Despite the ever-present sun and warm temperatures, winter is almost here in San Diego and the fashionable folks of Hillcrest are finally ready for some layers! Blending retro and vintage pieces with current styles has become a popular trend for those that wish to create cohesive and unique ensembles. Tartan print, leather, and distressed denim have emerged as popular choices to wear for men this season, with creepers and bowlers being some of the “it” accessories. Modern jumpers with vintage jackets or retro overalls with chic, chunky sweaters are looks that have been popping up all over town for the ladies! And if throwbacks aren’t your thing, the little black dress is another hot item this winter, because in San Diego, a little skin is always in!

Meet Our Team: Joe C.

Buffalo Exchange

So I’m sitting in a job interview–the gig is a mail room manager for a large tech company–and the gent behind the desk looks up from my application, chuckling. “Art degree, huh? How’s that workin’ out for ya?” He eventually offered me the job anyway, but I was immediately looking for a reason not to take it. I simply wanted something… happier.

Minimalist Menswear (for the ladies)

By Buffalo Exchange Philly

Buffalo Exchange

With the popularity of tailored boyish elements in feminine apparel on the rise, this fall we’re seeing menswear for ladies take on a new spin. A neutral color palette, paired with high quality pieces and a pop of color creates a fresh, yet timeless silhouette. Men’s overcoats are paired over a denim peter-pan collar blouse or simple bustier. Durable statement pieces such as leather handbags, wood soled shoes, or hand forged sterling silver jewelry are transforming the trend to offer a little edge. Hold onto your boyfriend blazer—it’s still a classic in your fall wardrobe. Throw on a menswear button-up, overalls, and leather boots and you’ve got yourself a modern day look that would be Annie Hall approved!

With colder temperatures arriving in DC, we have seen a lot of layering. Newer trends for this year are blanket scarves over jackets, athletic hoodies under denim, and statement jackets and coats. Flannels and plaids continue to be seen as the 90s still influence fashion. As our presence in the DC-area continues to grow we are continuing to see really unique and amazing vintage and retro pieces. A few shots feature head-to-toe Ralph Lauren items that were sold to us by a woman who worked in his show room for over 30 years. She was excited to have found a place that appreciated her history with one of the staples of American fashion.
