Does anybody else love Lemaire’s work?  His clothes are both beautiful and sensible.  I’ve been following his twisted seam pants throughout the seasons.  I feel so lucky to finally own a pair.

The denim is thick and buttery soft.  It’s the most comfortable denim I’ve ever owned.  They would fit a range of body types and sizes well I think.  No one part of the pants feel at all constricting (I can’t say that is true about the Kamm pants which look amazing but are not forgiving of any extra flab you might have).  I love how they taper out like a wide leg and then ever so slightly taper back in.  It’s such a modern shape.  They run long.  I had to chop 3 inches off the length.  They look good long too if you’re looking for something that covers the ankle.

I’ve finally road tested these HOPP oxfords and have to say I’m really impressed with the comfort.  They have fairly thick rubber soles which is important for walking through the dirty sludge, salt covered sidewalks in NYC (you can still see the salt stains in my photos here). I find myself walking even faster than I normally do in them (after 9 years in NYC, I walk pretty damn fast).

What do you guys think about me never showing my face?  Sometimes I really wish I could show myself but my profession requires that I don’t (I’m a psychiatrist).  I always assumed my readers would implicitly understand that but maybe not, so I figure it’s  worth explicitly saying here just in case.  It’s not that I’m shy or think I’m ugly.  I simply can’t do it.  I figure it’s not that big a deal anyway.  It’s about the clothes and my thoughts, not my face.  Although I can understand the value and desire in seeing the person behind the blog.
