Post Overalls 5-Pocket Cords

Info

—01. Available in sand and sage.

Words

Post Overalls aren't especially known for their corduroy pants, but these 5-pocket bedford cords are some of the best I've seen this fall. While the sand color might be a little bit light for the dead of winter, I think they look great on a crispy, cool, dry wintery day.

—01. Issue 1.
—02. Akio Nishimoto.

Words

The LA based concept gallery and store IKO IKO, which focuses on high craft and design pieces, has just released the first issue of a new online journal entitled BLEACHED BLEACHED; which has been launched as a way to join the spirit behind the space with work by artists they admire. The first issue "Untitled" is by the Japanese photographer Akio Nishimoto, who's work is described as "using a variety of old and new digital camera technology", and who's image-making "shares the texture around a day, unfolding and folding back in".

Red Wing Irish Setter

Info

—01. Image via ACL.

Words

The re-release of Red Wing's classic Irish Setter leather was all over Japan. The brighter colored boots feel great and the color looks amazing in person. I also like the stamp used on the vintage inspired models. Unfortunately these won't be coming to our part of the market for a couple of seasons at least.

Rhodia Mouse Pad

Info

—01. Comes with 30 sheets.

Words

While in Japan I spotted this Rhodia mouse pad and couldn't resist the temptation of a semi-useful, nice looking piece of stationery. Their notepads are great, and easy to find, but I hadn't seen the mouse pad before. They have a sticky back so the traction is good on your desk, and they make for a convenient and functional notepad.

—01. Illustrator Mimoe.
—02. Photo of illustrated cut-out.

Words

The Porter Classic Gallery is one of their three small spaces within the International Arcade which nestled beneath the train tracks of Tokyo's Ginza neighbourhood. The space is home to monthly installations curated by Leo Yoshida. Coming off of a great Military Pop themed show last month, December features a really nice exhibit called Kage which is a collaboration between illustrator Mimoe and photographer Yanojin. Mimoe's handmade cuttings of her whimsical illustrations have been further brought to life by macro photos by Yanojin. The result is some really nice photographs of small scale life scenes which will be on display until the 29th of December.

Corona at Extra

—01. Fadeless Jacket.
—02. Game Jacket.

Words

Almost impossible to find outside of Japan, Corona have been producing some great pieces for several seasons now. A relative hidden gem, the brand makes hunting and workwear inspired clothing that definitely deserves more attention this side of the North Pacific. Exceptional fits, and great fabric choices certainly make them worthy of consideration, and Extra in New York has recently received very limited sizes and quantities of the the Game Jacket in Harris Tweed. The price on these is unfortunately high, made in Japan and imported to the US with the current Yen Vs. Dollar exchange rate does not bode too well for those looking for a bargain, but for anyone with some money to burn they certainly come highly recommended.

Words

Margaret Howell's knitwear is often the highlight of the collection. While not the most impressive of pieces, the ribbed knit caps offer a nice break from many of the cable options on the market.

Look: Flight Blues

Info

—01. Nice and simple.

Words

There is a certain piece that stands out in this generally simple ensemble. While the simple combination of blues, classic straight leg chinos and a good pair of boots is always good, the A-2 flight jacket by The Real McCoy's is the kind of jacket that can make almost anybody look like a man.
