Healing from Handicap

There are two distinctly different halves of my life. The first half was one spent on operating tables, hobbling around on crutches for years at a time, finding ways to wear clothes that fit over the metal cage fixed to my leg (snap away pants–thank you), and patiently answering the same questions from curious strangers like “Oh, No, What Happened?!” Or, my personal favorite, “Oh, No, What’s Wrong?!”. The second half of my life hasn’t actually been a half at all– more like the last five years– and is one where I’ve gotten to know the simple pleasure of moving through life crutches-free and questions-free without orthotics, without unsolicited prayers of healing over my body in airports (yes, this happened often) without meeting someone new and waiting for the moment when we talk about why I’m on crutches, and without basing my life’s plans around future surgeries.

Three Looks with Eddie Powers

One night I was sitting at a bar with a friend (as many of my stories start). He mentioned another friend, a tailor, was meeting him at the bar that night. Five minutes later Eddie walks in. I’d never met Eddie before but without hesitation I said, “your friend is here.” I had never seen such well tailored jeans and perfectly fitted tee walk into this particular dive bar on a Friday night. By day Eddie is a Pattern Maker for Turnbull & Asser in New York and by night he lives in Greenpoint where you can find him fixing jeans, making garment alterations and gardening (as seen on @powersmade) Regardless of gender, I think everyone can take inspiration from impeccable fit and quality of clothes…

Hill City: The Gift That Keeps On Giving

Ahhhh. Tis the glorious season of… freaking-out-about-what-the-hell-to-buy-your-boyfriend-husband-friend-lover for the holidays. We know. We talk about it a lot around the studio. Swapping gift ideas and sometimes even stealing them from each other.

Recently we were introduced to the brand Hill City and we all breathed a sign of a relief. Despite our gift recipients being quite varied in their needs and styles, Hill City was able to satisfy everyone — and then some. I say “and then some” because we ended up wearing and loving pieces from Hill City as well. When you can share clothes with the men in your life, nothing is sweeter.
