Engineered Garments Desert Pants

01

—01. Navy Wool.
—02. Olive Twill.

Words

Available this season in both an olive cotton twill and a navy serge wool, the Engineered Garments Desert Pant is a favourite of mine, and one of the most regularly worn pieces in my wardrobe. I've heard from people who aren't sold, but I personally think that if you pick up a classic colour, in a slightly looser fitting size, you can't really go wrong. Pockets for stuff, and on sale now at The Bureau.

Ten C at The Bureau

01

Images

—01. Olive Drab Parka.
—02. Dark Grey Winter Liner.

Words

Ever since the rumours began that Paul Harvey had returned from his self-imposed designing exile, I was eager to discover more about the new line he would be launching with fellow Stone Island and CP Company alumni Alessandro Pungetti. Once the images appeared online last fall, I was instantly impressed with the refined back-to-basics approach the pair had taken to their outerwear brand. Re-imagining classics that have been altered for improved fit and constructions, Ten C also employs the use of custom fabrics produced in Japan and finished in Italy on all of their products. The removable liner, which is available for purchase and addition to any of this season's pieces, is a nice touch, and while the price may well be prohibitive, the craftsmanship, quality and attention to detail can be in no doubt. The Ten C website is also worth a few minutes of your time; here you can listen to the designer Paul Harvey discuss each and every piece in the brand's minimal 7 piece, 4 colour, 1 fabric collection.

Crescent Down Works at The Bureau

—01. Olive.
—02. Navy.

Words

The Bureau have recently received their first delivery of Crescent Down Works for Fall. The pop of colour provided by the burgundy interiors is a nice addition to their classic styles this season, and as Ryan mentioned yesterday: it's hard to go wrong with navy or olive at any time of year. I've personally always liked the Down Shirt, finding it a nice balance between a traditional outerwear piece and a classic over shirt; my preferred Fall layer. Both these styles however look more than adequate for the impending New York winter; a brutality that feels closer to arrival as each day passes.

Inis Meain Crew Neck Sweater

01

Images

—01. Navy.
—02. Graphite.

Words

I don't own a lot of different things, but I do like to have a selection of variations on a theme. The plain wool crew neck is a prime example. When it's colder I wear one almost everyday so it's best to have a few different options. Margaret Howell knitwear is always great, but I just came across these Inis Meain sweaters; made in Ireland from a blend of merino and cashmere, they look very good too.

Alden Suede Moc Toe for The Bureau

01

Images

—01. Exclusively make up for The Bureau.

Words

The Bureau have just released a new make up from Alden. While the boots might not be your ideal summer shoe, they are pretty nice looking and the combination of the suede and the plantation crepe sole look great together.

Tricker's for The Bureau Woodland Polo Chukka

01

Images

—01. Wedge natural crepe sole with a wide trim and barbour welt.

Words

I haven't seen too many chukka boots from Tricker's myself, but the general shape of these special make-ups for The Bureau look quite nice. I think the silhouette of the upper is very nice, and it feels nicely refined, but the more rugged crepe sole makes it still feel casual. The crepe looks a bit bulky in the images, but I think once you're wearing them, and it wears down a little, it would look perfect.

RRL @ The Bureau

01

Images

—01. Officer field chino.
—02. Shawl collar cardigan.

Words

It seems like a few UK retailers have picked up RRL in the last season or two - which is good news. It's one of the more rare menswear brands and you have to dig a little to find it because it isn't that widely available. In light of that, it's interesting to see a few shops putting images online. I can't imagine it will hurt the brand in the long run, and it's nice to see a little more of the product if you don't live in one of the few cities where it's available.
