—01. Engineered Garments wool vest (tough).
—02. Mt. Rainier Design wind shed jacket (tech).
We just received the latest issue of Outdoor Style, Go out - and its one of the best we've seen. From Beams celebrating their 35th anniversary by showcasing their Arc'teryx collaboration on the cover, to a well documented camping trip to some incredible street snaps, the issues is filled with great imagery. These are a few of our favorite fellows from the classic battle of 'Tech vs. Toughness.'
—01. Mr David for Gentleman Wardrobe Editorial.
—02. Porter X B Yoshida Tote Bag.
For their 35th Anniversary Beams have chosen a number of new and old partnerships and collaborations. This stretches from beyond simply producing special editions of product, to the catalog that's aimed at both promoting and celebrating the Japanese brand. Beams turned to EATer, the design agency behind the much loved and highly influential HUgE magazine, to create a familiar and well-designed look book, which is available, both in print and online. It features not only several pages of well-shot still lifes, but also three exceptional editorials, which means there's plenty to look at, whether you’re down for some raver stylings, or a nice bit of rugged dandyism.
—01. A fine fall shoe.
One of the lesser worn yet better looking leathers that Red Wing's tannery produce is the Oro Russet. It has sort of a redish tinge to it, which is only a subtle difference, but it is just enough. This fall the Work Oxford comes in this fine leather as well as a few more options.
—01. Raso-R Windstopper® Hardshell.
—02. Concealed interior pockets.
The Stealth Jacket is arguably the definitive Stone Island Shadow piece. The MKII version is this season's offering, and is perhaps the best to date. As with all Shadow Project pieces, the exterior shows a seemingly minimalist design, while an unfastening of the jacket itself reveals an abundance of well considered details. The Stealth Jacket has a total of 11 different pockets; only two of which are visible from the outside, and, in keeping with Stone Island's philosophies, offers not only technical superiority, but also an exceptional fit. Water resistant and wind proof thanks to the Raso-R Coated outer shell, the splash of green on the interior is the perfect hidden detail to help cement this as a modern classic.
—01. Paired nicely with thick wale cords.
One of Viberg's most popular models has been released by Second Stage in Japan. This particular pair feels very refined, almost pulled back to a similar model Viberg would have made a couple years ago. The vintage Chromexcel, and tonal Vibram sole make this a very solid fall option.
—01. Waxed Tan.
—02. Wool lined.
Monitaly continue to develop and produce a new verison of their Mountain Parka each season. This fall, the jacket comes in a waxed canvas cotton. Tough, ready for fall and available in some great muted tones, this jacket will be sure to get you through the winter in good shape. It includes a wool lining, nice hardware, and of course it's made in the USA.
