Winter at Trove



Got a chance to swing by Trove just before the holidays and check out what they’ve been up to. Lots of exciting things in store like Masterson shirting, Norman Porter denim (more on that soon!), and some really amazing outerwear from  Manastash which seems to sell out anywhere it’s carried.

Chris Wright Cycles

I stopped by my friend and neighbor Chris Wright‘s frame building studio on one of those abnormally warm January days we had here in Philly. Unfortunately he was between builds so mostly what I shot were just some details, I’ll be sure to visit again when he’s working on something good but enjoy these for now.

Field Report: Trove General Store

This weekend I got out of the city to visit my new sponsor Trove General Store out in Paoli, PA, a suburb of Philadelphia. Trove carries a lot of rugged staple brands (Pendleton, Filson, Danner, etc) for both mens and women as well as housewares, obviously I was more focused on spotlighting the menswear offerings. Owners Foster and Charlotte did a great job on the shop which celebrates its first year of business next month. Read on for more details I caught during my visit.

Field Report: Indigo & Cotton

One humid August afternoon I found myself in the city of Charleston, South Carolina. Though I missed visiting the city’s well known menswear shops Billy Reid and Ben Silver I was really more interested in stopping by Indigo & Cotton. Located a little ways from the downtown shopping district, Indigo & Cotton is nestled on a fairly quiet residential area which seems like an appropriate location for such a shop. I think being located in the heart of a chain store shopping district would really kill the vibe that owner Brett Carron has clearly taken some care to establish with antique furnishings and vegetation. I can’t say that I’ve been to many stores with plants in them, nor such ample natural light- whose presence made these photographs possible.

As for the merchandise, Brett only stocks quality goods: Quoddy moccasins, various Hill-Side accessories, LVC denim, Gitman Vintage shirts, and so on. Check out Indigo & Cotton’s blog where you can also see some quality photos of their current goods and pay them a visit them if you’re in town.
