—01. A 'stocked' selection.
When the new collections arrive, it's always exciting to see the shop change over and the new products all displayed together. We're fortunate enough to have a top notch merchandiser working for us, so the shop floor looks especially sharp at the moment. Whether its the magazines, accessories, staples or seasonal items, everything feels like it goes together perfectly and feels natural in the Stockroom, a feat easier said than done.
I don't own a lot of different things, but I do like to have a selection of variations on a theme. The plain wool crew neck is a prime example. When it's colder I wear one almost everyday so it's best to have a few different options. Margaret Howell knitwear is always great, but I just came across these Inis Meain sweaters; made in Ireland from a blend of merino and cashmere, they look very good too.

We just had our one-year anniversary of the Inventory Stockroom this past weekend. We decided not to make a fuss about it, but we're still happy to have had a fairly successful first year of brick and mortar retail. We appreciate the support from everybody online, overseas and in Vancouver and look forward to a few more years in Vancouver, and hopefully even somewhere new within the next year or two.

The images are already starting to do the rounds, but they are too nice not to post, especially on a Sunday. Margaret Howell, as a person, and a brand, present one of the most cohesive aesthetics I've ever seen, and it just happens to be my taste. These photographs of Margaret's country home on the coast of Suffolk are rather beautiful. The tones, the items, the subject overall - have a look over at the NY Times magazine for the rest of the images.
—01. Walkers jacket.
—02. Gingham work shirt.
—03. Ticket pocket trousers.
Margaret Howell's spring collection arrived from London a few days ago. The collection is quite large, but as usual we took a close look and edited down our buy to build a nice cohesive look and feel that would blend nicely with our own favorite items, as well as those on the rails in the shop. The gingham workshirt is a great color, and looks nice alongside any other shades of blue. The pieces all look and feel better than I remember when we saw them last summer. The Walkers jacket is another standout, along with the trousers which are some of the best the brand has produced.
