Not sure what a "Gladwell Audio Translator" has to do with me, but they're boom-tizz because they sound like 1980s car stereo.

I'm glad I got my split toe Aldens (cigar, not whiskey, but I think this style looks better in cigar - and dare I write it No. 8, too! - than in whiskey) in the early part of this decade. Inflation has not been nearly as steep as the price rise in these things.

Finally got a chance to visit Everard's Clothing in Glover Park (next to Sky Shoes) today, had an enjoyable chat with Louis and came home with a pink linen shirt labeled "Xacus" (never heard of them before, but they have nice fabric, good construction, and shanked buttons) and three Lehner pocket squares. He also literally gave me the white-with-blue-polka-dots linen Holliday & Brown square out of his blazer, after I asked him if he had any more that I could buy. Gave it...

Best coffee I've had in DC by far is the Kaiser Melange at Cafe Leopold over on M in G-town, by DWR and the bathtub store. Second best is the "chaipuccino" frappe at Tryst in Adams Morgan. In ATL there's Method over on North Decatur (Emory Village) and maybe Aurora, but everything else sucks.
I think Isaia's problem is that their advertising is horrible. And the recent logo'ing, with the red thread and stuff, makes them look like something sold out of a white van as "Aye-Taalyin." A pity, because their clothes are generally great.
Both woven leather and perforated shoes sound horrible to me. If you're going Vass MTO, how about a spectator boot? Weird, but could be interesting. I would just wear an Alden suede desert chukka myself.
