Ladies and Gents,

The “Special Feature” I mentioned a while back has now gone public.

My talented friend Carlos ask me, as a Men’s Wovens Designer, to participate in what will be a series of videos discussing fashion staples.

In this premiere video, you’ll watch four people who work in the fashion industry discuss the Button Up Shirt and it’s affect on society.  Keep up with the Gents Among Men blog for lifestyle posts and the continuation of the series.

Enjoy,

Ellie

Pattern Theory has officially opened up shop on Etsy as of today!  

I’m taking my textile designs to another level where I can share it with everyone.  Pattern Theory Shop will carry a variety of products from accessories to home decor, all made in Brooklyn from my hand-carved blocks.  And of course everything is inspired from this colorful, pattern-obsessed blog.

More to come soon, so share with your friends and family!  These things make great gifts for men, women, and even pets.

Thanks and Cheers,

Ellie

Dear Friends and Followers,

I opened up an Etsy shop selling block printed things.  For all you #menswear folks out there: here’s where you can get some truly crafted Made in USA goods, like bandanas for neckerchiefs.

Enjoy.

Many clothing items have been found to contain hazardous chemicals. Some of these chemicals break down to form hormone-disrupting chemicals which can then be released into waterways around the world. Traces of carcinogens released from dyes have also been found on some garments.

Fast manufacturing pays a toll when these toxic chemicals are discharged into waterways in surrounding communities.  Companies need to take responsibility and take action.

So far, Nike, AdidasPuma, H&MM&SC&A, Li-NingZaraMango, Esprit and Levi’s have taken a pledge to DETOX their products.  

Help spread the word.  Buy less.  Buy locally made products by companies you trust.

Sick new OUTLIER photos.  Emiliano Granado freshness.  BOOM.

"Minnetonka Takes Manhattan"

My friends, the Wenck Brothers, filmed and directed this summer anthem style video for the infamous Minnetonka Moccasins, a shoe company based out of Minnesota.

[For the record, I actually grew up in Minnetonka, Minnesota]

Well this is “Wes Anderson Style” if I’ve ever seen it.  Absolutely love it.

Museum of the City of New York presents: Worth & Mainbocher

"An on-line exhibition featuring 119 stellar works by two masters of the haute couture - Charles Frederick Worth (1825-1895) and Mainbocher (Main Rosseau, 1891-1976) - and exploring the garments’ histories, details, and construction from the outside-in."

This will give you a newfound respect for the art and craftsmanship of fashion.  The pieces are simply spectacular.
