Look: From the Stockroom

01

Words

As more and more fall products continue to arrive at the Stockroom, I thought it would be nice to put together a look from the shop once in awhile. We plan on photographing somebody wearing these looks in the future, but haven't found a model just yet. In the meantime, this outfit is simple, comfortable and ideal for the fall. I did have to throw in some socks from J.Press to complete the look, but everything else is currently available from us.

Mark McNairy for Engineered Garments Long Wings

Words

Daiki Suzuki and Mark McNairy are no strangers to creating classic menswear with subtle twists and that's just what they did with these long wings. They feature mismatched sections of pebbled full grain leather and smooth calf skin - an almost trademark Nepenthes detail. I'm a big fan of long wings and both designers, so the result is unsurprisingly one of the better new footwear options available this season.

In Stock: Engineered Garments CPO Shirts

01

—01. CPO shirt in black wool.

Words

For some reason I was especially excited for the CPO shirts by Engineered Garments this fall. They are easy to wear over a t-shirt, thermal or another shirt, and the weight and cut are perfect. As usual Daiki hasn't over designed anything either and simple touches like the tonal paisley lining and considered fabrics make it much better than other options out there. Black and navy are also the ideal colors for a CPO shirt. I've already tried to wear mine once on a rare cool evening, but realistically it will have to wait another month before being put into heavy rotation.

Engineered Garments Fall Irving Jackets

01

—01. Tan corduroy.
—02. Grey wool herringbone.

Words

The fall collection from Engineered Garments has begun to hit shops in North America and while I'm excited as a consumer, we are also fortunate enough to be one of the few new stockists this season. The Irving jacket is one of the collection's best items, and was offered in a variety of beautiful fabrics. The casual sport coat has a slightly more refined look than the iconic Bedford, and though it fits a little neater, might be even more versatile in its styling. I'm most excited about the tan corduroy version, which I picked up for myself. However, the olive and herringbone options are extremely nice too, and slightly warmer as they have a subtle quilted lining. Overall, these jackets are a fine example of what Engineered Garments do best: the perfect casual silhouette.

Last Few Months

Words

Here's another set of images from the last few months. There's some behind the scenes shots from a couple of editorial shoots, some from our trip to Pitti, and some from the various studios, shops and showrooms we've visited. I shot all the photos on my Canon F1; some of them turned out a little nicer than others, but they all have a great feeling about them.

Fall Look 01

01

Images

—01. CPO shirt, 19th Century shirt and pocket square by Engineered Garments, pants by Sassafras, knit cap and t-shirt by The Real McCoy's, socks by J.Press, boots by Red Wing.

Words

Normally I don't get too excited about fall in July, but with the knowledge of the items on their way to Vancouver I can't help it. There are a couple of things I miss in the summer - my Red Wings and knit caps in particular - but there are also a couple of other items I am looking forward to picking up this fall, especially the brushed flannel CPO shirt by Engineered Garments. As you can see here, it's one of those simple pieces that works well with everything. The tones in this outfit are easy and I think this is one of those blog posts where I will catch myself looking exactly like it when the weather cools down enough.

&mdashKnit cap and t-shirt available at the Inventory Stockroom now; CPO shirt coming soon.

—01. "Palos Verdes Cove".
—02. Sweater and shorts by Woolrich Woolen Mills.

Words

It's the middle of summer and spending the days by the oceanside are feeling slightly more appealing than shopside, well sometimes. I'll be the first to point out that these particular shorts by Woolrich Woolen Mills aren't for surfing, but they are for looking good and feeling the breeze in the heat - they are also on sale at Odin right now.

Buying: Spring-Summer '11

—01. Daiki Suzuki, Pitti Uomo.

Words

While we are patiently awaiting our first fall-winter deliveries, Simon and I are in New York finishing up our buying for next spring. Our brand list is small and we plan to keep the selection of items we buy well edited and curated in a way that compliments our brand as well as our own personal tastes. Daiki Suzuki is one of the people who makes this quite difficult as the collection is so large and it's one we're particularly fond of. We were fortunate enough to see the Engineered Garments SS11 offering in Florence last month and again in New York yesterday. We've made our final edit, and as fall approaches, we're already excited for next spring.

&mdashArriving soon in the Stockroom
