Takeshi Omura Ceramics

01. Vase.
02. Bowl.

Words

After studying under well-known potter Keisuke Iwata, Takeshi Omura moved back to his hometown of Fukuoka, set up a kiln and began developing his own style. His pieces are recognizable by their almost metallic feeling, and seem to find the right balance between refined and rustic.

New Balance CRT300VW

—01. Suede and mesh upper.

Words

The CRT300 stands out as a unique retro-inspired tennis shoe amongst all the others out there. Pairing CT300 styling – originally from 1979 – with a REVlite sole, the classic silhouette is given a modern update. An array of bright colours have been released, but this simpler white option is my preference.

Bermuda Trips Mashiko Pottery

—01. Black Glaze with White Drip Rim.

Words

Dean and Natsumi recently returned from a trip to Japan, filling their bags with new products for their Bermuda Trips website. There are some great Alumite bento and pocket snack boxes, some indigo bandanas and deadstock bottle openers, but my personal favorites are the handmade Mashiko pottery pieces. With several unique cups to chose from, this small sake cup is my pick of the bunch.

Nike Free OG SP TZ

—01. Tier Zero release.

Words

To commemorate the tenth anniversary of Nike Free, as well as the shoes that influenced the groundbreaking concept, the 'Genealogy' pack was unveiled earlier this year. Taking that campaign a step further, the brand have now released a selection of the same styles with black uppers, including this Free OG model with a speckled grey sole – a detail that's always hard to resist.

Wim Neels Daily Military Pants

01. Cotton herringbone.
02. Washed fabric.

Words

I’ve been after a pair of slightly cropped, boxier fitting military pants for a while, and these ones by Wim Neels Daily seem like a very good option. There’s something to be said for the useful pocket configuration, but I think the richly textured herringbone fabric in this lighter tan colour is the real standout.
