The Cabana Shirt

The Cabana Shirt

Written by Tony Sylvester 

There’s a very famous photo in menswear circles that does the rounds every year as people start gearing up for summer. The iconic Hollywood leading men John Wayne and Gary Cooper stride toward us on a sun drenched patio, Wayne cigarette in hand, Panama hat with rolling brim perched just so, Cooper in ankle lace espadrilles, short shorts, a small suitcase in hand. Both men are wearing variations on the classic Camisa de Yucatan, the traditional summer shirt of Central America. Inevitably, the poster will hashtag it “vacation goals” or some-such.  Despite its omnipresence on the web, it is impossible to deny it as an evocative portrait of dressing well for the heat.

The Care of Knitwear

The Care of Knitwear

Written by Cassandra Harada 

Before we begin the yearly shuffle of our spring wardrobe out of hiding, let us all take a moment to have a sit down with our beautiful woolens. While you’re cuddling with your sweaters, and feeling grateful for how they kept you cozy through this difficult winter, I’d like to talk to you about mending of the knitwear. If you live in Asia, perhaps your sweater met a carpet beetle, and offered it refuge and a tasty snack. If you’re in the west, your favorite scarf might have fallen prey to a moth or two. You could have even just snagged a sleeve on a fencepost, or a stranger’s hand bag. There are a million ways our clothing can receive damage, and while the temptation to fling the injured knitwear into the rubbish heap and buy something new is high, I hope after reading this little tutorial, you’ll realize that by mending your clothing, you can add a bit of character and personal style to your wardrobe that money cannot buy. Today, let's “darn” one of my favorite jumpers that has a bit of damage on the sleeve.

Old Forms meet New Norms

Old Forms meet New Norms

Written by Ethan Newton 

As we have turned the corner on a new year, we mark nearly twelve months since the norms that we have taken for granted came to a halt. The social occasions we dressed for have largely been curtailed, our lounge rooms have become our boardrooms, and loungewear in turn has seen a new lease on life.

The history of lounge wear echoes with stone floors and high ceilings, persian rugs and velvet drapes in the homes of the landed gentry. From monogrammed velvet slippers to embroidered nightshirts, usurping these artifacts of traditional haberdashery are where we have lately been finding some elegance in the new norm of our society.
