What is your go-to OAK peice for the summer?
The Baggy Short in Linen. We were sold out last year by the time I noticed them and as soon as we got them again this year I grabbed a pair. It gets hot as hell here, so I’ve adopted a heavy linen summer rotation. And they look good with sandals and sneakers.

EightyTwo (Arcade Bar), I’ve been introduced to Little Death from my friends here, and museums and shit. I don’t have any profound super cool underground rad place i go to. I’m pretty easy.
