Built to last vs. Built too fast
Deciding to dedicate the final week to those who have been kind enough to donate ties to this project, I donned my ever-worn Graham Withers joint for the understated blue tie on blue oxford button down look today. Paired the shebang with some selvedge Levi’s denim, the Modern Amusement peacoat, and my fave new shoes, the Yuketen Country Rangers. I’ll admit, as I am fairly unabashed in my day-to-day actions, I liked this look to the point of strutting for a few blocks en route to the station this morning. No one was around to notice, but I knew…. I knew. I need to take this moment too to say thanks to Paul and all involved at Graham Withers. I get to finally meet him next week in NYC, as well as a whole slew of y’all I’ve only met blogilogically. I copyrighted that word, btw.
See you in, NYC. Have you RSVP’d?
Also, details of the next community-driven project are in the final stages. I know I keep saying this, but they are. I just want you to stay with me.
