BTW, LA Guy, I stopped into Market on Newbury today. Â What do you think of that store? Â I couldn't manage to drag my wife all the way down to Stels. Â The forces are conspiring against me from ever making it there.
I haven't been to the new Market on Newbury, but if the South End one is anything to judge by, it's not really my deal. Â I like my cuts a little cleaner, detailing more understated; and I have a thing for natural materials in interesting washes and textures. Â Market (at least the South End one) is really flamboyant, with lots of synthetics and really (imo) overly detailed pieces, and not really my thing at all. Â If you remember what I was wearing that day we met, that's typically me - earth tones and pretty understated streetwear with natural (as opposed to dayglo) greens and oranges for accent. Â Go to Stel's. Â Tell them (my real name) that I sent you. Â Check out their Corpus and A.P.C. jeans (if they've come in) as well as anything else they have on sale. Â Promise your wife something nice from there or a pair of jeans for Jasmine Sola (most extensive collection in Boston, except maybe at Jean Therapy) or something. BTW, there is an online coupon for 10% off non sale items at Jasmine Sola on their website (must print out) to make it a little below retail, and thus a little more palatable to our sport shopping stomaches.
