There is something batty about 90- to 100-degree weather in November. I’ve been handling the situation with a daily fix of cucumber mint lemonade from Lemonade on Beverly & Doheny, and my favorite bespoke shorts from Franklin+Gower—a totally chic local operation that adds a little West Coast flair to Eastern Seaboard preppie classics.

I designed my shorts out of a super-soft red micro whalebone cotton corduroy with a poinsettia yellow, pink and red stripe down the sides. Franklin+Gower’s shorts and pants are gorgeous and 100% manufactured here in LA. Mr. Foodinista has a pair in seersucker that are going to be perfect for our visit back east to Gulf Stream next week to see my inlaws. You can buy a pair of F+G’s off the rack at Fred Segal, or design your own online by clicking HERE! (Apologies for the below photo—taken in the only full-length mirror in the house, which happens to be about 50 years old and located in Tiny G’s room.)

Update: This just in!!!! Franklin + Gower is extending Foodinista readers a special discount, 15% off, good through the end of the year. Checkout code: foodie

  1. […] wow wow! I just got an email from Paco MacCauley, cofounder of Franklin + Gower, who read my earlier post about my favorite F+G shorts. Turns out Paco is something of a foodie himself and is offering Foodinista readers a 15% discount […]
