|We’ve had this one in the chamber for a few months now and it may be the right time to post before summer heat starts rolling in (crossing fingers). For God’s sakes, by the end of May the weather hadn’t really changed much since the beginning of Spring. For the most part it was moist mornings and leaky afternoons followed by sporadic days of sun. That’s Vancouver for you, predictable and unpredictable all in the same. This fit right here is put together for the nice, cooler days during the end of the season. It’s a look that again is full of essentials and also fairly easy on the pockets.
You don’t have to own every single piece that catches your eye (although you may want to). I think much of my style is appreciating those pieces that catch my eye but then being able work with what I’ve got. I don’t care what anyone says about snapback hats, I’m not a fan of particularly high crowns and this old Yankee cap from vintage retailer, F As In Frank, fits perfectly. A proud find of mine is my light washed Trucker jacket which I discovered at an old antique shop on Main Street selling for $16 no tax. Appropriately, I bought 2 of the 5 in stock. My Breton stripe pocket tee from Inventory Stockroom is one of those mandatory shirts for your drawer and has been enjoying all year round wear.
Once again, I’m not sporting any stand out items here except for the puppies I’ve been breaking in since the start of the year, my navy Trail Oxfords by Oak Street out of Chi-town. From the dawn of style, from sneaker head to runway model, every outfit begins and ends with what’s on your feet. As far as I’m concerned, you could be wearing a torn up khaki suit and still pull off your fit with a pair of crispy footwear. Oak Street is a fairly new but incredible boot-making company nonetheless. Responsive customer service, straight from owner George Vlagos himself, to the limited yet fine tuned line-up of hand-stitched moc toes and loafers makes this a shoe business to watch for the next century. Handmade goods means that there is an eye for quality control in every pair. These puppies don’t disappoint in any regard, they were super comfortable from jump and have been holding up impeccably amongst the elements.
