The Fresh & Onlys
It’s Anti-Social Week here on BTR, and my guest this week is the perfect style solution for when you’re doing a bit of hibernation. Ashley Jude and co-founder Ellie Williams launched Tog + Porter in 2009, offering their customers a unique opportunity to receive personal style service and fresh fashions by mail. Five years later, Tog + Porter have a strong fan base of women from all stages of life, from new moms to mid-career professionals, to young college grads. On today’s show, you’ll hear from Ashley about how she got the idea to launch Tog + Porter following the 2008 financial crisis, what it takes to be part of their stellar team of stylists, the step-by-step details of how Tog + Porter’s service works, some of the brands and labels you might find in your delivery box of goodies, and how their stylists work with clients to build fashion confidence that will last a lifetime. Plus, I have all the details for you on today’s CMJ BTR Showcase Party over at Cake Shop, with a lineup that features a whole afternoon of live indie music from Dinosaur Feathers, Literature, Popstrangers & more, AND a playlist full of great music for you on today’s show including tracks from The Fresh & Onlys, Iska Dhaaf, and Tweedy. We’re having so much fun this week on BTR, we just might forget to be anti-social!

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!
