When it comes to a quality cup of coffee, we’ll admit that New York City has been traditionally late to the game. Unlike our West Coast counterparts, who have always been armed with a more acute understanding of how beans and brews work; we don’t have a long history of destination coffee shops, and rare roasts. It’s not that coffee has not played a significant role in daily life here in New York, rather it’s that coffee has been historically been known as more a functional fuel, rather than a culinary pursuit. Like gas to a car, coffee has literally powered New York for as long as anyone can remember, but until the past couple decades, there hasn’t been a very visible coffee culture here in the city. A Continuous Lean.

A Suitable Wardrobe
Persistence truly is a high virtue, if not the high virtue, for anyone wanting to succeed in the crazy world of thrift shopping. In this post, I am pleased to announce that after more than twenty years of active and regular thrift shopping, I have finally managed to acquire one of the most elusive, and yet most basic, wardrobe items via thrift: the perfect grey flannel suit. You may think that given some of the crazier things I find in a thrift store that something as simple as a charcoal grey flannel suit would be easy, almost a commodity.

Thankfulness And Gratitude Thanksgiving is approaching, but marketers are already trying to get our minds past our gratitude and on to our greed – which they hope will fuel our spending on Black Friday. Rather than rushing past the holiday of reflection on the meaningful parts of our lives, perhaps we should expand such introspection beyond once a year. Recent studies in psychology would support such a move, pointing to a list of ways gratitude improves general health and wellness, across physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual dimensions.
The Houndstooth Kid With the way I go on about the quality of vintage all of the time you probably think everything was amazing back during the Golden Era. And that's not true, there were plenty of bad quality pieces, just like there are today.The reason we don't see those pieces very often nowadays is that they were cheap and didn't survive. A cheaply made piece isn't going to last as long as a well made piece, especially if it is all the owner can afford and wears it to death. Not to mention certain materials didn't always behave the way the owner might have wished: THE SHRINKING SONGWoolen socks, woolen socks!Full of color, full of clocks! The Houndstooth Kid

ISTYLEU ISTYLEU "COMUNE was formed from the idea that there will always be people out there who not only embrace the rawness and imperfections of everyday life but also use it to creatively push the boundaries of what’s possible in skateboarding, fashion, art, and music their own way, with complete disregard of the consequences. Their goal is to provide clothing that reflects this lifestyle of carefree idealism and to support the people that choose to live it." One brand you should check out this holiday is COMUNE.

For this year’s OTC Holiday Style Guide, we look to some modern classics that are designed and built for how we live life today. That means timeless practical design, like Rotring mechanical pencils, or a handmade heirloom that will only get better with age, like a Frank Clegg bag. But it also means technical dress socks that keep your feet happy all day long and totally modern hunting jacket. One of the enduring truths of real East Coast preppy style is that it’s based on the adoption of functional basics, re-imagining them for everyday life, and using them until they fall apart. Off the Cuff. Classic. Modern. Style. Off the Cuff. Classic. Modern. Style.
I have never been a big fan of fur. Not for any ethical reason, but simply because I have rarely found pieces that are subtle enough to appeal to me. The lambskin coat above, before you raise a quizzical eyebrow, does not count as subtle either. But it is made by a lovely, large Icelandic man named Eggert Jóhannsson, who I was fortunate enough to meet a few weeks back. Eggert is a craftsman. Permanent style
