—03. Limited to 18 pieces.

Words

Heller's Cafe has had a large impact on North American brands as one of the leading vintage showrooms in the US. Designers, directors and creatives have been making the trip out to Seattle for years to visit the acclaimed showroom and to get inspired by what Larry has found. More recently, Heller's Cafe have been collaborating with Japan's Warehouse on a number of items to build up what is one of the more interesting vintage inspired collections available. This summer the two brands produced these 'Side Buckle Work Pants' in a special wash for J.Crew. The pants are limited to 18 pairs and will be available at J.Crew in New York as of today.

Inspiration: Super Pay Day Jacket

—01. Made in the USA.
—02. Mid 1930s details.

Words

It's always interesting to see what garments spark a certain inspiration for designers. This mid-30s Pay Day jacket was one of those items for Takeshi Ohfuchi of Post Overalls. The details in the garment from the different types of stitching to the first use of Sanforized denim cotton to the natural wear and pocket details all contributed to the way he sees clothing today. If it now looks familiar, it's because its a strong reference point for Takeshi's current Engineer's jacket in the Post Overalls collection.

Want: Converse Addict Low

01

—01. Simple colorway, goes with everything and will last.

Words

The white canvas sneaker is and has always been a fairly important item to have on a day to day basis, especially during the summer. I like it with chinos, denim and shorts so pretty much all the bases are covered. Lately my Vans have taken a fair beating and I have been looking for something to step in and shoulder some of the weight. Converse is an obvious choice but I've never really worn All Stars and have been wanting something slightly different. I've heard good reviews of the Converse Addict range that released in Japan last year and have been trolling eBay and Yahoo auctions lately for the low cut white canvas version. The Vibram sole, extra cushioning and slightly higher rand definitely have me close to pulling the trigger.

Our Legacy by Mathias Sterner

—01. A small book was printed and bound featuring the photos last month.

Words

In some of my recent posts featuring Our Legacy's spring collection you'll notice I've used slightly different product shots than usual. These photos are apart of the brand's spring campaign which was shot by their friend and photographer, Mathias Sterner. The photographs capture the items in their natural habits of lived in, beautifully lit spaces. The shots are rich in color, texture and a mood that gives the products a different feeling, one that is more interesting and human, as if the person is just out of frame or in another room. Mathias has worked for a number of publications including Apartamento, Monocle and Pig. His shots have a great consistency and nice feel to them, full of character and great light.

Arkitip x CSC

Words

Although the World Cup came to a partially sad close over the weekend, I just got my hands on the latest issue of Arkitip. In collaboration with Adidas and Chinatown Soccer Club, they've produced a dedicated football issue which includes artwork, photography, interviews and some background on the CSC. It comes with a fan scarf made for the downtown New York club and I have to say the project turned out great all around. It was even nice to see a little Inventory page in the back of the issue. Thanks for including us and congrats on another great issue.

45rpm Fall–Winter

Words

45rpm have just released the lookbook for their Fall–Winter collection and the first items from the season have already landed in their New York shops. This fall we see some very rich navy blues in different fabrics, combined with some bright pops of colour in the shirting and accessories. The brand continues to produce some of the finest garments around, accented beautifully by some of the best collection photography. It's hard to look through the images and not get a good feeling, both from the atmosphere and the look of the clothing. I particularly love the layering of multiple shades of blue in several of the outfits this season.

Three Potato Four

01

Details

—01. Selection of nicely curated goods.

Words

Whether it's for our shop or home, we've always got an eye open for good little finds to fill a corner, house a plant or just look good sitting there. Three Potato Four make it easy to find those things that sometimes seem hard to track down. Not many shops that carry vintage pieces and older items have them for sale online, especially for reasonable prices, so Three Potato Four is a refreshing find. They are easy to order from, the photographs are nice and the goods are well edited.

Now Available: Japanese Organic Cotton Stripes

—01. Navy stripe, front.
—02. Grey stripe, back.

Words

With the heat of summer in full effect around the world, even in Vancouver, a lot of people are on the hunt for the perfect lightweight summer shirt. With that in mind, we've just updated the Stockroom with the striped version of our latest collaboration with Gitman Bros. The navy and grey options are classic and subtle, very soft, and the lightweight Japanese organic cotton is perfect for this time of year. The blue gingham shirts have been flying off the shelves so I wouldn't expect the stripes to be around for long either.
