A Brief Blog Profile: A Continuous Lean
by Thomas Hynes
A Continuous Lean is a fashion blog. But they describe themselves as a 'discovery agent' for all the people out there in the blogosphere who appreciate 'quality, style and provenance.' After briefly looking around, I certainly don't disagree with that statement. And it goes way beyond clothes. The criteria seems to be anything that's beautiful, elegant or stylish. Be it a photograph of old airplanes or refurbished boots.
The blog is run by Michael Williams. He's originally from Cleveland, but now resides in New York. But, A Continuous Lean by no means constrains itself to one city, one timezone or even one continent. The posts dart between California, New York and Florence, as well as many other destinations. The site offers a host of options for shopping in these various locales. There's this hat maker in New York, which while very fashionable, could probably also have existed just as it is 100 years ago. And there's this smart looking shop or "gallery" in Los Angeles. No matter where you are, this blog has you covered.
And to that end, probably my favorite part of A Continuous Lean is the Maps & Intel section. This goes way beyond shopping destinations. These maps show readers where to eat and drink. There's even points for good people watching. It's as if clothes and looking good is only part of the equation to style. Living well has its place, too.
