Sendai Brown for Winter Workers.

The Papa is putting together winter looks using his newly bought Lofgren workwear as a base. The core elements here are the Natural seeded selvedge chambray shirt which has a beautiful weight and fine texture.

Heavy brown duck bakers pants from John add authenticity when teamed up with Papa's custom belt from Warp and Woof. The Navajo stamped buckle was cast from an original out of a 30's Montgomery Ward Catalog and the Papa had Carnelian stones added. These duck pants will age beautifully when worn and washed down.

The Brown Duck cap was made for the Papa by Warren Schummer of Vintage Workwear and features a shoe string lace up back. Set against old Redwings this is an awesome combo.

John Lofgren's Speedway Shop in Sendai Japan is one of the few establishments in the Far East that ships abroad hassel free. If you've ever had to deal with Japanese retailers you'd appreciate this point no end! Contact Speedway, talk to John and tell him the Papa sent you.


  1. For a month the drums echoing in the lush green volcanic valley, have asked but one question: "Where same-same PapaNui?"

    The Beach Battalion doesn't maintain moral very long when the Beach Master himself has been gone for so long.

  2. The Beachmaster is a busy man Mick cant always be bloging. There's facebook and Tumblr to take care of as well and then there's making sure Moloko isn't goofing off in the lagoon someplace. Be patient man.
    Regards the Papa.
