GRIND Magazine Vol. 36 featured an assortment of MA-1s from Japanese brands. Included in the selection are bombers from C.E, Needles, Phenomenon, Undercover and BAPE. It’s currently brick city in NYC and that means that outerwear season is in full effect. See more after the jump
I haven’t had the chance to check out The New Order Magazine Vol.9 for myself yet, but I did come across this editorial featuring garments from EG Fw13 and some familiar faces from the Nepenthes camp. I really like the casual photo style here and the inclusion of both louder patterned items with more subtle gear. The magazine cover story is a feature on Jun Takahashi so it seems like the latest volume of the publication is well worth purchasing.

Journal Standard’s M.O is to put out well made casual wear classics. Their Fall/Winter lookbook has that in spades. If you are looking to get your grown man on at your day office job, you could definitely do worse than Journal Standard.
This preview of Visvim’s Fall/Winter 2013 doesn’t introduce many surprising new styles but it does show the ongoing evolution of brand staples. As is to be expected there’s ton of great outerwear:from the M-65 style Kilgore jacket to the Gore-Tex Valdez fur-lined parka. The FBTs return in some very solid colorways and there’s some Skagways to please the sneaker crowd. Honeyee always does an excellent job at capturing the detail in product shots. The cowichan sweater near the end is a testament to how seriously Hiroki takes product manufacturing. Make sure you click through to see all the pieces.
Palace Skateboarding has quickly risen the street/skate wear ranks through a combination of thoughtful product and hard-hitting skate videos. Coming off collaborations with Reebok and Umbro the line has continued to grow globally with it’s core skate audience as well as the fashion set. This editorial was done in collaboration with The Rig Out Magazine and features skater Lucien Clarke hanging around London. Most of the gear is standard skate fare: hoodies, t-shirts and caps but there’s also some inspired takes on everything from bucket hats to down jackets. While obvious comparisions to Supreme are inevitable for this label, I feel the British influence is enough to set it apart from what labels are doing here in the states.
You can purchase select pieces from the collection at Supply Australia.

Grind London’s twitter page describes the brand as BADMAN ATTIRE and that is certainly a fitting descriptor for this excellent lookbook. Shot on the streets of Notting Hill, the brand blends Jamaican culture with UK underground cool. There’s a little bit of everything in this collection from snapbacks and bucket hats to chore coats and basic button downs. The shoot is featured in a fitting feature within the 5th issue of Breaks Magazine. You can buy the product online HERE.

Not sure what it is about fashion and forests that goes together so well but this Patrik Ervell trailer is yet another example of mans x nature. Through the misty wilderness of the Santa Cruz Redwood Forests a selection of Fall/Winter 2013 looks are revealed. My personal favorite the quilted white sweater makes the cut along with some very decent looking outerwear for the season.

Rick Owens has his own special way of taking ubiquitous men’s staples and perverting them into something slightly grotesque but undeniably captivating. As he’s done with the Rick dunk (as it’s popularly referred to) , Rick has taken on the Timberland boot this season in the form of these Plinth Hiker Boots. Taking the basic silhouette of a Timb and making it extreme, he’s used thick suede leather and slapped it onto chunky exaggerated sole. The trademark Rick side-zip returns this time accompanied by a myriad of lace eyelets. These are boots that take some getting used to but as they were seen prominently at his FW13 runway show, they are only wearable to guys who have both the requisite funds and confidence level. You may hate these now, but I see these becoming a staple model for Rick moving forward. Get these at Oki-Ni.

It won’t be long til the remaining summer heat dissipates into crisp autumn air. Put away the t-shirts and take a look at these five shirting selections for Fall.
Black Pinstriped Patchwork Button-Down by Junya Watanabe
Junya has got shirt-making down to a science at this point in his career. Details abound on this joint from the artfully chaotic patchwork to the small spread-button collar. Really nice button placket and shirt-pocket on this and a shirttail hem. A nice update to the classic pinstripe shirt. $580 via SSENSE
Red Suede Shirt Jacket by Our Legacy
Our Legacy is a brand that has a continually puts out interesting shirting season to season. There’s not too much to say about this red suede joint. If you like luxury but wanna be low-key and not ostentatious about it, this shirt may be a worthwhile investment. Be wary wearing this to the bar, but know that if you do, people are gonna be asking to touch you. Horn buttons and snap front pockets make this easy to throw on and something you won’t likely have buyer’s remorse over despite the hefty price tag. $740 via Tres Bien Shop.
Noizig Print Shirt by C.E (Cav Empt)
I’m still a little tight about missing the Simulation shirt by C.E from their SS13 collection. Luckily redemption can still be found. I googled the word noizig and still have no idea what it means, but that’s beside the point. The greyed out sky print goes hard and C.E has been selling briskly since the brand reached North American shores. Stay ahead of the pack and cop with confidence. $266 via BDGA
Undercover Men’s Cotton Overshirt by Undercover
Like most guys I used to wear shirts that were way too long untucked because I didn’t know any better. This is like that the well designed version of that in the form of an overshirt. Designed to be worn over oversized, feel free to throw a t-shirt or slimmer button-down underneath this joint. This is a versatile layering piece that you can pair with either short bomber-style jackets or longer parkas or overcoats. The crisp cotton material looks great and has two functional pockets. £360 via Oki-Ni.
Elbow Patch Double Pocket by ts(s)
If you’re gonna buy a plaid shirt, either get a really cheap one or ball the fuck out and get one with some extra bells and whistles. Made from a unique plaid flannel and with navy elbow patches on each side; this is an undeniably good-looking shirt. While you may get lumberjack comments from plebeians rest assured that this one shirt is better than anything they’ve ever owned. $625 via Haven
Since I’ve known about Nexus VII I’ve always appreciated the outerwear pieces they’ve put out. In particular I felt like their gore-tex shells were some of the best out. I was looking forward to seeing what the Japanese label had in-store for Fall/Winter 2013 and they didn’t disappoint. What I like about lookbook is that the photography and styling both have a vintage feel, but the individual pieces definitely enter more experimental territory. A fantastic Air Force inspired leather jacket is in the mix alongside some ill sherpa lined shearlings. More technical pieces are here too including layered weighted shirts, down pieces and vests. Be sure to click through and see the rest.
Put your proxy to work these items will be dropping on their webshop very soon.
