Luxo L-1

Image

—01. Table Base.

Words

Some may ask, why not just get an Anglepoise lamp? It's the most renowned adjustable task light on the market and the design is very similar. I find the Luxo L-1, designed by Jac Jacobsen in 1937, a logical alternative to the spring-balanced style pioneered two years earlier by George Cawardine, and an equally classic example of utilitarian lighting. Variety is the spice of life after all.

Kaptain Sunshine Cooperstown Ball Cap

Image

—01. Made in USA.

Words

I find it very hard to resist an immaculate USN reference like this. The logo is extremely unique and the hat itself features all the right historical details, almost nullifying the steep price for a piece of headwear. Although maybe this only applies to those of us attracted to mid-century American Navy items.

Ana-Tech Footwear Cruz Comfort Sandal

—01. Golden Brown.

Words

These sandals, made in the USA and employing orthopaedic components, are a great choice for those that put comfort above all else. Utilizing a richly textured suede footbed, adjustable foot straps and a cushioned sole made from recycled polyurethane, comfort is clearly paramount, but understated, handsome styling is just as obvious.

—01. Deadstock Big Yank Flannel Shirt.
—02. 1960s Lee 98J Coverall.

Words

Deadstock clothing from the 1960s and earlier is getting harder and harder to come by, and the glory days of finding rare items for a song seem to be a thing of the past. In turn, more shops are now carrying well-selected vintage pieces alongside new offerings. A-1 Clothing has a number of these, as well as some mid-century homewares and collectable promotional items, in a section they call Flea Market.

Words

Made from a blend of cotton and nylon, this cap by New York-based accessories brand paa offers the bonus of some extra protection in a sudden change of weather, but the real attraction is the clean, one colour styling.

—01. Made in Canada.

Words

We already know that Arc'teryx Veilance products provide some of the best protection when it comes to wind and rain, but the brand's understated design and modern aesthetic has helped it stand out in an increasingly competitive market. The Partition Coat, especially in this Nightfall shade, is one of the best, most useful spring jackets we currently have in the shop. It's lightweight, versatile and highly functional, making it a great piece for anyone's wardrobe.
