Return of the Button Boot...

Here is a sneak-peek from my second fitting of the First Street Style / Cleverley of London collabo, which spawned this ill return of the classic Button Boot. We went in feet first on this one!  I should have the finished product in January '11, so stay tuned.

Guy Ritchie for Dior Homme starring Jude Law

sea + me = peace

Kuroshio Sea... the world's second largest (Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta is the largest) aquarium tank is located within the Ocean Expo Commemorative National Government Park in Okinawa, Japan. 

My fascination with all things aquatic endures like lines at the dmv, and so it is that "life is good, but living is better!"

Minutia matters...

Behold the stance of his shirt's collar...

...and the monogram on the left stomach section,

and the undone sleeve buttons.

Contrary to popular belief, it's okay to sweat the small stuff when it comes to matters of style. This is the beginning of the journey that leads to style. Hence, a further foray into the understanding that "life is good, but living is better!"

The Art of DE... Adrien Sauvage


At the ripe age of 27, Adrien Sauvage has become a force for reckoning on London's fashion scene. Once a formidable foe on English hardwood, Sauvage unlaced his sneakers at 19 to lace others with style. The young visionary stylist has teamed with debonair English radio and TV presenter George Lamb to form a unique brand that dwells on the outer boundaries of fashion's traditional structure. The first collection titled, "This is Not a Suit," is a harmonious gumbo of modern proportions and styling seasoned with a dash of Savile Row's fabric staples. This is evidenced with the surprising pairing of Prince of Wales plaid with baby corduroy. Sauvage has been promoting the line with photography that can be seen on his website, Witness some looks from the collection after the click.

Sauvage has also applied his styling to the world of cinema for a dynamic experimental film titled The Art of DE. This exclusive sneak peek was featured on Nowness.
