Featuring R. Culturi


I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: dressing is a form of art.  Art and menswear go hand-in-hand.  Craftsmanship, detail, purpose, feeling, etc., are all relevant characteristics for both worlds – worlds that tend to intertwine together almost organically.  Few brands in today’s commercial market are able to capture such a sequence, but many on the up-and-up have…

Quick Trip to NYFWM SS17


Things have been slow on SxN.  Due to recent life events and a new job, the last couple months have been reserved to the (mostly) daily updates on instagram via the old iPhone.  With that said, there is no shortage of content if you have been following along on social media, but the editorial fix has suffered.  Although I can’t…
