On the first day of December I visited the Ford Models offices here in San Francisco to scout candidates for a possible photoshoot. I have been dying to shoot the Burberry Prorsum studded jacket on the right guy! While browsing some of the new faces, a photo shoot featuring snowfall caught my attention. It dawned on me that I was wearing full blown Spring attire on what should have been a brisk winter's day. San Francisco's late summer barely lasted a week, and my spring clothes feel a little cheated. Living in actual seasons is another reason why I am excited to move to New York.
Behold my re-furbished PS1. To my dismay (or perhaps my mistreatment) my PS1 had gradually faded to a brown color. It was lovely, but the smoke color was one of the main reasons I bought the bag. To get the leather conditioned, protected, and back to its original hue, I dropped it off at Anthony's Shoe Repair. They are pricey and the service is not the greatest (I had to wait 4 weeks after they quoted me 2), but it was worth the wait. My sad distressed bag came back almost factory fresh. Actually, I have to break it in again, only this time the color should stay.
