First Look: Oak Street Bootmakers.

A few months back, a good pal was in town from the windy city. In his Hulme travel bag, some seriously handsome, well made footwear. Samples of the debut collection from Oak Street Bootmakers. I was instantly a fan.

Empire State of Mind.

Looking forward to this. The time lapse video is nuts. Atlantic City circa 1920, built in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Boardwalk Empire. September 19th. HBO.

Debatable: 3Sixteens, 9 Months In.

I've been wearing these 3Sixteens for 9 months now. Head over to Denim Debate to have a look at their fading glory. (Psst. My jeans are up here. But more on that later.)

In Good Company: Hickoree's Hard Goods + J. Crew.

Having made the hike uptown(from Brooklyn, hence hike) the other morning to have a look at J.Crew's newest men's store at 1040 Madison Avenue, a curious thing has happened since.

Head to Toe: Covert Ops.

First Look: Baldwin, F'10 Collection.

I met Matt Baldwin a little while back at the Ace Hotel here in the city and we immediately hit it off. Matt's been all over the map but settled down in Kansas City(the city of fountains) and since, has been busy establishing himself as a true creative, multi-tasking force of nature in the Mid-West and beyond. Having started out as a legit denim line with a strong following, in just a short time Baldwin has now, with Fall '10, evolved beyond just denim, growing to include the key pieces that round out the discerning man's wardrobe.

I've been neglecting my duties here. It's August, summer's nearing an end, and I've been out in the sun and doing some other things.
So, hang tight. Enjoy the rest of your summer and let's meet back here soon. Real soon.
