Shoes Like Pottery

01

Info

—01. Natural japanese canvas, produced in a kiln.

Words

While you may not always be able to improve upon a classic, you can adapt, develop, and refine it. Thanks to a post on the frequently informative Ready For The House this week, Shoes Like Pottery are now very much on my radar. The company make impeccable canvas and rubber footwear in Japan not too dissimilar from the classic styles produced by BF Goodrich and Converse in years passed. However where these shoes differ is in the manufacturing: each pair is made at the MoonStar factory in Kurume, Japan, where the rubber is attached to the canvas shoe by baking it in a kiln.

South Willard in Brutus Magazine

This is technically old news, seeing as how this particular issue of Brutus magazine came out in July of last year, but I discovered these scans today; courtesy of the ever-reliable Reference Library, and thought it worth a post. Thankfully both the internet and back issues exist, so there's still hope for those eager to track down a hard copy of issue 713: California's Best Businesses.

MHL Kagool Parka

01

—01. Classic cut and considered details.
—02. Moss coloured, 100% cotton.

Words

The longer fitting parka is something I've always found difficult to wear. I own a couple of examples, most notably a classic A.P.C. model and last season's Storm Parka from Engineered Garments, but traditionally I'm much more comfortable with outerwear that stops around the waist. Having said that, I've always admired the classic lines a longer fitting trench or parka can give an outfit, especially when it comes to layers. The balance between various lengths, when done correctly, can give an outfit a nice sense of depth. The Kagool Parka from Margaret Howell's MHL line looks to me like a sensible wardrobe addition for anyone seeking something longer for the fall. All the details are in the right place, and nothing is fussy or over-designed. As is the case with a lot of MHL pieces, the jacket looks to fit a little on the looser, boxier side; which I happen to think actually works well on this type of garment.
