If you follow us on Instagram (@leclubdesdouze), you already know that our find of the week is this pair of suede and chambray brogues by Hacter Concept (in case you missed the post, here it is). We fell in love with the French company because it is super creative but, more importantly, very responsible.
We love taking pictures. Whether it’s for the blog or to capture our weekend adventures, we try to take our camera everywhere we go. Although we are by no means professional photographers, we have been trying to take more original shots and try out new techniques. If you’ve been on our Instagram page recently, hopefully you will have seen the fruit of this labor, as we try to up our Insta game.
You know we’re suckers for Americana… For Olivia who’s from New York, it makes sense. But me? I’m just fascinated with the dedication to craftsmanship and quality materials of good ol’ American heritage brands. Today, we’re featuring the J Wingfield Company, which has been around since the beginning of the twentieth century.
We recently discovered the belgian magazine Abhras. We love their aesthetic and editorial line: “A magazine from the North, sartorial and independent, a curator of style“. Just like us, they like to discover new brands and quality menswear e-shops. And since they just came back from a trip to the Netherlands, we asked them to tell us about their 3 favorite stores in Amsterdam.
I’m going to be honest with you. As much as I love hats, I can’t wear them. Which is odd since my late Greek grandpa would wear a hat day in day out. And so does my dad. Even Olivia loves and wears hats. It’s actually her who told me about Tom Smarte when we moved back to London… I checked them out and I loved the collection.
