William Fox & Sons

—01. Navy Day Pack.
—02. Yellow Waist Bag.

Words

While the William Fox & Sons website says the 'sporting goods' company was founded in 1913, I can't seem to find much information on the last brand to be offered at Present. The simple packs come in a nice variety of colors and use classic American outdoor references and styles. The Day Pack and Waist Bag are my picks of the offering.

Words

Quoddy's chukka is one of their classic models, and on the charcoal camp sole its tough to go wrong. The brown suede is a nice fall tone that goes nicely with the dark sole, along with most fall ensembles.

Danner Boots recently released their Stumptown line of boots — a collection of classics from the Danner catalogue which have been re-conceived and updated for today's market. The line features a handful of handmade styles made from quality materials as well as a first cooperative effort with fellow Portland, OR based company Tanner Goods. We recently had the opportunity to make the trip down I-5 to visit the Danner factory and meet with Matt Schneider of Danner as well as Tanner's Sam Huff to learn more about the Stumptown line as well as their collaboration.

HUGE / Engineered Garments

01

Info

—01. 8th Anniversary issue.

Words

The latest issue of HUGE has arrived in the shop, and its another good one. Aside being a celebratory 8th year anniversary issue, the highlight for me is the lengthy Engineered Garments fall-winter editorial. The piece is shot in New York, using a variety of creative individuals from chocolate makers to writers, styled by Akio Hasegawa. Along with this piece is a nice Margiela editorial and the usual fall fashion round up.

Makr A-Strap Tote

01

Images

—01. Available in navy & olive.
—02. Leather shoulder straps.

Words

Makr continue to release very nice looking items that fit into your daily life perfectly. While some blog bashers tend to shy away from the tote, and we might know why, I still feel that is has a very useful place in my daily hauls. Using the #8 cotton duck canvas, in olive and navy, the bag is just the right size, with ideal length leather straps to finish it off.

Brooklyn Gangs

01

Info

—01. Images from 40s & 50s.

Words

'The look: bad boys of Brooklyn. The Hawks, the Saints, the Socialistic Gents lived a hard, fast life dealing dope, wielding weapons, and dodging the fuzz. They were tough, and they dressed even tougher—thick leather boots, paired with cuffed dungarees, held up with a giant brass belt buckle and buttoned, collared shirt; a cropped leather jacket made for easy back pocket access to a switchblade or comb. The smoother criminal chose an extra large suit jacket and dress shirt worn with baggy, pleated slacks and shiny black shoes. An overly sized overcoat made for clever concealment of weapons and stolen goods. Some boys wore their hair thick and slicked back, others sported a nifty newsboy or bowler hat. These candid photo's taken in the 1940s and 1950s really depict an era of violence and fearlessness among teens.'
