Redefining Your Winter Wardrobe

This winter season here in Napa, we are yet again hoping for a season of true cold weather conditions and an abundance of rain. And while we’ll most likely at least get cooler temperatures, that’s a good enough reason for us to wear our winter coats and scarves. However, whether you’re here on the west or east coast, we all have become accustomed to reaching for the same neutral winter color palette and often fail to incorporate other colors that are often available but we tend to overlook.air jordan xvi

Behind The Threads: Road Twenty-Two

We have long been a fan of locally made products, especially clothing. So when we discovered this gem of a company based in San Francisco, that creates perfect fitting tees while carrying out their mission in which the brand was built upon: employing women who have faced challenges in their life, including previously incarcerated women in the Bay Area, we knew had to place an order right away. We especially love Road Twenty Two’s enormous philanthropic effort in creating jobs for women within the brand and love all the super soft fabrics they use that make you feel the need to buy the same tee in five colors (not that that is necessarily a bad thing…).

We spoke more about the line with Road Twenty Two CEO, Fif Ghobadian for this month’s, ‘Behind The Threads’.

1.       What has been your biggest accomplishment with Road Twenty Two?
air jordan retro 13
The biggest accomplishment is when we see customer and store feedback that is equally as passionate about our mission and product as we are. When we see people on the streets wearing our Tees and when we hear people talking about our brand with pure love. Also, it is beyond gratifying to employ amazing women who deserve every opportunity but are unfortunately are black balled by the system.

2.       Besides the fantastic foundation in which the line is built upon, how do your shirts set themselves apart from other t-shirt brands?

Our shirts are created from luxurious US fabrics which have been washed in enzymes for ultra softness.  Road 22 shirts fit to perfection the skim the body, cling in all the right places and fit most body types.  The shirts are casual yet polished, fashionable not trendy and can be take you from day into evening.

3.       How do you see the line evolving within five years?

Our vision is to expand our line beyond Tees for women to all knits, button down shirts and cashmeres. We will continue to expand our men’s line next and then eventually we will have a kid’s line. We are going to be a national brand known for our high quality products and for creating a social movement of giving people a second chance and putting them back into society.

4.       We love that Road Twenty Two is produced entirely in San Francisco. What do you find most special about this aspect within the brand
nike air max 90 all white
We are supporting a local community and its wonderful to bring back garment manufacturing to San Francisco.We can just walk over to see our  shirts being produced and we have our pulse on every step of the production.

5.       Do you see the line spanning beyond knit tees and basics in the future?

Yes, we are definitely going to be much more than Knit tees. We will have wovens and a full Men’s and Kid’s line.

NYC Market Essentials

Ah yes, New York Fashion Week is just wrapping up in NYC. Which means us buyers get to go in next week and have all the fun pick out all the fresh new styles to bring in our stores for Spring.

I love attending market (fashion market: where we go twice a year to pick out the latest and greatest styles for PlumpJackSport at The Carneros Inn) in September vs. February in New York, as it allows for a broader variety of what I can wear. Since we’re on our feet all day long and walking around the city morning and night, I’ve learned how crucial it is to embrace the happy hybrid of fashion and function.

Here’s a glimpse into my go-to market essentials.nyc

1. a versatile carry on/market bag: this bag is nylon, so it’s easy to clean if I spill my wine the kid in front of you spills their juice on the plane due to turbulence, yet roomy and durable, for when we’re lugging around five pounds of orders and looksbooks/linesheets each day. (Tory Burch)

2. comfy, but cute sneakers: sneakers have a come a long way in breaking into the modern fashion world, so it’s almost impossible to not find a cute pair. I especially love these because I’m obsessed with leopard print it’s a great neutral to pair with almost any outfit on my trip. (Sam Edelman)

3. classic shades: an absolute staple – and it’s such a beautiful, sunny time in NYC right now. Protect those eyes in style! (A.J. Morgan)

4. a dark, casual to dressy jean: i live in relaxed/boyfriend-ish style denim, because it’s so easy to take from day to night and you could style with essentially, any shoe. These are comfortable enough to wear all day and flawless to wear at night with a dressy top. mapbild (Paige Denim)

5. a big, cozy neutral scarf: this is part of ‘Flying 101’. Steer clear of those shady airplane blankets and opt for a spacious, soft scarf to wrap up when it gets chilly during your flight or throw on when it gets chilly at night if you’re out to dinner. (Calypso)

Behind The Threads: Fidelity Denim

Everyone loves a good pair of jeans. And finding that perfect fit and wash is a journey that us ladies will always be on. So when we stumbled upon, Fidelity Denim, a made in California denim line offering an emphasis on the science behind the best fitting jean, we had to bring it in to PlumpJackSport. Lead designer at Fidelity Denim and previous Creative Director at Level 99 jeans, Rokhsan Enanoria spoke with us about the foundation of Fidelity Denim and up and coming styles to have on your fall radar.

