01. Made in Japan.

Words

With all of the end of season sales going on, there's no shortage of 'deals' to be had, but that doesn't always equate to good purchases. Nitty Gritty, however, does a great job with their selections, and this simple Wtaps hat is an easy one for just about anybody.

MHL Heavy Leather Monkey Boots

01. Handmade soft suspension sole.

Words

Margaret Howell does an outstanding job of championing the most storied companies from the United Kingdom and these monkey boots, made by Solovair, are a prime example. The British firm, founded 1881, famously handled the production of Dr. Martens for 35 years and still manufactures footwear in Northamptonshire.

Church's Ely Calf Jodphur

01

Image

–01. Rubber sole.

Words

I've highlighted several pairs of Church's Chelsea boots in the past but these are a more refined version, likely to look nice with a slim trouser. Made in Italy from calf leather, they feature a rubber sole, elastic side gores and a pull tab at the rear for a classic appearance that will never deteriorate in aesthetic appeal.

Church's Black Rois Calf McCarthy Boot

01

Images

01. Made in England.
02. Calf leather.

Words

As fall edges nearer, boots are becoming more of a reality than a distant memory. This style from Church's is probably my favourite option that I've seen recently. The thick sole and lower height gives them a slight Blundstone feeling, but with more premium materials and construction.

02. Moving Tee.

Words

Bianca Chandôn has been picked up by a handful of great select shops around the world, and Nitty Gritty is the latest to receive a shipment of T-shirts from the upstart skate brand. Being the height of summer, it's the perfect time for graphics and cotton.

Mackintosh Dunkeld LP SS Cotton Coat

—01. Beige.
—02. Black.

Words

I'd been on the lookout for a tan coloured coat for a couple of seasons, and after a fair bit of searching online and in-person, this Mackintosh came out the winner. While I like the brand's classic rubberized cotton outerwear, it's not ideal all of the time. Fortunately this spring they commissioned Loro Piana to produce a water-resistant cotton, and combined with their iconic Dunkeld style, it's immediately become one of my favourite garments.

Spalwart Marathon Trail

Image

—01. Calf skin lining.

Words

The selection of premium sneakers available these days is quite extensive. There's a lot to choose from, but Swedish brand Spalwart stands out because their products possess an authentic, vintage look and a rugged beauty all of their own. The Marathon Trail, inspired by a '70s fell running shoe, is a really attractive model that looks great in this dark colourway.
