Spring is just around the corner, and it will soon be time to ditch those heavy winter coats. Of course you’ll still need a nice jacket to help you ease into the summer months. La Merde, the cheekily named clothing company based in Portland, Oregon has just dropped their new Spring 2009 line of jackets and hoodies. I am really digging their use of fine details and high-end materials. Each style has a tailored fit that I can only describe as sophisticated street fashion.
