Linen: A Closer Look

Linen: A Closer Look

One look at our Summer Collection and it’s obvious that we’re enthusiastic about this natural fiber. For sweltering summer months, nothing beats the breeziness and breathability of this loose weave – you will literally and figuratively always be cool in linen. Our love of the fabric led us to a natural curiosity about its origins...

Vintage Style: Father's Day

Vintage Style: Father's Day

We often think that Father's Day gets short shrift - how many times have you simply let Hallmark mark the occasion for dad? Dad deserves glory too! This year we wanted to do something memorable for the men in our lives to commemorate all that they've done and give you a chance to win some...

The Cartography of Negotiation

Negotiation is one of those loaded words that is almost guaranteed to elicit a negative response in the average person. Some enjoy it, some hate it, and it’s essentially unavoidable as a modern human being. It’s also something most of us do every day without realizing it, which is ironic given the fear it strikes...

Perseverance: Japanese Tattoo at VMFA

Perseverance: Japanese Tattoo at VMFA

Perseverance takes shape in many different contexts. We attach certain personal experiences to such a word — experiences that exude an unyielding level of tenacity and determination. For artist and photographer Kip Fulbeck, the word is closely tied to the art of Japanese tattooing. In Richmond, we’re lucky to have such a forward-thinking, nationally-acclaimed museum...
The Art of The Home Bar

The Art of The Home Bar

As the summer heat rolls in and the thought of packing in a sweaty, crowded bar becomes less and less appealing, nothing beats an impromptu at-home cocktail hour with friends. The ability to swiftly whip up a refreshing Negroni or classic Old Fashioned from your well-stocked home bar is one of life's more satisfying (and...
