The Real McCoy's Military Sweat

01

Images

—01. 100% Cotton.
—02. Made in the USA.

Words

The Real McCoy's military selection for this Fall/Winter collection is pretty amazing. There are some beautifully crafted, army inspired garments. There should be no arguing that the 12oz McCoy's sweatshirt is one of the most comfortable and durable pieces we carry in the stockroom. This printed version may not be as subtle but the motifs are unique and it's visually appealing.

Remi Relief Denim Jacket

01

Images

—01. 12.5oz Woven Denim.
—02. Natural Indigo.

Words

Hand crafted using an old shuttle loom, this denim is washed but not too faded. Designer Yutaka Goto pays close attention to single stitched sewing techniques and specific dye recipes. It is a more modern fit than the classic jean jacket but the colour and weight are both really nice. I find a jacket like this an easy layering piece during the cooler months.

—02. Funny Pouch.

Words

One of the most anticipated items this fall is the Northwood jacket by Engineered Garments. It's classic three color options make it one of the best pieces of outerwear this season, and one of the closest renditions of the Birdshooter since its disappearance in the fall of 2010. Mt. Rainier offer another great selection of handy, functional and well designed accessories.

Tokyo Snaps: Part Two

01

Info

—01. Crew on the move, Daikanyama.

Words

It's been another couple of days in Tokyo and the schedule is picking up. We spent all of yesterday with BEAMS, meeting with Kenny of Beams Plus and a rare interview with Mr. Yo Shitara, the president of the legendary company. Besides a handful of interviews done, and more to come, we're trying to see as many shops as possible and go to as many restaurants with no English menus as we can.

McKinlays Comfort Sole Brogue

01

Info

—01. Specially made for Nepenthes.

Words

I haven't seen many shoes by McKinlays, ever. Nepenthes is the only shop and brand that I have seen work with the footwear specialist, and as usually they have done a good job. I like their slip on brogue toe model, but its the suede 'comfort sole brogue' that is probably the easiest to wear.

The Real McCoy's USN Mug

01

Info

—01. Deadstock USN mug, circa 1940-50.

Words

As a special offering to some of The Real McCoy's retailers, the Japanese brand opened up a crate from their vintage archive to release these deadstock USN mugs. While they aren't overwhelming to look at online, in person they are beautiful, and a nice design classic for those who appreciate the details.

Arc'teryx Maka 2

01

Info

—01. Spotted at BEAMS and Function Junction.

Words

One thing I've been looking for since day one in Tokyo is a 'perfect' hip pouch. While it might be a stretch to expect perfection, it has been tough to find something that's the right size, right fabric, right color, has good straps and fits what I need. So far I think the Arc'teryx option, all the way from our backyard, is leading the race. I enjoy the companies use of color in Veilance and the mainline, so its no surprise to see some playful combinations on the Maka 2.
