There is nothing like stopping into your favorite thrift or vintage haunt and coming away with something special. I've been looking for some items to add to my expanding collection of gentlemanly accessories. My sister showed up over the holiday's with a beautiful cigar case and cutter for me so my hunt for a proper lighter began soon after. It ended this weekend with this vintage Colibri in near perfect condition. While I've not given up looking for my cherished Laguiole pen knife my search for a back up was rewarded with this little guy. I think it may be military but I'm not sure. Never underestimate the power of a well curated antique shop.
This weekend saw me in the company of some amazing creative minds (more on that later) and a much needed trip to the City of Angels. I had a little time left to roam and was able to stop into Mohawk General Store. It's a store I've known online but have always wanted to visit in person. Great staff, merchandise and that globalized aesthetic we consumers have come to expect from our high-end retail. I finally was able to get my hands on some Our Legacy, thanks to their seasonal sale. Beautiful fabrics in subdued tones and all the laid back sophistication I've admired from afar since they started around 2005. I think this was one of the first brands that really opened my eyes to the whole "Menswear" thing and I have never been disappointed by a collection I've seen. Thanks Mohawk and keep bringin' the good stuff OL.
