Nanamica presented one of their strongest collections to date this fall, and as always it was the outerwear that really stood out. This multi-tone military-inspired jacket is particularly good, its neat cut and durable fabric giving a classic piece a more contemporary feel.

Over the course of 2012 we took on one of our biggest projects, directing and producing this book, Thirty Years of Research in Style: WP Lavori in Corso. It was a pleasure to work with such an incredible company and we're thankful that WP Lavori allowed us so much input and access during the process. The result is a 256 page hardcover book that delves in-depth into a unique and interesting company that has recently celebrated their 30th anniversary.

It was the first trip to Berlin for the Inventory team. Fortunately we had a good city guide with us and were able to find a number of great neighbourhoods, shops and restaurants. We also stopped in at Bread & Butter to visit some of our friends and favorite brands from WP Lavori and Nigel Cabourn to Viberg and The Real McCoy's.

—01. Italian public transportation.

Words

After a few very hot days in Florence, we are back in London before flying out to Vancouver. The cool weather is somewhat of a relief, but the heat didn't stop us from enjoying the latest collections and seeing some of our friends from around the world. Our usual favorites produced great new pieces with exciting new materials, styles and fabrications - leaving us already looking forward to next spring.

Words

Over the weekend Mark McNairy and WP Lavori took the Woolrich Woolen Mills collection to Milan for the brands official presentation. It was one of my favorite collections in Florence, so its nice to see a preview of the pieces in a slightly different light here. With the use of some cotton twills, chambray, mesh and some great prints, the collection is well rounded, offering a unique twist on the Americana classics, while injecting a fresh feel and an opportunity to buy the collection in a few different ways - sadly, not in Canada though.
