Birkenstock London

—01. Nubuck leather cocoa.

Words

The London is one of the Birkenstock models that still haven't made it over to our market. It's arguably one of the best as well, and the combinations of two-tone suede and leather-suede models are especially nice.

This fall Engineered Garments have made a handful of double faced accessories including pocket squares and scarves. Featuring classic paisley and polkadot patterns the greys and blues work nicely together. Not quite as unique, but just as expertly executed, the polkadot knit ties come in grey and navy blue.

Stone Island Shadow Project Insulator Vest

—01. Iridescent nylon polyester.

Words

I find a lot of vests on the market to be too heavily filled, and they become too thick to wear under a jacket nicely. Stone Island Shadow Project have produced this insulator jacket in the past and its back again this fall. With an interesting texture in the quilting, it provides the warmth without the bulk, functioning perfectly as a mid-layer.

01-02. Wool 75% , Nylon 24% , Polyurethane 1%.

Words

Nanamica's use of technical fabrications for daily use can't be denied. While the price may be prohibitive for some, the seamless marriage of functionality and fit is undoubtably superior.

Woolrich Woolen Mills Stripe Necktie

01

Images

01-02. 85% Wool, 15% Nylon.

Words

I haven't been wearing too many neckties lately but this mostly wool striped tie by Mark McNairy features a nice combination of colours. Often wool ties can create a bulky knot, but the fabric seems to work nicely for this fall accessory.

Words

After recently reading Let My People Go Surfing, I've been increasingly interested in the story of Yvon Chouinard and Patagonia. The product itself is great, but the story behind the people, the man and the company as a whole is even more impressive.

Margaret Howell Sunglasses Case

01-02. 100% leather.

Words

Simple, useful and conker. Two of those are great attributes for just about anything, and the conker leather happens to work perfectly for this product in particular.
