The not-so-puffy down vest seems to be having a moment. (The weather could possibly have something to do with that.)

And just in time for any autumnal escapades, the newest arrival of Whillas & Gunn outerwear has landed at Smith + Butler with the Kingsford Smith Vest ready for action. It runs the gamut from outerwear (with its diamond-quilted waxed cotton) to waistcoat-ish (with adjustable side-pulls). And a knitted shawl collar that’s more useful than the typical floppy fabrics of most vests.

Consider it your fall accomplice.

It’s About That Time


We’ve been on the lookout for summer shoes since February, and with 125 days left until Labor Day, those white low-tops are looking better and better.

This beat-up sneaker from 3:33 caught our eye a while ago—although it looks like the Refinery29 folks prefer the plaid model. The plain white version sports just the right amount of wear, while keeping them bright enough to set off the cross-stitching on the front. It gives the shoe a vaguely medieval vibe, and it’s one of the better uses of pattern in a shoe we’ve seen all year.
