C Store Fit of the Week

A common Swedish tradition this time of year is heading out in to the woods to pick mushrooms, particularily such delicious treats as chanterelles & porcini mushrooms.


For this weeks outfit we've drawn inspiration from the typical mushroom-pickers outfit, layering the heavily waxed Longline Parka from Heritage Research as an outer with the Universal Works Angler Waistcoat underneath, ideal for outdoor use with it's many pockets. Closest to the body we've put the luxuriously soft Andrew Crewneck sweatshirt from Italian brand Workers Knitting Mills for superior comfort. We tied the whole thing up with Our Legacy's slim fit jeans & the new 212 oxford version of the classic 214 boot from Red Wing, making the outfit work just aswell on the city street as in the woods.






Heritage Research New Longline Parka €350/ SEK 3499:-
Universal Works Angler Waistcoat €99/ SEK 999:-
Workers Knitting Mills Andrew Crewneck €179/ SEK 1799:-
Our Legacy Our Slim Fit Raw Jeans €129/ SEK 1299:-
Red Wing Oxford 212 €229/ SEK 2299:-



Workers Knitting Mills & the new Our Legacy denims are available for purchase in store now & will go live online shortly.

Have a great weekend!

Soon to drop - Stussy Deluxe A/W 2011

Stüssy Deluxe just released their fall/winter 2011 lookbook which features legendary Stüssy tribe member Jules Gayton. Originally from London, the jack of all trades moved across the Atlantic in the 1980's to attend both Pepperdine University in Malibu & Parsons School of Design in NYC. 


While in New York, Gayton became an avid dj playing at hip venues such as Area, Tunnel, Cheetah & Limelight to name a few. This is also where he met Shawn Stussy & the longtime partnership with Stüssy began. After djing alongside fellow tribe members Hiroshi Fujiwara, Michael Koppelman & Alex Baby at Stüssy World Tribe parties in both New York & Tokyo & appearing in several Stüssy ads, Jules moved to Hawaii in 2001 & opened his famous Leilow shop in 2003. He is also a partner in the Stüssy Honolulu boutique.

The Stüssy Deluxe A/W 2011 collection is due for release here at the C Store tomorrow. To let you know what to expect, here's a few flicks from the seasonal lookbook:


 For the release DJ Jules put together a mix entitled "Light My Fire" that is the perfect soundtrack to the collection. Enjoy!


Come by the store to tomorrow to check out our Stüssy Deluxe selection in person. If you can't make it to the store, the collection will be made available on line @ caliroots.com/c-store within the next few days.

Soon to drop - Heritage Research

As you may come to expect, this is the time of year when our brands have begun delivering their fall collections to us here at C Store. Among them is Heritage Research, a brand that specializes in reproducing mens wear classic with an attention to detail that's so extreme it borders on being autistic. All garments are meticulously made by hand under one roof in the U.K. using only the finest British & Japanese fabrics, specifically woven for Heritage Research.


This season the collection is divided into two sections, one inspired by JFK's impeccable sense of style & the other by mountain man John 'Liver Eating' Johnson's rugged appearance. Though these two may seem like total opposites, the different aesthetics blend effortlessly to create the signature Heritage Research look.


Here's a few images from the Heritage Research lookbook to let you know what to expect:

Expect the Heritage Research fall line to be available soon both in store & online @ caliroots.com/c-store
