Zero 1 Magazine - Documented

01

Info

—01. Hans Ulrich Obrist by Jonnie Craig.

Words

A new issue of the online magazine Zero 1 rises from the internet ether. Always worth spending a good while peeking around, the current issue's theme is "Documented". Perhaps the highlight of the whole issue, at least as far as I'm concerned - and one that sits perfectly well within the theme itself - is a great interview with the conversational and curatorial legend Hans Ulrich Obrist. As a longtime personal hero of mine, it was great to read something new on someone who has written, listened to, and said so much. Don't shy away from the rest of the content either, because there's a lot of other great stuff in there too, including work by and on: Maia Ruth Lee and Peter Sutherland, Confetti System, Ari Marcopoulos, Steven Shearer, and Andy Beach of Reference Library fame, to name but a few.

Russell Moccasin Country Chukka

—01. Chromexcel Leather Trim.
—02. Suede Upper.

Words

They're back, available in larger sizes, and slightly tweaked for fall. Ryan blogged these back in the summer, and the new colourway has just arrived. Two reasons to buy them: 1. They're a Russell Moccasin, and 2. They have fall written all over them. I've personally found myself cursing the lack of middle-choice winter footwear in my wardrobe recently. I have dry weather options, and wet and snowy weather options, but I don't have that perfect down-the-middle shoe that works well in both scenarios; should you head out in the sun, only to find yourself trekking home in the rain. These shoes are an exclusive make-up for Midland Ship, and I want them. Quite a bit.

Sassafras Tiger Camo Fall Leaf Pants

—01. Front.
—02. Back.

Words

Sassafras have produced this pant in a number of different weights and fabrics over the years, and it's always a style that catches my eye. That's especially the case this fall. The use of tiger camo on the classic multi-pocket gardening pant make this version one of my favourite renditions yet.

Alden Plain Toe Oxford

01

Images

—01. Oiled Suede.
—02. Earth color.
—03. Good year sole.

Words

This light weight Alden Good year sole makes for a good option on the oxford. It's been used frequently in Japan on boots, and also at Blackbird. The low cut oxford suits it nicely and the 'earth' colored oiled suede makes for a nice fall option.

Tricker's Repello Suede Brogue

01

Info

—01. Especially made for TBS.

Words

Tres Bien Shop have received a fresh batch of fall footwear made especially for them by Tricker's. Of the selection, these Repello brogues are definitely my favorites. The scotch guard suede is great for the weather, and still looks just as nice. The comando sole wouldn't be my first choice, but I think it does work nicely with this shoe. All they need is a change of laces and they should be all set.

Engineered Garments Knit Ties

01

Info

—01. Jacquard & Snowflake.

Words

I'm not always a big fan of Engineered Garments ties, but the knit neckwear they made this fall is some of my favorite. The jacquard pattern especially is a bit more subtle than the fair isle ties and it goes great with ginghams and stripes. It was an item that I didn't expect to pick up, but after a couple wears, I'm glad I did.

Woolrich Woolen Mills Montegomery Coat

01

Images

—01. Navy & burgundy.
—02. Collar detail.
—03. Toggle detail.

Words

While I've always liked duffle coats, I have never owned or worn one myself. Maybe it's because the length doesn't seem to work for me. Whatever the case, the use of navy and burgundy are a nice combination and no details seem to be overdone. Of course the stripes aren't for everyone, but they offer a nice alternative to the classic navy.
