Omid Scheybani

The first thing that caught our attention about Omid were those gorgeous shoes. Turns out those shoes used to belong to his father who bought them on a trip to India in the 80′s. Looking at them says a lot about how Omid and his father take care of their shoes. That and the fact […]

Earlier this month, T&P attended the opening party for the Convert Shoe Store on Fourth Street in Berkeley. It was there where we met the owner, Randy Brewer. Decked out in American made apparel, it is clear that he puts more effort into his fashion choices than simply just what looks good. The shirt and […]

The Alameda Antique Vintage Fair (a.k.a The Alameda Flea) is where we spotted this handsomely dressed Biochemist, Jonathan Schaefer. Sorting through the stalls at the Fair scored him a neat find, that black leather vintage mail carrier bag that he is converting into an Ipad case. What a great way to revive something considered obsolete […]

 On a gorgeous Saturday morning, we headed to the Ferry Building Farmers Market to do some trig spotting. I told Gillian, “There’s one!” as I spotted those elbow patches peeking through the rear view of the crowd ahead of us. Then I saw the awesome herringbone wool shawl-neck cardigan that the elbow patches were attached […]

We found Markus Rene, a native of Germany, looking for some cookware at Sur La Table at the Ferry Building’s Farmers Market. Once I got a look at the entire outfit, I knew I had to feature him on Trig & Polished. So we dragged him out of the store for a photo shoot. My […]
