MEET THE SERVICE FAMILY - MATTHEW December 13 2012
Matthew, who's been at Service for a year and a half, moved to Austin from FLA when we was only one year old! When he's not working, Matthew plays soccer (It's been said he has a great soccer ass), and designs men's bags. He's been named the store's songbird; his specialties being Kate Bush and Mariah Carey.
Where else do you shop besides Service? What? I don't have anything left over after all my purchases at Service!
Are you feeling Christmas-y? No, the weather has been too hot. The cold the last few days has helped though.
What are your favorite holiday movies? Home Alone, the Rudolph one, and Misery.
Where's your favorite place in Austin to hang out? Most days you can find me playing cribbage at Centennial Park with my friend Vance Bondurant III. (Matthew is also the store's resident comedian!).
Matthew is wearing:
Penguin, window plaid blazer
Gitman Vintage, long sleeve over-dye dobby
Hartford, green corduroy pants
Florsheim, wingtip boot
Nixon, mellor cream watch

FLORSHEIM, LTD. - FOR THE MAN WHO CARES April 11 2012
Just received our first shipment of Florsheim, Ltd brogues. When Kirk and I attend markets, we never truly know what the fit of a new brand will be, until it arrives at Service. Sometimes we take chances. However, the fact that both our fathers were loyal, lifelong Florsheim customers gave us confidence that Florsheim had the potential to be a great fitting shoe. The first thing I did when the shipment arrived, was try on the new brogues and I have to say that they are among one of the best fitting shoes I have ever worn. The shoes have a nice weight, have great detailing, hug the foot nicely, and the heel adds one inch height without looking Frankenstein-y. Yes! Here are some images to check out.
