Take a Seat
- Najib Benouar
In the eyes of Americana-fied menswear, the Brothers Corsillo can do no wrong. (We’re speaking of the fellows behind the celebrated clothing/general store, Hickoree’s Hard Goods and the selvage tie revolution known as the Hill-Side).
Continuing their pitch-perfect run, they’ve unveiled a multifaceted collaborative effort of epic proportions, the Hill-Side & Co. They’ve teamed up with nearly every buzzworthy brand to create one-off pieces that range from floral-patterned shirts to this set of blanket-upholstered chairs you see here. It’s easy to get excited about all of the clothes—there’s plenty of handsomeness to go around—but the chairs really struck us as the standout collaboration (with the fine folks at Sit & Read). Nowadays it seems every menswear brand is printing an “x” on every label they sew into a shirt or pair of pants they chose the fabric for—so it’s nice to see folks think beyond the clothes.
Gentlemen, this is the chair from which you should be reading Kempt.
