Remy building his wardrobe
1. He started with a mid grey 130’s wool from CB, with two pairs of trousers. Solid start.
2. Step two we decided on a navy cotton from Solbiati. This cloth is perfect for him cause it is durable, light weight and it can be dressed up or down easily.
3. Image three is Remy mixing the two as he often does.
Stay tuned for his next commission, which is being cut as we speak……

We decided to dedicate this post to Graffiti in New York. Since we love street art and all the aspects that come along with tagging your own name on building around New York City. The risk, the audacity, and the pure heart of some true artists who risk freedom and their lives even just to display there artwork to all of NYC and the world of course. New York city has always been on of those cities that are staples in success. We breed a lot of young hungry creative people and attract those same type of people from other states/countries who are looking to make a name for themselves in many different fields of art. So with no more further words heres some great pieces we found.
