Wilson Knits

—01. Pock tees.
—02. 3/4 sleeve football tee.

Words

The next time I'm in Japan, I am definitely going to the Wilson store. The product is quite difficult to find online, even through Japanese shops, so it might just take a plane trip. But everything I've seen looks great. The simple, well made, classic looking pieces are ideal basics for anybody's closet. The sweat shirts, pocket tees, football tees, socks - all good.

Tricker's for The Bureau Woodland Polo Chukka

01

Images

—01. Wedge natural crepe sole with a wide trim and barbour welt.

Words

I haven't seen too many chukka boots from Tricker's myself, but the general shape of these special make-ups for The Bureau look quite nice. I think the silhouette of the upper is very nice, and it feels nicely refined, but the more rugged crepe sole makes it still feel casual. The crepe looks a bit bulky in the images, but I think once you're wearing them, and it wears down a little, it would look perfect.

Beams Plus Bandana Shorts

—01. Patchwork bandana shorts.

Words

Beams Plus bandanas have been extremely popular over the last year, but this spring they decided to do a little more with the nice, soft, cotton fabrics. The patchwork shorts are a great way to throw some pattern into an outfit, while still keeping it wearable, blue and not too crazy. Patchwork blazers also can look nice in the spring, but shorts are a little more manageable, since you don't have as much of the pattern, and it can be partially covered by a shirt.

Visvim High Water Chinos

—01. Navy.
—02. Khaki.

Words

Visvim chinos are one of the best items in the collection, season after season. Whether they are the full cut leg, or the high water version, the cotton is incredibly nice and the fit is great. The high water cut is a bit slimmer, and with the stitched cuff, you can even let it out to get some more length out of them if you'd like.

Margaret Howell

—03. Margaret Howell.
—04. Bits and pieces.

Words

The images are already starting to do the rounds, but they are too nice not to post, especially on a Sunday. Margaret Howell, as a person, and a brand, present one of the most cohesive aesthetics I've ever seen, and it just happens to be my taste. These photographs of Margaret's country home on the coast of Suffolk are rather beautiful. The tones, the items, the subject overall - have a look over at the NY Times magazine for the rest of the images.

Ebbets Field Flannels for Inventory Items

01

Images

—01. Inventory Item 016.

Words

The secret about Ebbets Field Flannels seems to be out now, but that is no reason not to make a nice product with them. One of my personal problems looking through their catalog is figuring out what team to choose. Whether it be a city, a league or the logo, it can be tough if you choose your alliances carefully. We thought that making a plain wool ball cap would be a nice solution, just using a hint of colour on the button on the top of the cap. In our first collaboration with Ebbets, the wool hats come in navy with a burgundy button, and burgundy with a navy button - simple, wearable and good looking.

Woolrich Woolen Mills Ranger Pants

01

—01. Light weight broad cloth cotton.
—02. Soft olive tone, with multiple pockets.

Words

Daiki may not be known for his pant designs, but I do feel that the Ranger pant is one of his best. The leg is fairly slim, and has a nice tapper, but in my experience, sizing up slightly has made for a perfect fit. The light weight olive broad cloth is a really nice choice for a summer pant as well. The tone is really natural looking, and it would be easy to wear almost everyday.

Alden Navy Suede Long Wings

01

—01. Exclusive make up for Frans Boone.

Words

Navy suede shoes will always have a certain appeal, especially as our first Inventory shoe came in the colour. In fact these Alden's bare quite a resemblance to those shoes overall. However, Frans Boone's use of Alden's long wing pattern looks very nice, and unique. The red sole might be in the spotlight, however it feels more subtle on these shoes, and I think they'd make a nice spring, summer, fall or winter shoe.
