It’s Legacy Week on BTR and Father’s Day on Sunday, so today’s Sew & Tell is all about honoring the fashion legacies of fathers, grandfathers, and older generations. My guest is Christina Belchere, photographer and curator behind the buzzy new Instagram feed Fashion Grandpas, whose photo collection centers around the snappy street style of silver-haired gentlemen. Fashion Grandpas is at once adorable, moving, inspiring, and full of humor, and on today’s show, Christina will talk about how she started collecting these “grandpas,” the dapper style elements that catch her eye, and how she incorporates the grandpas’ looks into her own menswear-inspired wardrobe. Plus, I’m joined later in the show by DJ Dane - together we recap the psychedelic 70’s styles from the most current Mad Men episodes, and do some speculating on what might be ahead for the one & lonely Mr. Don Draper. And as always, I’ve got some great new tunes in the playlist from artists like The Fresh & Onlys, Half-handed Cloud, Dead Stars, and more. So join us now on BTR for a look at some classic menswear styles handed down by dear old dad!
On this Monday's Mix, DJ Wynn talks about failure and how little league sports can help deal it at a young age. We'll hear from Quilt, Neko Case, Anna Calvi, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, and Eleanor Friedberger.
