Love this article on the “new dandies” of preppy style:
“The posts on Street Etiquette straddle the modern and the historical. Mr. Gumbs and Mr. Kissi, both 22, highlight specific themes — floral prints, the saddle shoe and so on — modeling them and detailing their history. They are careful caretakers, respectful students, tailoring loyalists and handsome models…
“The two men are the most prominent public faces of a new burst of black dandyism taking root in small retail outlets, niche fashion lines and thoughtful style blogs.”
You must check out the Street Etiquette blog.
“black dandyism”. Wtf are they talking about? I hate labels.
There is a BK Circus feet from my home on the corner of Fillmore & O’Farrell St. I am always lured into this place by the music that they play inside and outside of the small store. They’re website self-proclaims “A Shopping Experience Like No Other”, and I am compelled to agree. I chat up the guy who works there about “Watch the Throne” as N***gz in Paris plays on the system. We agree that the production on the album is ridiculous and it will take time to truly appreciate it. I try on one of there many awesome cardigans, but ultimately decide that I will wait some days when the fall line drops, as I was promised it would be dope.
I went to their amazing block party at which I got some pretty good footage that I’ll share with you guys sometime soon. This shop is literally just the best at everything. Every little detail from the best business cards I’ve seen to the best clothing website on the internet, which is a beauty in responsiveness and creative design. The vintage feel to the shop combined with the modern ear and style, this shop is an escape.
Follow their blog, hit them up on twitter @TheBKCricus this is an all around dope company.
Their Brooklyn store has the same feel.
Founded in 2006 by graphic designer Ouigi Theodore, The Brooklyn Circus is more than just a small clothing store hidden in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn. It’s a destination for open-minded forward thinkers that understand that style is another form of communication. Ouigi and his partners design and manufacture quality garments made in the USA. Their unique designs, paired with an incredible attention to detail, have earned them a devoted clientele from all over the world. Ouigi says that technology has played an essential role in the success of Brooklyn Circus because it allows them to engage and expand their audience in personal and meaningful ways.
