What can we (really) learn from the fashions of bygone eras? “We must have the courage to go back to the age-old tradition of ritual and dress code. We must have the courage to turn the shoddy away at the door.” – Glenn O’Brien People of Walmart. The voyeuristic blog-dumping-ground for the least appropriately […]
“Vintage is my vocabulary, like the notes of a musician.” -Alessandro Michelle Alessandro Michelle, the director of Gucci (since 2015), knows something. Billie Holliday once told a reporter that she never sang the same song twice. Some nights she sang it sad, some nights she sang it happy, sometimes fast and sometimes slow. If […]

There is a great divide among boot devotees though – there are those who polish and oil and baby their boots with […]
Don’t Over-Do it. Walking the sartorial tightrope while making a statement is a tough job. There is a very fine line between sensible style and going overboard.
