It's no secret that I'm a big fan of Wtaps. I don't own too many of their products as a lot of them don't fit with my general style, but the brand has always resonated with me in some way. I'm not entirely sure why, but I think it has something to do with their overall attention to detail and the depth of reference that surrounds everything they do. If you aren't aware of how much thought goes into the brand, or simply like seeing behind the scenes, the Wtaps blog is a good place to spend some time.

I stumbled across this site while searching for a particular Sassafras shirt, completely forgot about the shirt and spent the next 25 minutes browsing around and dragging images onto my desktop. You should do the same.

I've always wanted to have the SNS Herning NAVAL sweater in a plain color. This fall the piece is available in some classic versions sans stripes. This is a great shade of blue and the silver buttons look perfect on the shoulder.

Nepenthes Asymmetric Gibson by Tricker's

—01. Burgundy.

—04. Navy.

Words

If you want a traditional brogue these probably aren't for you. If, on the other hand, you want something a little more unusual, they might be worth tracking down. More and more brands are collaborating with classic shoemakers, but few are producing anything genuinely unique. Nepenthes, however, are one of the exceptions and this is always evident in their work with Tricker's. Asymmetric toe pieces may seem like an odd twist, but they give the shoe a subtle character, and combined with a suede upper, it's one I'm definitely a fan of.

Richard Serra's Junction / Cycle at the Gagosian

—01. Cycle.

Words

Two new large scale works by Richard Serra are currently on display at the Gagosian Gallery and well worth an hour or so of your time if you happen to be anywhere close by. Junction / Cycle are both sculptures created in the artists preferred medium of waterproof steel, and in this case the oxidization of the material has turned the sculptures a striking bright orange colour, which offers plenty to those passing through the maze of the pieces themselves. Serra says the sculptures were designed as much with the space between them in mind, as with the form and materials used: "I consider space to be a material. The articulation of space has come to take precedence over other concerns. I attempt to use sculptural form to make space distinct."

Weaver Moccasin Ruddy Duck

—01. Dark Brown.
—02. Tan.

Words

I'd been a little on the fence about this shoe brand, not being overly familiar or taken with the designs until now. I like the reference and the idea behind the brand, but it's always seemed to me: if you want Clarks, buy Clarks. Having said that, I can appreciate the details, changes, and improvements the brand has made to a handful of classic designs; with the small burst of colour on the Ruddy Duck model recently received at Silver & Gold being one such appealing tweak.

Levi's Vintage Clothing Corduroy Western Shirts

—01. Tan.
—02. Burgundy.

Words

I like corduroy and I like western shirts, why not put them together? LVC have produced a couple of great looking, simple westerns in some nice shades of this great fall fabric. I particularly like the tan color as it would look great with some washed denim.
