Things I Want: Quilted Vans

I am loving these Vans! Great colors and the quilting is very cool. I definitely want to add these to my (growing) Vans collection... I think yellow (naturally!) and the black would work well in my closet. Oh, maybe red too.

Things I Have: Tuxedo by Patrik Ervell

I fell in love with this tuxedo the moment I saw it at Opening Ceremony. I'm a huge fan of Patrik Ervell... and the navy jacket with black lapel was perfect. Tried it on, loved the fit, but couldn't justify owning another tux.

Then I stopped into Opening Cermony last month and randomly asked if by any chance they had any of the tuxedos left. Somehow they had one, and it was my size. Fates had aligned and I bought it on the spot.

Now the photo here is from the lookbook... I haven't modeled it yet because I still need to take the pants in to my favorite tailor (Dina, at Sweetzer/Beverly).

But soon, very soon, I will be rockin' this amazing look!

That is all.

Things I Love: Unknown Hipster Sketches

So I came across my favorite new site... Unknown Hipster! As much as I love the "on the street" photos by the Sartorialist, I think these sketches are just brilliant.

Here is one with Margherita Missoni... but another fav is the one he did of Thom Browne. Looks just like him!

Check out the site ( and enjoy them all! Brilliant!

I'm back... and some Dries for Spring '10

I know, I know... I have taken a long break from this site. But fear not, while I've been gone I have been accumulating a lot of great things that I want, a few that I love, and a couple that I have (Patrik Ervell tuxedo, what?).

To start it off, I had to post about Dries van Noten, who just showed his Spring '10 collection in Paris. I've long been a fan, and my affection continues with these amazing prints. Must. Have. The. Shirt.
