I keep coming to the tenuous "conclusion" that I want to effect the look of what I'm calling "the city hiker". No pointy-toed shoes for me, no. At least not for daytime, which is when I'm mostly out and about. This fall, I want boots that could accommodate me climbing over rocks, even though I know I won't encounter any rocks along Broadway or in the East Village, where my walks tend to lead me. I want easy-to-move-in clothing in sturdy fabrics like corduroy. Cargo pants whose pockets I'd like to think I'd use. Anything but the same ol' black.
