UNIONMADE is one of those stores that keeps me coming back thanks to their ever evolving and ever growing stock of impressive collaborations and must-haves. A recent browse yielded two specific items that most definitely warranted a little Sart Inc face time. First up is a really interesting take on their already popular varsity jacket collaboration with San Francisco's own Golden Bear. The varsity vest is not for everyone, but is a great example of multiple styles coming together to create a "new classic", so to speak. It's something you don't see as often as varsity jackets or vests and is a bold entry into the Americana canon. While I'm not sure I could pull it off, I can appreciate people putting their own unique twist on beloved items and I can for sure appreciate that tartan lining. Next up is a shoe that is as surprisingly hard to find as it is not so surprisingly perfect. Alden's beefroll penny loafer speaks for itself - it does not need any clown on the internet singing its praises. But, like I said earlier, it is surprisingly hard to find for whatever reason so a shout out was necessary. It seems that Alden accounts are so focused on exclusive makeups these days that they neglect to stock up on the essential to end all essentials. Whether you want black or brown, you're covered. UNIONMADE - don't sleep on 'em.
