Unstitched Utilities


Savvy admits that she becomes unstitched (if not unhinged) by a misbegotten outfit, and in these United States such outfits are aplenty. Casual wear in particular is a sinner. Whether it’s a sloppy fit, a crude slogan or a just plain ugly ensemble, she must avert her eyes. Can’t a guy go for comfort and looks? Enter Unstitched Utilities, a new line of men’s footwear—and bless their socks. Run by a crew of Jersey Boys, one of whom, Mark Kane, is originally from Pikesville, it’s now being carried by Ma Petite Shoe in Hampden. And is it ever fab. Made out of practically indestructible (and vegan) Tyvek—the same material in those FedEx packets—the cool, colorful styles almost make Savvy wish her feet were a size 10. (Women’s line available at http://www.unstitchedutilities.com.) Ma Petite Shoe, 832 W. 36th St., Hampden, 410-235-3442.
