Apartamento #05

—01. This spring issue features a nicely curated travel section, including '24 Hour Vancouver'.

Words

Apartamento’s fifth and most recent issue has just begun hitting select retailers around the world and I’m proud to finally make the magazine available in our Stockroom. As ‘an everyday interiors magazine’, Apartamento again delivers a solid selection of short stories, interviews and a newly added travel supplement titled, ‘binocolo’. It’s more rich photography, interesting people and great looking interiors. We not only have the latest issue, but a fair stock of issue 04 as well.

Words

It’s been a long and challenging road to go from the first magazine with no expectations and no distribution to publishing our second issue. Now having it on the shelves of some of our favorite stores around the world in a timely matter is the next step as we await for our shipment of 8,000 magazines coming back from the printer. Earlier this week we looked over the last of the proofs with much excitement. We can’t wait to get the new issue into our hands, your hands and onto the racks. It’s now available for pre-order in the Stockroom – both covers. We are anticipating shipping to commence on May 15th, and we’ll publish a comprehensive list of our stockists shortly after.

In My Bag

Items

Wm. J. Mills & Co. tote, Louis Vuitton Passport holder, Canon F1 35mm, Woolrich shorts, The Real McCoy's army hat, Ray Ban Clubmasters, Saint James socks, Papermate pens, Apartamento, HUGE, Moleskin, Muji card holder (with cards inside), iPod, Blackberry & Malin+Goetz moisturizer.

Words

Bringing back the ‘In my Bag’ post once more, we recently shot some articles for our spring issue and each of us took photos of our ‘bags’. Some things are in there every day and somethings aren’t, but most of them are mine and get used regularly. The whole concept of the bag posts was to offer insight into people’s personal tastes and how the things they find important or at least aesthetically pleasing. There probably aren’t many surprises in my bag other than maybe my passport holder and the lack of something by Engineered Garments, but each thing serves its purpose and looks fairly nice, especially those Papermate pens.

In Stock: The Real McCoy's

—01. A finely edited selection of McCoy's goods.

Words

One of our most exciting additions to the Inventory Stockroom this spring is The Real McCoy’s. Arguably the best reproduction brand in the world, McCoy’s offers a diverse range of products through The Real McCoy’s, Joe McCoy’s, Buco and the other licences the company now holds. Producing iconic American garments is the end product, but the brand itself is very special and there is a lot of love, research and history involved in creating each piece. The brand was fortunate enough to let us dig into their archives for some of our favorite pieces before they are gone forever. As well we picked up a few of the season’s staples and are happy to offer some of the best knits, accessories, work shirts and chinos the market has to offer. We often describe the McCoy’s has being “bomb proof” due to its incredible make and quality. The choice of fabrics and construction are some of the best we’ve ever seen. We’ve included a few images of the items that we picked for the spring season, all of which are now available online.

Supreme Book

01

—01. Now available at Supreme, $68.

Words

As soon as I read about this book coming out it became a must have. There aren’t many brands that have shaped our culture and market place like Supreme. Even growing up out on the West Coast of Canada, Supreme always had a legendary feel and aspect through the bits that could be found at twentyfour or Richard Kidd. Then being able to visit NY, LA and Tokyo in recent years – it was always high on the list. The brand is unique in many ways but the foundation of New York set the tone and allowed the boiling pot to bring influence from all over and channel them into something special. Rather than take photos of all of the pages, I would recommend picking up a copy for yourself.

Words

The Makr brand has been continuing to impress us with the new products; working with Horween and a couple new tote bags are just a couple of the reasons. Besides the products Jason Gregory, the man behind the brand, has been publishing a blog on the brand’s website. Sometimes it’s directly related to new products, design or manufacturing, but lots of the time it’s simply inspiring images and nice photography. Recently he posted some behind the scenes images which are worth a look. The photography is beautiful and the overall curation of the blog is quite nice and one for the RSS.

Plain & Simple: Supreme Oxfords

—01. Red oxford.
—02. Yellow oxford.
—03. Blue oxford.

Words

While Supreme’s collection has been in full swing through their own shops and their stall at Dover Street Market, some of the overseas shops like The Glade have just received and posted some images of their edited buys. I suppose it might also be due to the fact that not every shop is able to post images online. That said, some of the best things Supreme make are their most simple, iconic and classic. Camp caps, baseball jackets, chinos and BD shirts are always among my favorites. If you weren’t into the trimly cut Thom Browne collaborations, the standard Supreme oxfords come in a nice selection of colors including a great looking red. The silhouette is nice, the collars are a good size if you don’t need to sport any neck-wear and the detailing is well considered.

Coming Soon: INVENTORY 02 Spring–Summer 2010

—01. Both covers will be available next week.

Words

It’s been a very compact and exciting spring so far this year as we have new developments in all aspects of Inventory, but our main focus has been the production of our second issue of the magazine. Finally our Spring–Summer 2010 issue is going to the printers and we are excited to present the two covers for the upcoming offering. We feel the new issue not only met the standard of our initial launch but perhaps exceeded it with a more diverse range of content, some great new contributors and an additional 30 pages. Featured in our spring issue are Margaret Howell, The Real McCoy’s, Beams, White Mountaineering, Our Legacy, Wm. J. Mills & Co., Unis, New Balance and several other fascinating people, brands and stories. The issue will be available to pre-order through the Inventory Stockroom next week and will be shipping and hitting shelves in early/mid-May.
