PTO recently published a piece on the survival of small traditional menswear shops like The Andover Shop and O'Connell's. It's worth a read if you're interested in traditional clothing's place in the current retail climate.

Anybody else pin their button-downs?

but only when I didn't like how the original collar laid
That's actually what inspired me to do it today, though obviously I like the look in general, otherwise I wouldn't have the pin handy.

I think I will continue to do it in the future.

It's not very Ivy style
It's interesting you should say that, as it was by reading ivy-style.com that I was able to come around to the idea.

I would suggest that it's very traditional. Collar bars and pins have been around for a very long time. However, if we're talking about the heyday Ivy style (say, collegiate style from around 1945 to 1965) I've seen little evidence to suggest that they were worn commonly by students. The principle, very generally speaking, is to look slouchy and nonchalant. A collar pin is neither of those things.

Did anyone else see the "letter from the president" of Allen Edmonds that went out in a mass email today? Phrases like "embracing the new world" and "redefined attitude" had me rolling my eyes out of their sockets. A cursory look at the new offerings and collaborations with "Artisans of Freedom," a Made in America effort, seemed to reveal mild changes, however. Perhaps more of an emphasis on rugged shoes and clothing with boots, rubber soled shoes and leather items. Southwick will be making at least some new clothing for AE. Most of the old styles are still available.

And on another note, ever try charcoal pants and seersucker? That's a Southern Fall, Caustic Man style.

Yes, also received the "Artisans Of Freedom" email from the new President of Allen-Edmonds.

For some reason, "Artisans Of Freedom" reminded me of this local restaurant.

With apologies to @Caustic Man, who thinks my car is not the best looking car he's ever seen.

On the off chance any of you are around here and are looking for Liberty Station, it's near the corner of Carefree Highway and North Scottsdale Road.
