Weaver Moccasin Ruddy Duck

01

Images

—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.

Engineered Garments Funny Packs

—01. O.Drab.
—02. D.Brown.

Words

Engineered Garments often put out a couple of nice bags each season. Last spring the canvas duffle pack was a good piece, and this fall their 'Funny Packs' look especially good. These colors are my favorites, the size looks ideal, and the price is about what you'd expect.

01

Images

—01 & 02. Looks from the Winter '11 men's collection.

Words

Another season, another impeccably shot and styled lookbook from 45rpm. I honestly could have posted every image from their winter offering. Back outside after a stint in the studio, it looks absolutely amazing from start to finish. These are some of the highlights, but make sure you click on the link below and look through the entire thing.

Nike Gyakusou Fall-Winter '11

01 02

Images

—01. Short Sleeve T-shirt.
—02. Asymmetric Short.
—03. Short Sleeve T-shirt.
—04. Fabric Mix Short.

Words

Although I'm not the greatest runner myself, I am drawn to the Gyakusou collection each season. This fall appears to be one of the best from the preview that Firmament are giving us as well. The 'Running Monks' video was also really nicely done. The use of greys, oranges and different shades of blues all mix nicely. There's a good chance I'll pick up a couple pieces this season, unfortunately not in time for my first half-marathon this weekend, which it obviously would have made me run much faster for had I been decked from head to toe in multiple layers, zip off sleeves and a couple dozen bonded hidden pockets.

Available soon at Firmament

Huge No.086 / Nanamica Editorial 

01

Images

—01 & 02. Portraits from One Ocean, All Lands.

Words

The November issue of Huge features a short, but striking Nanamica editorial - One Ocean, All Lands - styled by Lambda Takahashi and photographed by Taro Mizutani who shot the Supreme story for Issue 04 of Inventory. It's not easy to put together something like this, but it couldn't have turned out any better, and is one of the strong points in another very good issue.

The Coast of Utopia

01

Info

—01. Hand modified housing on the Coast of Uruguay.

Words

"Cabo Polonio, a remote beach village in southeastern Uruguay, sits on a green peninsula between the Atlantic and a desert landscape of shifting sand dunes. Strewn across the grassy promontory are a single lighthouse and a few hundred whimsical dwellings. Rasta-colored flags serve as wind vanes, tinted glass bottles are embedded in walls, and exteriors are painted with pictures of suns, cow spots, rainbows and a Klimt-like rendering of a woman. One stands out as particularly fanciful. It’s more sculpture than cabin, constructed from panes of glass, wood, plastic, bamboo blinds and green plexiglass, with tall, lush plants growing out of the floor."

Denali's South Face by Riccardo Cassin

01

Images

—01. Alippi.
—02. Airoldi.

Words

These photographs, by way of An Ambitious Project Collapsing, were taken on Riccardo Cassin's first assent of Mount McKinley's South Face in 1961. This photo album was given to the American Alpine Club by Bradford Washburn in 2005, after Washburn himself had received it from Mr Cassin. The South Face, which is now known as Cassin Ridge in Riccardo's honor, is the best known technical route on the mountain, and the climb was a major landmark in Alaskan mountaineering. Cassin himself was a leading Italian mountaineer, who's prominence in the inter-war period led to over 2,500 assents, over 100 of which were firsts.
