“Hidden Harvest main filosophy is natural growed fabrics and and personal identity.”

So WordPress won’t let me do the snazzy things I want to when I try to post all of “micmac” into one post, so it’s split into two…:
It’s a pity for me that I have no reason to shop for men’s clothes – the Annie Hall thing is trop, let’s be honest, and even though I love a good buttondown to lie around the house in, I prefer those borrowed to bought. Nonetheless, I like nothing more than a well-fitting pair of men’s pants, tailored so that just a bit of ankle shows above a heavy leather shoe; a shirt with a collar that sits just right; a good wide wale to make me weak in the knees…. So as Part II of My Opinions On Sartorialism for Men, begun with HixSept’s collection Derive-Drift, here is Our Legacy‘s spring collection Hidden Harvest (this would seem more pretentious and annoying to me if it weren’t endearing Swedes who made all these clothes – part of the charm in my mind is imagining their healthy blond heads bent over work benches, cobbling perfect leather shoes and feeding thick enduring fabrics into Husqvarna Viking sewing machines late into the sunny Stockholm nighttime). Also it’s adorable how they’ve laid all the clothes out like that so carefully, the way I used to in Catholic school the night before rare days that we got to ditch our uniforms and wear whatever we wanted (stressssss!).
