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.
Selectism / Highsnobiety man about town Mr. Jeff Carvalho
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…

I want it all. Absolutely stunning.
Ha, I work for a publication that is produced by the same company as Magic. I never get to go, though! And I don’t have any connections on that side of the company. Damn.
Selvedge ties, handkerchiefs (a la hillside) and now scarves are frankly taking this whole selvedge trend way way way too far.
Man Relwen looks really sharp – I’m not familiar with the brand, but according to the website its carried at Len Druskin in Minneapolis – just across the street from my office.
Will have to check it out!
i could use a rubber boot full of scotch about now.
Those Steven Allen shirts are available now… In fact, I’m wearing the grey one.
boots and that low top suede desert boot are dope. end of story
Some great collections, I wish I could’ve gone but I had class and it’s still around 9 hours roadtrip. Another time!
Digging that reddish Steven Allen shirt, is it Oxford or Chambray?
Where are SeaVee’s manufactured?
the illest steven alan shirt
Seriously? Button snaps are played out. You must be a hipster.
Alpha is totally different. It looks amazing.
Hating on hipsters is played out.