1. Fidelity Denim’s motto is, “Devoted to Denim” – what’s the story behind this? Fidelity’s focus is denim and will always be denim.  It what we are passionate about.  We are constantly asked by customers for other types of clothing/secondary’s to be added to collection.  However, we are devoted to the idea to making beautiful, rich, pure, fitting denim.

2. We all have that one pair of go-to denim that is our tried and true fit, style and wash. What has been become the most versatile style from Fidelity, that the average girl can wear year round? Definitely the Charlie.  This is a fit that is a true skinny.  Just between your ultra skinny and the skinny straight.

3. What sets Fidelity Denim apart from other denim lines out there? Fidelity pledges unwavering devotion to the finest fabrications. Fidelity promises to proudly manufacture every garment in the U.S.A, in a meticulous manner, for the ultimate fit. Fidelity honor’s blue jean history and strives to generate happiness and confidence in all those who create, sell or wear Fidelity.

4. Most people have a skinny, boot cut, cropped and shorts in their current wardrobe. What is a key denim style that we should be on the look for? Flares are an important piece in any wardrobe with the 70’s trend right now. Also, for that forward customer, anti fits and re worked boyfriends are also relevant.

5. What is the best way to care for your denim and get the most life out your favorite pair? Denim is best when it’s  never washed.  The characters of the fabric and it’s weave show through best after aging.

5 Picks for Fall


nike free 2
Fall is upon us and PlumpJackSport has the must have items for this season. These are our picks for the styles that will take you from the office to the bar and everywhere in between.

Every wardrobe’s must-have this season is an army-style cargo jacket or vest. Our favorite picks are the Jack Argi Jacket and the Sanctuary Globe Trekker Vest. Either one of these essentials are sure to complete any autumn outfit.

Layer this over a cream colored cashmere Crewneck Sweater from Velvet to feel luxuriously warm or a plain tee for those warmer fall days.

This seems to be the season of the faux leather pant. When the plain black legging just isn’t enough, dress up any outfit with a pair of Alyssa Leggings from BB Dakota, or, my personal favorite, the Faux Leather Leggings from Spanks.

This whole look can be completed with a pair of Frye booties. We love the Reina bootie in black for a dressier look or the Anna Shortie in cognac for a more classic, everyday look.

Days of Denim

Denim is one of my favorite categories. There’s a wash for every occasion, a fit for everybody type and style for every age.
womens new balance shoes
At the moment, I’m especially loving a good boyfriend jean in a medium worn in wash, like the Fidelity Denim Axl jean and pair with a wedge or heel to balance the relaxed leg. For a cleaner style, I’ve always been a fan of a good J Brand dark rinse skinny and often wear with a flat or sandal. The Indio wash from Hudson offers a lighter wash and cropped fit, so you can pair with a white tee in the fall months and still have a summer vibe.

Right now, we have the whole spectrum of new washes and fits to take you into fall and winter and we cannot wait to pair with cozy sweaters that will be arriving in the coming weeks!

 

Fall Pieces We’re Currently Falling For

Even though temps have been hotter than hot here in Napa, they’re not stopping the fall arrivals from coming our way. Which makes us wish we could sport the latest hats and sweaters sooner than later. In the meantime, we can lust over some pieces that we can’t wait to wear full throttle in the next few months.

SUNNIES: if you typically reach for a black or tortoise frame, this olive color is a good way to switch it up + the fit is fantastic.

BLACK PANT: an updated fall staple + the softest fabric ever.

TEE: the color of the year + goes with your fall color palette.

NECKLACE: the necklace you’ll wear all year long + the most dainty piece to pair with everything.

FLOPPY HAT: two words: instant chic + just the right amount of flop.

SWEATER: asymmetrical hem + neutral color, makes for your not so average fall sweater.

Everyone loves a good tote bag. I mean, it’s a must in this day and age. At the same time, it’s hard to not have 52 different ones. Until we came across Tory Burch’s latest bag – The Perry Tote.
