Flutter Portland-1

Flutter

Earlier this month, I spent a week in Portland, OR, one of my favorite cities in the United States.  I did very little shopping, outside of spending a massive amount of time and money at Powell’s Books, but one place I did stop in was Flutter.  The first thing I noticed when I walked in […]

Four-Point Fashion Assault 3 – A Spartan Resolution

Vogs in Space

I went to see the new Star trek movie last night. First off, it rocked. But that’s not what I’m here to talk about. I’m here to talk about Romulans, and how well-dressed they are. Sadly, I haven’t been able to find much information (yet) about the deconstructed layers of awesome or the half-hooded trench […]

Stylish Gent Roundup – April 2009

Stylish Gent had a good month – a month light on thedaniel, but we managed to struggle through somehow. “Bespoke” is the word of the month – can you be a stylish super secret agent without having at least one custom item? NAY I SAY. And now, the picks: Shirts My Way It’s fairly important […]
