New site. New Office. New home. After almost 30 years in Sag Harbor, Equipt, Daffodil and I moved to New Haven, Connecticut. It was high time for a change – a refresh – and 2018 was the pivot point. I’d been giving a lot of thought to the future and how I wanted to help it unfold, and New Haven answered the geographic question perfectly: university town; close to Manhattan; close to friends in the Hamptons; close to good airports. Thanks to technology and our new off-site warehouse, the move also allowed me to expand my vision for the next phase of my design career.
You’ll notice a gray button on our home page, whoop! folio. It’s the cornerstone of this expanded career vision. In a nutshell, it’ll be a platform for my other design interests beyond Equipt. Home base. You’ll see new street shoes there (coming in spring 2019), dinnerware (an old love) and a chronicle of the renovation projects I am working on (new love). When you have a moment, click on the button and learn more.
Equipt for play has matured and stands on her own now. Her mission is still valid: offering unique golf products that can’t be found elsewhere – like these beautiful navy and white wingtips coming in January. They’ll be sporting our new, molded outsoles made of clear TPR. I’ll be designing a few new styles of golf shoes annually like these, offering them in limited editions, and then spending the rest of my time involved in other design projects. Our new warehouse in Lawrence, MA, frees me up to do just that. I can be and work wherever I like…London, south of France, Manhattan. (God, I love technology!)
