Recollections: 49 States

01 02

Images

—01-04. All photographs by Jody Rogac.

Words

The subject of Issue 05's Recollections is Koji Kusakabe, the owner of Extra in New York. This summer Jody Rogac and I visited him at his home, heard all about his experiences as a vintage buyer in the US and saw for ourselves some of the amazing items he's amassed over the years. Recollections is a relatively new addition to the magazine, but has quickly become one my favourite sections, especially to put together.

Sophnet Quilted Vests

01

Images

—01. Navy.
—02. Camo.

Words

Sophnet have made some great mid-layer vests this fall. Besides the printed Nordic vest which I actually quite like, the plain navy or camo are probably easier to wear. The thin feel and light weight made it ideal to fit under a jacket.

—01. Flower Directory.

—03. Unpublished Hackney Flowers.
—04. Black and Red.

Words

Focused but extremely varied, the majority of January's Huge is dedicated to flowers. I had a flick through it before leaving Tokyo and it's one the best issues of any magazine I've seen in a while. Looking forward to our copies arriving this week.

Workers USN Herringbone Jumper

01

Images

—01. 5.2 oz Herringbone.
—02. 100% Cotton.

Words

Among December's releases from Workers is this USN Jumper in lightweight herringbone cotton. I really like khaki coloured jackets, but find it a bit hard to find one I really want. This piece is great for layering, the shape and referenced design is well done and as with everything from Workers, there will never be a ton in circulation as they are made to order.

Feathered Friends Down Jackets

01

Images

—01. Olive hooded jacket.
—02. Blue short collar jacket.

Words

Quality down jackets made just across the border in Seattle. The pop of color, pack-ability and classic design make these jackets a nice alternative to Patagonia if you're looking for something locally made.

Freunde von Freunden

01

Info

—01-03. Images from Silke Neumann interview.

Words

Freunde von Freunden, friends of friends translated, is one of those websites you've seen a lot of images from, but more likely on a variety of other blogs and tumblrs. The German website has been doing some nice interviews, accompanied by great photos of their subject's apartments, studios and shops for the past couple of years. More recently, FvF have published a book and taken a trip to New York, so it should be interesting to see which friends they linked up with on their excursion to America.

—01. Satchel.
—02. Ruck.
—03. Tote.
—04. Hook.

Words

Despite having just recently finished designing the interior for the new Unis store in LA, Jason Gregory of Makr Carry Goods has also managed to find the time to launch a whole host of new products online. Jason and his team have recently improved and added to the popular Farm series with various new colourways and models, while the Makr Studio Goods line has also grown to include new versions of their Studio Stool and several reworked wall hooks. Not featured here, but also highly recommended based on it's continuous personal use, is the Makr Bottle Key. Very, very handy.

New Balance at End

01

Featured Items

—01. Navy suede 577 with grey accents.
—02. Slighty more unusual olive 574s.
—03. Timeless 998s with hints of burgundy

Words

New Balance aren't all that hard to find these days, but just up the A69 from Flimby in Newcastle, End always seem to have one of the better selections of the classic running shoes at any given moment. Choice versions of the quintessential 577 and 998 are in two colours of suede — navy with grey and grey with burgundy respectively. The often overlooked 574 is in a nice olive suede right now as well, as well as a couple of decent options in perhaps my favourite model the 1500.
