Last Few Months

—01. Michelle Ford's camera, Monitaly editorial.

Words

Here's another set of images from the last few months. There's some behind the scenes shots from a couple of editorial shoots, some from our trip to Pitti, and some from the various studios, shops and showrooms we've visited. I shot all the photos on my Canon F1; some of them turned out a little nicer than others, but they all have a great feeling about them.

The Real McCoy's Chino Pants

—01. Blue Seal chinos.
—02. 45 Civilian chinos.

Words

A lot of people look forward to fall to start breaking in new denim, but the pants I'm most excited to put some wear into is the Blue Seal chino from The Real McCoy's. The cotton twill used is very tough and quite thick. The stitching, button fly and interior details are subtle and considered, and the straight cut combines really well with boots, a military jacket or thick knit. We have two versions available at the moment and both feel like they could stand up to anything come winter.

A.P.C. Fall Miltary Jacket

01

Images

—01. Tartan lining.
—02. Corduroy collar.

Words

Unsurprisingly A.P.C. have put out another camo jacket for the fall season. This particular style usually captures my attention as I've been on the fence about buying something similar for a while. I love the camouflage pattern combined with a corduroy collar. With simple buttons, a nice tartan lining and what is likely to be a cotton twill exterior, this fall's offering is a nice way to add the pattern to your closet.

Woolrich Woolen Mills Maine Guide Jacket

01

Images

—01. Maine Guide jacket in black/blue plaid pattern, 100% wool.

Words

The Maine Guide jacket is arguably the best piece in the Woolrich Woolen Mills collection, especially in the fall. It's been seen in a number of fabrics over the last few years, but the use of black and blue this fall - inspired by Daiki's early memories of Comme des Garcons - may make these the best renditions yet. While The Bureau have the plaid and the plain navy, they didn't pick up what might be my favorite version: the black and blue stripe. I would happily wear either of the three though, and hope to pick up at least one this fall.

Quoddy Khaki Suede Maliseet Oxfords

—01. Calico Khaki Suede, Honey Camp Soles, Antique Brass Eyelets.

Words

When I was in New York last week I saw more Quoddy footwear on the streets than anything else. Leathers, red brick soles, white boat soles, suedes - every combination you could think of. Leffot recently offered their clients the opportunity to make up their own Quoddy moccasins and these tan suede Maliseet oxfords are one of the best I've seen. The colour combination is clean and subtle, and feels perfect for the summer.

2nd Magazine: Red Wing Issue

—01. 2nd Magazine, Red Wing Book cover.
—02. Inside spread.

Words

2nd magazine have been putting out some great issues lately and showing a little more editorial depth in their features and photography than the more popular Free & Easy. While both magazines have their place, 2nd has been particularly grabbing my attention lately. This special edition issue focuses soley on one of the best boot companies of our time: Red Wing. 'The Red Wing Book' looks at the company, its rise in popularity and some of Japan's biggest collectors. The brand is one of my personal favorites so this book will be a must have for the shelf.

Pillows & Totes

—01. Floral print tote bag.
—02. New totes and pillows, and good ol' Sammy.

Words

Wayne Pate has been keeping busy these days with a couple of different side projects. Aside from his illustration work, he recently picked out some great looking fabrics to make up some pillows and tote bags. I particularly like the floral and polka dot fabrics used on the pillows. These aren't something I am often looking for, but when the right fabric and the right pattern come along, it's hard to resist a little something for the home, rather than my back.

Sassafras Wool Ball Cap

01

Images

—01. 100% Wool.
—02. Made in the USA.

Words

Sassafras haven't shown us too many collaborations or accessories but this wool ball cap is great. The almost ratty looking lettering offers a nice reference to the Giants while also representing the brand's initials. It's made by Cooperstown Ball Cap Co. in the USA and is a nice alternative to something by Ebbets Field Flannels.

&mdashAvailable at Takanna
