for the summer, this time taking a step away from their most known products - parkas. Using the same fabrics however, Mt. Rainier Design have produced two great pairs or shorts this season, the cotton camo herringbone fatigue style shorts, and the simple 60/40 climb shorts. Both have a great fit, feel very nice and are tough to find styles.

Preview: Inventory, Issue 04

—01. Looking over the first forms.
—02. Illustrated Examples, Makr and more...

Words

It feels like it's been a long time coming, or maybe it's just been a long month. Either way, Issue 04 is finally just around the corner. It will finish printing early this week and will be on the shelves only a week later. I'm extremely excited about our 4th installment, both for the beautiful photography and the great stories, but also because the stress levels can go back down a notch from being dangerously high, to moderately high – which is normal at least. If you haven't already seen the covers, they were previewed on Julien Strangler last week, have a look here.

Coming soon...

North Face Purple Label Waist Bag

—01. Only available in Japan.
—02. Navy with white polka dots.

Words

There isn't too much explaining need for why a bag like this is useful. Whether its over a shirt, or hidden under a jacket, its ideal for carrying around a notepad, camera, pens or whatever you might need. Especially while traveling I find a small 'waist bag' would be good to have. I probably wouldn't wear it around my waist however, so here's a helpful modeling shot.

MHL Typhoon Hat

—01. Navy cotton, water repellent.

Words

One of the best bucket/rain hats we've seen just arrived the other day. Apart of the MHL collection from Margaret Howell, this washed blue cotton hat has a great shape, and sits nicely on your head. It's broken down fabric allows it to look natural, while its repellent characteristics make it ideal in the sun or the rain.

Just Opened: Neighbour

—01. Neighbour SS11 long sleeve rugby crews.

Words

Over the weekend a friend of ours opened up a new shop in Gastown, Vancouver. The menswear shop is tucked away in a small courtyard, shared by Roden Gray and Haven, just a block from Inventory Stockroom. The space looks beautiful, open, clean and nicely put together. Saager, whom some folks might know from Unis, just opened his store with a soft launch, but there is still a handful of great products in stock. He's got a small selection from Mackintosh, Our Legacy and Outlier, along with bags from Drifter and an offering of Neighbour-branded rugby crew necks and ties - both made in the US. The shop is definitely worth stopping by, as there are also some small surprises to be found. It will be nice to watch Neighbour grow into it's first full season this fall.

Kent Combs

01

Images

—01. Folding comb.
—02. Wide tooth comb.

Words

For those of us who like to match our Vibram soles with neat hair cuts, you might need to get yourself a neat little comb. I kind of hate the classic black combs I'd been using, and brushes are often too big to maneuver a fine part. Maybe that's why I cut my hair off, but if I'd spotted these hand finished combs by Kent, perhaps I'd have a good use for one of these.

Available at Brook Farm General Store
