Red Wing Heritage x Nigel Cabourn “Munson Boot”

select retailers next fall is the Munson Boot – a Nigel Cabourn and Red Wing Heritage collaboration. The two teamed up to make a very practical shoe that was inspired by British Army combat boots from World War 1. Both companies are industry experts, so combining their expertise and knowledge results in a boot that is good looking, rugged and ready to be worn.  It features oiled roughout leather (which means the flesh side is facing out, so it’s ideal for waterproofing) and will be offered in two colors; a light-brown Hawthorne Muleskinner as well as the darker Chocolate Muleskinner. Both colorways come with deep green thick leather shoelaces, matching eyelets and my personal fav  – army green Harris tweed lining. A quality boot that’s going to last.

Beams+ Mountain Parka

Beams+ Mountain Parka, $595

Beams+ Mountain Parka, $595

my dad had a jacket like this a while back and I know I like it. Unionmade is selling this highly functional jacket by the Japanese brand Beams+. We know Unionmade is a store out west that’s all about classic, sturdy, well-made items and that they carry super legit brands like Woolrich Woolen Mills, Billykirk and Freemans Sporting Club. And if you haven’t heard of Beams+, you should learn their name too. The brand launched in 1999 and is about way more than just clothes – it’s a lifestyle that includes music, art and interior design. This 1970’s-inspired parka has updated details like a draw-cord hem, ergonomic hand-warmer pockets and high performance fabrics that make it waterproof and breathable. The result is pretty much the perfect piece for outdoor activities, not so bad for wondering around the city either.  There’s a reason this guy’s back.

Finding a backpack..

that every other kid doesn’t have is kinda tough these days, until now! Mokuyobi Threads makes really cool bags with fun, eye-catching prints. The lining is made of nylon so your stuff stays dry in unexpected down pours. If I were a kid again, (and actually liked attention) I would definitely rock this backpack!
