Versatile Staples

September 24, 2015

There is something to be said about good staples in clothing. Every guy needs them. They are the building blocks of a well put together man. Here we wanted to highlight a great pair of jeans and a great oxford. Both are a must have and can be worn so many ways. Below you will find five looks all with the same oxford and same pair of jeans. 
*Keep it casual*
Throw on your favorite jeans, white tee and oxford. Pair it all with a classic ball cap and white sneakers. Wear it to the park with your kids or to a lunch with friends...EASY! 
- Hat, North Ebbets Ball Cap
- Sunglasses, Garrett Leight Angelus
- Tee, North Shop Pocket Tee
- Oxford, Taylor Stitch  Everyday Oxford
- Jeans, Imogene+Willie Barton
- Watch, Techne Merlin 245 
- Sneakers, Converse Jack Purcell 
*Everyday wear*
This is pretty much what we wear daily. Very slight change from the first look but still a totally new look. Button the shirt up, change the sneakers for a pair of Chukka boots and swap the sunglasses for a metal frame...its that easy!! 
- Sunglasses, Garrett Leight Van Buren
- Tee, North Shop Pocket Tee
- Oxford, Taylor Stitch Everyday Oxford 
- Jeans, Imogene+Willie Barton
- Watch, Techne Merlin 245

*Fit for the Office*
Lose the tee and tuck the in the shirt. Grab a nice belt and a pair of oxford shoes and you are ready to walk into the office.

*Layered*
Soon the weather will cool off and your oxford becomes a great layering piece. We love it paired with a vintage military jacket and a navy watch cap. A little reminiscent of the post Vietnam style. 
- Watch Cap, Krochet Kids 
- Tee, North Shop Pocket Tee 
- Oxford, Taylor Stitch Everyday Oxford 
- Jeans, Imogene+Willie Barton
- Boots, Red Wing Heritage Classic Moc Toe 875
*Dressed Up*
Every now and again you've got to get a little dressed up. It can still be easy. Same oxford. Same jeans. Put on a navy blazer with a classic tie and some nice oxfords or wing tips. Now, you're ready for the party.

NORTH Fall '16

October 13, 2016

North Fall '16 is a collection of classic essentials all made in Los Angeles. The collection comprises of 4 timeless pieces:

Its a perfect broken in denim jacket based on a vintage type 3 but cleaned up and simplified. Followed by a classic CPO Shirt Jacket with an incredible dead stock fabric that once you touch it, you'll have to have it. Then we've got our chambray shirt, which we simplified so its a little less workwear and a little more versatile. You can wear it so many ways. And finally our chinos, which we worked hard on the fit of these pants. They've got a touch of a higher raise for comfort and then we really spent time on the taper of the leg and in my opinion we achieved a perfect fit for a chino. The great thing about the collection is you can literally wear all the pieces together; each compliments one another well and that was my intention.
