Here at Gear Patrol’s Style Desk, it might look like I’m just shopping all day. You’re not wrong, but I like to think I was hired for this skill. Yes, skill. My resumé even says I’m proficient at it, along with Excel. It was a skill that I mastered while working private practice as a retail therapist.
My expertise in curation has led both me and you here, to a list of the best style releases of the week. Sure, my eyes are bigger than my wallet, but this is where I offload my excess browser tabs and pass them on to you. This time, it’s hand-blocked batik shirt jackets, badass sandals that could scale a mountain if you need them to, ’50s-style bowling shirts and much more.
