Menswear, accessories & cocktails for those who care enough to look. Welcome to RYE & RIVET.
As Charles Eames once so famously said, “The details are not the details.” As Yogi Berra-esque as that may sound, the man knew what he was talking about. The details are not the details. The details are everything. They should never be noticed as the individual pieces but rather can only be properly recognized as the entire item, the entire Design. For instance: Alden’s Summer Oxford. Take one look at them and then close your eyes– can you separate the image in your mind into each small, painstakingly crafted part that it is comprised of? No. The shoe is the shoe– only upon closer inspection do you notice the three subtle shades of tobacco that make up the colorway, the striking splash of the orange-hued interior, the custom heel. Now look again– the details are not the details. The details make the design. Get them here.
