Head Porter Plus Quilted Shirt

01

Images

—01. Subtle and warm.

Words

I recently rediscovered a similar shirt to this in my closet and it's been getting plenty of wear in the cold. It's heather grey though and it has left me coveting one in a darker colour. The unassuming cut makes it perfectly simple and the diamond stitched quilting gives it a nice bit texture. Whether under a coat or on its own as a light jacket, it would get plenty of wear from me now and in future.

Alden Ranger Moc

—01. Smooth tobacco Horween Chamois.
—02. Great Fall silhouette.

Words

Slush, ice and salt are wreaking havoc on many sidewalks right now which make this version of the Alden Ranger Moc particularly useful. The heavily oiled chamois leather coupled with the crepe plantation sole and waxed flat laces provide plenty of protection from the elements — on a shoe too, which is a nice option when a lot of the time boots might seem like the only choice. The darker tobacco colour looks great too, especially with denim or darker chinos I'd imagine.

I'm going to use these posts as a way to reference certain things I'm working on. They'll be a reflection of current inspirations - a visual extension of the magazine section with the same title. They will also be a little more suggestive than usual, but hopefully add something different to the overall mood of the blog.

Nomad has been one of Canada's best menswear shops since they opened their doors in Toronto a few years ago. Today, they are still leading the way in Toronto and have just opened their second location in the city. Now taking up space on Queen St., the menswear shop brings their strong aesthetic and nice mix of goods to another area of town. If you're stopping by Toronto, it's definitely worth making it to at least one of their shops. I once had a 7 hour layover in Toronto and took a cab to the store and back; I didn't leave disappointed, or empty handed.

Arc'teryx Veilance Showcase

01 02

Words

This may not be breaking news as the showcase and installation were taken down a while ago, but it's definitely still worth a look. Firmament and Arc'teryx Veilance joined forces this fall and came up with a pretty impressive way to launch the fall collection from Canada. The water floor with 'floating' tile pathway looks insane for the interior of a shop, and the product is presented in the best form I have seen. This collection is really impressive, especially once you try everything on and get some use out of it. There are not many shops or brands that would go to this extent and I think both parties did a great job.

Words

"What? I didn't know those were coming out?" That seems to be what I often exclaim when I see new Visvim products releasing, however it's more often than not in their F.I.L. locations. This time Surrender has brought in a couple of Visvim's more classic models; the Serra Hiker and the Keifer. Both models have been around for years and are offered this fall in some clean, sharp looking color options.
