Italian labels Stone Island and Diemme have teamed up for this chocolate suede hiking boot. It’s made at Montebelluna in Italy, as expected, and features a timeless hiking boot design, one that Diemme has rejuvenated over the past few seasons. The solid Vibram outsole works as a great platform for the brown waterproof suede upper that’s fitted with leather ankles, technical hiking eyelets, embossed Stone Island logos on the heels, and a Stone Island patch on the tongue.
C.P. Company is taking inspiration from the past and the future for their Fall 2011 collection. The research that goes into the creation of a collection is more extensive than most labels out there and it shows in the authenticity of the final product. This lineup features a good amount of military influence as well as inspiration from outdoor apparel from the 1950s, with the end result being ideal for the modern urban landscape.
Oki-Ni and other select retailers have the goods.
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.
The new QWSTION Office Tote is a great looking bag that’s extremely versatile. It features fully removable handles that can be attached horizontally or vertically, all depending on how you’re looking to sport it. Its multiple storage options give room for a 15-inch laptop compartment as well as two practical outside zipper pockets. Couple the utility with the label’s classic Washed Grey cotton canvas shell and you’ve got a bag worth buying.
London’s Goodhood store has dropped a lookbook for their Fall 2011 offerings, titled “Beneath the Canvas”. The shots go into the studios of East London artists Sickboy, Word to Mother, Russell Maurice (Gasius) and Mudwig. Some of the brands highlighted include Comme des Garcons Junya Watanabe Man, Norse Projects, SUPER and Universal Works. Look for the products now at Goodhood.
Our good friend Lawrence turned us to this a short while ago and we thought it best to give you guys a look as well. It’s a down shirt jacket by Crescent Down Works made exclusively for Los Angeles-based South Willard. It features a 60/40 blue shell that’s unmatched and navy streak free lining as well as leather button reinforcement and brass snaps. The slimmer fit is perfect and made to perfection here in the United States.
End Hunting Co., the in-house label for the UK’s End Clothing, has teamed up with Tricker’s for a pair of two tone long wing brogues. It’s a subtle reworking of the Golosh country brogue exclusively constructed from contrasting full grain and smooth, waxed calf-leather panels. Of course we added some bespoke features such as the alternate brass top eyelet and tonal Dainite sole for added durability during these colder months, also not forgetting the unique woven cotton heel pull.
These brogues are available both in store and online in two colourways.
Here’s a weekend size bag from Maison Martin Margiela 22, one that’s made from water repellent cotton/polyester and fitted some fine details to make it worth the dollars. The dark blue shell just looks great year ’round and coupling it with silver zippers really helps to give this Italian-made bag an inviting aesthetic.
Tanner Goods collaborates with San Francisco-based denim label Tellason for this Roll Tote bag. It’s extremely portable and features high quality fabrics and craftsmanship throughout. It’s available in three editions, each with particular leather and denim detailings. A few of the fabric options to choose from are 12.5oz denim, 10.5oz deadstock duck canvas from Graniteville Mills, and a heavier 19oz black waxed canvas. The attached should straps allow the bag to be rolled up and tucked away, adding some functionality to a great looking piece. (via hb)
