Denham Mac Station Wool & Chino Mackintosh Jacket



Denham presents the third generation of its fusion winter-parka/denizen smock for Autumn Winter 2013. Retaining the vintage military DNA of previous iterations, the jacket continues to embrace Mackintosh’s water-resistant fabrics, with a unique hybrid finish that incorporates Loden wool alongside the traditional gabardine and latex membrane. This mix creates a water resistant barrier whilst repelling the elements and providing additional heat. The latest version of the Mac Station also includes familiar functional Denham features like the Cable Connection closure, Reverse Tape-Through Buttons, Flip-Snap Cuffs, Removable Brassard, pit venting, interior half-lining, boxed button waist adjuster and internal neoprene iPad and iPhone pockets.

Mark McNairy x Tres Bien Wool & Suede Boots

mcnairy style raconteur

Mark McNairy the collaboration king who has worked with more people than I’ve had hot dinners has come together with  Très Bien again  with this latest rendition of a Brogue Boot, and to be fair smashes it out of the park. Made in the UK from suede and wool, small detailing like the waxed rounded laces and pull heel tab provides a nice touch while the leather lining, red colored stormwelt and vibram sole completes a great design. Will be buying as soon as I finish this post

Common Projects Achilles Wool Sneaker

Common Project‘s flagship silhouette, the Achilles, gets a burgundy-speckled, textured wool make-over leaving the brand’s usual premium calfskin leather build behind. Sitting atop a black rubber vulcanized sole, the low-top sneaker features silver specks across the entire burgundy upper, finished with matching laces and leather lining that tops out around the heel. The brand’s signature gold stamp noting the shoe’s size and style code is placed on the rear still.



Nike Blazer Mid Wool Vac Tech Sneakers


Now available is the Blazer Mid Wool Vac Tech from Nike. Clean and packing a lot of style, this shoe features all around premium wool upper, with leather lining and two-tone laces with the signature Nike swoosh embossed on both sides of the shoe. Easy to wear in my opinion.
