Fashion and the Red Sox may have a reputation for going together a lot like oil and water, but I received an e-mail this morning that I think may appease the lot of us. Former Bostonian Eric Holtzman wrote in from his new home on the West Coast, where he told us he's steadily repping Red Sox nation with a sense of style and pride.
Holtzman was kind enough to let us reprint the letter (and photo) below:
Dear Ms. Raczka,
My name is Eric Holtzman and I am a Boston transplant who has lived in LA for the last 15 years. In my job as the Director of a boutique on Rodeo Drive, it is impossible for me to show my support for my beloved Red Sox, as my well-worn cap would not be business appropriate.
As such, I asked a friend who created a great business called Gallant & Beau (www.gallantbeau.com) if he would create and offer "The Bostonian". I'm wearing my red socks to work every day through the World Series to show my hometown allegiance. (Don't worry, I have several pairs:).
My wife suggested I bring this to your attention, so we can get the word out to all of Boston's stylish businessmen and fans elsewhere, so that we can all support.
Thanks for reading!
Any other fashion brands out there making an effort to create stylish-- but subtle-- tributes to the Sox for the World Series? Send them my way: Rachel.Raczka(AT)Globe.com.
