via hypebeast.com Nike Roshe Run NM SP “Fleece Pack” yesterday, we now have a closer look at the Tier Zero release sneakers.

Furthermore, the two-tone design and Hyperfuse technology add further juxtaposition to an otherwise very clean sneaker. Finishing touches include contouring at the toe box and emblazoned branding at the rear. Continue reading

via www.inventorymagazine.com Homespun socks are some of softest, most comfortable work socks I think I’ve owned. The secret is in the predominantly cotton construction, with added wool for warmth and just enough synthetic material to keep them returning to their original shape. They look just like a classic pair of work socks, but are far removed in texture from the scratchy varieties we’re all surely familiar with. Homespun Dustbowl Work Socks Continue reading

via www.inventorymagazine.com I’ve been following the Japanese reproductions of Brown’s Beach products ever since I tried on one of the vests a few years ago. Anyone who has experienced the brand's signature wool and cotton blended fabric will know there isn’t anything else like it. They've now created a thick black chesterfield coat out of the inimitable material and the results are simply fantastic. This is a piece of outerwear that will last for decades, and remain as appealing as ever season after season. Brown's Beach Solid Black Chesterfield Coat Continue reading

via www.inventorymagazine.com Tender Co., seemingly born from a continuing fascination with denim fabrics, natural dyes and steam powered railways, is probably most recognized for its unique jean designs and shirt styles, but another thing the British brand quietly excels at is knitwear. This crew neck is exquisite yet still perfectly simple, relying on warm Shetland wool and a distinctive ladder back construction to do all the talking. Tender Co.

via www.inventorymagazine.com It seems that whenever a new Ten C coat or jacket is released it climbs to the top of my favourite outerwear list almost immediately. That’s basically how I feel having seen this down jacket. The brand’s designs are always exceptional, anchored in understated styling and first-rate construction. Plus, the triangular stitching on the neck flap in this instance is incredible. They’ve made a few brighter colours in this style, but when it comes to wearability, you can’t go wrong with navy. The Ten C Arctic Down Parka is constructed from a water-repellent polyester blend with down feather... Continue reading

via www.inventorymagazine.com I’m astounded that Corona hasn’t been picked up by any stockists in Europe or North America – not that I know of at least. They’ve been one of my favourite brands to follow from afar for years now, and their American workwear and military references are always flawless. This nylon taffeta jacket has a vintage hiking feel that is both utilitarian and unique, amounting to a well-styled outer layer that can be easily worn over a heavyweight wool sweater.

Made in Italy from wool, cotton and nylon, the fit is modern yet boxy enough to accommodate cold weather layering. But what really grabs me is the construction of the casual, wide set collar. 1205 Layer Shirt Continue reading
