It was a long time coming, but, the world has finally come to it senses and is now bowing down to give praise to Brooklyn, the latest hippest it-place-of-the-moment. Take notice of the recent opening of the new Barclay Center downtown there. Jay-Z, the borough born rags-to-riches superstar rapper, entrepreneur and influential man-about-town, christened the venue with a series of eight shows each of which had sold out performances that drew crowds from New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and other exotic locales. I read recently that even in Gay Paris, the French have been overheard to squeal that anything super trendy these days is “Tres Brooklyn!” (and…said with a French accent??? I am President of the “Sucker for an Accent” club, mon cheries).
And so, it should come as no surprise that this week’s streetstyle t-shirt of the week is inspired by the energy and style found here. The t-shirt shown above, “Brooklyn Bloke,” is just one of the many dapper designs from a collection of vintage limited edition t-shirts you will uncover at the recently opened store, Impeccable Attire in Park Slope, Brooklyn. The term, bloke, used in the design above, by the way, is 19th century British slang for a man or fellow. Only the Brits!
Influenced by art and street culture, Impeccable Attire is a brand that conceptually combines European refinement with the dynamics of city life. As shown in the photos below, this is apparent even within the store’s decor…provocative yet modernistic with urban charm. This sharp crew is offering up a unique rhythm to their hustle and flow. On their savvy website, www.impeccableattire.com, you will discover a wide range of activities that span from snaps from upcoming collections (Spring/Summer 2013) to videos that include a documentary series showcasing the pursuit of passion in New York City. All worthwhile. All worth a look. Pop by the store and meet the blokes soon.
