    ^ Pix are good.

    Went this afternoon.

    Many beautiful things. Liked Olch &amp; Spade &amp; Hillside ties esp.

    But the earnestness of the Americana style depresses me. There is pleasure in the stuff, and I like the artisanal/USA made focus, but a great earnestness &amp; lack of wit in many of the tastemakers and their adherents. Jack Spade was the exception, but a lonely one.

    Very true. It was kind of funny with everyone looking as if they were on their lunch break from the mill.

    I loved the McNairy blue chukkas.

    It was as if Pepper LaBeija decided to do a tribute to Cone Mills.

    Mauro's boys were nice.

    That too harsh. Just send me a bottle of whatever they were handing out and all is forgiven.
