Athens, Georgia – A scant few shots from Kindercore Vinyl‘s open house last Sunday afternoon. [Yeah, man…Athens’ has a record pressing plant.] Interspersed are shots of the threads I wore on this day. An outfit heavy with navy blue, denim and earth tone touches.

Live music from a couple of rave-fave local artists. Food truck action, hot ‘n ready, by Manila Express. Free swag [Or, is that redundant?] and cold beer.

A proper christening to new enterprise on wax.

The return of gauchos – All high waisted with full, cropped legs.

As funny as this admission may seem, I have been awaiting its’ return for more than a spicy minute.

Late last Spring, I picked up a denim offering via Citizens of Humanity, dropping a well-off person’s money at the counter. I panicked, shook it off and stepped high thinking the vintage look would not become a trend in the months to follow.

As of Summer, 2017 – this particular cut and style became the default every other merchant copied – from AliExpress to The Gap.

Gauchos worn with tall heeled boots. Gauchos worn with floppy bowed slippers. Gauchos worn with a nicely pressed button-down shirt. Gauchos paired with a light jacket. Do what suits you best. For me? Time to break from the pack and dye it black.
