Liberty is popping up everywhere this Spring/Summer. I remember when I was a little girl and my parents would take me to the Liberty shop in London during one of our regular UK visits. I would spend hours looking at bolts upon bolts of gorgeous fabrics imagining all the things I could design with it. When I saw this Supreme camp cap collaboration on Selectism, I knew I had to get some Liberty back in my life. Head to Supreme’s webshop to pick up yours.

My good friend Cary went gaga for these shorts from Gitman Brothers for Opening Ceremony when they were featured on Selectism recently. She wished that they had been made for women and I completely agreed. And then it hit me, why not wear them anyways! Get a smaller size, wear them a bit loose, roll up the hems, and you’re good to go. Women’s shorts are rarely made with as cool patterns as these and are too often made with puny 2in inseams (is it ok if I say “wedgie much?”?). Last summer Garance Doré made this look effortless and cool when she starting sporting boyfriend Scott Schuman’s khaki shorts. I fully expect to see Cary rocking these leopard printed ones this summer and looking absolutely amazing in them. Oh, and of course men are highly encouraged to wear them as well.
Selectism made my day with a first look of the Orvis “U.S. Patent” Collection for Autumn 2010. As my hometown (Manchester, VT) is also the hometown and birthplace of Orvis, I have the utmost appreciation for the company. The “U.S. Patent” Collection has gone above and beyond with a rather long list of items, including collaborations with Gitman Bros., Grown & Sewn, Taylor Supplies, Stronghold and many others. As Selectism so aptly puts it, “it’s a (almost exhausting) laundry list of the best that “Made in the U.S.A.” has to offer”. Head over to their post on the collection for more first looks.
I was shifting through some old editorials on Selectism and found a post on the Arrow Moccasin Company. Having always been a fan of the Quoddy’s Ring Boots, I’m now an even bigger fan of Arrow’s less hefty price tag. A true New England company, Arrow’s headquarters have been stationed in Hudson, MA for over 45 years and is still run by the original family. To see some great photos of the inside of their headquarters and of the materials used to make the moccasins, head over to An Affordable Wardrobe.
