—01. Made in USA.

Words

The all grey New Balance releases are always the ones that catch my attention and Blue Button Shop has one of the most desirable colourways in one of the most sought after models still available. Options like this are the best of the best in my opinion, to be chosen any day over vibrant of-the-moment limited editions that are rolled out in steady streams. More all grey colourways, I say!

Kapital Katsuragi Django Pea Coat

—01. 100% cotton.

Words

Kapital’s restrained designs are the ones that always catch my eye, ranking alongside some of the best from any Japanese brand. This single breasted pea coat is certainly of that ilk, featuring an overall simplicity, free from any superfluous details. The shorter cut and option to button the lapel at the neck make it a good choice if you're looking for a unique, lightweight cotton version of the always classic naval style.

Life Stationery Vermilion Notebook

01. A6 Size.
02. Lined.

Words

Notebooks are a great addition to coat pockets for making lists and jotting things down, but there are so many different options to choose from. These two, featuring graphics based on Life magazine covers from 1951, are handmade in Japan with different coloured jackets to distinguish lined from grid paper. Perhaps most importantly though, they are very affordable so you can stock up on enough for every coat in your closet.

Phigvel Zip Hooded Sweatshirt

—01. Made in Japan.
—02. 100% cotton.

Words

This simple 1950s sweatshirt, featuring an oatmeal body and contrasting navy pocket and hood details, from the Japanese brand Phigvel, is the right decision for a finely made, lightweight athletic fleece. The two-tone colourway sets it apart from the scores of monochrome versions out there and the two-way zipper adds a nice touch.
