Bureau Spring Summer 2008

Bureau Logo

A maritimed up collection of warm-weather swag, Bureau’s the handiwork of a former Greige designer (Cory Gomberg) who found inspiration in the “leisure pursuits of JFK”, i.e., yachting, having nice hair, and poon. Skirt-chasing begins with Nantucket-esque outerwear: sports jackets triple-stitched in ribbed poplin, and a half-waist Regatta Parka made from cotton sailcloth w/ resin “sail finishing” — making it resistant to UV light and water, but offering little protection from bolt-action riflery (too soon?). As for shirts, Bureau has you in lightly-hued seersucker gingham check shirts, henleys, and button-ups made from broadcloth, a premium cotton first developed in medieval England (whose only other “premium” offering was plague).

Available at Bloomingdale’s, and Oak, Odin.
