Where the runway meets the street

Do we have a special place in our hearts for basics and knitwear that go well beyond the normal found in modern day basics. Hells yes, we do. When it comes to sweatpants, crews, and undergarments, their quality, build and performance must be as outstanding as classic shirting and outerwear.

In the midst of all the high fashion and tailoring at Pitti, we discovered the Riding High label from Japan. Straight up: their collection of undergarments and crews were some of the best we’ve seen in some time. It is almost expect when you have a company that focuses solely on making the very best basics around. Check the grey cardigan, the stitching detail on collars and you’ll see why we’re excited to get our hand on Riding High this Autumn 2012.
