Visvim FW11 Items

01

Info

—01. Beautifully dyed and hand made.

Words

Visvim has begun to release images of their Fall-Winter 2011 collection online and among the selection there are some great items. These are a couple of my favorites previewed last week. The indigo dyed pieces, patched shirts and shoes and really nice color palette struck me in a pleasant way. While I haven't seen any new footwear I'm dying to get, the accessories are especially looking great so far.

JC Walkers Work Oxford

01

Images

—01. Navy suede.
—02. Multi-tone laces.

Words

There are plenty of good options for oxford work boots and a lot of people have their preference when it comes to footwear, a strong brand association or recognition within the framework of that given company. I like stumbling across new brands. JC Walkers makes a nice oxford for a relatively affordable price. The colour of suede is beautiful and the two-tone laces are a subtle addition that works well with this shoe I think. They also come in a few other colour-ways that are worth checking out.

01

Info

—01. First shipment from the fall collection.

Words

It might be the earliest Fall delivery ever, but it doesn't mean we weren't excited to receive it. The new Engineered Garments collection is definitely one of our favorites of the season. The first shipment includes the Bedford jacket in olive and navy wool, and duck canvas. Also, there is a Field Parka in olive and black, with wool herringbone lining and the Brookline reversible jacket in navy wool. For shirting, we have the blue floral print 19th Century and a selection of Workaday BD shirts in white oxford, blue oxford and chambray. To round off the shipment, there are a couple of pocket squares, cotton scarves and some beautiful knit ties.

Nike Lunarglide+ 3

01

Info

—01. Anthracite/Chilling Red-Black-Volt.

Words

Once Nike previewed the new Lunarglide+ I knew I was going to pick up a pair. The only problem was that the girls colors were a bit better than the guys and Niketown in New York was completely sold out in my size, in mens and womens. Fortunately the demand at home isn't quite as high, so I was able to pick up a pair the other day. After a few days of wearing them, I'm still blown away at how comfortable they are each time I put them on. They feel great, look really nice and as silly as it sounds, having a great product like this can actually be motivation to get out and pound the streets.

In Stock: Truck Works

01

Info

—01. Truck Works Vol. 2, Vol. 3 & Making Truck.

Words

Along with providing a cohesive and thoughtful selection of garments, we've always been proud to offer an interesting mix of printed material at Inventory. One of the most exciting publications to arrive lately is this series of books by Truck. Their main focus is creating a beautiful selection of furniture in Japan. Casual, completely, understated and functional - the brand is very well thought through and the products are outstanding. Because not everyone can make it to their shops in Japan, they've created a series of books documenting their work, and also the culture and lifestyle surround their brand and inspiration. These books feature beautiful photography, an interesting behind the scenes look and offer insight into the playful personality behind the products.

Life Saver: Clarks Weaver Shoe

01

Info

—01. Special thanks to Mr. Watts.

Words

Our trip to New York last week went well, except I was dissapointed to find all Lunarglide 3's sold out in my size when I arrived. I had only brought one pair of shoes on the trip and it turned out they were slightly too small. My feet were killing mid-trip until our gracious host offered me a pair of Clarks to wear. I had always kind of liked the Weaver shoe, but I'd never even tried them on before. From now on, they will have a special place in my heart and my feet were thankful to spend a few days on the crepe soles.

South 2 West 8 Rugby Shirt

01

Images

—01. Green with dark red stripe.
—02. Collar detail.
—03. Underarm detail.

Words

South 2 West 8 offers a great rendition of the traditional rugby shirt in two colourways. The attention to detail and durability of this piece really give it an authentic feel. The classic rugby collar tends to be white but the natural cotton blends in nicely with stripes in both colours. I really don't have anything like this but I think it would blend well with a pair of chinos or fatigues.
