I actually had to put on a sweatshirt the other day. Does that mean it’s fall now? I hope not. If it’s fall where you are, tho, try this hemp/organic cotton track jacket, complete with thumb holes.

Friday Movie: Fried Green Tomatoes

Another classic, but one I just saw for the first time last week when I stayed home sick. It’s amazing to me that many of the reviewers and commenters didn’t see a lesbian relationship – it was plain as day to me. I guess it goes to show that you’ll see what you want. Maybe that’s why my parents had no idea I was gay until I sat ’em down and told them … Anyway, if you haven’t seen it, it’s a fantastic film. And I’d say Idgie is a great model of 1920’s butch fasion, too.

Go watch it or read the book

Go get yourself a nice pair of pants over at the Brooks Brothers clearance. It looks like they’re getting rid of the odd sizes, but if you poke around you can probably find something in your size. But for the love of god, stay away from the pleat fronts. My favorites are:

Irish Linen Plain-Front Trousers, $64

Plaid with Deco Plain-Front Trousers, $74

Silk and Wool Plain-Front Herringbone Trousers, $124

Clark Plain-Front Seersucker Pants, $45

Country Club Plain-Front Luxury Gabardine Trousers, $99

In case you haven’t gotten your fill yet of plaid, short-sleeve button downs, here’s another one. The material is all recycled, and it’s got 40-SPF sun protection. It is also a slimmer fit, which is good for those of us with narrower shoulders.

$69 from Patagonia

Lucky knows what’s up when it comes to button down shirts. I really like the print on this western one here.

Havaianas and Threadless team up to ask – electric or acoustic? How about both! These guys have been making flip flops for like 50 years, so I think it’s a fair bet that they know what they’re doing.

$28 from Havaianas

I don’t have any shirts requiring cufflinks, nor do I attend functions classy enough to call for them. I still love them. Here’s a very nice pair from a self-described dyke owned jewelry studio.

$140 from Mio Studio
