Engineered Garments Spring/Summer 2012

We can’t not post an EG lookbook: we’ve been following the line for so long, and it’s an absolute staple of both of our wardrobes. Spring/summer is often not kind to many labels, and EG is definitely one from whom we prefer their f/w offerings; that said, if you want to murder game at that garden wedding next summer, get kitted in a jacket/short combo from this collection, bam, bridesmaids will be flocking. Great lookbook here with the usual older gentlemen models, also really like the family shots, nice touch… keep reading for the full spread, click images for full size.

Push Connection x Master-Piece Bags

Nice little collaboration between Japanese labels Push Connection and Master-Piece on a backpack and a smaller shoulder bag. Really feeling both designs, normally I wouldn’t got for something like the ‘push’ script splashed across the whole thing, but it definitely works here. Push Connection is a label I just found out about, one to keep an eye on… detail shots after the jump.

Garde+Eames ‘Bricks’ LP

Ever since I moved to Vancouver in the summer my main dude Rob Squire and I have had a rotating cast of synths and drum machines in the back of his Catalog Gallery, anchored by a few key pieces. We would jam out tracks, record them, and then we finally got it together to edit some down in to proper songs. Bricks is a techno record, and we decided to give it away for free, for a bunch of reasons that are a two hour conversation in and of themselves. There’s a nice review over at FACT that will tell you a lot more and you can download the LP there as well, 320 kbps files with a .pdf booklet, all fancy like. 2011 was a really great year for me and music, if you want to hear more about that check my recap over at sub|div. And of course, many thanks if you give a listen, plenty more to come in 2012.

The Great Divide – Winter 2011 Lookbook

The Great Divide have put together this shop lookbook for the Winter 2011 season. The spread features some of the shops lines shown together, from Silas, Won Hundred, Denim Demon, Pointer, to Libertine-Libertine, to name a few. I dig the casual look of the shoot, with coffees, burgers, folding bikes and a Ruckus’, all good in my books. Read though for the rest of the lookbook and click for hi-res images.

Go Slow Caravan

Another Japanese outdoorswear company that likes to wild out on the pattern and color combinations, Go Slow Caravan offers a wide range of product for both men and women, provided you’re qualified to deal with these redline levels of campswag. My tastes (obviously) reside on the more restrained side of the collection, but there’s a lot there to choose from… jackets, fleece, and a few cotton pieces are my standouts, check my seasonal picks both above and after the jump.

Cyderhouse Spring/Summer 2012

Here is a look at the spring/summer 2012 collection from Yoji Okamoto’s label Cyderhouse. We gave a look at the f/w 2011 collection from the line a few weeks ago, which had an overall sea monster vibe. The spring/summer 2012 collection is entitled Dada and takes its influence from the early 20th century art movement. This is another interesting and impressive collection from the label, keep reading for the full lookbook…

Eat Dust: 673-B Jacket & Pack of Three T-Shirts



A few months back we had a little feature on the guys from Eat Dust, the motorcycle influenced denim company. They have recently released some new products, including their classic 673 Jacket, this time with a wool blanket lining. As well as the jacket they have put together two different 3 packs of tees, either their white v-necks or three different graphics. The blanket-lined jacket is available in a limited run of 60 pieces, so don’t sleep or they will be sold out as usual with these guys. Below is a little video showing the numbering and signing of the jacket. Head over to the Eat Dust shop to pick something up…
