I never really thought of my blog as a fashion blog, and the more and more I continue forward with Simple Threads, the more I realize that it isn’t. It’s just a photographic journal of well made American clothing from some amazing brands with rich history. I’m not by any means fashionable, and I honestly am fine with that. I just like to share the wear & tear of the stuff I own. To show everyone else why it’s worth the extra money for nice stuff.
I’m sure most of you know of The Hill-Side by now. They handmake pocket squares/bandanas/ties out of creative fabrics and produce their whole line right in New York. I’ve been keeping a chambray bandana in my back pocket for about a year now – it looks rad, and can be worn in a bunch of different ways. Due to the horrible weather I am blessed with every single day of my life here in Florida, I tend to sweat a lot. It’s kept me looking somewhat presentable, and I’m thankful for that. The new line of Hill-Side accessories just came out a few months ago and I decided to pick up the indigo floral bandana for my lovely girlfriend. Not because she sweats, but because its got a really awesome floral pattern thats printed using a discharge method onto a rich indigo dyed fabric. This will definitely age well and look color the more its used & washed. Thanks Michael Andersen at The Woodlands for helping me track this down – it’s pretty much sold out everywhere.
