This is a little tale about how one writer (a) moved to a little sliver of paradise in the midst of a very, very large ocean, (b) learned quickly to appreciate all things “island style”—the relaxed fashion in which everything is served/worn/executed, (c) after a decade of island living began to long for some sense of reform in the elegance of everyday occurrences, only to be besodden with example upon example of how a (warning: sweeping statement follows) simple-minded culture refuses to evolve, stylistically, and (d) ultimately found a glimmer of hope in a tiny, backstreet menswear shop in a Windward beach town. Recline your seat and enjoy the read/rant.
