Today’s must-reads from around the Internet.
The brick-and-mortar—not to mention, a lot of handsome hardwood—shop is a veritable menswear bazaar of grail pieces you thought only existed on achingly beautiful Tumblr pages or in some secret back alley in Naples. (Not to fear, there’s an e-commerce arm in the works.) It’s the brainchild of Brian Trunzo (of Nice Try, Bro menswear Internet fame) and fellow former attorney Matt Breen, who’ve been cultivating their shared passion for menswear since their days as law school roommates. And the Internet buzz did not disappoint: there’s custom Southwick and Alfonso Felipe suiting, all the Bastian/Ovadia/Italian silk one closet could handle, vintage watches, luggage, the list goes on. It all makes for one well-heeled feast for the eyes, so without further ado:
We’ve been gushing about Todd Snyder’s fall/winter gear since February, but this morning we finally got a chance to see it up close. There’s a lot to like, starting with this peacoat made from oiled moleskin instead of the usual nautical wool. But that’s just the beginning…
The perfect fall blazer is a beautiful thing. Pick up the right one, and it’ll be the most versatile item in your closet through to December—equally at home with denim and wool, wingtips and sneakers. As for finding the right one, we’d opt for an outfit that’s either very old or very good at faking it…
For instance, Southwick—a New England shop that’s been stitching together made-to-measure jackets since the 20s.
And since Jack Spade just drafted them for a mini-collection devoted entirely to blusterproof suiting, you won’t have to bother with the measuring tape. The full collection includes camelhair topcoats and hopsack blazers, but the prize is this wool herringbone jacket—a prime example of one of the best fall pieces out there.
Now all you need is a scarf and a pile of leaves to walk through.
