Dress Code

You’ve already heard enough about Vampire Weekend. With the hype machine in full effect, the (apparently) buzzworthy Ivy Leaguers recently became the first band to shoot a Spin magazine cover without ever releasing an album. That, coupled with the fact that Spin is always eager to champion the young and talentless, made us a bit wary. That is, until we realized that their Caribbean by way of Cape Cod pop is actually pretty good. In addition, we fully support their devotion to the Sperry Top-Sider, the unofficial official shoe of CA. It’s time that the Top-Sider gained a substantial following outside of the yacht club, as it’s damn classy and, as one of our editors has proven, can stand up to the Northwest winters as well as anything L.L. Bean will ever make. Look for more on Sperry in the near future, and check out Vampire Weekend here.
