‘What’s New’ Posts
Skies turn grey this time of year, but it’s also the time when you’re at your best dressed. Let’s face it, cooler weather allows for colorful and texture-rich layering feats, individual style touches like patterned scarves, fedoras, and of course elegant overcoats.
But you’ll be seeing grey other places as well, and in a way that will certainly lift your spirits.

There’s more than one way to be stylish. And given that we encourage all of you to develop your own taste and let your individuality come out in your clothing, this fall we’ve got more variety on show than ever before.
