5 Favorites from Lands’ End Canvas Vice President Nir Patel
Sure it’s just stuff. But stuff can make life easier, more enjoyable, etc… Every so often we ask one of our favorite people to rattle off their five favorite things. This is the stuff they’d grab if the house was burning down.
Responsible for growing Lands’ End Canvas as a brand, Nir Patel has helped LEC establish itself as a wardrobe foundation for plenty of guys looking for what LEC calls “clothing and accessories with an effortless sense of style .” And c’mon, under his leadership, they won a Store Wars Championship.
As is always the case with our 5 Favorites series, nobody is paying to be here and we determine who gets a spot. To ratchet up the difficulty level on owners, designers, and managers, they’re allowed to pick just one item from their place of work.
#1. Monocle Magazine
“One stop shop for international news, design, culture, food, travel, & shopping. My Sunday morning reading material.”
#2. Haversack Green Military Issue Bomber
“Head designer Koji Norihide’s line inspired by vintage military & workwear. Made in Japan from the best fabrics available. Fits like a glove” (Image of the hard to find Haversack Bomber via svpply)
“New take on the classic camo cargo short. Great fit and pairs back to everything from your favorite Oxford to a classic chambray.”
“Made in Wisconsin, always comfortable (after an intense break in period), great quality & service since 1922.”
“This is definitely a want. I haven’t quite talked myself into throwing down the funds necessary here but I can dream. Killer sound from a company with a strong design heritage, what more can you ask for?”
