Matt Singer

P1300404 as you can probably tell, i like the belts alot. That there is a monkey sitting on a scale, upset (its that last hole.)


Matt Singer and I used to work together b in the d so I was excited and a tiny bit proud to see he finally launched his own line. We got together recently and he showed me some of his work— long sleeve and short sleeve shirts in two-ply cotton oxford oxford cloth, some sturdy cotton canvas bags, and a crazy assortment of accessories—cotton canvas and suede belts, woven bookmarks, glass ashtrays, tie-dye leather lighter covers, and an eyewear project with Selima and the Thing Quarterly. What I like about Matt ‘s work is his mix of storytelling with design. His work has a distinctly American viewpoint but its feels fresh somehow. Whenever I see Matt he’s wearing something from the wrong season, a salmon colored belt in winter, but it works. The quality of the shirts is spot on, made in the U.S.A. The canvas brief has that elegant simplicity you find in old Longchamp bags. His website also has an interesting selection of short films for sale, a collection of vintage watches and there is a book section that he puts together with Idlewild Books. mattsinger.net

Fantastic Mr. Fox windows at Bergdorf GoodMAN ~ not to be missed

I loved this movie. Mostly because there are so many great double breasted looks. Everytime I feel like posting something like this, open and available to all to see, I second guess myself and google it. The Trad and focus on style and a bunch of others have covered these fantastic holiday windows at the Bergdorf Mens store. The picture is not even a holiday film… just love the wide wale double breasted corduroy suit, the gry chalk striped db suit and the camel hair db overcoat…

Some they got, some got away..

WwiianorakThis salmon colored anorak from WWII surprisingly wasn't snatched up by anyone ! StripedknittieBananavestbrimfieldBananavestbrimfield2BrimfieldBBshirtThis is one of the best Brooks Brothers shirts I have ever seen. I already own a few variations of this shirt by them, but thats not why I didnt buy it. I was beaten to it by the boys who were shopping for Ralph Lauren inspiration. I felt better when i saw that it was priced at $145. To make it worse, it was 14.5 (my size) and if all goes as it should, will be seen in a Rugby store near you. We can only hope and pray it wont be embroidered with skulls and flags all over it. These dealers make it way too easy, I cant blame these designers for not bothering to really dig, wether it be on ebay or our nations thrift shops. And by thrift shops, I dont mean WCGA or Stock.. Brimfieldhoodie I really liked the pockets on this guys pants and sweatshirt. Interesting how its not a full zip. Cant tell whats going on with the bottom of his pants, were they cut short? gathered? dont know, but they look good! His bag was super cool as well, but this is all you're getting.Crangi I like this shot of jewelry designer Phillip Crangi "shopping" in his green cuffed pants and green rod laversRpmbrimfield1 Dude from 45 RPM shoping.. I love sweatpants, I dont own a pair but have always wanted a pair. I really like how he paired them with rust New Balance, a flannel shirt and down vest !Rpmbrimfield2 Here with a trophy purchase ! I was watching forever to see who would become the lucky owner of this stripe painted oar.

Have never seen an orange one. Great way to layer in the winter and I find they especially come in handy in the Spring time. Check out his monocle. And as if the orange isnt enough, Check out this turquoise one.TurquoisechamoisBrimfieldcoupleSpendiesmailbagBrimfieldkhakimoccasinP1200780 I saw this fella carrying this here horse and asked if I could photograph it, He paid $400 and was "told" it was Pendleton. I didnt see a label anywhere, there was a tag on its tush, didnt say Pendleton or any company, just fabric contents and made in taiwan i believe. I hope it was at least made using Pendleton fabric but Ill never be sure.. Cool piece none the less.RpmtrophyBrimfieldpinksome more color out there in the fields.
