Starting last Thursday, AIDS Action Committee’s Special Edition thrift shop, Boomerang’s South End, hosted their new spring, special edition sale. Then on Friday and Saturday Gilt City Boston hosted their spring warehouse sale at The Revere Hotel. I’ve included a few photos from the Gilt City Boston sale this past weekend.
While the sheer volume that Gilt City Boston had for shoppers looking for bargains was impressive, Boomerang’s South End spring collection is still available so check it out at 1407 Washington Street.
Blogger Large Tony has been working on ideas for his t-shirt company, Shirts-n-Grins. He recently shared some of his new designs on his blog so I checked them out and thought they were funny.
Perhaps you’d enjoy buying one for yourself or maybe as a gift for a buddy. Check out his site and let me know which ones you like.

In cities across the US, charities will be hosting a variety of fundraisers this spring. Some of these events will be very casual like the upcoming Taste of the South End here in Boston on Tuesday, March 4th, while others will be more formal – possibly requiring you to step up your game.
While nobody will fault you for a full Windsor knot, you can distinguish yourself and make your tie really stand out by selecting a less traditional tie knot. While there are many to choose from, I really like the Trinity and Eldredge knots. Thanks to Alex Krasny and his YouTube videos you can watch how to tie a trinity tie knot and eldredge tie knot.
My good friend and author of the visually stunning (not to mention delicious) blog, Frenchie and the Yankee, forward me the new video from Garçon Français, an underwear line from where else? France.
David mentioned this is his new favorite line of underwear. I don’t own any, but I trust David’s taste and I love the promo video. Check it out.
I want these (but I’ll take him – headless and all).

Can a hip, downtown Boston neighborhood be home to an iconic store Hollywood stylists and movie makers have on a short list but residents across town have never heard of before? The answer is yes.
Last week I was watching WGBH, Boston’s PBS station, when Bobby’s From Boston was featured. Bobby’s is just two blocks up the street from where I live, and apparently remains a relative unknown to local fashionistas who love “vintage”.
Bobby’s keeps no website and jokes that their store hours are “Closed until tomorrow 12:00 – 6:00pm”. This iconic shop located at 19 Thayer Street is one of the coolest stores I’ve ever visited. Located along the pedestrian walkway that brings thousands into the South End each Sunday for the SoWa Open Market, Bobby’s is just one of several very unique and truly one-of-a-kind shops worth checking out. PBS recent interview of Bobby is what spurred me to write this post. Below I’ve included an excerpt from his interview for WGBH-TV.
Now that it is summer I’ve noticed a lot of guys walking around with sleeveless t-shirts they have obviously cut themselves.
Max does a nice job explaining why you shouldn’t do this with a v-neck and gives tips on how to cut your shirts so they will fit you perfectly.
I’m not so certain about his suggestion for what to do with the cut off sleeves, but I’ll refrain from being critical because he’s so darn easy on the eyes.
