Porter Smokey Tote

01

Images

—01. Black Cotton.
—02. Made in Japan.

Words

Porter has always been one of those brands that I've felt has a refined sense of quality and design, casual yet professional in nature, this tote bag is a perfect example of that ideal which has made the brand so successful. Individuals looking for something clean, between the lines of a briefcase and a backpack, without sacrificing masculinity, can identify with a classic tote bag. I got this bag two to three years ago and I can confidently attest to how well it has held up. The colour and texture of the bag has maintained its integrity through a ton of use. Ultimately, with a product like this, where you are using it everyday, your expectation lies within the bags functionality and longevity, I can say it has met all my standards.

Words

Head Porter Plus creates this beige CPO shirt with a brown contrast stripe for this Fall/Winter collection.

Post Overalls Burgundy Cruz Vest

01

Images

—01. Vintage Royal Calico Print.
—02. 100% Cotton & Made in the USA.

Words

I don't wear vests too often, but I appreciate the construction, details, and fabric. The Cruz Vest has been a stable in every Post Overalls collection as Takeshi draws strong references to vintage work wear pieces from past decades. The colour and pattern is everything we have come to respect and love about this brand, aesthetically simple but combined beautifully.

The Real McCoy's Military Sweat

01

—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.

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.
