Co-founder of The Goodhood Store Kyle Stewart picks some of his favourite pieces from this season. Check out what he selected and read why below.

I’m so glad to be offering Unused back at the store. It’s right up there for me in terms of quality and style. We all love waffles in the store and this one is really long. I’d wear it under a sweat to give a layered look.
I’m really into the idea of owning all the classics in my wardrobe. As far as leather biker jackets go this is modeled on the absolute classic popular throughout the 60’s and 70’s and worn by the icons of the punk movement like the Clash and Sex Pistols. This Unused model is made from ultra soft buttery leather, a really refined piece that appeals to me for the lack of time having to ‘break in’ the jacket.
Bandanna’s are handy things to have around and I have a fair few of them. I’ll definately pick up this Unused one as it’s unusual to find them in silk.
As far as denim goes I really believe you cannot get better than LVC. Heavily washed jeans are such a staple in my wardrobe and these come through with a nice authentic wash on top of a great fit.
My liquid consumption revolves around 2 cups of coffee every morning and then bottled water and herbal ginger tea. Perhaps against popular consent I really like a ceramic mug with no handle.
I’m really proud of being able to work with excellent people like Joe from Satta, I really like what he does and the way he does it. Being a grass roots type business he carves all the decks by hand from his workshop in Brixton and this was such an easy project for us to execute. No stress.
Last time I owned a pair of Shelltoes would have been in about ‘95. They were actually our choice shoe to skate in for a time and for me it’s great to see them back as it feeds an element of nostalgia for me. What’s more this is a cracking looking pair; buttery soft suede with off white rubber midsole and toe box. My days! Lush.
I love hoodies, and you can’t go wrong with this black logo rendition from FPAR. I love the story behind the graphics in that Tet of Wtaps designed the line pre starting Wtaps. Apparently all the graphics were designed on Macintosh OS6, the really, really old Macs, and you can see the graphic is actually reminiscent of early Apple branding in its use of the Garamond font. Total geekery but I love it.
Japanese approach to ceramics and porcelain is great. These from Tonfisk are super nice and I love the mix of dark walnut wood and off white porcelain.
Norse Projects is such a staple for us and I always pick up a couple of pieces. Their beanies are a great fit and we believe in the office they’ll stop you getting a cold as the cooler months draw in.
The Neighborhood incense chambers are really collectable, and I wish I had picked them all up over the years. If you’re into incense which I am then there is no better way to burn them.
One of the difficulties of making clothes if you aren't a giant brand or retailer is meeting the minimums the factories or mills require. We made this shirt out of four left over fabrics Norse Projects had and just let that lead the design, thus getting round the minimum fabric quantity issue and make a great looking shirt. Needless to say I love it.
