Morning soundtrack. The new album is really good, btw, but now that's over and I'm on to the oldies.
I wore Kouros yesterday, and I'm still wearing it because it lasts so freaking long. I mentioned a few weeks back that I'd been wearing Jules more than anything else, without really planning to. It was part of a larger inclination toward classic fougere scents that I've developed over the past year or two. One thing about these scents is that I was kinda baffled by the idea that these fougeres were "lavender" based, as per the definition. I've always had a lot of lavender...
I'm surprised to get the anti-globalization perspective from a former Wall Street guy. What are these factory employees in Bangladesh going to do if not this? What's the path forward to industrializing these economies if not starting from the bottom? I don't know the answer, I'm genuinely curious to hear alternative views.
I think maybe the David Hockney style might be in the realm of what you're talking about. I picked up this sailboat sweater based on a picture of Hockney that I can't find now.
I noticed in the pics of the two CPO shirts that the flannel isn't shown with the collar up. Can you wear it that way or is the fabric too soft to hold that shape?
I wore Jules yesterday, and it occurred to me that I wear Jules more than anything else, by far. It's the thing I default to when I'm in a rush and I don't want to think about what to wear. It's not exactly a demur or retiring scent, but it somehow feels completely natural, as if it smells "like me." I never really had a scent play that role until recently, and I don't even think I'd say it's my favorite scent. Just an observation.
Check out the two Camoshita suits with the "easy" pants at No Man Walks Alone. Blue wool seersucker, and burgundy wool corduroy. Both are great, I want.
I'm a little late on this, but I've been wearing this Two Palms shirt all summer. Cheap eBay find.
I'm sampling Tom Ford Sahara Noir today. I picked this up mostly from reading the kafkaesque blog's long piece on amber scents. He compared this one to Amber Sultan and said it was mostly an amber scent. It really doesn't remind me of the Lutens at all. I wouldn't even think to call this an amber scent. It's an incense scent (I get the feeling that you Ford fans already know this). Reminds me of the CdG incense series. It's a nice scent, but I wouldn't dream of paying Ford...
I was literally 100 yesterday in Mt. Washington/South Pas
