Words

The Rugged Standard is the latest development from the man behind one of our favorite online shops, Superdenim. With an extensive selection of The Real McCoy’s and Studio D’Artisan, as well as fine offerings from Post Overalls, Tricker’s, Viberg and now Mister Freedom, the shop continues to build momentum by opening it’s first set of doors. The Rugged Standard is the first brick and mortar shop by Lewis Hull. Located in York, the shop is in a small and tidy space on the 2nd floor with clean wood floors and a nice amount of natural light. While the shop continues to add new labels and collections, it’s already stocking some of the most difficult to find Japanese brands in the world.

Post Overalls Shorts

Words

We did include rascal pants in our Illustrated Examples this spring, but shorts of the same sort can also be a nice touch. The pattern and colors of these Post Overalls Menpolini shorts are definitely a little flamboyant, but offer a nice injection of tone into a summer outfit. I’d definitely pair them up with something mellow however.

Available at Garbstore

The flowers and greenery of New York play host to the brands light weight fabrics, muted colors and understated design. The full collection is available in their Elizabeth St. shop and we also have a feature with the New York based brand in our spring issue.

—01. This spring issue features a nicely curated travel section, including '24 Hour Vancouver'.

Words

Apartamento’s fifth and most recent issue has just begun hitting select retailers around the world and I’m proud to finally make the magazine available in our Stockroom. As ‘an everyday interiors magazine’, Apartamento again delivers a solid selection of short stories, interviews and a newly added travel supplement titled, ‘binocolo’. It’s more rich photography, interesting people and great looking interiors. We not only have the latest issue, but a fair stock of issue 04 as well.

Words

It’s been a long and challenging road to go from the first magazine with no expectations and no distribution to publishing our second issue. Now having it on the shelves of some of our favorite stores around the world in a timely matter is the next step as we await for our shipment of 8,000 magazines coming back from the printer. Earlier this week we looked over the last of the proofs with much excitement. We can’t wait to get the new issue into our hands, your hands and onto the racks. It’s now available for pre-order in the Stockroom – both covers. We are anticipating shipping to commence on May 15th, and we’ll publish a comprehensive list of our stockists shortly after.

In My Bag

Items

Wm. J. Mills & Co. tote, Louis Vuitton Passport holder, Canon F1 35mm, Woolrich shorts, The Real McCoy's army hat, Ray Ban Clubmasters, Saint James socks, Papermate pens, Apartamento, HUGE, Moleskin, Muji card holder (with cards inside), iPod, Blackberry & Malin+Goetz moisturizer.

Words

Bringing back the ‘In my Bag’ post once more, we recently shot some articles for our spring issue and each of us took photos of our ‘bags’. Some things are in there every day and somethings aren’t, but most of them are mine and get used regularly. The whole concept of the bag posts was to offer insight into people’s personal tastes and how the things they find important or at least aesthetically pleasing. There probably aren’t many surprises in my bag other than maybe my passport holder and the lack of something by Engineered Garments, but each thing serves its purpose and looks fairly nice, especially those Papermate pens.

In Stock: The Real McCoy's

Words

One of our most exciting additions to the Inventory Stockroom this spring is The Real McCoy’s. Arguably the best reproduction brand in the world, McCoy’s offers a diverse range of products through The Real McCoy’s, Joe McCoy’s, Buco and the other licences the company now holds. Producing iconic American garments is the end product, but the brand itself is very special and there is a lot of love, research and history involved in creating each piece. The brand was fortunate enough to let us dig into their archives for some of our favorite pieces before they are gone forever. As well we picked up a few of the season’s staples and are happy to offer some of the best knits, accessories, work shirts and chinos the market has to offer. We often describe the McCoy’s has being “bomb proof” due to its incredible make and quality. The choice of fabrics and construction are some of the best we’ve ever seen. We’ve included a few images of the items that we picked for the spring season, all of which are now available online.

Supreme Book

01

—01. Now available at Supreme, $68.

Words

As soon as I read about this book coming out it became a must have. There aren’t many brands that have shaped our culture and market place like Supreme. Even growing up out on the West Coast of Canada, Supreme always had a legendary feel and aspect through the bits that could be found at twentyfour or Richard Kidd. Then being able to visit NY, LA and Tokyo in recent years – it was always high on the list. The brand is unique in many ways but the foundation of New York set the tone and allowed the boiling pot to bring influence from all over and channel them into something special. Rather than take photos of all of the pages, I would recommend picking up a copy for yourself.
