http://www.alexandermcqueen.com - Alexander McQueen's 2013 Men's Autumn Winter Collection
Alexander McQueen's menswear collection for Autumn/Winter 2013/14 takes the classicism of Savile Row and subverts it. A pinstripe three-piece suit has a signature McQueen pagoda shoulder, with a longer jacket to create a new lengthened silhouette. These are matched with low-rise pinstripe trousers that are cropped with a slight kick flare. A cigar shoulder gives an alternate nipped-in jacket shape. White cotton shirts come with pinstriped collars and cuffs, a motif that is repeated with other fabrics from the collection, all of the shirts coming with a longer collar and barbed wire cufflinks. As the collection evolves, single-breasted suits are patchworked from panels of pinstripe and some suits are cut from a cloth specially woven to look like patchwork. A softer shape comes from a kimono-shouldered camel coat, worn over a camel suit with articulated S-cut trousers.
Military dress is an important part of Savile Row's history. This ceremonial heritage is represented in red and black paneled frock coats with military buttoning above the waist. Meanwhile a detail of a blown up stained glass church window is used as an all-over suit print, an image which also appears on a long silk dressing-gown. Silk polka dot dressing gowns are worn with velvet tailoring, ushering in the eveningwear section. Velvet tuxedos are cut with a pagoda shoulder, and also come constructed from patchwork panels. Patchworking is taken to its ultimate extent with an intricate multi-patchwork coat constructed to follow the elaborate pattern of a stained glass window made from velvet, satin, grosgrain and jacquards.
Throughout the collection, footwear also plays with British traditions. Brogue and Derby detailing is matched on a leather shoe and cut like a slip-on loafer, whilst a Chelsea boot has been cut short to create a new slip-on shape, with a strap detail at the ankle.
"It feels right to focus on Savile Row for our first ever Alexander McQueen menswear show in London," says Sarah Burton, creative director of Alexander McQueen, "especially since we opened our menswear store on Savile Row at the end of last year. This collection is full of tailoring traditions and subtle references to English style''.
F or 25 years we have provided deluxe wilderness outpost fishing trips from our Armstrong location into beautiful Wabakimi Provincial Park and surrounding lakes.
Yes, we take you where the fishing is extraordinary , but there is more than fishing. Yearly family gatherings sharing a wilderness experience in comfort. Father - son (or daughter) bonding trips or Husband and wife celebrating a second honeymoon with the added spectacular outpost fishing or `the buddy trips where the tall tales get taller.
Its a big time stress reliever! . how do you think about anything else when you are fighting a fish?
Greg and I had a great week. we caught over 1000 walleye. There were well over 200 in the slot size (>18"). This is the most large walleye that have ever been caught on a trip to whiteclay for me. The slot size protection is working. It seems that each trip has more large fish being caught. Our largest northern was 43". It was caught on a jig while walleye fishing.
Greg and I sent see what you missed letters to about a dozen folks. Hope that translates into a large group for next June. . Fran and I are looking forward to the August fishing trip .

Received your card. Congratulations on 25 Years! We speak often about the great times we had at Ogoki! A Tribute to you both!
Best Regards, Rich Craddock.
What a nice surprise to find your post card in my mail yesterday. Twenty-five years is a long time to do anything; much less a business like yours with all the uncertainties of weather, exchange-rates, two-country economies, etc. There is a reason why your business has survived and (hopefully) thrived. you do the wilderness fishing experience better than anyone in the outdoor sport vacation business.
Dear Judy and Paul,
Congratulations on 25 years. I have many fond memories of my time with Jack at Ogoki. Hope all is well with you.
. . . Nicole will take you on a guided tour!
This website will take you every step of the way for a worry free fishing vacation!
Let us introduce ourselves; Judy & Paul Boucher and family. Weve been doing this for 25 years and have learned a thing or two on how to take the worry out of the wilderness experience. Our staff will help you with anything you may not understand or solve any mechanical glitch right away. In short: we treat you like family!
Just a note to let you know our recent fishing junket to your Mojikit South Outpost.
Ive been coming to Armstrong area since 1972 and have probably flown in with 6-7 different outfitters over the years to numerous outposts. Your Mojikit South camp is clearly the nicest camp I have been to. The cabin is beautiful and roomy. Great kitchen and dining area. Beautiful screened in deck and outside porch overlooking the channel. Large chest freezer and a frig that actually keeps things cold. Screened in fishing cleaning house with running water. Bedrooms that are roomy. Vaulted ceiling the the cabin is a plus. The cabin is centrally located to both the lake and the Ogoki Reservoir.
The boats are the best that Ive ever experienced at an outpost. The inside bottoms consist of flat carpeted panels. easy to get in and out of. 1st time Ive fished an outpost with "dry" feet. The boats had comfortable swivel seats and 15 & 20 hp 4-stroke engines that worked great.
We will definitely be back. Everything about Ogoki Frontier was quality. My two grandchildren had the time of their lives, as did the other 2 members of our party. Thanks for the memories.
