Words

With an increasing number of great Japanese magazines covering the menswear market, it can be difficult to pick which ones to buy. Not being able to read them quickly puts the emphasis on product curation, photographs and art direction. For me, HUGE has been a favorite for a little while, and of course Free & Easy has made a fair few good issues over the years. Another title that's been consistently impressing us lately is 2nd, so we decided to pick up a few issues for the Stockroom. The most recent issue, the previous one and the Red Wing special edition are now available in-store and online.

Words

2nd magazine have been putting out some great issues lately and showing a little more editorial depth in their features and photography than the more popular Free & Easy. While both magazines have their place, 2nd has been particularly grabbing my attention lately. This special edition issue focuses soley on one of the best boot companies of our time: Red Wing. 'The Red Wing Book' looks at the company, its rise in popularity and some of Japan's biggest collectors. The brand is one of my personal favorites so this book will be a must have for the shelf.
