“Your body is not a word, it does not lie or speak truth either. It is only here or not here.” From one of my favorite poems, Their Attitudes Differ, by Margaret Atwood.

LETTER FROM THE EDITOR | JUNE 20, 2011

ALLOW ME TO EXPLAIN [An historic JGC retraction/apology]: Over the weekend I posted an open letter to the sales staff at Louis after my team had another unpleasant interaction with them.

ACROSS A CITY FROM YOU, I AM WITH YOU*

I have not, regrettably, spent altogether too much time in Provincetown since my move to Boston about three years ago (read: I HAVE NOT BEEN, WHAT IS THIS MADNESS?), so you may or may not find me at Marc Jacobs today drooling over the photographs in the compendium.

Meet David Chum, the designer behind Selahdor, and be among the first to shop this Boston-based label’s latest collection.
