Re: Book club

My favorite types of novels, aside from the 19th cent. ones, are the ones where the narrator visits a dreary city for somewhat murky reasons and encounters a succession of interlopers who tell the narrator meandering personal histories or some kind of history of the city/country. Reading the Unconso...

Re: Ramdom fashion thoughts

I have sadly not exorcised the instagram demon sitting on my chest but I can tell you both of those seem to be in. All the teens seem to be wearing distressed jeans and zip up hoodies. For some reason I think classic menswear items are coming back but not as a whole look. So like a tennis sweater, o...

Re: Where to live one of these days

A place called Tokyo, japan. Maybe you’ve heard of it? Actually I’ll probably do Kanazawa instead. Sometimes I miss Hong Kong so much I can smell it. It’s got a certain smell when you come out of the airport in the summer. Perfect. The most city-like city I’ve even been. But you can also go off to t...

Re: Ramdom fashion thoughts

Is there a better short than baggies (5")? You can't really carry anything in the font pockets without looking ridiculous but otherwise they are hard to beat. This also serves as your reminder that if you want to get a good color and not some ugly graphic you should buy before May because all t...

Re: Camellia Sinensis

I pretty much only drink Japanese tea because that's what I work with every day. Recently http://i.imgur.com/dgeGJiVl.jpg Single Cultivar Asahi Matcha from Uji http://i.imgur.com/GRR0sR9l.jpg Chiran Sencha from Kagoshima. Teas from this area undergo a very limited firing so they have more of a "...

Re: The Furniture Game

furniture is a "fake concept" as we used to say.

Secondhand/vintage is really the only option.

Re: ramdom thought thread revival

What's that article, I think in the New Yorker, about the goings on of upper east side teens in the 1990s? Featuring some really great dialog and descriptions of their outfits? [edit] found it: https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/1995/02/20/the-shit-kickers-of-madison-avenue It's a good article to re...

Re: Ramdom fashion thoughts

What happened to sprezzatura?

Perhaps we could use more of that Italian charm in our lives now more than ever.

I guess it's hard to show off the casual scarf over zoom at the fake email job.

Re: THEORY of fitpics

The colors in my most recent pic were a conceptual tie in to the text in the photo (Green Miles). Otherwise I would say it's a bit twee. Who will be the first to mint a Fitpic NFT? Tagging the brand on social media is the worst imo. Pure validation energy, unless you are getting paid to do so. I thi...
