Ebbets Field Flannels for Inventory Items

01

—01. Inventory Item 016.

Words

The secret about Ebbets Field Flannels seems to be out now, but that is no reason not to make a nice product with them. One of my personal problems looking through their catalog is figuring out what team to choose. Whether it be a city, a league or the logo, it can be tough if you choose your alliances carefully. We thought that making a plain wool ball cap would be a nice solution, just using a hint of colour on the button on the top of the cap. In our first collaboration with Ebbets, the wool hats come in navy with a burgundy button, and burgundy with a navy button - simple, wearable and good looking.

Woolrich Woolen Mills Ranger Pants

—01. Light weight broad cloth cotton.
—02. Soft olive tone, with multiple pockets.

Words

Daiki may not be known for his pant designs, but I do feel that the Ranger pant is one of his best. The leg is fairly slim, and has a nice tapper, but in my experience, sizing up slightly has made for a perfect fit. The light weight olive broad cloth is a really nice choice for a summer pant as well. The tone is really natural looking, and it would be easy to wear almost everyday.

Alden Navy Suede Long Wings

—01. Exclusive make up for Frans Boone.

Words

Navy suede shoes will always have a certain appeal, especially as our first Inventory shoe came in the colour. In fact these Alden's bare quite a resemblance to those shoes overall. However, Frans Boone's use of Alden's long wing pattern looks very nice, and unique. The red sole might be in the spotlight, however it feels more subtle on these shoes, and I think they'd make a nice spring, summer, fall or winter shoe.

Barena Cargo Shorts

01

—01. Available in navy, olive, stone and khaki.

Words

The Barena collection is slowly building season after season, and while it has developed some signature piece, these simple side pocket shots are some of the most appealing. I think you either want your shorts to be very basic and plain, or have an interesting color or pattern on them. These definitely fall into the first category, but would probably get worn a ton in the months to come.

—01. B.Grey Anorak.
—02. Green Mountain Parka.

Words

We've got some more nice spring outwear by way of Japanese label, Mt. Rainier Design. At least these pieces are now available in North America however. The 60/40 jackets coming in khaki, green and b.grey, and all of the spring jackets we have come lined in a washed out herringbone camo. The fabric is very soft, and the jackets have been well looked after; snap buttons, leather toggles, clean zips and useful pocketing. The pull over anorak is also reversible, should you feel inclined. The jacket are very well made, from American 60/40 fabrics, and fit quite nicely too.

Nanamica Blue Gore-Tex Cruiser Jacket

—01. Waterproof, lightweight cotton jacket with contrast stitching.
—02. Internal zip pocket and press stud throat tab.

Words

There have been a lot of great shades of blue popping up this spring. Nanamica tend to keep it pretty mellow a lot of the time, but this electric blue looks great for a spring jacket. It's different enough from the color of your denim, so that I think you could wear it all the time. It would pop very nicely with khaki as well. Oh ya, and it's made in waterproof Gore-Tex.
