It’s almost buying-stuff-for-other-people season.
Which means one important thing: you need to take care of number one while there’s still time...
Where to do just that: Mirador, a spartan house of elusive handsomeness in Greenwich Village, open right this second.
Behind the potted palms and racks of vests here is a woman named Aurora, who originally set out to open a photo gallery. Fortunately for all of us, her goals evolved. Because now you get to check all this stuff off your list:
—Unspeakably cool Aztec-print Rocky Mountain Featherbed vests (by way of Japan) of shearling and leather and goose down.
—Some rare jackets and canvas backpacks from the surf-and-hike enthusiasts at Battenwear.
—Well-enforced foot coverings (or “boots,” as they say in the business) from the Maine-based boot gods of Yuketen.
—Guatemalan alpaca scarves (which just sound warm).
—From way out in left field, jeans from... Left Field.
Who you’ll channel with all this: yourself, in the best possible way.
When you’ll need it: ...
Need is such a strong word.
