The Corsillo boys of The Hill-Side never cease to produce beautifully unique lookbooks – which is fitting considering their beautifully unique products. This time around they sent disposable cameras to their various stockists around the world and asked them to capture the product in their own way. The result? A perfect medley of images, modes and backgrounds illustrating how much The Hill-Side has grown in the past few years.

I love the Horween leather on these Danner Tramline Boots, it’s the perfect brown. That, combined with their classic hiking laces and a practical yet stylish Vibram sole, makes them a quality pair of boots that look like they can take you to the moon and back.

This shot was captured by Joe Gannon at the Peru Fair in Vermont last weekend, which he attended with James Fox, John Newburn, and my fiance and I. The old man pictured was the highlight of the day. He was grooving to a bluegrass band and his moves captivated the entire crowd. Equally as amazing as his dancing was his shirt – a beaten-in chambray that looked like he had been wearing it his entire life. It just goes to show that wearing what works for you and being comfortable with yourself is the only way to go, whether you’re 20 or 80.

If a Barbour married your dad’s college varsity jacket, this is the baby they would make. The Vanson for Eapulet Varsity offers a nice twist on a classic, with a snap tab collar, waxed canvas body, leather sleeves and tartan lining. PS It’s on sale for 50% off!

This shot was taken by Ryan Plett and is from the most recent Penfield lookbook, which I styled. We shot it at Camp Wandawega in Wisconsin. The camp is incredible, much like its owners, and I highly recommend staying there. In the summer though. March was quite chilly. But, our model Claire was a trooper and looked lovely despite having frozen fingers and toes.
