Hejfina, skinny striped ties, and John Edwards

I was researching a fashion-related story and came across the Chicago boutique, Hejfina. The store carries men's and women's clothing, shoes and accessories, custom furniture as well as art and architecture books. The space also serves as an interactive design lab, hosting installations by up-and-coming Chicago artists and various speakers on current topics in art and architecture. I can't wait to check this store out in person. They carry the L.A. brand "Band of Outsiders" which I really like, especially their men's ties, which somehow brought me to the conclusion that John Edwards is stealing (or borrowing?) RFK's style! Edwards may not measure up to RFK in the political realm (yet) but he sure is nailing the Bobby Kennedy look, and I think it's one of the best tacticts I've heard of in a long time. Edwards' stylistic choices are dead on, from his Kennedy coiff to his striped skinny(ish) neck ties, not to mention his small children. Below is the Band of Outsiders Aqua and Navy herringbone stripe silk tie that you can get at Hejfina for $115. Then you too can look like Bobby K. or John Edwards, or just a really stylish dude.
