Alden Natural Chromexcel Indy

—01. Natural Chromexcel leather.

Words

Leffot continue to show off their nice taste in footwear with these fall Indy boots. The model itself is nothing new, but I haven't seen this natural Chromexcel leather used before. It appears to have a really rich tone to it and I'm sure it would show the scuffs of regular wear quite nicely. I'm not 100% on the choice of laces however, I think I would probably use something brown. Moving forward, I would be interested to see this leather used on other models as well.

Last Few Weeks

—01. Tribute to TGF.

Words

I just got some film back the other day and there were a couple of roll ends that got filled up with some daily scenes. All of these shots are from Vancouver - some recognizable, some less so. It's always fun getting photographs back after forgetting about them. Definitely one of the joys usually lost with the digital ways. I've been thinking of trying to get a Leica M6 to take over from my Canon F1, but until then it continues to travel with me as much as possible.

In Stock: Arc'teryx Veilance Align Shell Jacket

—01. Align Shell in 'blueprint' blue.
—02. Made in Canada.

Words

The Arc'teryx Veilance line took me a couple of viewings and a little push to fully embrace. Since I was introduced to the collection however, it has only got better and better. This fall is their most cohesive and solid season to date. The Align Shell Jacket is one of the more simple styles, but it's also probably my favorite. It features a GORE-TEX® 3L Pro Shell MicroGrid outer and has laminated construction which eliminates bulk and stiffness. The 'blueprint' blue also looks amazing in person and seems to go with everything I own. I've been wearing it pretty regularly over the last few months, so it's great to now be selling them in the Stockroom - perfect timing for the rain here in Vancouver.

Visvim for Black Sense

01

Images

—01. Black denim double knee pants.
—02. Black denim chore coat.

Words

I may be a little late on this one, but I just had a closer look at the recent collection Visvim produced for Black Sense. The theme is obviously black, and the star of the show for most people was probably the 7-Hole lugged sole boots. For me however, the dark denim chore coat and double knee pants are definitely my favorite pieces. The coat has an interesting collar shape while the rest of the jacket looks cleanly designed and follows the reference really nicely.

Monitaly Double Breasted Jacket

01

—01. Made in USA.
—02. Wool outer, chambray lining.

Words

Monitaly have continued to develop and improve the fabrication, cut and fit of their garments, and this fall marked a breakthrough according to Yuki and Minou from Meg Company. The double breasted blazer is one of my favorite items in the collection and the wool version for the fall is one of the best I've seen. Using navy wool on the exterior, a chambray lining and a mixed bag of vintage military buttons, the jacket definitely feels unique and fits very nicely. The flap pockets and soft lapel make it relatively wearable for a double breasted blazer too.

Engineered Garments Herringbone Fatigues

—01. Made in USA.
—02. Only available in Japan.

Words

Sometimes it's the subtleties that are the most exciting. I've probably written about fatigue pants more times than necessary, but the latest version of this Engineered Garments Workaday staple is just too nice not to revisit the subject. The tan cotton herringbone is perfect for the autumn season ahead and though I haven't had a chance to inspect the fabric in person, I can imagine it's well worth the investment.

Now Open: Monocle NY

—01. 535 Hudson Street, West Village, NY.

Words

It's surprisingly taken Monocle a little while to open their New York shop front. I know it's been in the works for months and after nearly taking up residence in mid-town, I think Monocle made the right choice with the West Villge. Now taking up 188 square feet at 535 Hudson Street, Monocle has its first east coast outlet for their special collaborations, printed pieces and of course the magazine.

Yuketen Johnson Boot

01

—01. Made in Canada.

Words

Yuketen isn't especially known for their welted shoes, but they have done an exceptional job with these boots. Yuki managed to find a skilled boot maker up north that could deliver just what he was after this fall. The Johnson boot features a nice soft brown leather on a classic Vibram sole. It's not the most iconic Yuketen model, but it's one of my favorites this season.
