Warehouse Rough-out Ring Belt

Words

Warehouse continue to grow their collection with a nice addition of leather accessories this spring. The ring belt has always been a favorite of mine, but only from afar. I haven't found the right one for me, so I haven't actually started wearing one yet. I quite like the simple touch of using the rough side of the leather on the front and back of this version, along with the clean stitch details.

Heller's Cafe Knit Football Jersey

—01. Inspired by a 1930s football jersey.

Words

The Heller's Cafe collection has continued to impress and this spring includes some really nice pieces. Although they look simple at first, its the quality and small details, along with the fabric choice and top notch production by Warehouse that really set them apart. I think it takes handling a product like this to really get a good sense of its value. This football shirt is one of the few pieces I've yet to see in person, but I'm hoping to get a look soon.

Warehouse x Crescent Down Works

—01. Available in tan, olive and brown.

Words

Warehouse have recently updated their website with a few of their fall collaborations. They've put together a range products with Seattle-based Crescent Down Works, including a variety of great looking down vests. Most companies just pick from Crescent Down Works' stock fabrics but Warehouse has gone well beyond that and supplied a nice, very autumnal corduroy in a selection of colors. The tan is my favorite but it also comes in olive and brown.

Warehouse 15th Anniversary Jeans

—01. 15th Anniversary Limited Edition.

—03. Made in Japan.

Words

After producing some of the finest garments in the world for 15 years, Warehouse are celebrating their anniversary with a special pair of jeans due for release in October. Made from a rinsed 14 oz. denim, they feature a combination of details the brothers have used over the years. One of my favorites is the cotton flannel pocket bags. These were originally added to provide warmth, but they also look great, and it's often those subtle details that really take a pair of jeans to the next level.

Heller's Cafe x Warehouse Tees

Sometimes it's the most simple things that strike a chord. While recently visiting Heller's Cafe, I had a chance to look through the Heller's Cafe x Warehouse collection. The denim, washes and shirting were all beautifully done, but these simple athletic t-shirts are what I really loved. Yes, it's an $80 t-shirt in Japan, probably $140 in North America, but it's one fine piece of clothing and arguably the best t-shirt you'll find.

Warehouse & J.Crew

—01. LOT 403 Sweatshirt.

Words

Probably my favorite thing that J.Crew is doing right now is their work with Warehouse. The Japanese company is one of the best in the world when it comes to classic reproductions. Both pairs of jeans look beautiful in person and have the same single rinse wash. I have always loved the cinch back so the 700J model would be my choice if I was in the market for another pair of jeans right now. The sweatshirt looks great as well, but there is only one size available and it's worth trying on before purchasing. It fits quite small and definitely stays true to its 50s athletic reference. That said, if it fits, add some boots and a military jacket to the mix and you're all set for the fall.

—03. Limited to 18 pieces.

Words

Heller's Cafe has had a large impact on North American brands as one of the leading vintage showrooms in the US. Designers, directors and creatives have been making the trip out to Seattle for years to visit the acclaimed showroom and to get inspired by what Larry has found. More recently, Heller's Cafe have been collaborating with Japan's Warehouse on a number of items to build up what is one of the more interesting vintage inspired collections available. This summer the two brands produced these 'Side Buckle Work Pants' in a special wash for J.Crew. The pants are limited to 18 pairs and will be available at J.Crew in New York as of today.

Warehouse x Heller’s Cafe BD Shirt

—01. Indigo Dot pattern, Made in Japan.

Words

Warehouse’s ongoing relationship with vintage company Heller’s Cafe always seems to result in great pieces of vintage reproduction that I’d happily add to my wardrobe. One I’ve been eyeing lately is this deep blue, heavy cotton shirt with printed dots at Blue in Green. The dotted workshirt is a somewhat unique pattern and a nice reference point which I like. The pocket configuration is perfectly simple and I’m always a fan of little details like run-off stitching. The collar seems a bit pointy and long as it’s done up here, but once washed and worn it would be fine.
