It’s On Sale: Ledbury Shirts
Gilt City National has a promotion for Ledbury right now, where you can purchase $ 150 worth of store credit for $ 75. Customers have a limit of using one coupon per transaction, but may purchase up to two coupons.
Note, Ledbury is an advertiser of ours, but I genuinely think they make nice, well-made shirts. The best part about them, in my opinion, is the slightly lower second button on the placket, where you’d button up the shirt. It allows you to wear the shirt a bit more casually without having to risk looking like a disco dancer. (Not that we have anything against disco dancers).
If you’re not yet a member of Gilt, you can use our invite link here.
Across A Wire: Live In New York City
Excellent two CD LIVE set in a double digipac. Discs are loose as tabs on trays are broken – Art graded just FAIR. Light scuffs on discs will not affect play.Too much too soon is the m.o. of so many bands who, thanks to the fleeting fame that accompanies music-video breakthroughs, are famous before their time and has-beens five minutes later. You could be excused for thinking that’s the case with Counting Crows, darlings of both MTV and VH1, who here release a double concert CD after only two studio albums. But you’d be wrong. The set, an acoustic disc recorded for VH1′s Storytellers and an electric one from MTV’s Live from the 10 Spot, proves how well the oft-bootlegged Crows have earned their reputation as a smoking live band. It also shows how elastic their rambling and evocative songs can be, some of which appear on both discs but in vastly different arrangements. People may tire of vocalist Adam Duritz’s perpetually-wounded-soldier-of-love act, but this is one band whose success was hard-won and is richly deserved. –Daniel Durchholz

Real People: City and Country
As part of an ongoing series, Put This On will be featuring real men with great style.
Alex in Seoul has a typical conservative business dress look that is actually more colorful than you’d think at first glance. Against the background of a dark grey suit, the burgundy grenadine tie sits against a blue pinstriped shirt. Overall, the look is balanced. If he’d attempted to go with a pocket square in blue silk, it’d push the outfit over from CBD and into more fanciful territory. The white pocket square to me shows restraint — in a good way — that makes his city-appropriate outfit work.
Meanwhile, Andrew in Atlanta has a country casual outfit that I immediately found intriguing for a variety of reasons. Most noticeable is the jacket, featuring four patch pockets on the front — including one button-down flapped pocket on each breast. Because the sport coat is a woody tweed though and has other refined county jacket details like a throat latch on the lapel, it actually doesn’t look as outrageous as it might on a different fabric or context. Paired with grey flannels, a button-down collared shirt and a knit tie, the outfit as a whole has a cohesive look for the outdoors.

The album was nominated for three Blitz Awards (the Portuguese equivalent of the Grammy) in the categories of: Best Album, Best New Project and Best Male Vocalist. And in an end-of-decade retrospective of national music, the prestigious newspaper Publico considered Flowers And The Color Of Paint to be one of the ten most influential ‘Portuguese’ albums of the 1990′s. In 1997, acclaimed Hollywood director Antoine Fuqua used the song in the soundtrack for his feature film The Replacment Killers [released by Columbia Pictures] starring; Mira Sorvino (academy award winner) Chow Yun-fat (academy award nominee) and several other known actors such as Clifton Collins Jr. and Michael Rooker. Because of difficulties in obtaining rights to some of the other songs appearing in The Replacement Killers, there was not an official soundtrack release for the film. The original pressing of Flowers And The Color Of Paint by Movieplay Records was only 1500 copies. Ironically, despite the song’s obvious cult …
