Mountain Research Anarcho Pax Walker Backpack

—01. 100% nylon shell.

Words

First of all, I'm sure we know this is absolute overkill for your average city dweller, but that's kind of why it's amazing. Mountain Research does an incredible job of creating items plucked from the perfect idealized camping trip and this backpack is no exception; weatherproof and made from nylon, with a leather bottom and shoulder straps. While well out of reach for most of us and not even generally practical, it certainly is a wonder to behold.

Palace x Reebok Workout Low

—01. Vulcanized.

Words

Released at the beginning of the year, there's something about these Reebok Workout Lows by Palace – appropriated and redesigned to be skateable – that seem to be a great option for a summer sneaker. The white colourway and simple profile is an excellent choice for a shoe that will look fresh and new at the start of the warmer weather and much less so by end.

Mountain Research X3 W.F. Stole

01. 100% Cotton.
02. Two-sided print.

Words

Mountain Research produce these cotton scarves every season, and they always feature an interesting bandana or floral print. This one is particularly good, however, as it offers you the choice of both a blue and a white side.

Woolrich Woolen Mills Watch Cap

—01. Navy.
—02. Olive.

Words

Most seasons I tend to pick up something small from a collection that perhaps appeals, but maybe doesn't bowl me over directly enough to make a substantial purchase. I have a few things here and there that fall into this category, and this Watch Cap from Mark McNairy's Fall '11 Woolrich Woolen Mills collection would seem an ideal candidate for this season's contender. The large text placement won't be for everyone, but the hat is relatively affordable, easily wearable, and available in two classic colours.

Engineered Garments Hooded Down Vest

—01. Large drawstring hood.
—02. 90% Goose Down interior.

Words

Almost every season there's something I see early on, most likely in lookbooks or online, that I pass over on initial examination; only to reassess my opinion when I rediscover the piece in the flesh. The first time I saw this particular vest I wasn't too taken with the hood detail, and so, not being much of a vest wearer in the first place, didn't spend too much time analyzing its appeal. I have, however, spent a moment or two reexamining it recently; and my initial stance is slowly beginning to waver. Although I keep visualizing both outfits and opportunities I might have for the vest itself, I probably won't ever make up my mind which colour I prefer; which luckily for me also means I won't ever have to take back all those misguided things I might have once said.
