Sassafras Seed Jacket

—01. Olive satin cotton.

Words

It's getting close to full blown gardening season so it's good timing for Sassafras spring items to start hitting shops. I don't usually like this sort of cardigan style jacket with no collar, but the collar, buttons and back detail make it work for me. The pockets are useful even if you're not packing a full load of bulbs, the color is perfect and Sassafras always use interesting fabrics.

Words

Although shops are receiving spring goods like there's no tomorrow, we can't help but look ahead as we're finishing up our fall-winter buying. Of course Engineered Garments is one of the brands we look forward to most, and it will be no different for 2011 as Daiki Suzuki has put together another outstanding collection. Featuring some great wools, some classic staples and some new styles, it was fun to buy and will be one of the highlights next fall.

Nigel Cabourn Aircraft Jacket

—01. Apple green.
—02. Blue.

Words

Nigel Cabourn's collection has started to roll out for the spring and its no surprise that most stockists have picked up the Aircraft jacket. It's the standout piece of the season and its available in some really nice colors. We just received it in the blue and apple green, but Oi Polloi were first to get up the green option which is probably the best of the pack. The weight of the jacket is really nice, ideal for most of the year when paired with some warm layers. The zipper, buttons and hood all feel nicely balanced as it's probably one of Nigel's best new pieces in the last couple season.

Words

We've got some great products coming out this year; some are the result of exciting new partnerships and others are courtesy of tried and trusted relationships. They'll be plenty more on this particular release in the next few days. For now I just wanted to let you know that we've made some socks with Superior Labor, they're on their way and we're honoured to be working with such an amazing company.

Junya Watanabe Man

—01. Interior of the yarn dyed cotton blazer.

Words

The Junya Watanabe spring collection offers a rather paired down offering compared to the past few seasons, at least from the exterior. The collection features a great palette of blues, khaki, stripes and checks. While the pieces are still definitively Junya, they work well into almost any wardrobe and offer something unique to these basic styles.

Heller's Cafe Knit Football Jersey

—01. Inspired by a 1930s football jersey.

Words

The Heller's Cafe collection has continued to impress and this spring includes some really nice pieces. Although they look simple at first, its the quality and small details, along with the fabric choice and top notch production by Warehouse that really set them apart. I think it takes handling a product like this to really get a good sense of its value. This football shirt is one of the few pieces I've yet to see in person, but I'm hoping to get a look soon.

Nike Match Classic

—01. Khaki suede.

Words

Come spring time, you definitely need a couple pairs of trainers to beat up for a few months. A nice white or off-white canvas or suede is usually the best looking and these Nike Match Classics definitely fit the bill. Subtle branding on a classic model, good color choice and a nice silhouette - pretty much perfect.

Yuketen Spring Collection

—01. Yuketen Spring stockists.

Words

A couple times during the year we get a delivery of some of the best shoes in the world. These three styles are just tough to top and I think it's safe to say we're fans of the crepe sole and the beautiful hand-sewn moccasin construction. Each shoe offers a little something different, but all four are best in class. I am personally having a very difficult debate between the Country Loafer and the Sport Chukka.

These models are now available at Inventory Stockroom
