American Apparel Wool Club Jacket, Disco Pants, Beanie + Polka Dot Socks and Splendid Men's Sweatshirt.
What can I say, I am a sucker for basics; who makes better basics than AA and Splendid, both who just happen to be in L.A. Yes, I am a sucker for Los Angeles! If you been to my blog enough, you know about my fascination with things made, and based in LA. These two companies, even though they are completely different, are true to that statement. Plus, they give me hope of creative / design jobs staying in North America (any job for that matter).
These are not your basic basics, take for example the well known Disco pants (literally if you don't have it, go get it, they are the comfiest pants I own). If you aren't familiar with Splendid, give it a chance, don't be afraid to check their men section as well, I personally love it. The weather here continues to be cold and rainy. I am so ready to drop down the layers and be warm again.
