Archival is in New York for (capsule) this week. Nicole and I/Lesli spent the Saturday before the show checking in on a few favorite shopping haunts. Our best find of the day was a navy duck, Engineered Garments Service Coat (half off at Nepenthes). Winter seems to be the time for sample sales and generous store discounts. Armor Lux (my staple for stripes) is selling a large batch of made in France, cotton nautical tops for $39/each. Here are a few low res snaps from our day trip. More reports to come from (capsule) proper. The full Archival team of Tom, Lynn, Nicole and Lesli will be assembling tomorrow to set up for the show.
