E.O.F. NEW PICKS: Rhapsody in Blue!

We recently acquired some really sick classic 90s mens shirts that are perfect for a classic cool vibe this Spring / Summer! And weirdly enough, they all fell into this awesome blue palette which is super timeless and versatile.

We always gravitate towards that preppy ivy style but with a bit of a twist, and these shirts do that trick to give you that dapper playboy who still loves a little rock n roll!

Grab more details on these shirts, and more of our latest time traveled pieces! Also if you are in the Hamilton, ON area, we will be bringing some new pieces to our booth at the Hamilton Antique Mall {3RD FLOOR- 33E} this coming week, so definitely check it out.

Diary of a Small Town: Vintage Dreams + Nightmares {Vintage Style Moody Mood Board Inspiration}

 

We have quite the tale in store for you today at The Eye of Faith. . .

This one is taken from the darkest depths of our imagination and tells the hidden tales of a quaint small town, not too far from where you sit. It could be any small town, but this one is brimming with mystery, and dare I say, perhaps even evil!

Things started out innocent enough, but there are certain places on this Earth where malevolent energies cluster and stay for many thousands of years. It is in the quiet of the country, far from the claws and chains of the city, that have provided families and individuals with the peace, calm, and safety they desire.

 

But often times, it is the unsettling chill of calm that can provide the most fright….

Even in a town where everyone knows your name, you never know the myths and legends being made behind closed doors or the grim memories lost deep beyond the trees at night. This one is all about wayward youth, rebellion, seduction, secrets, mysteries, beauty, and strength.

Please enjoy our Small Town Dreams & Nightmares . . .

With shows like CW’s “RIVERDALE” capturing our imagination, and a new season of “TWIN PEAKS” in our midst- it goes to show that while the big city is full of brights lights and noise, sometimes its our thirst for nostalgia, the whispers in the trees, and our love of mystery that truly excites our bones!

To our vintage dreams, and  to our vintage nightmares – this one is to a town not yet forgotten. Keep the mystery close, for you never know what clues you may stumble upon. For all you know, they might still need your help.

EXCITING THINGS ABOUND FOR THE E.O.F. {SO STAY TUNED}

{STYLE-WISE} The Secret Society Style of Tom Buchanan

secret society style- joel edgerton as tom buchanan

Indeed there are many sinfully stylish idols to worship throughout “The Great Gatsby”; like masculine and cool Jordan, soft and feminine Daisy, even the bookish narrator Nick. And then of course there’s the poster boy himself, Jay Gatsby ,who shall always remain in the fore realm of our memory as a hero to determination and an eternal icon of excess.

But, one that is often overlooked has to be Tom Buchanan; the brutish and masculine husband of Daisy.

This powerful Yale alum is as much the style savant as any of the other devilish dandies that parade themselves throughout the story. This time around, however, Tom Buchanan is as much the idol of style as anyone of his other stylish co-sars.

For instance, actor Joel Edgerton, who plays Tom Buchanan mentions “There’s a Skull and Bones insignia sewn into it that may not even be visible,” to Empire Magazine, adding a unique twist to the characterization of the East Egg Prepster.

After all, Tom Buchanan is of the upper crust of society, and a recent graduate of Yale University, so why wouldn’t he be a member of the elusive Skull and Bones from which Presidents, Astronauts, and Great Leaders in society are born? Allegedly.

I thought it interesting that several years ago a human skull that had been carved into a ballot box was put up to bid at Christie’s (and later pulled under controversial circumstances), and more and more, this particular secret society  (No. 322)  is coming to the forefront of our own culture; it’s the perfect play on history and style that make for a refreshing take on such a popular story. The bold reinvention is most definitely in their favour.
