Pattern Mix Part I

One of our customers, let's call him Joe, inspired my first Blog about mixing patterns. This may be a store record; I count six patterns if you include the vertical pattern of the corduroy jacket. A striped tie is always a good compliment to a check shirt. The size of the Faire Isle patterned sweater is different enough in scale to both the shirt and the tie. The small dot pattern of the scarf (the Churchill dot) pairs well with almost any patterns. Good show, Joe!

Hobbies

We are continually impressed (and humbled) with the hobbyist skills of some of our customers. This is an example of one customer's passion for restoring antique automobiles, a 1926 Marmon D74 Dual Ignition (there are only a few left and probably none as well restored). The shop is meticulously maintained and equipped.

A few words about style.

Why dress in a stylish way? 1. To be visually pleasing to the people who look at you and 2. The sense of well-being when you achieve a personal style that is in harmony with who you are. 

Frank Sinatra sums it up when he admonishes Bing Crosby in the song You've Either Got Or You Haven't Got Style: “Some people dress like they want to get dressed, you just get dressed to get dressed".

Yes it is easier for some than others BUT we can all achieve a personal style if the desire is there and the effort made.

Dress well from a small space

 
 

This is the first Blog entry on our new website. We intend to edit these carefully, both in frequency and content. Most will be about our philosophy that it is not the size of the wardrobe, but about the "effectiveness" of the wardrobe. Our belief in clothes that fit, function and remain stylish throughout the life of the garment. Occasionally we will talk about how to take care of an "effective" wardrobe. Sometimes we will talk about things that we like and don't sell. Even clothing. And from time to time, we will speak about the companies we keep. The manufacturers we have developed long-standing relationships with that allow us to offer products that reflect our style and commitment to quality.

 

See you soon,
