San Francisco’s Department of Environment is launching a line of networked clothing donation bins, as reimagined by Frog Designs and Goodwill.
Each GoBin has a QR code that enables donors to access an online donation tax form, as well as learn about how their donations are creating local jobs through Goodwill.
Much more inviting than the old dumpster model, no? 

Sweet! Proud of my city pioneering this. 99percentinvisible:

What I Did Not Buy Today

It was a sad day today. I found the Isaia and Borrelli shirts above but they were just too beat up and not my size. Would have loved to have added them to my spring wardrobe. Also came across a pair of North Face pants with an old logo  I’d never seen before, likely 80s. 

There’s always tomorrow. What I Did Not Buy Today

Josephine Baker Pocket Squares

In happy weekend news, Drake’s full spring/ summer collection is now available on their website. Included are some summer shirts made in their newly acquired Rayner & Sturges factory, as well as some ready-to-wear sunglasses from Nackymade. They’ve also expanded their colors for grenadines (now boasting many shades of green, brown, and blue) and broadened their line of shantungs. In addition, the unique fuzzy mohair tie they introduced last season seems to have been kept, and there are some basic repp stripes to satisfy their more conservative customers.

Perhaps most interesting of all is their pocket square line. There’s a handsome cotton animal print that I think would sit well in the pocket of any tropical wool or linen sport coat, as well as a spring/ summer version of their tile print design. I actually bought a couple of their tile prints last season and have found them to be incredibly useful. The print is unusual enough to not overly match any tie, but also conservative enough to not stick out too much on its own.

Seeing double.

I swung by a reliable thrift store this week and scored some good shit X2. I asked one of the staff members what the deal was and she mentioned that the store Unionmade dropped off a few items that had some minor irregularities (hardly noticeable). About $700-800 total at full retail. 

Thanks Unionmade! 

In the pile:

2 Tanner Goods belts handmade in Portland
2 RRL denim shirts
2 Gitman Bros. Vintage OCBDs Seeing double.

Thrift Tip - Know Your Size

Seems pretty simple, right? But one of the things I’ve learned most since I started this Tumblr blog is how important it is to know your correct measurements. As I look through my closet, items I once treasured I now have no use for as I realize they are too short, or the shoulders are just too tight, or the entire cut is off by one size.

Get a tailor to measure you, or check out these handy PDFs (h/t to The Silentist via PutThisOn) and commit them to memory. As you scour eBay, don’t be seduced by an item if it doesn’t match up, no matter how beautiful the fabric or exquisite the corozo nut buttons appear to be. I made that mistake with the above Southwick jacket and after investing a hefty sum into getting it tailored, it just doesn’t fit quite right.

Not all measurements are created equally. In order of importance:

1) Shoulder: The costliest for a tailor to fix, and sometimes impossible to do so. Know your shoulder measurement to a T.

2) Length: Short jackets will make you look bottom heavy, long jackets will do the opposite. Ignore the trends and figure out what your “timeless” length measurement is. Some say the jacket should reach your fingers as you “cup” your hands, some say it should be halfway between your neck and the ground, and others just want it to cover your butt. Find out what works for you and stick with it.

3) Chest: A chest measurement a few inches one way or another should be able to be altered by a tailor, but know that a jacket with a bigger (or smaller) chest is going to be cut bigger (or smaller) all around, so be wary of overreaching here.

4) Sleeves: Frankly, just try to get close here. Most of us don’t spend our days in a robo-pose trying to show 1/4 inch of shirt cuff, so figure out your perfect sleeve length and stay within .5-1” either way. Tailors should be able to alter sleeves for about $20, unless the cuffs are functional or “surgeon’s” cuffs, which then becomes much more expensive as the jacket will need to be altered from the shoulder.

If your clothes don’t fit, then you won’t feel comfortable, and in that case what’s the point in wearing them anyway?

On point, thanks for sharing gents.
