FA2L is in awe of the very simple, very savvy website, Nerd Boyfriend. Using vintage photographs as starting points, the site reduces an icon's sartorial image to its basic components, and links readers to contemporary equivalents. This shot of James Dean playing Ping Pong, for example, will take you to J. Crew's heather poplin utility shirt; Steven Alan's short sleeve shirt; and James Perse's limited-edition Ping Pong table. We give the nerdy boy's communication skills an A+.
WELCOME TO FASHION AS A 2ND LANGUAGE: ARE YOU FLUENT?
FA2L is for anyone who cares about beautiful things–clothing, shoes, accessories, home furnishings–and the interconnected tribes of those who make, sell, market and desire them. If something speaks to you, buy it now or hold your peace: there are links in each story, so the item you want is just a click away. I'd like to hear from you, too: please view my profile, use the email button and send me your comments. –MG
