A Menswear Double Life

For me at least, this whole menswear thing has become a sort of double life. There’s the part we proudly tell our families, friends and loved ones about, and then there’s the part that we bury in the backyard next to our "fan art", team jerseys and unfinished screenplays. Sid Mashburn makes these reliable, but ever attractive corduroys that you can wear this Kwanza without embarrassing your entire family. To your long suffering folks they’ll look like an inoffensive and smart enough pair of trou. But to you and I they’ll be end on end, pick stitched babies made with 11 wale English corduroy. Now keep it together and resist the urge to wear them with some HBA x NIke moon boots. Festive colors included.
