Unis Spring Chinos

—01. A nice variety of color.

Words

If Unis was known for one thing in over the past ten years, it's the Gio chinos. The New York brand has since built itself on these great fitting, well made pants. Neighbour recently received a shipment of the pants. The cotton is nicely washed and the tones offer a great variety of spring tones, with a weight that works all year-round.

Post Overalls x Engineered Garments

—01. Initial sketches.
—02. Revisions.
—03. The 'Engineered' jacket.

Words

Recently, during arguably the worst time to open a shop in Japan, Post Overalls opened a small store front in Aoyama, Tokyo. The shop features a full selection of Takeshi's collection, as well as a few special products. As an exclusive for the store, Takeshi and Daiki worked together to create this Engineer jacket. The details are simple and the result is very nice.

Spring Look

01

Words

We just had our one-year anniversary of the Inventory Stockroom this past weekend. We decided not to make a fuss about it, but we're still happy to have had a fairly successful first year of brick and mortar retail. We appreciate the support from everybody online, overseas and in Vancouver and look forward to a few more years in Vancouver, and hopefully even somewhere new within the next year or two.

Solmate Mixed Socks

—01. Mismatched with care.

Words

A company who knits beautifully constructed socks and accessories "mismatched with care". Each "pair" is knitted at Marianne Wakerlin's family owned mill in Central Vermont using cotton yarns from recycled materials. By doing so they create environmentally responsible cotton products and reduce the amount of virgin cotton that needs to be grown-therefore helping to reduce landfill waste.

Now Available: Kelty Vintage

—01. Constructed from Cordura Nylon.
—02. Classic 60s Design.

Words

Up until now, Kelty's Vintage collection has only been available in Japan. A handful of UK retailers including Oi Polloi and End have recently received a nice little selection of the bags. They are simple, clean and classic. The small Day Pack is one of my favorites, and a bag that I will probably end up purchasing this summer, just need to decide on the color.

Staples: Engineered Garments Workaday Fatigues

01

Images

—01. Olive Sateen.
—02. Made in USA.

Words

I can't really say any of the Engineered Garments Workaday pieces aren't staples for myself, but the Olive Sateen fatigues are probably one of the best items they offer. Always a classic, the wide leg pant has just the right balance of clean detailing, reference to the original vintage version and updated fit. While that doesn't refer to the width of the leg, the cut of the pants and the way the fabric in particular washes and wears is really nice.

—01. Mono Workwear Volume 05.
—02. Lightning American Heritage Book.

Words

Among Superdenim's recent magazine releases are the latest issue of Workwear and an American Heritage edition of Lightning produced with The Flat Head. Although the monthly Japanese publications are always a great source of inspiration, it's these kind of comprehensive special editions that I find myself going back to over and over again.
