You may have noticed that things have been a little quiet around A Boston Blazer over the last few months. That's because Gabi and I have picked up our things and have moved across the country to explore some new ventures in San Francisco, CA.
With those changes for us come some changes for A Boston Blazer. We'll keep featuring local Boston brands and collaborations (likely through the lenses of some friends back home) but will also feature some of what the fashion scene is like out here in California. We'll be highlighting SF's best menswear stores, brands and street style looks. The goal isn't too change the aesthetic of our photos and illustrations dramatically, but rather infuse some of the unique "California cool" into our New England prep roots. Anyway, stay tuned for lots of beautiful photos, look books and drawings that you've always seen from us.
The first shoot I tackled out here was with the fine folks over at Thursday Boots. You may remember them from their "Product of the Week" inclusion with us way back last winter. Well, since then the brand has dramatically expanded their line to include some handsome new boots, wallets and belts. The brand is growing quickly and shows no signs of stopping, so we're proud to be along for the ride.
Featured in the photos above and below are the following boots and wallets:
- Black Captain Boot ($199)
- Natural President ($199)
- Black Duke ($199)
- Natural Chromexcel Belt ($80)
- Natural / Rio Latigo Bifold Wallets ($65)
For this shoot we went down to Fort Point in San Francisco, under the Golden Gate Bridge, to capture the iconic vibe of the bridge, the beautiful bay and a slightly rougher aesthetic. It paid off with some impressive backdrops for the boots and some lovely natural light.
Anyway - enjoy the photos below and thanks as always for following along. Lots more good stuff to come!
Thank you to first time boot-model Mike Farwell for modeling the boots and to Gabi Anderson for help with styling.
