Makr Standard Canvas

—01. Fold weekender and A-strap tote.

Words

Makr has been adding new styles to their collection at an alarming pace. Usually when that happens, the design lacks and the new styles aren't as good as the originals, however at Makr it seems to be the other way around. On top of the more interestingly designed styles, Makr has launched a 'Standard Canvas' range which offers some nice, simple tote bags in some great shades of blue.

In Stock: Margaret Howell SS11

—01. Walkers jacket.
—02. Gingham work shirt.
—03. Ticket pocket trousers.

Words

Margaret Howell's spring collection arrived from London a few days ago. The collection is quite large, but as usual we took a close look and edited down our buy to build a nice cohesive look and feel that would blend nicely with our own favorite items, as well as those on the rails in the shop. The gingham workshirt is a great color, and looks nice alongside any other shades of blue. The pieces all look and feel better than I remember when we saw them last summer. The Walkers jacket is another standout, along with the trousers which are some of the best the brand has produced.

—01. Red/grey/black.
—02. Black/white/purple.

Words

Think our minds might be on socks these days? Well this is the first pair of Sunny Sports socks that I've seen, and I like them. The color options are nice and they provide a good hit of tone for any simple outfit. C'H'C'M just received them for spring, along with a couple of shirts and some knitwear.

Restock: Swedish Army Belts

—01. Deadstock Swedish Army belt after almost 10 years of wear.

Words

The Deadstock Swedish Army belts are back. The first shipment sold out extremely quickly, but luckily our source had a couple more stored away in the basement for us. We pretty much cleaned them out this time, so it's tough to say if there will be any more after this shipment is gone. The sturdy natural tan leather is the perfect size, combined with simple details, nice hardware and a solid build.

Alden Roy

—01. Made in USA.

Words

Context have released a new version of their special make up 'Roy' boot this spring. It features a roughout leather instead of the brown chromexcel as the earlier model did. It comes on the plantation crepe sole, which is my personal favorite from Alden. The boot is one of the best in the Alden arsenal, and will be a great option for the remainder of spring and it might even leave you wanting fall to come early again.

Spring Style

01

Images

—01. Nice contrast of patterns.
—02. Floral and olive, almost always great together.

Words

Simple use of fabric textures and patterns is generally pretty key to any outfit. I particularly like the mix of these two looks. Using knit cotton, floral patterns, oxford and a simple military olive, you can pretty much come up with enough combinations to last you a good few years. The way the items of Engineered Garment's spring collection work together are pretty tough to beat.

Video

—01. A forgotten gem.

Words

The International Stussy Tribe is an impressive brand that has transcending the decades and sub-cultures in a way not many brands ever could. This old video feature on the brand is great, and a nice reminder about why Stussy will always have a special place in our view.
