It's always been a dream to open a shop and this weekend we finally opened the Inventory Stockroom in Vancouver, BC. Thanks to everyone who came out to the opening on Friday and over the weekend. We are quite happy with how everything has turned out and while there are a few things to finish up, we are proud of our new space, the brands we are working with and to finally share our vision with more people in a new way.

Tembea

Words

Tembea is a Japanese bag brand I recently came across through the Utility Coop, one of my favorite Japanese online shops. The tough canvas bags come in a lot of different sizes and shapes to fit a big haul of acorns or a healthy supply of baguettes. The bags themselves do look really good, but it was the great product shots that really caught my eye. Something that you don't see all too often, but I really appreciate. The colors and small situations the bags are in just look right and make the product and brand even more appealing.

Ralph Lauren Hawaiian Trunks

Words

It's been swim trunk weather in some places recently, unfortunately it's still a little ways away for us in Vancouver. There are plenty of options out there, but most just aren't great. Ralph Lauren is definitely a brand that will come through for you when looking for a classic item however. I quite like the yellow colour and I think they would work well with a white or blue oxford when you leave the pool/lake/shore to run into town.

Makr continue to produce great looking goods that are useful and fairly well priced. The latest edition is the new Farm Ruck which uses natural canvas and beautiful leather accents from Horween's legendary tannery. The colour, details and simplicity all combine for a great looking backpack. It will be coming in three colours and retail for $150 in the near future.

In Stock: Duluth Pack for Inventory Items

01

Details

—01. Now available in both navy & tan.

Words

While hunting for the perfect rugged canvas back pack, Duluth was the first name that came to mind last summer. We have been thrilled to continually work with the US company on our custom bags and the recent delivery includes both the colours we've made in the last year. The tan and navy canvas are the perfect accents to any outfit and the size and details are ideal for daily use. Both colours come with the locker loop, interior pocket and a lifetime guarantee.

J.Crew Shorts

—01. Camp shorts in olive.
—02. Broken-in chino shorts, 7" inseam.
—03. Swim trunks in seersucker.

Words

One thing I seem to buy from J.Crew regularly is their shorts. The fit, fabric and price point are difficult to beat. Even when I might like another option a bit more, J.Crew can often offer a similar version for less than half the price - and I never really feel great about spending a lot on shorts. This summer, like most, there is a nice variety of chino cotton, seersucker and plaid available. From around $40-60 you can easily acquire just what's needed for the heat and these are a a couple of my preferred styles.

Porter x Coffee and Milk Rucksack

01

Images

—01. Black synthetic fabric.
—02. Nice leather patches.
—03. Strap detail.

Words

Another bag that can only be found in Japan? Yes, I know but that seems to be the case with a lot of accessories I like. I'm unaware of the history of the Coffee and Milk brand myself, but I am definitely a fan of this collaboration. I don't mind the playful leather patches on the top of the bag, but it's the overall shape, style and colour that is most appealing.
