Milan Fashion Week FW12

P1142582P1142583Michael Hainey, someone I pay close attention to in the way that he may wear a very similar suit (pinstripes in a tropical weight) in summer, and this in the winter, to the untrained eye it could appear as the same suit. Kind of genius, he found what he likes and sticks with it. I saw him a few days prior in a beautiful tweed suit, or herringbone. And again, in the summer I saw him in a almost identical blazer with jeans! You have to almost touch the fabric to realize the weights are way off! Side note- that’s a denim Charvet shirt!
P1142625I was feeling dudes colors. The head-to-toe didn’t quite do it like this shot did..P1142591Generally I have a hard time with fella American peacocks. Not Guerre. Dude is a real cat, out there because he loves what he’s seeing. While we can’t all ‘see’ the same thing, we can appreciate it.

P1142627I’ve been seeing quite a few of these crew neck cardigans. I like I think. (Tried on a more rugged one at Carhartt, now I want it)
>a href=”http://mistermort.typepad.com/.a/6a010535d07789970c0168e68c47bb970c-pi”>P1142670Rarely a pose, never a filter! Simone!P1142656Eugene, ok. So here we have an American in Milan. He’s no rookie, he’s been around. He could also easily be wearing anything any European editor is wearing but choses to wear jeans (pretty classic American), a duffle (ok, it’s a modernized version but still toggles & wool, pretty classic elements) (i photographed a dude (def. Europwan) wearing a sleeveless duffle. Now I know Eugene would never wear that..He also wears a blazer, not some way too tight or overly tailored Italian screaming blazer but what looks as casual/easy as styled fleece. Looks comfortable, but not as bumbish as I did (im not happy about that) How it should be under such a coat & paired w/ jeans…The simple fedora is a nice touch. He showed up in a colorful striped Supreme ballcap at this show last season. Respect.P1142691Much respect for youth in overcoats! Model boy after/before a show.. Sweatshirt is rad too.P1142702
P1142729One of those ‘trends’ i saw a hundred of and didn’t shoot but wish I had. I love the oversized varsity jacket coat! Reminds me of the Chloe one for girls. Kinda funny. He’s so boss with his studded(?) brief running into Missoni.

London ~ East End in Two Days

P7085245Love these low desert boots w/ the binding of wax or whatever. His short sleeved sweatshirts pretty rad too. He is siting outside the Albam shop which was a new to me really cool shop. Nice oxford banded collar pop-over shirts..
P7085276A new Grenson shop with a cool staff. I just found this article and y’all should really appreciate it!
P7085264Can’t remember dudes name right this second! Matthew?P7085261So sick.
P7085262My favourite. The Casper.
P7085270A Custy.
P7085315Different than the gal in Wiliamsburg or San Francisco in the same polka dotted blouse and cut-offs.
P7085346Hostem has got to be one of the coolest shops in London right now. Like many I saw, they kept the old exterior or made it look old…
P7095391Just some of the brands they carry.P7085371Labour And Wait. One of the coolest shops in za vorld right now. they even have their own section at Dover Street Market. They sell kitchen supplies along with Musc from Portugal and Face Cream for the gals. Both come in the same packaging it has been in since the 30’s.
P7085372Another beautiful building.
P7095453The only way to display shirts. At The New Republic this is what the shirts were displayed in. I will have one in my shop one day.
P7095529In case you thought I was no longer shooting older dudes who stay killing it. The guy on the steps is here to remind you..
P7095544Said his inspiration is all Jerry Garcia. Saw dude outside Levisons on Cheshire Street. Really great 2nd hand mens shop. For a more wordy description check acl.
P7095556A few great short sleeved Levi’s work shirts. Not insanely vintage but insanely good.. Not just because I work here but because s/s work shirts are kinda good.
P7095559I’ve always been a fan of sammy scarves. I wont get into the history of them..that the mods popularized them, but I been collecting them for years. It always amazes me to find so many in one store.. Long story short, the best scarf to wear all year indoor or out.P7095618Some hipness in them streets. But a good look, not mad. At least in London when its summer you can actually wear wool cap and not look stupid. ITS NOT AS HOT AS SAY WILLIAMSBURG where you’ll look like a fool in that cap in the summer heat.
P7105764A store I have covered here before but as it’s my favourite shop in London, and it’s been 2 yrs since I’ve been. I’ll share. Not alot has changed which is a good thing.
P7105804Some silk robes at their shop across the way which only sells pajamas, robes & ties.
