What's he laughing at? It may not be the cool outfit he has on from Brooklyn Cloth, but let me tell you, when he opened the mail and saw these items inside, he was all smiles.
I like that these pieces are made well, of course that always comes first, but I also really like that they say 'Brooklyn' on them. Makes them perfect for a trip to NYC, don't cha' think? Especially this time of year, when there's still a little nip in the air and lightweight, long sleeves are definitely in order, even if you opt to wear shorts. I've been wanting to stay over and visit the DUMBO area for awhile now. I think it would be especially great to walk over the Brooklyn Bridge into Manhattan! This Gothic Print Brooklyn tee would look great against that backdrop, right?!?!
These white knit shorts say Brooklyn on the side too, in big bold letters, and they are a little longer so they're going to keep you warm, while still letting your legs (which have been cooped up all winter) get some air. At the time when I took these pics, I was still working on getting my ISO and aperture right on my camera (light colors were fading into each other and all but erasing my images). You can see it definitely needed an adjustment, but as an update...I think I'm getting the hang of it. I'll pull my Easter pics in a bit, and see if they came out as good as I think they did. If I'm right, I'm finally starting to get the hang of my manual speed (finally). Admittedly, I don't work on it as much as I should, time is scarce and precious at the moment.
Here's a better view of the letters on the shorts. My son likes this length, just to the knee. Gives him room to move around on the basketball court, while not riding up or feeling too short to be comfortable while he's on the move.
The sleeves have some pretty great details,
and the back does too. Yes, that is Lady Liberty herself, as well as the brand name "Brooklyn" on the top. Brooklyn Cloth offers quite a few items with the Statue of Liberty on them, in fact, and again these would be awesome items to wear to New York City. They're also great for wearing anywhere, any time, to show support for The Big Apple.
These longer length shorts (to the knee like the white and red ones mentioned above) are made from French Terry and have a drawstring waist. They say NEW YORK across the front of them, and they have side pockets. My son said they are very warm and he likes how they fit (loose, but not falling down).
