We’ve been on the lookout for summer shoes since February, and with 125 days left until Labor Day, those white low-tops are looking better and better.
This beat-up sneaker from 3:33 caught our eye a while ago—although it looks like the Refinery29 folks prefer the plaid model. The plain white version sports just the right amount of wear, while keeping them bright enough to set off the cross-stitching on the front. It gives the shoe a vaguely medieval vibe, and it’s one of the better uses of pattern in a shoe we’ve seen all year.

We first saw these bags at Carga’s booth at the Capsule Show in January. Carga’s philosophy is based on applying construction techniques to clothing, and this is one of the better examples of the principle. Aside from a few leather accents, the bag’s main material is industrial wool felt—a considerably tougher stock than what you find on your card table. It’s held together by aluminum rivets with a die-cut handle for a raw, architectural look that owes more to the construction site than the boardroom.
The style is also available as a briefcase and a vertical laptop bag, but we prefer the larger model. If you’re going industrial, you might as go for capacity.
