So I thought I would just make it Chai family week on The Sartorialist.

I didn’t realize that ,designer, Richard Chai and Odin co-owner Eddy Chai were brothers until Richard mentioned it during our conversation. I guess it makes sense, both have a great but unpretentious aesthetic and both are becoming very important figures in their respective fields.
If you haven’t yet checked out the new Odin store down at 199 Lafayette try to do it this weekend. The mix is great and they have a lot of great options for how to wear shorts and tees this summer and still look cool.
