In this current era of health care reform finger-pointing, recession survival tactics, and negativity regarding the reputedly selfish American agenda, it's nice to see some good wholesome efforts coming from creative types who are pushing the wagon in the budding movimento Americano verde. John Patrick is one of these golden chaps, and I am happy to see that his Spring 2010 Collection reflects such stellar commitment, though in a wash-and-wear manner. These are solid pieces with the longevity of your Mum's favorite cardigan or your boyfriend's rumpled cotton pajamas, cleverly cinched and belted at the waist. It does not hurt that Shalom endorsed this latest collection, but like all good friends weathering the storm together, it's not who you know per se but who you remember and support when the going gets rough. This, my friends, is the true American spirit.
