With fresh deliveries from Engineered Garments and Post Overalls, there are plenty of layering options on offer. There is a nice variety of cottons and wools with different textures and in different colours, all of which mix well together. As the fall and subsequent winter set in, a more substantial footwear option is required - which is just what the Inventory Maine Guide Shoe provides.

With the weather already starting to cool off in the shade and at night, pants and overshirts are becoming a more common occurrence. Between the fabrics of orSlow and Sassafras, these garments feel as good as they look. Yuketen's latest version of their Ranger Moc go nicely with the fatigue pants as well.

Another classic look mixing light weight summer layers with all-season staples. The Real McCoy's 41 Trouser is one of the closest in the hunt for the perfect chino, while the orSlow denim BD may just be the perfect shirt. With a mix of Japanese and American products, the quality of the Real McCoy's mixed with the character of Engineered Garments and Post Overalls offers a nice balance and interpretation of Americana.

With the weather finally turning in Vancouver it felt like the right time to highlight some of the causal items that work well outdoors. The Post Overalls fabrics are always pleasant in the summer, mand they are easily mixed with more simple items from orSlow, The Real McCoy's and Mt. Rainier Design.

One of my favorite times of the year is when you can mix garments from different seasons. A nice bit of blue, tan and olive always works well together. Cross over pieces from Post Overalls and Inverallan are still perfect in early spring, while denim and chambray from orSlow work seamlessly together. Sturdy footwear is a necessity all year around, so anytime is good for a pair of C-shade Tricker's.
—01. Nice and simple.
There is a certain piece that stands out in this generally simple ensemble. While the simple combination of blues, classic straight leg chinos and a good pair of boots is always good, the A-2 flight jacket by The Real McCoy's is the kind of jacket that can make almost anybody look like a man.

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.
