The latest collection to arrive in store is from our Canadian friends at Maple Co.
Each season brings a collection of accessories that are heavily influenced by their rugged North American environment alongside reinterpretations of vintage Japanese work wear. Focusing on sustainable materials, quality craftsmanship and functional design, each Maple product adds just that little bit more soul to your story.
The Maple Longtail Keyring comes in solid brass, with Maple’s signature leather and glass beading accents.
This is one of our favourite pieces from the season: the extra long “Star Concho” belt. Designed with extra length to either hang or tuck and finished with a beautiful thick cut yet soft textured cow leather.
A staple for most seasons, the Bolo Bracelet is now available in bold silver coated glass beads with a leather lace core.

The Store has seen a lot of new arrivals roll through the door in the past few weeks with a few stand out items. Most notably the latest season Jungle shirts from Wtaps. Wtaps has become renowned for their military inspired collections, with each seasons focus subtly shifting to highlight slightly different fabric makeups and treatments. This seasons Jungle shirt comes with the signature four pocket detail with a sleeve pocket update. Fabrication this season is in a heavier weight cotton chino fabric, that has undergone a wash process to create a heavily worn vintage effect. A classic Wtaps piece that can be worn as an over shirt / jacket, that will only get better with age.
We’ve paired this up with the Edwin Labour pants. This seasons Edwin offering has really impressed, including an expansion of their “Indigo” capsule. This season they have also stepped out of their standard classic pant offering to offer slightly more adventurous takes on classic workwear pieces. The Labour Pants being our stand out favourite. Using their classic Union Slim Work Chino as the inspiration, they’ve used the same fabric as last season, a smooth textured highly durable poly/cotton blend that has a subtle sheen. This season updating the fit with a much fuller straight and slightly cropped leg whilst maintaining the same front workwear pocket details. The most interesting aspect of the pant is the subtle elastic detailing on the back waist band, allowing for a much more comfortable fit and greater movement. Also check the slightly heavier weight indigo dyed version that comes in a beautiful linen textured cotton.
Subtle accessories supplied by the latest seasonal updates from Maple Co. The extra long “Star” Concho belt and wallet chain. Incorporating some luxurious yet hard wearing materials and hardware and all hand crafted in their native Canada. The beauty is in the details.

So in case you missed it, A Love Supreme crew joined forces with Melbourne’s Crown Ruler to celebrate the release of their EP Focus – Zulu. This EP is a remastered and rereleased version of the album’s original 1983. The party was at West End which made for a great dance floor, thanks again to the crew from Ben’s Burgers. Thanks to every one for showing up for a boogie we were feeling the disco and funk vibes all night!
