Supreme Editorial

—02. Syled by Yohei Usami.

Words

There have been a good handful of Supreme editorials this fall, each of them very well executed. I wouldn't expect anything less from the NY brand, the subtle variety and use of legendary photographers is impressive. This editorial shot for Warp magazine by Ari Marcpoulos is my favorite however. The use of tone, motion and the styling all came together really nicely to capture a great atmosphere.

Waste(twice) x Lowe Alpine Parka

—01. Gore-Tex Pro Shell outer.

Words

Waste(twice) have developed a nice selection of collaboration items in the last couple years. Often with a mountaineering feeling, the products also feature performance materials like the Gore-Tex Pro Shell on this mountain parka. I really like the two-tone colour combination here, offering a clean design with interesting details. Both the black and the electric blue are nice, and both are not easy to find.

Available at Digital Mountain

—01. Army green Ventile and leather.

Words

Two of our good friends have linked up again for a special product. The Army Gym is one of the best shops in Tokyo, and its not surprising to see that Yuki and Nigel have teamed up on another pair of Hunt boots, this time using a military Ventile fabric to accent the brown leather and crepe soles.

Editor's Essentials

01

—01. Red Wing Chukka.

Words

Every season, or year, there are a few pieces that I tend to wear all of the time. These three items are pretty standard for me to be wearing 5 days a week lately. The Red Wing chukkas were tough to figure out my sizing originally, but now that they are broken in, they've quickly become one of my favorite pairs of shoes. The color is great, the weight and silhouette is nice and they go with pretty much everything. Everything, meaning oxford BD shirts and 12 oz sweatshirts. I consider the Engineered Garments Workaday oxfords and Real McCoy's sweatshirts both best in class, so I have a hard time wearing anything else.

In Stock: Inventory Items Scented Candle

01

—01. Hand poured in Brooklyn, NY.

Words

After some anticipation, our candles are finally available online and also at Dover Street Market. Our first Inventory scent has been received very well. We couldn't be happier with the rich smell Inventory Item 012 has created in our shop, and we've already started working on a complimentary follow-up for next spring. Working with Joya has been very enjoyable so far, and hopefully you'll enjoy this product as much as we are.

Now available at Inventory Stockroom and Dover Street Market

Margaret Howell Fair Isle Socks

—01. Available in 3 colours.
—02. Close-up on wool blend.

Words

Fair Isle socks are always great come fall. While Ralph Lauren seems to have the rights to best version available, Margaret Howell has also made a couple of nice looking pairs this season. They come in three colours and use a nice wool blend, which keeps you warm and looks good - the ideal winter combination.

Beams Plus Tartan Scarves

—01. Available in grey and Black watch.
—02. Made in Scotland.

Words

Our second fall delivery from Beams Plus has arrived at our Vancouver shop, and it includes a couple of great pieces. There's a restock on the BD oxford shirts and bandanas, and we also received some Shetland wool sweaters and classic grey sweatshirts. These wool scarves however might be my favorite items. The wool feels amazing and the simple touch of having one plain side, and one plaid works perfectly. It's a tough choice between the Black watch plaid and the tonal grey. These warm, classic accessories are definitely useful in the winter, especially since the temperature seems to have just dropped significantly
