So Context Clothing is this great menswear store in Madison, WI. Look, you have a new reason to visit Madison, WI. I check their site occasionally and have acquired some wishes.
I would like a pair of Momotaro Vintage Label 0701 Tight Straight jeans,
but they’re $285. So I’ll just have to keep wishing.
I’d also like to pick up this new issue of Free & Easy that they’re selling,
w/ Eric Clapton,
but it’s $31, kinda expensive but still a great magazine.

J.Crew’s new madras shirt:
I imagine many people making fun of me for wearing a shirt like this, but it’s beautiful I think. I love the giant blown up pattern.
…that’s what they should have called it.
When Men.Style.com was in existence, Tyler Thoreson and Josh Peskowitz started a great video program entitled In The Closet. Just two guys talking about cool stuff. Here’s the first in that series:
Garace Doré is French [Parisian].
Garance Doré is a photographer.
Garance Doré is Scott Schuman’s Girlfriend.
While in Paris this past fall studying, I dropped by Colette for a double t-shirt/book signing and well, let’s just say Scott Schuman is a fortunate man. Garance collaborated with The Gap to have an illustration of hers on a basic Gap t-shirt. Mr. Schuman was also there signing his recently published book, The Sartorialist. It was an experience to remember. Both of them signed my book and I got to shake Scott’s hand.
Everything was perfect – Paris, Fall, Scott and Garance, Colette, millefeuille afterwards.
