Sanders Joel Chukka Boot

—01. Sturdy crepe sole.
—02. Made in Northampton.

Words

The Joel Chukka, Sanders' version of Hutton's Original Playboy, is a timeless English-made boot. Manufactured in Northampton by a company established in 1873, which has held numerous defence contracts over the years, the style will never lose its allure for the sole reason that it was Steve McQueen's chukka boot of choice.

Engineered Garments Hooded Down Vest

—01. Large drawstring hood.
—02. 90% Goose Down interior.

Words

Almost every season there's something I see early on, most likely in lookbooks or online, that I pass over on initial examination; only to reassess my opinion when I rediscover the piece in the flesh. The first time I saw this particular vest I wasn't too taken with the hood detail, and so, not being much of a vest wearer in the first place, didn't spend too much time analyzing its appeal. I have, however, spent a moment or two reexamining it recently; and my initial stance is slowly beginning to waver. Although I keep visualizing both outfits and opportunities I might have for the vest itself, I probably won't ever make up my mind which colour I prefer; which luckily for me also means I won't ever have to take back all those misguided things I might have once said.

Oi Polloi: Pica-Post No. 2

Words

Oi Polloi have recently released their second edition of their shop/shopping guide for the season. The Pica-Post zine was really nicely done the first time around and looks much the same for No. 2. It's definitely worth snatching if you're spending money online or making your way through Manchester.
