N&L robe...I'm digging the construct. Just not sure about the skull and cross bones thing.
Now over to Cordings. This pains me as much as anything but I can't deny it. I was witness to their attenuated inventory and flat affect when I was last in London. Perhaps it's too much to say that they are on their last leg-I hope otherwise.
I'm not Hackett's target market so that fact that their latest efforts are lost on me is ok.
I'm all for unique. I'm a fan of different. I like being an outlier but even I have Fuzzy Dice Boundaries. The oddly spaced-configured Hackett sleeve buttons bother me. Shut up.
Ok...here's a couple of things from home. J.Crew is offering a whimsical belt this season. Not too expensive-kinda cool. I don't know if I'd like to have a crab claw that close to Wankertown though.
J.Crew as always, remains a go-to destination for GTH horizontality.
The ADG jury remains out regarding the disposition of madras for the 2010 season. You might recall that I declared madras, especially patch madras, in need of a sabbatical after I found it for sale in the surf-head shops at the beach last August. The same might now be the case for horizontality.
LFG and I walked in to Urban Outfitters in Georgetown the other week and spied this menagerie. It's gonna kill me to declare a Horizontibbatical but it might be time. Just watch your evening news regularly for my announcement. Damn.
Speaking of horizontal...the weather remains crisp enough here to wear my J.Mc. horizontal cords. Here's a little shot for the ladies! You are welcome.
And finally, I'm often asked how I can still wear the same size trousers that I sported in college. Easy to answer-hard to do...It's all about trade offs folks. Look for "lite" versions of your favorites...seek leaner cuts of everything.
