Long time, no WIWT.
New watch strap, shell cordovan in #8.
Finally got around to getting Alan at Narragansett Leathers to make a belt for an old family buckle. Really happy with it.
New-ish loafers from Brooks by an unknown manufacturer, but made in the USA.
Great chamois khakis by Bill’s, copped a couple of weeks ago. Great for the rest of summer and fall.
Shirt by Sid Mashburn, great looking large patterned gingham in blue.
Also recently got this great pair of Brooks Brothers x Rancourt penny loafers.
Finally blew out an old Bass pair, really dig these guys.
Hermès Magazine, 1995
Cam’ron and Juju close out the Mark McNairy F/W 14 fashion show.
Actually looks pretty dope.
Maybe overreacting to the controversy about the brand’s made-in-China 2012 Olympic uniforms, Ralph Lauren and co. went all YOU-ESS-AY YOU-ESS-AY YOU-ESS-AY on this year’s models. This shawl collar sweater will be worn for the opening ceremonies (it’s made, indeed, in USA) and is available to non-athletes for $595. WAIT A MINUTE, I ONLY COUNT 45 STARS. I bet one of the stars left out was the one for my home state.
