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

—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.

Beams Plus Plaid Twill Scarf

—01. Nice length and width.
—02. Cotton twill.
—03. Made in Japan.

Words

Our second delivery from Beams Plus arrived recently and to our pleasant surprise, the red and black plaid flannel items looked and felt better than we remembered. Unlike your usual flannel, the Japanese cotton twill has a slightly more coarse texture, but it's still very soft and feels good on. The strong plaid pattern is perfect on a scarf and works really well with olive, tan and chambray.

Beams x Sugar Cane Bandanas

—01. Made in Japan.

Words

Sugar Cane and Beams have hooked up again, this time for a very simple, yet great looking item. Bandanas seem to be more popular than I thought these days as we can't keep the Real McCoy's or Beams Plus ones in stock. The colors and light weight cotton used for this batch are especially nice. They were made slightly bigger than usual so that you could use them around your neck more easily as well.

Nigel Cabourn Fall Cameraman

—01. Navy.
—02. Army.

Words

Nigel Cabourn has been picking up steam in terms of press and hype in the last couple of seasons, but without question this fall's collection measures up to that. Nigel always offers an incredible selection of outerwear, but the Cameraman is probably one of his most sought after, wearable and iconic pieces. Available in navy and army, the combination of Mackintosh and Harris Tweed is at its finest this season.

Red Wing Sage Moc Toe

—01. Sage suede upper.
—02. Made in USA.

Words

The moc toe boot from Red Wing is one of their most famous models. Last spring we saw the chukka done in this subtle sage suede, but this fall the better known work boot gets the treatment. Again, I like it and although I'll probably stick with my more traditional option, it definitely gives this classic a fresh feel.

Warehouse 15th Anniversary Jeans

—01. 15th Anniversary Limited Edition.
—02. Cotton flannel pocket bags.
—03. Made in Japan.

Words

After producing some of the finest garments in the world for 15 years, Warehouse are celebrating their anniversary with a special pair of jeans due for release in October. Made from a rinsed 14 oz. denim, they feature a combination of details the brothers have used over the years. One of my favorites is the cotton flannel pocket bags. These were originally added to provide warmth, but they also look great, and it's often those subtle details that really take a pair of jeans to the next level.

Leather Man Ltd. Belts

—01. Made with tan bull hide.

Words

Mr. Mud and Mr. Gold have put together a fine selection of products in their Stockholm store. It's one I only recently found out about when they enquired about selling Inventory. One of the brands they carry that I hadn't heard of before was Leather Man Ltd. They have some great belts from the Connecticut based accessory maker, all of which look well made, use high quality leathers and seem fairly well priced.
