Not all of you may know this – When she’s not designing clothes for Launderette, our Leslie is designing beautiful interiors and living spaces for others. And congratulations are in order, as she’s launched her new website: Leslie Paugh Interior Design.
It’s quite an attractive place. Take a peak at her work & blog in the link above, and you’ll start wanting to remodel your whole trip.
A jacket is like a man’s purse. You can take it off and on easily and it will hold everything you need to without filling your pant pockets. Now that winter’s in full swing, a good coat is indispensable. Finding one that doesn’t seem like it should be summiting peaks however; is another task all together.
We thought we’d round up some cold weather winners to help you frame the tie around your neck.
Apolis waxed cotton, (detachable) lined – USMC Jacket
Owner/Operator Clean, classic nylon waterproof shell – 111b Parka
J.Crew Durable, with rear-loading “game pockets” – Trapper Jacket

There’s a lot to be learned from this one. First and foremost, your pants are probably too long. You need to find opportunities to sing with your friends. Maybe this is the season you wear an ascot.
This songs always been so good, we thought you should see the video directed by Martin Baker. Steal some backwards dance moves. Two-tone rudies, lift ya feet!

We are thankful for all your support this year – Your good taste, your purchases, and readership.
Our sincere gratitude from all (3) of us here at Launderette, Happy Thanksgiving!
Best Thanksgiving movies is a tough category. Garfield had a halfway decent special (spoiler: lasagna), but actual movies… Here are our favorites.
Fantastic Mr. Fox – This is autumnal perfection. The whole film is like a brisk early-evening sunset with colored leaves underfoot and good jokes. Highlight: Willem Dafoe playing a sinister Westside Story rat.
The New World – English ships arrive in Jamestown, native tribes investigate, transcontinental romance blossoms. It doesn’t get more Thanksgiving than this. Highlight: Incredibly beautiful “Injun” dresses.
Dad Movies – In asking a friend about this, he mentioned he and his dad always watched The Great Escape on Thanksgiving. This is perfect. Any movie that gets your dad pumped. Highlight: All the spice drops you can handle.
Tough luck at the Halloween Superstore? We’re not surprised. Try these do-it-yourself costumes for your kids and your munchkin will be the hit of the parade.
You’d be Lion if you don’t think this is adorable.

Gnomes, they’d look cute in your garden
Pretty, pretty peacock
Give this kid some spinach, pureed
