Shades from Urban Outfitters
This #NYFWM was all about indie love for us! We caught up with a few emerging talents amidst the menswear vets who run the game. Dockers sponsored a league of bright young designers with courageous points of view! We loved Ricardo Seco and Kenneth Ning. Leaving the Ricardo Seco presentation, we shot a quick post with our friend and favorite photgrapher, Purcell Nurse. The light in the nearby parking garage was good to us. Let’s be real, it was dark out and the shades were by no means for function but more like FUNction…lol.
It’s sweater season!
Don’t sweat(ER) it:
We are big into sweaters! We probably acquire at least one new significant sweater (2 between the both of us) each winter Season which we think is an extremely important for those looking to build a healthy collection. It’s a cool see how your personal sweater style changes from year to year.

3 Tips for proper Sweater care and maintenance
-Dry cleaning is always the best option but some sweaters, even the ones made of wool are hand-wash friendly.
-Pilling: you can painstakingly pick hundreds of lint balls from your sweater or invest in an electric pill shaver. You won’t need to shave your sweater often, probably once per winter
- If wash friendly, hand wash and lay flat to dry to avoid stretching
-Don’t hang them, fold and store.
-Cedar planks are a great alternative to smelly mothballs and do a great job at warding off hungry moths and silverfish.
-if you have been attacked by our white winged friend or their friends, silverfish; there is a solution! In NY, we have www.alterknitnewyork.com
. They are knit-gicains at alter knit and also generous priced!
Happy Valentine’s Day Sweat(ER) hearts!
