Commonwealth Proper X The Selected Few
Remember that trip to Philly a few weeks back? Of course you do. We shot a video about it. Craig gives us some chill insight on the brand, his approach and tumblr. Hope you all enjoy.

[rb for cirq6] Floss Game For Your Hoofs!
Since we’re on the subject of shoes and since it IS the season for many black tie or otherwise formal events, we know you may be having some difficulty selecting a suitable shoe for your hoofs.
As you browse through your selection of Hirokis, Uncle Ralph PL’s, Bocache’s, Scarpe di B’s and Barker B’s, nothing might strike you as being sleek yet distinctively dope enough to rock with your bespoke tux (except maybe, those leather and stingray dub monks from Hiroki and even then, dub monks aren’t really the style of choice for formal are they?)
No, what you need is something that’s a little more daring. Something that’s dope, maybe even unexpected and something with the power to freeze normal humans in their tracks when they see it…
May we suggest then, that you call across the pond to the shop of Foster and Son and place an order for these insanely flossy hoofs? Lesser known than their compatriots Lobb and Cleverley, many smart minds say Mr Foster and his young ‘un are just as good or even better. If these pieces are any indication, we might be tempted to agree!
Drop these on and step into the holiday party like you own the joint (and for heaven’s sake, wear some clean socks!)

Savile Row Part 1 of 3
Great series by the BBC covering a transition on the historical Savile Row. In this episode they cover the impending opening of an A&F flagship store and what it may do to the rent. They also cover the business side of being a Savile Row tailor, which really peaked my interest. The series also covers some of the new blood on The Row by visiting the homie Patrick Grant of Norton & Sons. Very detailed series. I can’t find parts two and three. Will post when I find.
