Albam Climbing Shorts

—01 & 02. Garment dyed and heavily washed.

Words

I've seen some great versions of the climbing short this spring and these heavily washed mineral red jams from Albam are one of the best. They feature a French military metal buckle, herringbone drawcord, and authenticated fit. The fabric makes it easy to wear, and a tastefully updated classic.

Words

Albam has been working on this book for a long time, as you might have known if you read about it in Issue 01. Photographer John Spinks documented the people and places that make the Albam products and the brand now has the book available on their freshly updated website.

Double Corduroy

Words

While I am a fan of Fantastic Man and I think it's a beautifully designed publication and brand, I don't often find much personal inspiration from the fashion featured. However, today's Daily Recommendation is a great look featuring some of my favorite brands, and combining a couple of corduroy pieces. The double corduroy maneuver is a tricky one and it could easily go wrong, but I like how they kept it simple with a clean crew neck sweat. Now, for the choice of footwear...

Albam Rollneck

—01. Grey Marl.
—02. Made in the UK.

Words

People definitely seem to be coming around on the rollneck sweater again this season. Whether it's from Nigel Cabourn, SNS Herning or relative newcomers to knitwear, it feels like the classic style is having a small revival. Albam have made their version in grey marl, charcoal and red. The fit is casual, the wool is warm and the price is very reasonable.

Words

Albam are getting ready to release some of their first fall products and have shot a handful of looks as a preview for the upcoming season. The brand hasn't done much in the way of lookbooks in the past so it's nice to see some well taken photographs bringing things to life a little more this time around.

Words

Albam has been one of the biggest supporters and sellers of our magazine and it's been great to work with the company over the last year. While they've helped spread our product, they have grown at a tremendous rate themselves over the last 12 months. Since I met James and the crew last summer, they've added two more shops and a number of new products. On my recent visit to London I was able to see the Spitalfields shop and quite liked the new space. I would have to say it's my favorite Albam shop of the three locations and it was nice to see the increasingly nice selection of print alongside the increasingly good offering of soft goods.

Albam Ventile Alpine Jacket

01

—01. Orange Ventile.
—02. Taped seams.

Words

Albam continue to develop and push their products in design and functionality. Their outerwear has been one of the most obvious examples of this as the materials used, simplicity of design and production techniques have all taken steps forward. The Apline jacket will be Albam's first made from Ventile with taped seams and they say it's the ultimate evolution of the Fisherman's Cagoule in terms of performance and functionality. Overall, it's a cleaner design made from a superior fabric. Coming in orange, navy and olive, it will be hitting Albam locations in June.
