In Detail – 2/8/2012

So, it’s pretty obvious that this Engineered Garments work shirt is my go-to, especially this chambray one. Extremely wearable and simple. I seem to always be wearing it on the days I decide to snap some photos for the blog. But seriously, best shirt ever. You will get your money worth and then some. Wash after wash, it just gets better and better. The jacket is a few seasons old, but one of my favorite Woolrich Woolen Pieces that I’ve wanted to track down and finally found for a steal. The fabric on it is a coated ripstop, that is awesome for two reasons: it’s water proof, and it takes on some really great wear patterns due to the rigidness of it. I really dig the stitching on the collar. The reason behind it is to keep the collar sturdy and allow you to flip it up for years to come. The pants are Engineered Garments, and the boots are my Red Wing 8881’s that have finally made it past the break-in period. I’m just noticing how much I’ve been into olive drab lately… but that’s another story. This whole full frame thing is new, and I’m trying my best to get used to it.

Incase anything seems different…

Sorry for the lapse of content. Starting now, I’ll be shooting everything for simplethreads with a full frame camera. I’m really excited about this because I really think the amount of detail I’m able to capture with this camera far surpasses my D20o. Here’s some test shots, and this new body has me super excited to shoot new stuff.

Left Field NYC Herringbone Chinos

I definitely have a strong sense of brand loyalty, especially when a brand is as well deserving as Left Field. Christian, the one man army behind LF is consistently producing great quality and great fitting pants, as well tons of other garments ranging from work shirts to crew necks. These Herringbone chinos are another grand slam, and definitely something different from his usually choice of fabrics. Constructed from durable Japanese Herringbone twill that will definitely wear well wash after wash. Left Field never disappoints with the details: chain stitched waist band, corozo nut button fly, buttoned back welt pockets, and light indigo chambray pocket linings. Of course, these are made with pride in the USA (Los Angeles to be exact). This is my third pair of Left Field pants, and there’s a good reason for that. These are available over at the Left Field shop.

RRL “Lewis” Engineer Jacket

I was glad to finally be able to give this to the lady for the holidays! A reproduction of an old denim Engineer jacket with awesome details done up by RRL. Constructed out of what seems to be Cone Mills denim, with numerous fabric repairs that our patched with contrasting denim. Non-visible blue-line selvedge details on the inner placket & pockets. Reinforced canvas lining on all of the pockets, and a really awesome side-entry pocket watch pocket. Since this is a women’s jacket, they used a pink thread for the bar-tracking and chain stitching. A really nice vintage inspired piece, made in San Francisco and dead-on accurate. The repairs at the arm openings hint that it got caught in machinery and ripped.

Red Wing 8881

Well, someone please quote me on this: this is my last pair of Red Wing’s. Over the holidays, I treated myself to a pair of the 8881 Moc-toes. This model comes in a olive mohave rough-out leather. I wanted some olive drab-ish boots, and now I’ve got them. These are really great if you’re trying to switch it up from the “typical” Moc-toes. Traditional crepe sole, triple-stitch construction, Goodyear welted, and made in Red Wing, MN. 100+ years of making footwear doesn’t lie.
