Greg Selkoe’s latest endeavor, Boylston Trading Company, has certainly taken off on the right foot.

The Boulder Pack, Tahoe Duffle and Stockholm Brief messenger are fitted with some fine details as well including contrasting black details found on the base, zip, piping and handle, with lining coming in a red tiger-camo print. Each design is limited to 100 pieces and can be found for pre-order through BTC, with a full release slated for November 25th.

The slim fitting jacket features authentic talon zippers and comes in black and brown. It’s shipped in classic Perfecto cigar box, modeled after the original shipping boxes from the 1930s.

Japanese label The SoloIst and Los Angeles-based Oliver Peoples have teamed up once again for a small collection of eyewear. In total, three different styles will be available, with each dropping in two gradient colorways — black and light brown. As you’ll see from the shots above (and below), there’s a more classical style that’s been crafted and one that’s a bit more modern as well to appeal to a wider range of folks out there. The frames are set to drop in early Spring 2012 to the Japan/Asian market, though you can expect a small quantity to hit Oliver Peoples Boutiques as well.
Dutch brand Denham and musician James Lavelle have teamed up for the Advisor Parka for Spring 2012. It’s a modern take on the classic M65 Fishtail Parka — old-school shell with new-age fabrics. The parka features a indigo rubberized nylon body made from Italy, and fitted with hand-painted details. It’s lined with seersucker, has plenty of pockets for easy storage and a hint of sweater material from the Canadian army. With the parka also comes headphones released in association with audio label Frends.
Tricker’s is really keeping up with the demand as they’ve dropped another collaboration, this time teaming up with Sweden’s SCOUT for this small collection. The first of the two offerings is the Beechnut Burnished Derby Brogue, one that reinvisions a collaboration between Kenneth Mackenzie of 6876 and Tricker’s from roughly ten years ago. It features a calf leather shell atop a red Dainite sole, as well as brass eyelets and Tellason laces. The Midnight Blue Suede Derby Brogue looks great as well, especially with its navy Repello suede upeer and Dainite sole. Shop the goods at SCOUT.
The latest varsity jacket to hit the market comes from Japanese brand A Bathing Ape and Brooklyn-based Ebbets Field Flannels. Ebbets has been dropping some really authentic pieces over the years, most notable for their wool caps that are now sold at several legit retailers. This item doesn’t steer away from the brand’s vision as it’s got all the proper detailings of an authentic varsity jacket. The navy/red/cream colorway looks phenomenal as does the bold crest that’s featured on the back.
Park & Bond continues to deliver some really exclusive product, this time partnering up with Nepenthes, a New York shop with roots in Japan that carries brands like Engineered Garments and South2 West8 as well as a plethora of goods from Japanese labels that you won’t find anywhere else. The Nepenthes shop-in-shop that’s now live online at Park & Bond continues this trend as there’s a good mix of brands, giving the consumer a complete feel for what they could potentially find in their Garment District boutique.

Superdenim and Viberg have teamed up to create a fine selection of Oxfords for the F/W 2011 season. The 145 Oxford is available in four different finishes, each with their own unique details. Our favorite happens to be the tan rough out suede variety shown above (shots of the other finishes below). It features a deconstructed toe and an upper that’s made from an incredible rough out suede leather. The wedge sole works well with the tan shell and the brown details in the stitching, laces really stand out. Each boot is hand made in the Viberg factory in Victoria, Canada.
