Bow My Soul

Thanks to Drinkin’ and Dronin’, I just found a great feature at honeyee entitled, “How to Enjoy Ties.” The photos document, much better than I could with The Bow Tie Project, how to give the bow an updated look. My favorite highlights a Band of Outsiders bow tie and an Arcteryx jacket.

Plaidy of the Week: Roséline of {this is glamorous}

Earlier this week, I featured her plaid lampshades. So taken was I with Roséline’s photos of women wearing tartans – wearing them in new and unique ways no less – that I decided to name her our Plaidy of the Week. At her blog {this is glamorous}, she offers a bit of the textile’s long, complicated history as well. And as style authority Sir Hardy Amies would say, “There’s no such thing as a designer of menswear — it’s only history.”

If the photos in my history textbooks looked this good, I might have switched my major.
