Hypebeast Feature: The Gastown Culmination 

01

Details

—01. Right to left: Simon, Owen and myself.

Words

Over the last five or six years there has been one definitive name in our blogosphere, Hypebeast. I would be surprised if anybody who reads this website hasn't visited before. I'd also be surprised if every blogger out there wasn't influenced by the website in one way or another. Over the last couple of years Hypebeast has cemented its place at the top even further by refining their layout, execution, video and series of features. Recently we were fortunate enough to be featured by Hypebeast in relation to our new space, the development of the magazine and the direction of our brand.

Beams Plus have been working with Kelty for a few seasons now. The partnership continues to result in nice looking functional products like these bags. Ideal for day trips and riding your bike around, they are small, simple and nicely designed. I particularly like the green and tan options myself.

Kitsuné Natural Espadrilles

—01. Front view.
—02. Handmade in France.
—03. Natural cotton.

Words

Another summer classic I would expect to see back on people's feet sooner than later are espadrilles. While it might be a better idea to snag a pair for $10, Kitsuné have made a beautiful pair in a natural colour. Handmade in France, if you have the chance you might as well get the nice ones.

Dultuh Trading Co. Oxford

01

Details

—01. Also available in a 6" version.

Words

The Duluth Trading Co. have a number of great looking items on their website. While it's a little bit hard to get an idea of the product as they are all illustrated, the few images you can see make the footwear seem like a pretty good deal. They are made in the USA, and while they might not be quite as good as what we've seen from Red Wing or Yuketen, the price of $130 is pretty appealing and definitely makes them a good spring option.

Sassafras Fall Leaf Pants

—01. Lightweight chino cotton, donut buttons.
—02. Nice clean label.

Words

Sassafras continues to be one of our favorite brands from Japan these days. The gardening references are lighthearted, clever and result in some great looking garments. One of the items featured in the spring issue of Inventory are the Fall Leaf Pants. The twill cotton is a great weight, has a nice texture and is accented nicely by the donut buttons, clean labeling and interesting pocket details. The pants are one of a handful of Sassafras items I've personally handled and tried on, and each time I've been very impressed.
