Fall 2010 | Rag & Bone Waxed Edmund Jacket

Fall 2010 | Rag & Bone Waxed Coton Edmund Jacket

Nowadays, we see plenty of waxed cotton pieces and the market may be overrun with the material, but not each item is actually wearable. Rag & Bone just released the Edmund jacket, which happens to have a waxed cotton shell. This is proper usage of the material and the design and construction of the jacket itself leads to a complete package. The Edmund is fully lined and features drawstrings at the hood and hem.

The Launch | Wolverine 721 LTD Cordovan Boot

The Launch | Wolverine 721 LTD Cordovan Boot

Last night, we had the opportunity to stop in at New York’s finest shoe shop, Leffot, and see the Wolverine 1000 Mile 721 LTD boot in the flesh. I also got the chance to speak with some of the folks behind Wolverine and when I say they know what they’re doing, I mean it. They pulled out some inspiration from their archives and delivered a timeless boot in the 721 LTD. The Horween color 8-shell cordovan leather is really something else.

The shaft and tongue are unlined shell, which is great because it’s softer and suppler around the ankle and instep. They’re surprisingly lightweight and flexible and offer great support under your feet. As with all cordovan boots the more you wear them the better they look.

Wolverine is only making 1,000 pairs of these and each are hand numbered and includes Basswood shoetrees and a certificate of authenticity.

Wings + Horns Striped Handknit Sweater

Wings + Horns Striped Handknit Sweater

Wings + Horns seldom disappoints and their fall line further affirms this notion. There are plenty of great pieces, and one that stood out most to us was this handknit sweater. The virgin wool fabric comes in a navy/heather knit and features a zipper upfront and button closure at collar. The leather elbow patches are a great touch.

Engineered Garments is known for the its attention to detail and functionality, something we rarely see from the majority of labels out right now. The USN Pant is a great look as it blends a grey cotton with wool stripes and gives it some fine detailing as an added measure. The pants come in a straight leg, regular fit so no surprises in that department. And as always, this Engineered Garments piece was made in New York.

Alden for Blackbird | Brown Calf Skin Foss Tugger

Alden for Blackbird | Brown Calf Skin Foss Tugger

Blackbird has been known to work with Alden of New England in the past on collaborative footwear, available exclusively through the Seattle-based retailer and they’re at it again. This time, they’re delivering a new version of last year’s Foss Tugger, a boot inspired by Seattle’s famous Foss tugboats. It’s essentially a Blucher High Boot with a brown calf skin leather upper and a light-weight Goodyear molded rubber outsole in a light espresso finish. The durability and comfort are unmatched and the leather insole also features the “Made expressly for Blackbird” heel pod as an added stamp of approval.

These boots run a bit large so Blackbird suggests dropping a size.
