Spring Capsule Wardrobe XI

This outfit is a true return to form when it comes to Lucindervention spring style.

the Rowing Blazers blazer

I ordered this Rowing Blazers blazer in the dark days of quarantine. Experiencing a violent urge to shop but also support small businesses, when the tony New York-based retailer put this blazer amongst the his and hers gun check and blue stripe on sale, I jumped at ordering them all. I love the tone-on-tone grosgrain binding and only wish there was another colorway. Maybe pearl gray with a maroon or pale yellow binding?

I had the good fortune of discussing Rowing Blazers with founder Jack Carlson in 2019 through the lens of sustainability. The local approach has always stuck with me:

Most of our products are made in the United States actually. The majority of our blazers are made in the Garment District in New York, and we know all the people who sew the jackets personally. Our woven shirts are made across the river in New Jersey, and some of our hats, ties and belts are made in Queens and Long Island. We make some of our other products in other parts of the U.S. as well: in Virginia and on the west coast. It’s not a hard and fast rule for us — we make some things in Europe and Asia too — but where possible we like making things locally or in the U.S. at least. We do this, because it’s best for the environment to produce locally, and because we can monitor production practices better when producing domestically.

the Sarah Flint natalie flats

As a 6′-2″ tall gal, I love my flats and these are the ones of my dreams. It should be no surprise that there are more Sarah Flint Natalie Flats in my closet than any other shoe. Between the black velvet, black leather, tan leather, navy suede, pomegranate suede, and floral jacquard, there is no occasion my Natalie flats cannot take me to.

The Sarah Flint Natalie flat is available in several neutral and statement hues across various materials. Having as many pairs as I do, I am an authority on the fit. For velvet and jacquard versions, go up a whole size. Consider going up an entire size in suede and leather versions; at least go up a half size. If comfort is a question, know that the shoes have three millimeters of cushion in the sole. Wearing them feels like walking on a cloud. The break in period is minimal at most.
