Stone Island Shadow Project Stealth Jacket

01

Info

—01. Raso-R Windstopper® Hardshell.
—02. Concealed interior pockets.

Words

The Stealth Jacket is arguably the definitive Stone Island Shadow piece. The MKII version is this season's offering, and is perhaps the best to date. As with all Shadow Project pieces, the exterior shows a seemingly minimalist design, while an unfastening of the jacket itself reveals an abundance of well considered details. The Stealth Jacket has a total of 11 different pockets; only two of which are visible from the outside, and, in keeping with Stone Island's philosophies, offers not only technical superiority, but also an exceptional fit. Water resistant and wind proof thanks to the Raso-R Coated outer shell, the splash of green on the interior is the perfect hidden detail to help cement this as a modern classic.

Shaggy Dog for Present

01

—01. Purple.
—02. Navy.

Words

Present have just received a selection of Shaggy Dog sweaters. These combed Shetland classics have been a staple at J.Press since the late 60s, but it's great to see them in London and in five different colours too. I like a mohair sweater in the winter, but these are an altogether warmer option, and a little less itchy which is always good.

Words

"Inspired by founder Nigo’s love of fine tailoring and his time spent with some of the world’s finest tailors on Savile Row (including Huntsman and Anderson & Sheppard), the debut range is a tight capsule collection of suits, shirts, ties, and shoes made to the highest design and production standards. The range embodies two key looks – British classic, and American classic – with all items showing a distinct influence of one or the other."

Sale Report: Present

01

Words

The sales are definitely on and in full force in most shops around the world. On one hand, I don't like to see it, and definitely not too early as it hurts the industry, the brands and the retailers. On the other hand, I am a consumer and it is great to get a good deal. Lots of shops have heavily discounted merchandise, but Present has some of the best items in decent size runs that I've seen. These are a couple of items I've been eying up this fall, but there are many more to be found.

Present FW10 Collection

01

Image

—01. 3 Button Jacket and Elbow Patch Sweater.

Words

As Ryan noted on Monday, Present have recently launched a wider range of products under their own name. They've been making small runs of items since opening, but the current offering is their first full collection. Well-rounded, compact, and sitting neatly alongside the other brands they carry, it's an impressive and reasonably priced addition to the shop's ever expanding selection. Highlights include quilted outerwear and accessories made in England, shirting, jackets and chinos in a variety of Japanese fabrics, and some great Scottish knitwear. The collection also features a range of footwear made with Tricker's, and socks by Corgi. These images are taken from a lookbook produced for a new section of the Present website and provide a hint of what's on offer. For a more detailed look at the collection as a whole, follow the link below.

Present Wool Crusiers

—01. Quilted plaid wool.
—02. Made in England.

Words

Present have been working hard over the last year to develop a solid range of products under their own brand name. We got a sneak peek back in the summer and even then, the Crusier jacket was a stand out for me. The jackets are made from warm wools, feature nice quilting through the body and arms and come in at a nice price as well. The tones and fabrics look great, classic and very wearable too. Within the collection there are a few more items that are well worth checking out as well, but I wouldn't wait around too long on these.

Present & Gwilym Davies

01

Details

—01. Gwilym at work in the Shoreditch shop.

Words

While spending a little over a week in London, we ran around a lot of the city, had several meetings and appointments and tried to fit in as much of the World Cup as possible. This definitely called for a few cups of coffee along the way. London has a very solid offering on the cafe front, especially in the East End. One of the most convenient and best cups however came from Present. For those who haven't visited the London shop, they have a small set up at the front of the store, which happens to be run by Gwilym Davies, 2009's world barista champion.
