Leica Portraits

01

Video

—01. Wolfgang Wesener.

Words

Leica is a great brand, making a great product. They continue to produce top of the line cameras that just about everyone I know, wishes they could afford, myself included. Anyways, they have been doing a series of short films featuring talented snappers entitled Leica Portraits. Short, sweet and insightful, the videos are worth a viewing, and will probably leave you wanting a Leica even a little bit more.

Lofgren Wabash Polka Dot Work Shirt

01

Images

—01. Indigo dyed fabric.

Words

I'm not too familiar with Lofgren, but the vintage reproduction pieces are quite impressive. This 1920s Japanese dyed indigo work shirt includes hexagon embossed buttons, scalloped double back yoke and underarms, and of course a railroad style watch pocket with angled button hole for all you watch chain enthusiasts. The details and construction of the shirt help solidify my first impression of John Lofgren as a brand, subtle and classic.

Workers Western Shirt

01

—01. Black.
—02. Olive.

Words

Set for release in July, these cotton sateen western shirts by Workers are a clean and simple version of a classic. Perfect as a summer layer, but equally wearable all year round, I like the use of earthier tones at a time when most brands are offering something altogether brighter.

Visvim Skagway Lo Denim

01

Image

—01. Denim and leopard print upper.

Words

I know the pricing is prohibitive to many - myself included - but these are a prime example of what Visvim does best - using a classic silhouette and taking it somewhere new; making it the best it can be through considered design and innovation. The combination of grey denim and tonal leopard print on the tongue and heel is a measured touch, unique but not overpowering, making them easy to wear, but a little more interesting than standard cap toe options.

Words

Viberg continue to develop new styles, use new leathers and grow their casual 'collection' in a good direction. This fall should see one of their most extensive and interesting ranges, including this brogue cap toe Servicemen boot.

Head Porter for Silly Thing

01

Images

—01. Photographer traveling pack.

Words

You can put this freshly on the top of my 'want' list. Head Porter and Silly Thing have worked together on a photography project before, but this one has resulted in a set of great looking, very functional bags. Especially the small lens and camera bags would be great to have handy. The all black everything colour choice, clean details and fabric all look very nice together.

Waste(twice) x The Superior Labour Basque Shoes

01

Images

—01. Made in Spain.

Words

These woven jute espadrilles feature a lightweight construction and a rope sole. This current model has not changed significantly since the mid-19th century, making them a casual summer staple. The colours are simple and are accented by a single painted stripe across the front. A strong summer collaboration for these two brands.

Look: Ready for Summer

01

Words

The sun finally came out in Vancouver on the first official day of summer. It's still not entirely hot out however, so a jacket might be good to keep with you, say in your back pack? The colors here feel nice and summery, casual and easy to mix around together. Comfort is definitely key, so whether you need a little added layering, or the hot weather haven of a madras shirt, whatever the climate, you'll be set.
