It's very seldom that DC gets rarefied fashion wares, unless you're talking about Ruth Bader-Ginsburg's one-off, provocatively-laced judicial robe. That minx! For exclusive in-town style you can actually pull off, check out Maiden Noir's summer drop, now at Commonwealth. Blessing the Admo streetwear shop with a line so crazy-limited, theirs is one of only five official stockists in the country to include it, the newest run from Japan/Seattle-born Noir is lightweight, playfully classy, and purportedly inspired by the west coast's San Juan Islands, not to be confused with Puerto Rico's San Juan, which exclusively inspires hot grind-dancing to Daddy Yankee. Airy top-layers include the blue canvas Deck Hand Hooded Jacket, lightweight anchor-emblazoned tees, and shirting like the handsome, Japanese-madras Lancaster Plaid shortsleever with a "back-collar locker loop", so next time that bully hangs you after practice, he'll totally be playing into your hands. Breezy short-ing's highlighted by a pair of reinforced-seat selvage chambray joints in gray or the darker charcoal, olive or tan Scout Shorts with a simple waist tie, and the subtly-striped Engineer Field Shorts with "a harringbone waist adjuster", which you'll need to let all the way out should the Fields in question be a "Mrs." For carrying your exclusive summer...picnic materials...they've also just dropped an off-white, "Duck canvas" Leather Trim Totes bag -- though you would totes never catch Ruth with leather trim on her robe -- she's one classy lady.
