Apologies for not updating regularly. From now on, I will endeavor to update as daily as possible (and once I get into a rhythm, the posts will pop up at around the same time). That being said, I would love to hear specific input from you readers about what content you like, what you think is mediocre and bad, etc. I would like this blog to be interactive rather than simply me posting things that I arbitrarily think are cool, so please, tell me what you’d like to see in the future, or even submit ideas to me about future posts. Many thanks.

One of my recent favorites

If you haven’t seen this website yet, it’s pretty rad.  The basic premise is simple: people post pictures of their outfits and can comment on or “hype” others’.  I was thinking about starting a similar website, and then BAM… ran across this site.  It started in March, so it’s only a few months old, but it’s got a dedicated and fast-growing community and a lot of people with style (greater amount of people without style, but that’s of no concern).  It’s not all girls too, there are some guys, but the male style is rather… well let’s just say it’s a self-selecting pool of males for a website like this.  Great place to find inspiration or judge people, your choice.  It’s invite only right now but if you leave a comment wth your email address, I’ll shoot you one (and then delete your email address from the comment afterwards).  Check it out.

Martin Margiela Dollar Wallet

More than meets the eye

More than meets the eye

Yes, yes.  I’m late blogging about this, I know.  But ever since I saw this wallet a few months ago, I’ve been enamored by it’s design.  It’s from Maison Martin Margiela’s Line 11 (accesories) and is a bi-fold leather wallet disguised as a wad of cash.  Too bad they’re all sold out (and at a hefty $395 price point I might add).  More pics after the fold.

Cloak A/W ’04

Fencing jacket

Pretty much awesome.  Kudos to Alexander Plokhov and Robert Geller for their groundbreaking design.  It’s a shame that Cloak didn’t last very long, but I think Robert Geller has continued to sprinkle his greatness around with his own line (which has my favorite bits of the Cloak collection).  Plokhov, on the other hand, has sold his soul to Versace (for a pretty penny, I might add).  Holy grail of winter jackets after the fold.
