I just wanna say that it's 2024 and I'm still waiting for the Alex Vanderpool Era, which we were promised over 30 years ago.
They mention that in the podcast!!!

Spoiler alert: I fear that you'll be waiting another 30 years for that.

Absolutely yeah, and they go into all of that. Bivens was only 22 at the time and all sorts of his plans were dashed.

Sudden Impact was definitely his way to get back at Maurice Starr for stealing their money and capitalizing on New Kids on the Block.

I listed the the first 1.5 episodes this evening. I think it's good so far, but it's a lot more about the host's narcissism having been on MTV "at its peak" (I disagree about its peak, that was the Yo! and Headbangers Ball era) and less about Sudden Impact, BBD, or even Boyz II Men so far. I hope it gets better.

Yeah he goes off on a lot of tangents... there's also some totally unrelated guests who's only connection is the general timeline. But he gets to the meat and potatoes in the middle episodes.

Corso NL Leader.jpg

Our Best Jacket Design in Years
Inspired by Dickie Greenleaf.


The Corso is an elegant casual jacket with a mid-century vibe. Inspired by Dickie Greenleaf in The Talented Mr. Ripley, it's a brilliant match to dress trousers, casual chinos, and lightweight denim.

This piece effortlessly splits the difference between a tailored sportcoat and a casual outerwear piece. It's going to be a versatile asset to your wardrobe.

The Corso Jacket has one-to-one sizing with the Doyle Jacket. It's fully lined with two interior pockets. The 2-way hip pockets have opening on the side. Its front and cuffs close with light horn resin buttons.

For this delivery, we have four varieties of lightweight and four-season wools. Inventory is limited and these won't be restocked, so definitely check them out! Use the code below to take 15% off for the next few days:

corso15
And if you ordered trousers or chinos in Pendleton Wool or Jade-Turquoise... these are the exact same fabrics in the exact same dye lots. So you can easily craft a rad 2-piece look by adding this jacket.

SF Corso Jade.jpg

Woven in Italy by DiPray, this is a gorgeous blend of 80% wool and 20% silk. The yarn has an intricate micro raindrop herringbone pattern with a mix of teal, smoke and ecru tones. It's a mid-weight fabric with a great drape, and it's wearable all four seasons. The silk content gives it a soft hand and a nice subtle sheen.



SF Corso Navy Pendleton.jpg

Corso Jacket in Pendleton Navy Mid-Century Wool: $285

Imagine getting a flawless vintage garment from the 1960s. The cloth has that old-school weight and matte finish. It drapes perfectly and has a inimitable style that you simply can't find today.
This beautiful pure wool gabardine from Pendleton delivers that exact vibe. Although it was woven in the early 2010s, it's heart and soul are firmly planted in 1965.

We've sourced a limited quantity of this handsome deadstock cloth. It was woven in Pendleton, Oregon of 100% virgin wool, sourced in the USA.

Its has a distinct twill weave, a dark navy tone, and a smooth matte finish that exudes vintage American style. Its 9oz weight is just a touch heavier than the typical suiting cloth, and its comfortably wearable all year round.



SF Corso Ghost1.jpg

Corso Jacket in Italian Lightweight Ghost Donegal Wool: $285

Woven in Italy by DiPray, this donegal tweed is a lighter weight weave of pure lambswool. The base tone is pale light grey, and it has subtle multi-colored flecks of scarlet, gold, and royal blue. It's wearable for three seasons.



SF Corso Latte.jpg

Corso Jacket in Cafe Latte Gingham Tropical Wool: $265

Woven in Italy by Delfino, this beautiful lightweight tropical wool has a soft medium brown tone and a micro gingham pattern. It's perfect for warmer days and makes an excellent outwear piece from early Spring to mid Fall.

Its tones are a brilliant match for khaki, olive, and navy chinos - and it looks fantastic with lighter denim.

Contuning with unrelated pop-culture posts, today is the 38th Anniversary of "Heavy Metal Parking Lot."

It's a short documentary shot in 1986 outside of a Judas Priest show in Maryland. It's an amazing snapshot of that time.

Also as the parent of a soon-to-be teenager, I'm grateful that 15yo's no longer look like they're 25 and smoke two packs a day. I mean, at least not all of them.

If you've never seen this, you're in for a treat:

Not my scene, but I moved to Silver Spring, MD in 1985. I saw a bunch of games and a few shows at the Cap Centre. Never heard it referred to as Largo. It was always Landover as far as I knew.

The girl who talks about backstage passes has a Baltimore accent that hardly exists anymore. It's really amazing.

Working on Kamigata's and selling lots of Fox Brothers this week! More on the second part later.

I'm overseeing a bunch of orders being packed today and playing music at full blast, and we've been listening to synthwave since 9AM. For anyone who doesn't know this music.. it's a synth-heavy retro 80's sounds, and there's a ton of great acts in the current scene.

Amazing videos too. I've been really enjoying this one:



Anyway.. Kamigata's going online later today! I have pics on the dress form for the launch, but I'm shooting them on a model tomorrow as well. This is easily the best and most varied delivery that we've ever done for this style. They're freaking awesome.

Hi, Eva - any plans to offer “staple” custom shirt fabrics on the website, like classic oxfords, white, blue, etc.?

LAST CALL FOR 20% OFF FOX BROTHERS
Hey guys,

Our discount code ends at midnight this evening (Thurs, 6/11). If you've been thinking about ordering one of these beautiful fabrics, then this is the best time to do it!

You can see the four categories (sportcoats & suits, trousers, Doyles & Tebas, Overcoats) at this link.

Use the code fox20 at checkout for the 20% discount.

If you're unsure of sizing but you want to get your order in, just make your best guess and write "Hold for Sizing" in the checkout notes. I'll follow up later this week and we'll nail down your sizing. They need to order the fabric from England - which takes a week or so - and we won't lose any time if we spend a few days determining exactly what you need.
