Standard issue footwear is either drab green monochrome Chucks created by Converse exclusively for the Ace or classic black Doc Marten's embossed with a skeleton key [pictured above]. The jeans are by Levi's and Newark-based L. Gambert created custom fitted shirts, handcrafted from patterning to production and overseen by second and third generation family artisans. L. Gambert also created the housekeeping uniform, a utilitarian shirt-dress. The vintage Glen-check Coto tie and blackened silver Surface 2 Air tie chain complete the look.
We actually noticed the receptionist's snazzy tie chain when checking in back in May. Still, we're all about the footwear choices here. Doc Martens and Chuck Taylors are notoriously comfortable, functional and yet stylish in that downtown way. Hmm we wonder if they're hiring toilet cleaners; that room attendant above looks like our kind of sassy.
