this summer’s uniform

as summer starts to wind down, i’ve noticed most days i stick to a strict uniform.  all the things you see above are items i actually own: imogene + willie barton jeans, j. crew short sleeve oxford shirt, timex weekender, ebbets field flannel cap, and tretorn nylites.  rarely will you find me wearing shorts unless i’m on the golf course.  i’ve also retired most of my polo shirts because of the man-boob effect.

what’s your summer uniform?  if you want to put together a kit and send it to me, please do so and i’ll post it below.  send it to coopsamuels@gmail.com.

tretorn nylite project

i’m a big fan of tretorn nylites.  i currently have 3 pairs (red, white and blue).  i’m a little disappointed that tretorn has not asked me to be part of their nylite project.  i guess i could go ahead and dye my own pair, but it would be a lot cooler if they asked me to do it.

with that said, i’ve got someone else who would like to be included in the nylite project.  meet james.  he’s my friend elliott’s kid and a hell of a dresser at 9 months.  check out those nylites.  he’s already on that next level.  get in line, ladies.

thanks for sending me the pics, erk.

new tretorn nylite colorways at sid mashburn

while doing some online shopping at sid’s tonight, i noticed they added a few new tretorn nylite colorways to their arsenal.  the navy/red have my name all over them.  if you’ve been waiting to jump on the tretorn nylite bandwagon, it’s time to get on board.  these are perfect shoes for the spring and summer.  you can find all three colors at sidmashburn.com.

 

late to the party

at the end of june i bought a pair of the navy waxed nylite tretorns.  i liked ’em so much that i had to grab a pair of the white ones.  i tried to order them in july, but they were sold out everywhere (blogger tipping point i guess).  zappos reloaded and i pulled the trigger.  i figured i’d start my own little nylite project since i wasn’t invited to their party.  currently i’m the only guest, but that’s ok.  you’re invited too.  i love these shoes.  their inexpensive, comfortable, and look great.

last tretorn post until next summer i promise.

tretorns have arrived

my “blogger shoes” as paul would call them arrived yesterday.  i apologize for doubling up on the tretorn talk this week, but i figured my new kicks were worth the time.  if you’re on the fence about buying some, do it.  you’ll love them.  they’re light weight and comfortable.  my only knock on them would be that they run narrow (length runs true to size).  as you can see the navy color waxed canvas looks exceptional.  i wore them for 5 hours last night and didn’t want to take them off.  i think i’m going to order a white pair too.
