Some Weekend Reading
Here are a few recent Coggins stories from around the internets.
-Sometimes getting a new pair of shoes feels like a commitment in a good way. You have invested in something that represents a good sartorial version of yourself. For my column at Artful Living, I wrote about shoes every man should own, which does not involve sneakers, which make men look like boys. Read the story here
-I wrote about some of my favorite things for my friends at L.L. Bean. You know the greatest hits but keep an eye out for the waxed cotton upland coat (waxed cotton is always right!) and the very cool commando sweater. Read the story here.
-More on the shoe front, when to wear them with or without socks (an important question). I weighed in with the masters of the boat shoe, Sperry. Read here.
-Casting a wider net, there was this fascinating review of the new Graham Greene biography in The New Yorker.
-Not reading, but head to Film Forum, where you can stream many new and old films. Getting in the mood for the little Eric Rohmer series that begins next week.
