::Urban Safari::

     I was in San Francisco this past week for SF Pillow Fight 2013.  Let's just say it was an interesting sporting event.  Shopping is a must when I'm in town.  Scotch & Soda is one of my favorite brands right now and they recently opened up a boutique, so I had to check it out.  Think of their style as everyday staples, but with a little edge.  Definitely a must stop shop if you're ever in The City.

     It's always a little suspicious when you walk into a store holding pillow cases, but the guys there were great and super friendly.  Networked with Josh, one of the workers there that designs men's accessories on the side.  Will hopefully be working with him and showing his designs in a future shoot.  



     I planned on doing a shoot, but didn't really know what to wear.  The Boss has been hounding me to get some distressed jeans.  Scotch & Soda to the rescue.  It's always a tough balance between quality distressed jeans and looking like a meat head or old dude rocking jeans well past his distressed jeans prime.



Yes, that's the tag still on the shoe.  Oops.

     






     
     The shirt-jacket is a great Spring transition piece.  Workman safari style jacket was a great clash against the street jeans and formal split toe shoes.  The jacket is similar to Carhartt's attempt to tap into fashion.

After the shoot, I found this great wool flower lapel pin.
It added a great pop of color and visual interest.
