Nepenthes Melange Socks

—01. Salt and pepper, and purple.
—02. Made in Japan.

Words

Nepenthes do a lot of things right, at least in my opinion. One of the constants is their melange socks which they seem to do all year round. Fortunately with the opening of the Nepenthes store in New York this fall, they might actually be easy to purchase in the near future.

Nepenthes Fishing Oxfords

01

Details

—01. Available in black and brown leather, and beige suede.

The ripple sole oxford is a shoe that I've had a bit of a crush on for a few seasons now. New versions from Yuketen and Russell Moccasin, and old factory samples from Alden offer a really unique and great looking option. Nepenthes, however, are arguably the masters of creatively interpreting American products for the Japanese market. This might just be another case of what they do best, because I don't see anybody around these parts wearing the ripple sole oxford - that's a challenge.

Engineered Garments Workaday Tote

—01. Subtle contrast stitching.
—02. Removable shoulder strap.
—03. Tough off-white canvas.

Words

Two things that I really like, Engineered Garments and canvas bags. The Workaday canvas collection has been around for seasons now but the tote bag continues to elude me. It's mostly the price point of around $225 that has kept me from buying it, but it's always on my mind and at the top of my list. The Workaday range from Engineered Garments is probably my favorite capsule collection. It consists of great products across the board, and this tote bag is one of my favorites. I will definitely purchase it one of these days, but in the meantime you will also catch a glimpse of it in our spring issue of Inventory as well.
