spring shirt options: j. crew

with spring right around the corner, i’m going to spend the next couple of weeks picking out some of my favorite shirts for the season.  i’m starting with j. crew because their stuff fits me perfectly and it’s great quality for the price.

out with the old

i realize i talk a lot of shoes on here.  no apologies.  they’re easy for me write about because they’re one of the things i update regularly.  with that said, i’ve been eyeing these ronnie fieg limited gray desert boots since december.  my old brown beeswax desert boots are a couple of months away from a hole in the sole, so it was time for an update.  the gray boots came on friday.  they’re incredible.  if you’ve got some extra funds and need a new pair of dbs, try the gray.  available exclusively at david z.

setting the record straight: mcqueen’s footwear

i realize steve mcqueen’s boots have been covered ad nauseum in the blogosphere, but the photo above made me check my facts again.  you often hear people say that mcqueen wore clarks desert boots in the great escape.  not true.  he actually wore m-43 service boots like the ones pictured below (click read more).  Continue reading
