Common Projects Brown Suede Achilles

01

Info

—01. Rich chocolate brown suede.

Words

The Achilles from Common Projects never needs much of an update, and although there is a more interesting premium model this fall, these brown suede low tops look pretty good. They are a nice fall sneaker and the tones work very nicely, offering an alternative to the white sneaker, as well as a desert boot.

Sassafras Transplant Shirt

01

—01. Large chest pockets.
—02. Useful side pockets.

Words

Great over a white t-shirt in the summer or as an overshirt in the fall, the multi-pocket shirt/jacket is always a uselful item to have around. Sassafras is particularly good when it comes to these kind of garments and this model is a personal favourite.

Nigel Cabourn Everest Parka - Superdenim Exclusive

—01. Navy exterior.
—02. Olive interior.

Words

Arguably Cabourn's most iconic piece, this season's Everest Parka has started to arrive in stores around the world. Made in Yorkshire from 100% British Ventile, these jackets, first seen in 2003, have received a series of slight tweaks over the years ensuring that each new edition is an improvement on the last. Beyond that, colour also plays an important part in keeping the garment fresh. In this spirit Superdenim is offering six of these parkas in navy blue - a colour that's never been used before, and won't be available anywhere else.

Available exclusively at Superdenim

45rpm Fall '11 Lookbook

01

Images

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

Words

45rpm lookbooks are always very well executed, but this season's is particularly good. Although location usually plays an important role, the Fall '11 edition is shot entirely in the studio, divided into sections by different backdrops - a simple approach, but one that works really well and maintains a strong focus on the people and the clothing. As always, there's lots of smiles and jovial poses, and an array of great looking new pieces. View the lookbook in full by clicking on the link below.

Shaggy Dog for Present

01

Images

—01. Purple.
—02. Navy.

Words

Present have just received a selection of Shaggy Dog sweaters. These combed Shetland classics have been a staple at J.Press since the late 60s, but it's great to see them in London and in five different colours too. I like a mohair sweater in the winter, but these are an altogether warmer option, and a little less itchy which is always good.

White Mountaineering Nordic Pullover

01

Images

—01. Green.
—02. Red.

Words

There's no shortage of patterned knitwear around this season, but very little of it offers anything better or more interesting than that produced by traditional manufacturers for decades. This, however, is one of the exceptions. White Mountaineering have been making these sweaters for a few seasons now and not only are they incredibly good quality, but the intricacy of the pattern, particularly in circling the yoke, elevates them far beyond the run of the mill.

Le Labo Santal 26 for Neighbour

01

Image

—01. Le Labo Santal 26.

Words

Another nice scented candle option, this time made by Le Labo for Neighbour. Poured by hand in New York using soy wax, Santal 26 is an "aristocratic scent that gives off a gentle, smokey, and leathery fragrance."
