To my 194 friends who ordered MFAxEbbets caps: your long nightmare of waiting patiently is almost over. According to my contact at Ebbets, caps are going to start drop-shipping on Thursday and will hopefully all go out by the end of the day on Friday. US orders will take 4-6 business days, and international orders will take an unspecified longer amount of time (probably 8-12 days).
TLDR posted this a while ago, finally got off my ass and made minxa.com for menswear.
A lot of folks seemed to enjoy the $100 Starter Kits I put together last summer , and a confluence of good sales means it's time for Round 9. Most of the US is waiting impatiently for spring, so think of these clothes as an investment in the Future You of June, July and August.
This is the fourth installment of my WWYW test thread. The previous three seemed to do well enough, with plenty of upvotes. If this thread also does well, I will continue for another month and reassess from there
I usually do laundry on Sunday mornings, and as I was hanging up a row of identical Brooks Brothers ocbds, I started thinking about the question of brand loyalty. They're the only ocbds I wear, most of the jeans I wear regularly are LVC '47s, I have a dozen Ebbets caps and almost nothing else, I go to work and travel with one (or more) Filson bags, and from May through September I'm wearing a pair of Quoddy bluchers and Patagonia stand-up shorts 5 days out of 7. Part of that is the fit and quality, of course, but I'm not sure that's the whole story
This post in General Discussion reminded me that I'd written a little about espadrilles in the last $100 Starter Kit, and since I'm ready to start thinking about spring/summer, I thought it would be useful to reorganize and expand. First, a quick album of some shots I like and a few ideas for wearing them. Espadrilles are a relatively uncommon summer shoe in the US (except for Toms, which are overpriced and bad aid ), but Put This On has recommended them a bunch (and in a “Summer Style on the Cheap” post here too ) so it's hard to call them too preposterous.
Date change! The order window will stay open until Friday, Jan 25th After multiple discussions/votes by the community (and some great design work by zzzaz, yoyo_shi, and bayernownz1995), here's the final version of the cap we're ordering – MFA x Ebbets custom hat The final price is $24 for the cap + $5 drop-ship fee + $5 shipping per cap (in the US, $10 international) + Paypal fees. If you're from the US, that's a final price of $35.60.
During my time on MFA, it seems that many people are unaware of, and thus have some curiosity for when mentioned, British formal conventions. With this in mind, I've decided to write a brief guide on how to dress what is considered 100% correct in Britain. To our compatriots across the pond, many of these rules and conventions seem anachronistic.
Preface I understand why many people love raw denim.
