2nd Snap

—01. Spread from Snap edition; featuring 'Outdoor style'.

Words

While Free & Easy still is probably the most famous of the Japanese fashion magazines in our little world, 2nd has quickly become one of our favorites. The content is often a bit more focused and sometimes a little nicer put together, but it is their special edition books like the Red Wing version and now the 'Snap' edition that I really like. The latest special magazine features street style shots from all over Japan. Showing shop keepers, random people on the street and a couple designers, it definitely is a great way to see some interesting outfits. Whether inspiration for getting dressed or finding a specific garment, its definitely a great issue to have around.

Sierra Designs x Pendleton

—01. Pendleton wool lining.

Words

We've seen a few of the North West inspired brands make an appearance in the western world now, Crescent Down Works and Mt Rainier Design are quickly becoming the standard, but Sierra Designs still seem just beyond reach most of the time. This version of their classic 60/40 mountain parka is made with Pendleton wool, which accents the exterior green nicely and adds something extra in terms of style and warmth to an already great jacket.

—01. Miyajima Island, Japan.

Words

Fellow Canadian and photographer, Vincent Tsang has been traveling around Japan over the holidays. He's visited a handful of cities, shops, regions and people so far, but along his way he'll be capturing some images for the next issue of Inventory magazine. His shots are very clean, nicely composed and give a nice view of Japan in the winter.

In Stock: Free & Easy 'Rugged Ivy'

—01. Issue 148, February 2011.

Words

While we've just started the new year, somehow the Japanese publications are already producing their February 2011 issues. The latest arrival in the Stockroom is the new issue from Free & Easy. The Japanese Bible of ruggedness always sells quickly, but the latest offering looks at the 'Rugged Ivy' way of life. Keeping with Free & Easy's 'all rugged' ways, its another strong mix of product, craftsmanship and styled looks.

Happy New Year

—01. Goodbye 2010.

Words

2010 has been a very excited and busy year for us. It's been one of the most fun of my life personally and I want to thank all of those who we worked with over the last year, those who helped us out and those who supported us. We've got lots planned for 2011 and don't plan on slowing down anytime soon. On behalf of Inventory, I'd like to wish the best 2011 to all of our readers, supporters and contributors, and say thanks for a great 2010.

Sassafras Pruner Pants

—01. Pruner pants.

Words

Well, good luck finding these. It won't be easy, but I loved them so I had to blog them anyways. Sassafras have put out a new pant this fall called the 'pruner pant', and it looks great. A mix of cotton and nylon, the reinforced thighs feature a tonal green fabric and a washed green cotton for the rest of the pant. The fit looks great, the greens look amazing and they look unique, yet subtle enough for easy wear - a tough thing to accomplish in today's market.
