……..

last week, i stopped in to one of my favorite shops in new york, billy reid.

they have really well-designed, thoughtful clothing for men (and women), most of it is made in the USA and the look is “southern-bred.” they were having a promotion and so i spent some time poking around their beautiful store on bond street. it’s the sort of warm, hospitable place where i’d like to kick back and relax in one of their leather chairs for an afternoon, with fleet foxes playing on the stereo and a glass of bourbon in my hands.

    Sounds quaint and lovely.
    Don’t you love it when you walk into a store and they are playing your music?
    I instantly feel kismet with the shop owners if they are playing something I love.

    This place looks so great. I’m going to have to check it out when I’m in the city in a few weeks. I really like the one with the decanters, something about the hazy light.

    Oh, clothes… a long list waiting for those… but that’s later:) Fleet Foxes, on the other hand, cannot wait!:)

    Hey, which camera is the one you hold in the third picture? Looks like a Canon AE-1.
