“On matters of style, swim with the current. On matters of principle, stand like a rock.”
– Thomas Jefferson
Designer David Chiang is wearing a 100% cotton shirt from his label, National Standards made in Vancouver. David used to design for Ferragamo in Florence, a city we both love and lived in. National Standards menswear can be found at David’s Store, Motherland http://shopmotherland.tumblr.com/ in Vancouver’s Gastown or on Main St. The Motherland stores feature clothing made locally.
The Style-Diet Shot celebrates individuals with unique style, wearing at least one article of clothing acquired via the Stephens’ Sisters Shopping Diet. It must be local, sustainable, second-hand/re-purposed, inherited or ethically produced. If you can’t find clothing fitting that criteria then it must be from a country with stellar human rights records.
