Gingham's one of those fabrics that, at first glance, feels a little precious. Visions of picnic blankets, sweet country curtains and '50s sundresses come to mind. But when paired with the right accessories -- leather jacket, sneakers -- a pair of vintage-style gingham cigarette pants start to feel a little tough in the best way. Perfect for strolling around Society Hill and Old City on a beautiful spring day a couple of weeks ago. We popped into a few stores and grabbed a beer at 2nd Story Brewing, before heading home to do responsible things. By now the flowers are blooming and spring feels like it's in full swing - and frankly I'm ready for it.
