A new weekly feature, starring stylish intel from our brothers-in-arms at UrbanDaddy. This week: a new custom shoe shop in NYC, a new menswear emporium/life skills school in Dallas, plus something called “voyeur showers” in Miami. Let’s get going, shall we...»
UrbanDaddy Miami has tipped us off to the opening of Cottage, a first-of-its-kind menswear shop in the heart of Sunset Harbor. Meaning a triumphant win for all of our sartorially minded followers hailing from the Magic City.
Until now, the Miami style scene has relied heavily on department stores and e-commerce imports. The mastermind behind this new brick-and-mortar, Ariel Burman, seeks to change all that, aiming to bring the beachy-yet-dapper awareness of Nantucket, Malibu and Biarritz to his hometown.
He’s curated the place much like he would his own closet, resulting in a healthy mix of American and European designers all playing nicely under one laid-back (and canoe-lined) roof.
It’s fixing to be your new go-to stop for everything from washed trousers to all-weather knits to grooming basics and all manner of suiting/accessorizing in between, tapping brands like A.P.C., Band of Outsiders, Saturdays Surf NYC, Michael Bastian and Todd Snyder, along with a slew of other gentlemanly powerhouses.
Outlier’s latest lookbook demonstrates the proper time and place for rocking a pink S/S/B/D: on a speedboat outside the Port of Miami. The shirt is Brazilian chambray, and pretty handsome stuff—although if you’re short a boat, we might stick with the blue version.
Our cardinal rule of style is to dress for the occasion. And when you’re a Vogue Brazil editor on assignment in Art Basel, that means bringing your A-game.
Fortunately, when presented with said challenge, Fabrizio Rollo knocked it out of the park.
The sockless loafers speak for themselves, as does the just-weird-enough chambray tuxedo shirt—so we’ll start with those pants. We haven’t seen double pleats on a fashionista in quite a while, much less wool pants rolled above the ankle, but if you’re dressing for a cold season in a warm climate (like Miami in December or Rio in July) it’s a pretty smart move.
Throw in a summer scarf tied over both the collar and the shirt, and you’re in hall of fame territory. Take notes, gentlemen.
