My Aldens

 

I always keep two pairs of Alden’s Cordovan in my closet at all times.

 

One pair’s worn down and beaten up, and the other pair, shoe-treed and polished.

 

They’re maybe the most versatile shoe in my closet.

The More Things Change, the More They Stay the Same

This weekend I was reading a great article in Fantastic Man about superstar stylist Joe McKenna.

 

This part of the article really struck me:

 

By his early teens, McKenna was scouring jumble sales with a school friend, trying to replicate the looks they’d seen on the pages of magazines like 19 or Honey. “Then we’d go back to my house, and I’d put a white sheet up in our loft; we’d do the hair and the make-up like we’d seen in her magazine,” he says.  ”And I had a little 35mm camera so we’d have fashion shoots. I don’t know what for.”

 

I’ve heard a lot lately from the fashion establishment about how different fashion was “back in our day,”  but the same desire that drove Joe McKenna to create these unseen editorials is the same desire that gave rise to fashion blogs today.

 

Had the technology been available, I bet Joe McKenna would have been a fashion blogger.

I caught her!

 

The second shot gives you an idea of how hard it is to catch a young lady moving very fast on her bike while I try to shoot her (moving slightly less fast) from my bike, all while shooting with a 100mm lens during a setting sun.
