There's always one or two pieces I like each season, but the overall direction of this label just confuses me.... plus the prices have reached the point where they're just not worth bothering with anymore.

A good, casual men's hat (ie non cap) is extroadinarily hard to find (at least in Vancouver). Is the bucket hat dead this season? Was looking everywhere and found almost nothing - its all caps and douchey straw fedoras. Eventually got a simple Kangol trilby - not bad, but kinda wish I didn't have to settle (with hats, buying online isn't an option - really need to see how they'll look on me).
^ Good advice. To me there's still some selected pieces (off the top of my head: deck pants, chore coats) that are tough to make work unless you commit to that aesthetic 100%, but (as has been said) I don't see the difficulty in working, say, a chambray, plaid flannel, peacoat or work boots amongst classic American brands. If it's the really idiosyncratic workwear details that are throwing things off, look for designers offering more modern interpretations on these styles.

^ Agreed - to me it's more a once or twice a week visit, rather than daily. I dislike the way the site was built too (especially the reliance on popups for features etc). And amen on h(y)r too... the newish one (Simon) can write fairly well, but the others are in dire need of an editor.

^ Me too. I'd like to see someone outside Japan pick up Old Joe & Co. and Marchercher as well.
