Its all about the pictures, but with Madisen joining the TYS team as Editor I’ve decided we can bring you a story now and again as well, so tell us what you think.
Roberts Fashion Week Essentials:
Running from covering Pitti, to Milan, to Paris there were many things I wish I hadn’t brought, but two things I found indispensable. In the name of speed, and sanity I stopped over in london between Milan and Paris just long enough to cut a suitcase, duffle, and briefcase down to an overnight bag. After my camera and laptop the first thing in the bag were my sets of Choctaw Ridge long johns and V-neck undershirt.
There are a million ways to get around the cold, a serious factor when your spending 12 hours a day in the frigid January Parisian breeze, but these Long Johns layer effortless, thoughtlessly and unless you choose otherwise, invisibly under your favorite pair of jeans. The warm, malleable and forgiving layer gave my day in day out denims a tactile feel you couldn’t find anywhere else but sweatpants, and thankfully without the sloppy looks.
The hefty waffle knit, robust ribbing, clean finished edges and bone buttons are indicators of a garment built to last. The shaped chambray yoke keeps down bulk at the waistline, the fit is close enough to keep you warm and fit under slim pants, but not skin tight.
The Undershirt is perhaps most remarkable in how true it stays to its name. No matter what I wore over it, regardless of neckline these slim shirts stayed out of sight and out of mind. Weather under a chunky sweater or bespoke dress shirt, they kept me comfortable, the laundry manageable, and in a pinch served as flattering casual top. Oh and its all made in the USA.
