6 Questions For: Briar Vintage’s David Lochner

Whether you know him from Old City’s men’s vintage shop Briar Vintage, where he’s the managing partner, or from the Philly swing-dancing scene, David Lochner’s style is pretty recognizable. It’s equal parts Jazz Age dandy and dapper grandpa, made all the more interesting by generous swaths of tattoos.

We chatted with Lochner at his shop to get the scoop on his sartorial tastes, the vintage goods he won’t touch, and his inspirations. Cue nostalgia,  and a whole lot of style envy.

Monday Obsession: Make This Your First Sweater Purchase

Monday

While we’re all beginning to mourn the final weeks of summer, let’s not forget the light at the end of the season: September is in sight, which means crisp fall afternoons and — drumroll — sweater weather! (And yes, the prospect of a good cable-knit gets us very excited.)

Mark the beginning of the long-awaited season with an unexpected pullover that’s sure to be a cold-weather mainstay. The Alexander Wang sweater pictured comes from Princeton’s high-end designer haven Zoe. It’s available online, but we suggest visiting the brick-and-mortar and making a day out of it. (The soon-to-come fall foliage is to die for.)

Shopping details ahead.

That’s why we were thrilled when an email landed in our inbox proclaiming a limited edition design-your-own-shoes collaboration with Stuart Weitzman.
