Post Overalls Tote Bags

—01. Made in New Jersey.
—02. Cotton fabrics, olive webbing.

Words

I have a bag problem, and I have addmitted it before. I just love the use of different fabrics, and the simplicity and functionality of tote bags especially. Recently I snagged one of these small Post Overalls tote bags in New York when we met with Takeshi and Katsu. The fabrics are tough but have a light, all season feeling to them. The olive webbing is a nice touch. The size isn't my favorite, but I really like the styling and finishing.

Junya Watanabe Duck/Hide Jacket

—01. Made in Japan.

Words

Junya Watanabe MAN has started hitting non-CDG retailers and has become notably more visible this season. End has received their order and have just put this work wear styled jacket online. Some might think that Junya takes the reference too far and makes it unwearable, but in this case I think it's been reeled in just enough. The colors of the cotton canvas, flannel and leather combine to create an amazing autumnal palette. The fabrics work together nicely and I think the end result is a pretty fine garment.

—02. Waterproof leather.
—03. Yuketen for Inventory Items heel stamp.
—04. Deadstock tiger camo cotton shoe bag.
—05. Vibram sole.
—06. 30 pairs made.

Words

In the last year we've worked on a handful of collaborations that have all been interesting and exciting, but one of the companies we've really come to love and respect is Yuketen. It's been great to work with Yuki and Ryan, and also get to know them on a personal level, so creating a custom shoe together has been an incredible honor. Yuketen don't sell their products to many retailers, let alone do collaborative projects, so it's a very special one for us. Playing with one of their classic models, the Maine Guide Boot, we decided to bring back its unknown and basically unseen shorter brother, the Maine Guide Shoe. Using a waterproof leather, adjusting the height and taking off the heel loop, we came up with our perfect fall moccasin. They're sturdy and tough, but the leather is soft and functional. They are one of the best shoes I've ever owned and I couldn't be more excited about how they came out - thanks to Yuki, Ryan and the whole Meg Company team.

Issued: September 20th, 2010

Heller's Cafe x Warehouse Canoe Pack

—01. Based on a 1930s canoe pack.

Words

The canoe pack has definitely become more popular again thanks to companies like Duluth and Frost River continuing to produce their classics, and modern brands recognising the authenticity and functionality of their designs. This fall Heller's Cafe have produced a beautiful rendition that's been made in Japan by Warehouse. The bag is made from a selvedge canvas and features some top quality leather accents and metal hardware.

Exclusively available at J.Crew

Pick Ups

—01. Supreme Book, Vol. 1.
—02. Take Ivy, 2010.

Words

I haven't posted many of the items I've picking up for a while now, mostly because they are almost all from our own store. Recently however I got a couple of books that I'm pretty excited about. It took me a little while to track down the first Supreme Book, but I'm glad I did. Published in 2005, the first edition features the same format as the rest, but has some great photography and nicely catalogs the old releases. I also picked up the re-published Take Ivy. It's so cheap and I'm sure everybody will have it, but that doesn't mean it's not good. I'm still fairly determined to get an original copy someday, but that day isn't today, so this is perfect for now.

White Mountaineering Luggage Jacket

—01. Gore-Tex Performance Shell lining.

Words

White Mountaineering is a brand we should expect to see more of in the near future as their western world distribution has opened up this fall. One of the first shops to receive some of the fall collection is The Glade in Germany. The Luggage Jacket features a Gore-Tex shell lining, branded taped seams and an interesting expandable hood. It has more than enough storage too. The front features multiple pockets, not to mention a couple on the interior, meaning you can leave your bag at home and fill up your jacket instead.

Available at The Glade

Before The Wilds

—01. S.C.P., Ed. Varie & Tinker Street*.
—02. Nicholas Haggard.

Words

Before The Wilds is a group show collaboration between S.C.P., Ed. Varie and Tinker Street* featuring the work of Ye Rin Mok, Nicholas Haggard, Peter Sutherland, Ben Pier, Matty Sidle, Estelle Hanania and Thobias Fäldt. This is one of those things that makes you wish you were in a particular city at a particular time. I first heard about it during the early planning stages and was in New York over the summer as it began to take shape. Sadly though, on the day of the opening, I couldn't be further away. The show runs until September 30th, but if you're in New York I definitely recommend going along this evening. An unbound catalogue with letterpress cover and insert print will be on sale, alongside a complete set of 7 letterpress prints, and a box set of t-shirts featuring the work of each artist and 7 hand numbered, signed prints. These items have been produced in very small quantities and are unlikely to be around for long.

Opening tonight: Ed. Varie, 208 E. 7th St., NY. 6-9pm.
