Gilding the Lily
We’ve been impressed by Gilded Age before, but this is the first time they’ve pushed themselves historically. Their usual beat is 19th Century New England workwear, but their latest collection sees them swerving in a Hopper-esque direction. Instead of anachronistic rural digs, they’ve moved to anachronistic urban gear, meaning two-colored cardigans, trench coats and denim blazers, among others. There are enough people chasing the *Mad Men* look already, but Gilded Age is bringing something entirely their own to the look.
And, of course, they still churn out weathered jeans and flannel as well as anyone.
