Things I Want: Vol 1.

I’ve determined I spend far too much time on the internet. This has resulted in a lot of browsing around and building a gigantic wish list of expensive things I want. This, is not good. I’ve been trying to solidify my wardrobe by filling the areas I’m lacking in. So I’ll be trying to get all of these things by the time the real cold weather hits.

Albam Trail Parka

I’ve been wanting a solid waxed canvas jacket that will keep me warm and dry, but also look good. I wanted something with a modernized fit, generous amount of pockets, and some nice little leather details. I’ve decided to go with this beautiful parka from Albam.  It’s reasonably priced at right around $300 and should definitely be in my closet for a long time.

Carhartt Roper Pant

As much as I love putting wear on my Tellason denim, I’ve been wanting to pick up a pair of canvas pants to switch it up every once and awhile. I’ve been really interested in the Carhartt heritage line and want to give it a try. My grandfather has sworn by Carhartt ever since I can remember, so seeing some selvedge canvas pants in a modernized fit done by them seems like something I don’t want to miss out on.

Filson Pullman Bag

Not much I can say about a Filson bag that hasn’t been said. This is an absolutely beautiful bag that will just look better the longer I have it. I found someone selling it for way under the retail price, so I think it’s time to pull the trigger on this one. I wanted a bag to use for weekend trips as well as safely transporting my camera. The internal storage in this looks like it could be worked for both of these things.

Penfield Stapleton Down Vest

This has been something I’ve been wanting to delve into for quite awhile, I love the OCBD with the down vest over it for chilly days. Obviously with Penfield you know you’re getting a really nice piece that will stay in style and together for years.

Rogue Territory Dbl. Indigo Work Shirt

Karl of Rogue Territory has his heart in the right place with his whole line. From customized denim to these amazing quality shirts he’s putting out, I want ALL of it. Unfortunately, my current pay check doesn’t allow for that – so I’ve decided to just go with the Dbl Indigo Work Shirt. I wanted a shirt to put some serious wear into that would get better with time, this is the perfect shirt for that. I’m also pretty stoked on wearing the Canadian Tux.

    That Carhartt pant isn’t heads and heels better than a regular Carhartt pant. Carhartt offers a straight leg that looks pretty good in my opinion. And, like any of their stuff, will hold up for years.

  2. Great help on my Trail Oxfords question on StyleForum. What else do you suggest for vests this season?..I’m looking into the W+H one but it’s super pricey or the Garbstore vest with the toggles.

    • Justin,

      No worries! The Garbstore x Penfield vest is definitely awesome. I was going to go with one of the normal Penfield vests though. Another one that I like a lot is the Albam Waistcoat, it’s not so much a vest but it looks killer over a solid OCBD. It will not be as warm as a down vest unfortunately. Something in the similar price range would be the Woolrich Woolen Mills down vest, which looks really nice as well.

      Please let me know if you have any other questions regarding the Oak Streets. I would be more than happy to help. They really are wonderful.

  3. Thanks for the suggestions. And my Navy Trail Oxfords are on the way. Well hopefully by the beginning of December. You weren’t kidding, George is the true meaning of customer service. Quick and informative. Cheers dude.
