A little while ago, we got an email from Barneys New York wanting to interview The Urban Gentleman for Barneys.com. And of course being the historic and iconic store they are we were very obliged and honored to do so. Check out "The (anonymous) Urban Gentleman" interview, as they playfully say, HERE.
We're excited to be one of the very first men's fashion features, on, or should I say "in" the famous Barney's Window. Side note: I didn't know there was so much "mystery" around The Urban Gent team, lol, but for those who don't know us: Kanayo King, Cindy Samoht, ( <— we're the main two) and there are a small handful of contributors (and a meticulously expanding Urban Gent family) who help make The Urban Gentleman possible. (special thanks to Jean and Max).

Most of you know chambray is an essential. But we're taking it up a notch this Spring/Summer and taking chambray to our shoes, jackets, and accessories. (Random Fact: Though seemingly so American, chambray was actually originated in Cambria, France– which is also where it gets its name from; chambray is also known as cambric).

Sometimes you'll put an ensemble together and later on realize that you look like an old school polo booster kid— that's what happened here, lol (unintentionally RL from top to bottom, I even think the socks are RL…). We were in Pittsburgh last week, too busy to really hit the city, but we made our way to a few spots. One worth mentioning was a vintage spot in Squirrel Hill called Avalon Exchange. Unfortunately I left my camera the night we went, so there aren't any in-store photos, but we purchased a few pieces– vintage Wrangler vest, lightweight baseball jacket, creme Members Only jacket for the Spring, and a few other pieces. (oh, and shout out to all the Steelers fan– the only time I see that much black and yellow in one place is when I'm at a Georgia Tech game, and even then I see more old gold & white than black and yellow).

We had these pants for american workwear , but never had a chance to use them. So, I put this together… its moreso for a mild winter day (and falls more inline with the basic: plaid, slim-fit pants, canvas trends).
