INSPIRED show trends

last week i attended two menswear trade shows, project and appointment, to discover new brands and to keep an eye out for arising trends.  at these shows, I had the pleasure of meeting both lyndon from herschel supply co, who informed me that bloomingdales will soon carry their backpacks & emil from my favorite tie maker, the hill-side, who let me know that they're planning to open a hickorees store in BK in the very near future! yay!
