I did the math, and this past week was my tenth trip to the desert for the apparel trade shows. Once you have been to Magic / Project / Capsule one time you are pretty much good for the rest of your life. So needless to say going ten times is aggressive. That said, I do enjoy seeing old friends and making new ones while surrounded by senior citizens blowing their Social Security checks at the slots. Since my pain is your pleasure I have good news and bad news for you. The good news: below are some of the fun things that I saw this past week. The bad news: most of this stuff won’t be available for until next spring.
Shoes from SeaVees.
A new collection for SS10 from military outerwear giant Alpha Industries. (Full disclosure, Alpha is a P+W client.)
Steven Alan wovens, selvage scarves, over-dyed shirts and ties.
Chambray color options, me wants.
Some tasty goods from Ohio based Relwen.
Leather boots from the folks at Cole, Rood & Haan Co. (Full disclosure, well, I think that is pretty obvious.)
More to come…
