There’s been some buzz on the web about the auction of some Steve McQueen-related film items, like his jacket from LeMans and his Husqvarna motocross bike. That’s all well and good, but what’s been left unmentioned is the real gem of the sale: Gene Wilder’s costume from Willie Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. The bidding starts at a generous $40,000, but on the plus side: it’s guaranteed to take you to a world of pure imagination.

Things are already warming up here in Los Angeles - I’ve had to move from wool to cotton flannel up top.  Too-hot-for-sleeves weather is just around the corner.  For me, that’s white tee weather.  It was the same, as you can see, for Steve McQueen.  I used to buy my white tees at Costco - the Kirkland brand are durable and cheap.  They’re also a bit heavy for summer in LA and a bit square for my body shape, so I switched to Alternative Apparel.  More expensive, but soft as a baby’s rear, and with a great cut.  Maybe we’ll do a group buy in the early spring.
Check out some more white tee inspiration at Sartorially Inclined.
