New Balance 998

—01. Made in USA.
—02. Red, grey & blue.
—03. Nice silhouette.

Words

I liked this model the second I saw it. This colorway dropped last year in the US and Canada, but seems to be hitting some of our favorite European retailers lately. The premium suede, nice shape, clean colors and the fact that its made in the USA at New Balance's best factory should be just enough to win you over. If not, you can actually see this particular style being made in the 2nd issue of Inventory magazine.

Reigning Champ Sweat Shorts

—01. Heavy weight terry cloth.
—02. Made in Canada.

Words

Heavy weight terry cloth, made in Canada, affordable and comfortable as can be. This spring Reigning Champ slimmed down their collection, but produced these great cut of sweat shorts. There have been a few versions this spring, but these more athletic inspired shorts are probably my favorites. I've been wearing them around for the last couple months and can't complain at all. The classic heather grey terry is the perfect color for these as well.

Alden Plantation Chukkas

—01. Brown chromexcel leather.

Words

These shoes seem to have a bit of a fall feeling about them, but that doesn't mean they can't be purchased right now. Leffot just received two new chukka boots from Alden, but my pick is the brown chromexcel version with a plantation crepe sole. I already own this version in a blucher, and they're great. Tough, easy to wear, durable – I feel like the sole gives them a nice casual, rugged appeal. I'd personally be interested in seeing this chukka in a suede version with the same sole as well.

Issue 04

—01. Hard in the paint.

Words

From the paper to the plates to the pigmentation, printing a publication is a pretty portly process. We've spent a significant amount of time at the printers in the last few years on press check, an interesting and enlightening experience that not too many people get to see. This time around we shot some footage and made this little behind the scenes video of the printing of Issue 04. Printed at Hemlock Printers in Vancouver, B.C., Canada.

Aircraft

—01. Available in apple green and blue.

Words

"One of Nigel Cabourn's new styles for the spring is the Aircraft Jacket. Quick to become another classic, the aviation influence played a big role in this spring's collection. This is without doubt our favorite piece from his recent offering. Made in apple green cotton camebric, the light weight jacket is a great all-year round piece."

—01. Honey saddle.
—02. Leather grip tape.

Words

Sadly the summer in Vancouver has not yet landed, not even really a good dose of spring either. I've been looking forward to riding my bike daily, but the consistent rain has put a damper to my warm weather dreams. Over the last fall/winter, I found a bike the I really like and have slowly been outfitting it with the pieces, including the matching honey saddle and grips - was there really another option?
