To the Rafters: The Best Clothes We’ve Ever Worn

Clothes are so simple. Just fabric and stitching. And most of them stay that way. You buy an oxford you love in the store, but it ends up fitting funny in the shoulders and never finds a favored spot in the rotation. A T-shirt’s waist stretches after the first wash. Pants you buy online just don’t go perfectly with anything you own in real life. You wear them, because they still look pretty good, and you have to wear clothes. But they’re never more than fabric and stitching.

Then there are the favorites. The ones that become set pieces on the slow cinema work that is your life. Something you wore one time when the incredible happened, or all the time, when nothing much happened at all. Whatever the case may be, somehow, they gain meaning. Stretched hems and too-short sleeves become character points. Holes become history. Fades become wisdom. And these clothes become you.

All this rhapsody is to say that, recently, the Kempt brain trust was shooting the shit about our favorite all-time articles of clothing—the ones whose numbers we’d retire—and we thought we’d share our tales.

Get in on this with us.

What Is a Fedora, Anyway?
  • Kempt Staff
What Is a Fedora, Anyway?

The fedora has gotten a bad rap over the years, and most of it’s been due to the confusion surrounding what constitutes a real fedora.

Even though you’d probably easily recognize the difference between the proper fedoras worn by the Bogarts of yesteryear and the stingy-brimmed abominations of classic trilbies or porkpies worn by boy-band types and  lonely nerds when shown side by side, the stigma persists. And more than anything it’s a matter of ignorance—or worse, indifference—which is something we can’t let stand.

So, in the event you’d like to pick up your own fedora—in straw form for the summer, or in the traditional felt—we’ve put together this handy guide on what’s a fedora and what is not...

IRL: Bill Murray in Moonrise Kingdom

Summertime finally washed over the Kempt region this week, presenting two big dilemmas: how to look like you put some effort into your sweat-smothered outfit, and how to blend into a small, (presumably) cool island off the coast of New England.

This in mind, we turned to the oracle of all things effortless, Bill Murray, for answers—specifically, his quirk-meets-casual style in Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom.

T-minus your click to madras.

Timepiece Tuesday: The Pocket Watch Returns

Until recently, it would seem that the pocket watch had gone the way of the monocle.

But they’ve been popping up more and more lately, even in as disparate corners as Hermès and Shinola. Then, just last week in London, Tom Ford fashioned an Apple Watch into one and we couldn’t help but take notice.

So, in the event you’ve got a waistcoat—and possibly a bowler hat—at the ready, here are five pocket watches on the market right now.
