—01. Unis chairs No 9 & 10.

Words

Our friend Kyle at Sit and Read furniture has been working on a slight re-brand and re-launch for his website. It's finally up now and it features a handful of great looking chairs, shipables and other bits Kyle has come across. While the Steve McQueen reference bonanza has gone well out of control, the great hand framed shot of McQueen by David Winter is definitely my favorite item available.

—01. Yuketen, fall collection.

Words

We just got back from New York, after spending the week looking at Fall–Winter 2011 collections. The expected favorites didn't disappoint and there were even a couple of exciting new products. The trip was cold, but busy and productive. Already looking forward to next fall, especially now that we've got a very exciting line up of winter collaborations and new items on their way.

The Anatomy of Converse Addict

—01. Photographs by Saki Tagami.

Words

I definitely wasn't the first one to jump onto the Converse Addict range, but now that I have, I've been trying to track down a few more pairs before they are gone in certain models. The shoes do reach a somewhat shockingly high price point for one of the most classic and available styles in the world. But the folks at Hypebeast have taken a little deeper look inside the shoe. For me, the more comfortable Vibram sole, the soft leather lining and the upgraded choice of canvas make this classic all the better, particularly in the all white low model.

Mt. Rainier Design Wool Hip Pack

—01. Navy Melton wool fabric.

Words

We've only started to see Mt. Rainier Design's collections start to trickle into the western market, but this hip pack is one of my favorite bags they do. This one is from the fall offering, and in navy Melton wool, its a great winter accessory. The spring collection is really strong and we're already looking forward to a good dose of outwear and accessories in the same mountaineering vein.

Weekend Visions

—01. Taking it all in..
—02. Great colors amidst the natural greeens.


It feels like spring and summer are still a ways off and these images definitely make me want it to come faster. I love the sprawling landscapes with the little dots of bright color wondering around. They always remind of those epic summer treks out to Shoulder Island.

Comme des Garçons Wallets

—01. Made with fine cow hide.

Words

Surprisingly there still aren't that many great wallets out there. The one that seems to be carried by many shops, sold by many shops and used by a few people I know is by Comme des Garçons. Their classic half-zip version, among others, has been given a slight upgrade in leather this season. The brown and burgundy are definitely my favorites of the group.

Inventory Item 013: Barbarian Rugby Shirts

—01. Made in Canada.

Words

It's not too often that we are able to make products in Canada, but working with Barbarian is something we've been planning for awhile. The 100% heavyweight cotton shirts feature a white collar, a slimmed down fit and come in two colour options. The grey/ivory combination and the heather/navy both look great and the natural colors are perfect compliments for blues, reds and chambrays. Rugby shirts are often overdone, but we feel our version offers the authenticity and toughness of the traditional shirt while using soft tones, great fabric and a much nicer fit.

In Stock: Engineered Garments Workaday Totes

—01. Available in navy and natural canvas, $220.

Words

While I'm sad to be away from the shop during our first deliveries, I am pretty excited about carrying the Workaday collection this spring. One of the items I had been on the hunt for since I first saw it, was the canvas tote bag in natural. It's one of the best canvas bags I've come across and I really like the subtle details on the webbing, more so on the natural bag. They are pretty tough to come by, pretty much impossible outside of Japan and the Nepenthes store, so I was excited to see they arrived in the first few boxes from Engineered Garments this season.

Engineered Garments isn't sold online, so email us or call us anytime for more information.
