Acquisitions | Field Boots, Slips, Cap and Case!


Traditionally, the annual Pier Antiques Show has seemed like a real life stroll through 1stDibs.com - i.e. a fantastic experience for that 1% crew. If you stuck next to the Hermes and Chanel selections, nothing had changed, but we scoured the joint and scored some great 1%-worthy-lookin' stuff for, let's say, 72nd percentile prices. Highlights included these custom-made-for-someone-else (and barely-worn) E. Vogel field boots and a perfect little schoolboy cap. 

Then there were the loads of last minute purchases needed to finish the (honestly almost complete) design project: a flag, a 19th century monkey in a frame, a deco lamp, a sterling and glass bourbon decanter, a horse-jumping photo tryptic, six architectural sketches and an old squash racket. 

On top of all that, I meandered through SoHo and Nolita where I found a great leather iPhone case at the J.Crew men's shop and the warmest, cutest wintery espadrille-esque house slippers from the new Armor Lux shop on Mulberry Street. The latter helped me realize the true greatest failing of corporate America today: only 0.00001% of workers actually get to wear wool house slippers at the office. 

I think I need a tent.

  3. The boots were only $65! We almost fell on the floor. Many thanks to the eagle eye that spotted those puppies.
