—01. Black suede Gibson.
This winter we've made another run of shoes with Mark McNairy, and also added our first boot to the offering. Sticking with the leather split Dainite sole theme, we've put together two rather refined footwear options. The black suede Gibson and the snuff suede Plain Toe boot are now available in-store and online.
—01. Made in Japan.
—02. Indigo and Moss.
A new batch of our Superior Labor socks have just arrived. They've become one of our best selling items and we couldn't be happier with the latest colours. Made from 90% Japanese cotton and knitted on a low gauge machine that was made in Japan during the 60s and 70s, these socks are one of the finest melange options around.
Arguably two of the best colors invented, especially when it comes to clothing. The Stockroom always has a nice variety of garments in olive and navy, but this fall in particular we have some especially nice pieces in these staple shades. Some are collaborations, some are standard issue and some are classics.
—01. Black rough out leather.
Viberg's popularly outside of Japan has risen rapidly in the past couple of years, and being able to work so closely with our local neighbors still feels like a special privilege. The family run factory are just as nice to work with, and this fall we decided to make our first real boot with Viberg. Made with the tried and true Vibram Christy, the thick black rough out leather is nicely accented by the natural welt, and all black stitching. The boots came out great, the pattern, the silhouette and the materials all work perfectly together for one of my favorite special make ups yet.
—01. Woody Shirt & Cruiser Shirt.
This project was inspired by a feature about Woolrich Woolen Mills we did for the fourth issue of the magazine. The story focused on Daiki Suzuki, the brand's designer for the first ten seasons, and Mark McNairy, his successor. Following on from that we decided to make two special Woolrich Woolen Mills pieces - the Cruiser Shirt from Daiki's time at the helm, and the Woody Shirt from Mark's first collection. Produced in two weights of navy blue wool, and offset by mother of pearl buttons, the shirts offer a classic aesthetic and showcase what Woolrich is best known for: beautifully made American wool.
• Inverallen for Inventory Items Moss Cap
• Margaret Howell Merino/Cashmere Sweater
• Beams Plus Oxford BD Shirt
• Beams Plus HBT Fatigue Pants
• Deadstock Swedish Army Belt
• Red Wing 6" Suede Moc Toe
• Wm J Mills Ice Bag
It's now the second week of September and although its still pretty warm in Vancouver, I can't help but look forward to some early fall attire. The knitwear from Margaret Howell, oxford shirts, fatigue pants and Red Wings all feel like they are ready for some wear. No matter the season however, olives, blues and suedes seem to be a continuous thread. They always seem to work well together, and especially when a couple more layers are involved.

The Maine Guide Shoe was first introduced to the western market last fall when we collaborated with Yuketen. The time around, our special make-up features a khaki suede upper, natural leather welt and a black Vibram sole. The combination of the light suede, dark sole and chocolate brown laces offers a refreshing take on one of our favorite Yuketen models. Our version, with the heel tab removed, also includes the Yuketen for Inventory Items stamp on the interior, and comes in a natural herringbone twill shoe bag.
