July 13, 2011

As captured last fall, the Gingko trees behind Rose Park blanketed 27th Street with their annual golden fan of leaves for a week in November.

Not likely this year.  On behalf of the city, Adirondack Tree Experts were busy denuding Wednesday morning.

Fit to be tried at Hugh & Crye

July 10, 2011

“A call to action against ill-fitting readymade shirts” is the mandate of Washington D.C. shirt-makers, Pranav Vora and Philip Soriano.

Formerly on the second floor across from Cady’s Alley on M Street where they focused on online sales of men’s dress shirts, Hugh & Crye’s recent move to O Street means their new walk-in location makes finding the perfect size (one of nine based on body type) that much more convenient ... though online ordering is still welcomed.

As Pranav Vora told The Georgetown Dish, ““We’re excited about joining the retail community in Georgetown.”

A new line of “not too skinny, not too wide” silk ties has been added to their 2011 spring-summer collection of shirts.

A sneak peek at morning preparations near the U.S. Capitol on the National Mall. As the Smithsonian Folklife Festival got underway, VIPs  were inflated and secured for the journey down Constitution Avenue for the annual National Independence Day Parade.
