It’s almost that time of year, and inspiration’s everywhere. My favourites are in the detail: the unexpectedly bright sock, the lace cuff, the textured contrast. With lace and leather transitioning from summer and combining with the heavier, wooly fabrics for fall, the contrast makes an insane impact. Try it out, I’ll totally vouch for it.



I’ve been travelling a lot on the weekends–and weeks, and weekdays–it seems, but my $10 beaten backpack hasn’t been able to cope with the multitude of travels I seem to unfairly throw its way. And as all growing up trends seem to indicate, you’re just not a serious class act without at least a classic weekender.

With the weekender, you want to keep it simple: leather is nearly always a must, but it has to be a little worn, to show for its globetrotting past. For lower budgets, skip the leather, but follow the rest of the rules: Simple colour scheme (grays, camels, blacks, browns), no crazy prints. Keep it classic. I prefer to keep it unisex–I’m a big fan of the tomboy weekender. It looks tough, and durable–like something Scott Schumann might own. Which means, you just can’t go wrong.
