You may have heard of Made in the World before but chances are you haven’t. It’s a Tokyo-based vintage shop that’s got a ton of American product, pieces we here in the States would love to grab. Word’s gotten out that the shop actually has only deadstock Red Wing Shoes dating back to the 1950’s. The Red Wing Shoes Heritage Team tells us original brown leather oxfords are positioned alongside a huge selection of 101 Postmans, many of which can be had at their $1,000-range prices.
New York’s rag & bone has released this cotton day pack, giving us a great looking backpack to utilize on our day trips over the coming months. It features leather detailing and a large main compartment, giving us a shell that looks good and is usable as well.
Minnesota-based J.W. Hulme Co. is dropping a few new styles for the Fall, three of which comprise the ‘Washburn’ collection. The Angler Bag, Airport Bag and Day Tote are all made out of green waxed canvas and feature brown leather trim and brass hardware. The Angler Bag is a messenger-style bag that delivers just the right amount of space for your daily companions such as a laptop and work docs, while the Airport Bag is a sturdy carry-on that’s spacious and masculine. The Washburn Day Tote is a great buy as it’s extremely generous in space and is made to help you get through the busiest of days. We’re looking forward to seeing what else they cook up for us as they’ve been consistently dropping some fine product.
Though we’ve featured Billykirk’s Schoolboy Satchel in the past, we’re really liking this slate finish. The deep blue shell is different than anything we’ve seen in recent memory as it has some vintage appeal but doesn’t lack functionality. It’s made from vegetable tanned leather that will wear to perfection and comes with plenty of essential pockets to keep things safe and organized.
Stone Island teamed up with Ortlieb to create their “Drybags” line of duffels, messengers, and backpacks. The bags are waterproof, airtight, and buoyant. To prove this claim they gave the bags to filmmakers Lele Saveri and Giulia Mari, and what came about is a simple yet quirky video highlighting what makes Drybags so special.
We spotted this trio of backpacks a few months back at (capsule) and the final product is looking great. The shell’s made from water repellent fabric and also features two side pockets as well as leather straps to round out the details.
The Japanese label has been gaining plenty of traction here in the states and it’s primarily accredited to the team’s work ethic and consistency throughout.
The popular menswear shop UNIONMADE is making big moves as they have opened another location in Santa Monica. While their San Francisco home base still remains, this second location shows that there’s no end in sight for the growth of quality menswear retailers.
Though we’ve highlighted a few different rucksacks as of late, we’ve admired Ally Capellino’s work for quite sometime and pin this piece among her best. Its comes in a light-colored waved canvas shell and heavy bridle leather buckles, adjustable straps and a chunky leather handle that really stands out.
