You can take a girl out of Corona, but you can never take Corona out of a girl. I'll always have a soft spot for serapes, hair nets, and oversized-too-long shorts. Maybe it's this affinity that's making it easy for me to love Shaun Samson. It's probably no coincidence that his California roots seep into his menswear design, UK-based or not. From last year's needle punch flannel knits to (above) SS12's colorful Mexi stripes, to (below) FW12's heavy cholo vibes, it's all hitting home for me.

And the best thing I found on the internet today.

Congratulations on making it out of the I.E. And may God save all who remain in Riverside.

Those hair nets are the icing on the cake
