Workworn | A Shirt to Live In – Homespun

HS1-5

It seems that the good folks at J.Crew have gotten yet another thing right besides their now longstanding In Good Company collaborations and brand relationships. Joining the pack is Canadian newcomer Homespun Knitwear.

Based out of Vancouver, Homespun Knitwear is responsible for the faithful recreation of 1930s undershirts that are sure to take a beating. Having both long sleeve and short sleeve henleys, they are more versatile that one might imagine. Not to mention they are damn comfortable.

Using unbleached yarns and use of ultrasoft Canadian cotton, these shirts are sure too please. Think a James Darmody look without the skullcrushing tendencies. Do yourself a favor and get yourself a pair while you still can – you won’t be sorry.

The Viewing Room | Boardwalk Empire Threads

With the unexpected hiatus of Mad Men, it is safe to say Don Draper has taken yet another unexpected leave of absence from the offices of Sterling-Cooper-Draper-Pryce. This said, we maintain that the man on celluloid to be directing the style trends of the year, may well be the second best dressed man on television – Nucky Thompson.

The expertly designed costumes of Scorsese’s hit HBO series Boardwalk Empire, are brought to life by the wiry edge of Steve Buscemi as Nucky Thompson. As the cast of Mad Men step aside, Nucky takes center with his muscle close behind, or even, dare we say –  side by side. Michael Pitt embodies the character of Jimmy Darmody, a troubled Great War vet and tenacious young man enlisted as the muscle of prohibitioner Nucky Thompson. Fueled by his desire for success at all costs, he soon develops the taste for the bespoke suits of his successful contemporaries. In effect, the production has found itself with a late-bloomer of types, for the stylistically savvy duo to direct men’s style trends. (more…)
