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.

Another nice looking longwing make-up by the folks at Leffot. They continue to work with Alden to create a nice range of exclusive footwear. These longwings are perfect in terms of the season, tough chamois leather, combined with the commando sole make for a tough wearing winter dress shoe.

—01. 100% Silk.
—02. Made in Japan.

Words

My friend put me on to GOOD OL', a great Japanese brand that had its inception around four years ago. They are making some great products and these hand printed silk scarves are just an example of the quality goods they are producing. Adorned with a four leaf clover print, these scarves are a great accessory to add a bit of colour to your fit this fall/winter.

Common Projects / New Editions

—01. SS12 line up.
—02. Via Tres Bien.

Words

Common Projects have become a household name for clean, well made sneakers. It didn't take long, and now, as their main line has increased in quality and price, they are looking for ways to break into the lower end of the market. Ideally offering well designed, well made and simple sneakers, again, the new range called 'New Editions' will be available next spring.
