Best Socks of the Season

It’s finally starting to feel like fall in Seattle, and I’ve begun to start rotating in my cold weather clothing. Among my favorite accessories of the season are my vintage inspired J.Crew camp socks, which are made in the USA with heavy cotton and some poly materials for added strength. I’ve always purchased a few [...]

Review: J.Crew’s Wool-Jersey Roll Necks

I ordered one of these not long after they went on sale online, hoping that it would be decent enough for a budget roll neck to layer with for the season. The fit is the same as their other sweaters, but the wool-jersey blend that they’re using for this is pretty uncomfortable, and not even [...]

J.Crew’s New Flap-Pocket Oxfords

Now available in stores as part of their fall-rollout. The fabric is pretty soft and I first thought that there was some wool in it, but nope, all cotton. Hopefully they’ll have some more in other colors later, I could definitely go for one with blue stripes.

Silver Slide Buckles

It needs a good polishing, but I finally got around to getting a new belt for this sterling silver slide buckle that I’ve had lying around unused for the past few years. Made in England like the best of them, it was purchased from J.Crew of all places back when they attempted to sell a [...]

The newly resurrected Menswear magazine has an interview with Frank Muytjens. Here are some excerpts, questions by Jean E. Palmieri: How do you come up with novelty, given the inherent limits of men’s wear? Men’s wear is almost like a framework. All the shapes are there and you can tweak them, but you have to [...]

J.Crew has finally put up some high-res images from their lookbook for fall.

Sunglasses, Rivington’s Revisted

Some obscure options from Japan. On a side note, I’ve been wearing my Selima Rivington’s more often lately and I’ve come to appreciate their lighter weight compared my Persol’s – thinking I might like another pair in tortoise, I was surprised to see that J.Crew is now charging $75 more for them than they were [...]
