Trapunto Stitching

i have been a fan of TRAPUNTO i guess since GEOFFREY BEENE and GIANFRANCO FERRE-i've seen it used a lot while i've been researching Hausa Outfits and think i like it in doses.

Hausa pants

so when i left the apt today-which btw is above a bar/horse betting parlor-there was the African dude in a shirt and the pants of a Hausa outfit-his was a tie dyed navy spiral pattern and also they were awesome-i'd sport them with what i brought with me-white poplin shirt-brown striped tee kimono fabric sash and heather grey tee/sleeve do-rag-ps i need a haircut!!

keep it chill and chic

a cooler to carry my PBR's and Jaeger shots that i won't be mortified to rock on the train this summer.

having a "TOUS LES CALEÇONS" moment

there was a terrific underwear brand back in the 80's and while i was checking out a fabric shop on Rue Herold i remembered they had a shop around the corner-sadly it's long gone but it was hot-best men's longjohns that we rocked out on the streets
