A Continuous Lean.

A Continuous Lean.
In the last two years Portland has seen an influx of established shops from around the country (Jack Spade, Steven Alan, Imogene + Willie) pop up next to some of the city’s home-grown Northwest retailers (Tanner Goods, Danner Boots, Poler, Nau, Filson). This combination of new and old, local and out-of-town, has created a mix that has finally started to give the city a bit of its own unique and diverse shopping scene. Yet even with all these new faces, one retailer continues to stand out in the crowd as a favorite – Frances May. For the past six years, under the guidance of owner Pamela Baker-Miller and her Grandmother (and co-owner) Connie Codding, Frances May has been Portland’s most reliable shop for high quality mens offerings. Their selection is always evolving, always ahead of the curve and always classic.

His wildcard? later in life he would take to wearing white Repetto ballet shoes as he admired their soft leather. Knitwear pyramid is as follows: blue crewneck sweater < grey v-sweater & shetland < cardigan , rollneck, cable knit, as always buy the best that you can for the blue sweater (good:lambswool better: fine merino, best: 2ply cashmere), and keep it thin enough to wear under a blazer

Urban Composition The Full Gustin This is my favorite shirt, hands down. Not because it’s comfy (yet can take a beating) nor because of the hefty herringbone weave denim (though I like that, too). No, it’s because of the pockets.

studio hervé 2013 was a good year, not superbe, but really ok. I'm looking forward to 2014 and I'm sure it's much better than this last year. We have big plans for 2014, I will tell you more when the time is right! Have a wonderful rest of the year and a perfect start 2014! epochs M ens dress has taken on huge changes over the last decade. It’s largely agreed that this is the shift from physical retail to online and the resultant change in buying habits. This shift isn’t only in buying patterns though—the press model of the top-down magazine disseminated and often shamelessly commercial has become a more grassroots, consensus driven and informed approach. It has been a massive and welcome change, albeit one that major publications like gq & Esquire are as of yet unable (or unwilling) to catch up to. In those magazines editorials featuring a brand’s product are placed directly across from their advertisement. Other western publications produce shamelessly artistic editorials almost ignoring the purpose of displaying clothes.

mi casa es su casa somniloquy: July Issue of Inside Out Magazine (via House of Turquoise: Martin Gomez Arquitectos) GARMSVILLE With costume-design by wife Catherine Martin and hair-design by the great Kerry Warn - both involved in Baz Luhrmann’s previous epic Australia - there’s a familiar feel about The Great Gatsby, due for release early next year. What is f’sure is that this is no remake of the 1974 Gatsby movie starring Robert Redford and co-starring Ralph Lauren’s wardrobe or the lesser known and decidedly less glamourous Alan Ladd version from 1949. It’s potentially better than both.There are loads of parallels between today’s society and that of 1922, when the book was originally penned. Both periods are marked by economic instability, a widening gap between the ‘haves’ and the ‘have nots’, an increasingly disgruntled underclass, and a shamelessly amoral free-market system. Both are also periods of incredible cultural upheaval caused by the impact of new technologies – in our instance the web and digital media, in theirs, the automobile and electricity.
