A Statement of Purpose

There are a great many blogs out there which will gladly talk about fashion. Wear a scarf! Get some tight jeans that somehow hang baggily off your ass!

The name of this blog is intentional - I fully admit to being somewhat of a snob when it comes to clothes. I like nicely made things, usually brands that have a nice mix of aesthetic and practicality. So in that sense I can be labeled an elitist. But I enjoy work wear fashion - jeans, good chinos, military inspired fashions - clothing that as designed to be worn by people who care how it serves their needs, not how it looks. I hope to fill this blog with pieces I like, write ups of companies I respect, and people and places I find interesting.
