Hello everyone! It’s been a while!
First off, thank you for your immense support over the last 4 years, it’s been unbelievable. I’d like to say thank you to all those who have stuck by even when I wasn’t posting anything for months at a time. I’d also like to thank the people who have stopped following the site, it means a lot to have had your attention.
I want to share what I’ve been so extremely busy with in my prolonged absence, which is mainly: my work. About a year back, I got the opportunity to do some traveling with my job. It took me all over the U.S. for the better part of a year, and from there I got the chance to live in Europe for three months. Not everyone gets the chance to do something like this, so I’m extremely thankful for the wonderful and expansive opportunities that I’ve been given. In my travels, I had the pleasure of meeting some of the most amazing people, eat at the most mouthwatering restaurants, visit famous landmarks & museums, and even fall from a 30 ft high tree.
It’s been quite a journey.
Although being gone from home for a year was a great and transformative experience in my life nothing beats being back home. I’ve missed my best friends, family, and (especially) my girlfriend. The irreplaceable things in life. Now that I’m back in Miami I hope to continue sharing the things that I love and support to interest, intrigue, and teach of new things that you should be on the lookout in style, music, art, etc. Above all, I hope that you stick around too, I’m just getting started.
Once again, thank you!
General Knot & Co. known for their unique fabric combination for ties, using vintage textile and producing in limited runs in the United States, presents “The Heritage Lookbook.”
"What is the essence of heritage? It’s being built by hand. Hands of makers who understand the craft and know that what they do gets passed down, not passed over. Strong belief in quality and even stronger ties to the people who make them. General Knot presents the new series of pieces set in old town. Made of vintage fabrics that have stood the test of time, each piece is a testament to the buildings that surround them. Timeless and lasting. This is the old world, when things were made the way they should be; just right."

Feit release their latest effort for Spring 2014, the Double Stitchdown. Feit are definitely on top of their game, they are my favorite shoe brand at the moment. Here are a few words from the guys:
While the usual Goodyear Construction requires that the upper be tucked underneath the footbed and then hand stitched, this Stitchdown construction sees the upper turned out and hand stitched onto the top of the footbed - twice. This results a more robust and chunkier look for the coming season. All FEIT shoes have been made by hand by one master craftsman. Once a pair is complete the shoes are then signed and dated on the inside of the tongue.
