There was also an opportunity to contribute via Kickstarter to the production of the documentary on here life and work. I would have loved to have been a part of making this happen.

Happy Holidays!

The Collections

I've always been a fan of designer Adam Kimmel and feel he is one of a handful of this generations truly gifted American menswear designers. I think his clothing is inventive, modern and firmly rooted in the American menswear tradition. In this great video he offers a retrospective of his past collections, collaborations and inspirations. I was impressed and couldn't believe it when I heard and read his SS/11 collection was inspired by Snoop Dogg!


Stumbled across this cropped pea-style coat recently and have added it to my fall arsenal. I'm not sure how long ago Polo made it but since it was thrifted I'll bet it was awhile ago. It's very unique, versatile and I've received quite a few compliments while out and about.

Guy's Night In

I need to organize one of these.


Well, yesterday actually. The day went by so fast I didn't get a chance to post. Comfort is the mode. The holiday events are underway and I've been doing a lot of running around so haven't had much use for outerwear just yet. Plus, it's still pretending to be early fall around here anyway. I did wear socks but I'm finding it increasingly difficult to choose the pair most appropriate. This might be the first Xmas I'll be welcoming socks as stocking stuffers.
