Thursday night after our Thanksgiving dinner we stopped by the Jane Hotel Bar for a drink. We've been wanting to check out the bar since the hotel was renovated last year, however the ballroom became known this summer as an exclusive party space with a line-up every night, so we opted to wait for the popularity to wane. Although the ballroom is apparently currently closed as they wait for a city license, the adjacent bar provided the perfect atmosphere for a quick drink with our NYC family.
If you're not familiar with the history of the Jane Hotel be sure to check out their web site.

In today's New York Times David Colman writes about the influence of late 19th century haberdashery in contemporary menswear. "As with home design, where curio cases, taxidermy and other stylish clutter of the Victorian era have been taken up by young hipsters, many of today’s popular men’s styles have their roots in the late 19th century. There are the three-piece suits once favored by mustachioed Gilded Age bankers; the military greatcoats and boots of Union officers; and the henley undershirts, suspenders, plaid flannel shirts and stout drill trousers worn by plain, honest farmers." Accompanying Colman's article is a slideshow of tintype photographs shot for the Times by David Sokosh. Our favorites are below.Tweet This

Via The Fashionisto, via Swipelife we found the Fall lookbook for the suit line from Bleeker St. We're not familiar with the label but the lookbook sure is dandy.
