FOODIE: NYC

 

There’s no better way to escape the fast-paced lifestyle of New York City than to take a break and dine along Manhattan’s waterfront. Whether it’s 5-star dining or a picnic by the piers, enjoying a meal on the Hudson River will definitely provide the perfect [non-getaway] getaway when you need it the most. We compiled a list of a few of our favorite NYC waterside restaurants that we think maybe you will like too-

STRIPES!

 

To the untrained eye, they are all the same but did you know that there are dozens of different types of stripes?

Dating back to the 1800’s, the first stripe is rumored to have been initially fashioned by the French navy in a specific northern-west region called ‘Brittany’. Seamen and sailors began adapting the stripes, noting that the distinctive block pattern of stripes on the French striped shirt made the crew easier to spot in the waves.

Taking the name from it’s origin, the “Breton Stripe” evolved. The Breton Stripe is the most recognizable and celebrated style stripe. Celebrities from Audrey Hepburn and James Dean, to Andy Warhol and Pablo Picasso have famously sported the Breton Stripe Shirt.

Did we mention it is also a Nautica signature ?

Today, we recognize the Breton Stripe for all of the years it has made us look effortlessly chic.
