Seattle and NYC-based, Universal Standard, is transforming the apparel industry for more than 67% of women in America.  The size-inclusive brand offers fashion-forward, high-quality clothing in sizes 10-28. Polina Veksler and Alexandra Waldman started Universal Standard because size had become the dividing line determining who had the privilege and freedom to dress with quality and style.

That had to change, so they changed it.

Most men make the mistake of associating “custom menswear” with slick, three-piece suits that are only intended to be worn in the boardrooms of Manhattan’s most prestigious law firms or any other organization aspiring to be such. It might bring up images of top-dollar execs who drink expensive scotch in their offices who can afford to splurge on clothing made from scratch.

Fall is the season of chic, requiring an arsenal of new fashion and beauty products and Box of Style’s fall box is filled with major finds to look glamorous from head to toe. Box of Style, The Zoe Report’s seasonal, sartorial subscription service that offers members an expertly curated selection of fashion, beauty and lifestyle pieces, revealed the contents of its fall 2016 box this week! 

We had the chance to chat with Leslie Ota, the founder of boutique sock company, Seattle-based Posie Turner. Leslie founded Posie Turner in the spring of 2015 with the motto, “modern socks with inspiring mantras.” Each pair of socks has a unique and vibrant design. Right now, they launch new styles in the spring and the fall. We want all of them. It’s hard to pick a favorite, but we love the “Be Twelve“, sporting blue and green Seattle Seahawks pride and “Expect Miracles“.
