Crescent Down Works 60/40 Down Sweater

01

Image

—01. Made in USA.

Words

Admittedly it's sometimes hard to digest the idea of Fall-Winter outerwear when shops are receiving their deliveries in the heat of summer, but these classic down sweaters with a detachable hood are always a smart purchase for the colder months ahead. End has received a large selection of Crescent Down Works product, which can be fairly elusive, so anyone wanting one of these pieces might not be able to wait until they're seasonally appropriate.

C.P. Company Nycra Arm Lens MA-1

01

Image

01. Nycra fabric blend construction.

Words

C.P. Company’s contemporary take on the classic MA-1 style is one of the most attractive revisions of this jacket I’ve seen. The slim cut and flap pockets really make the silhouette work, while the lens used as a watch viewer on the sleeve pocket is an interesting application of one of the brand's most iconic recurring details.

Converse 3-Panel Chuck Taylor 1970 Ox

—01. Canvas uppers.

Words

While not as understated as the numerous solid colour '70s Chucks out there, this red, white and blue version might be the right choice for those that appreciated the ‘stars and stripes’ model released earlier this year, but felt they couldn’t quite pull them off. Slightly more wearable than those, the tricolour design feels simple enough but is sure to attract a little more attention than standard editions.

Comme des Garçons SHIRT Border Stripe Tee

01

Image

—01. Ribbed collar.

Words

As new collections continue to show up in retailers around the world, there are a handful of items that work just as well in the summer as they do crossing over into fall. This border tee from Comme des Garçons SHIRT is a simple, easy to wear piece that would look great with some shorts on the yacht or layered under some navy and black wool in the winter.

Adidas Stan Smith by Raf Simons

—01. Vulcanised sole.

Words

These shoes might be priced rather highly, especially considering their subtle design in comparison to the originals, but there is an undeniable appeal. Whether it's an interest in Raf Simons – the man or the label – or maybe the desire for something just that little bit different, these are probably the simplest Consortium collaboration to date, as well as the best.

Nike Lunar Force 1 '14

—01. Translucent outsole.

Words

After missing out on the first release of Nike's Lunar Force 1, I've frequently been checking eBay for a pair in my size, but to no avail. Fortunately the latest version of the shoe might be even better. While I'm not 100% sold on the translucent sole, I much prefer the classic full leather upper.

Levi's Vintage Clothing 1970s Orange Tab 615

—01. Medium wash.
—02. Cone Mills denim.

Words

Levi's Orange Tab products from the late '60s and early '70s, long thought by collectors to be inferior to vintage Red Tab items, have received many desirable reproductions from LVC this season, surely regaining some of the respect they deserve in the process. Produced in a medium washed original Cone Mills denim, the 1970s 615 model is an understated style with a straight leg, bar tack construction, zip fly and a leather-like patch.

Nike Air Max 98 OG

—01. White & Team Orange.

Words

The welcome trend of Nike reissuing styles from the '90s makes it really easy to pick up that pair of shoes you may have owned or missed owning in the past. While they might not be to everyone's taste, I'm excited to see this re-release of the cult classic Air Max 98. The exposed air bag makes them very attractive and they'd look great with jeans and a T-shirt.
