VMC Shop Looks - Via FREE / MAN
VMC started out back in ‘86 as the go-to vintage shop in the entire country of Switzerland. It should come as no surprise that with all of their experience and growth over the years from running a shop, they have a perfectly edited stocklist. I quite enjoy the mood and simple styling paired with the chosen combination of brands in each look.
The details on this shirt are some of the sickest I’ve seen in a while. Perfect for spring, this lightweight Japanese cotton with the yellow, blue, red, and green intricacies throughout really give it amazing depth and character. I would be irresponsible if I didn’t share this shirt with you because I feel guilty that GV is so dead-set on only making shirts for me. Available at Indigo & Cotton.
We are currently sitting in the in-between phase, as far as the temperatures are concerned. Some days its warm enough for light layers, the next you’re suiting up for the cold snap. The Classic Chore Coat from Tellason is the perfect piece right now. I wear it as an outerwear option on the mild days and as a mid-layer under a windbreaker or waxed jacket when the temperature drops. I keep coming back to these Burgundy Engineered Garments Workaday Cords and think they go great with this group of clothing. In all of my exploring, I’ve not yet found anyone else who can make this perfect burgundy colour and in cords more perfectly than EG. Which brings me to these Peanut Crepe Sole Bluchers from Quoddy, another class act. You could easily wear these three out of four seasons on the coast, which puts them at the top of my list.
LOOKS: DS DUNDEE F/W 11 - via FREE / MAN
“England’s DS Dundee is truly a Gentleman’s brand, so bringing it into our shop made sense. Focusing on classic, traditional British style and aesthetics, the brands focus is quite literally desiging with a distinct purpose. The woolens, tweeds, cotton moleskin and silk ties are all the perfect examples of dressing well for the cold months ahead.”
