READY FOR THE WEEKEND:
I can’t tell if this is practical or just a novelty item. On first appraisal, this seems rather smart. But is there someplace to stash the portable iron? Specs and a how-it-works video can be found over here.
THE WELL DRESSED GIZMO: I would be lying if I said I wasn’t interested in one of these.
MANNERS: We really need to cultivate more of those these days. It’s not just an interwebs thing. The Art Of Manliness posted a remarkably made-for-these-times collection of rules for conversation. Here’s the rub: they’re from 1875. And we need them now more than ever. For the record, I’m guilty of breaking #3 but I’m getting way better at #10.
DAPPERED IN ACTION:
Dappered reader Kyle T was inspired by this Dappered post to rejuvenate this pair of leather derby shoes. This is pretty impressive and a great way to work style on a budge. You can see enlarged photos here and here.
GASPING FOR BREATH: This right here…there are few words. But all of them are from the world of snark. Also, the amount of denial going on here is staggering.
ASK A WOMAN? I so very much want to know how Dappered’s own Beth would have dealt with this one.
STONE COLD HIPSTERS:
Paris designer Leo Caillard wondered what some of history’s more famous sculpted figures might look like in a modern context. Turns out, they look pretty Wiiliamsburg-esue. Thanks to reader David L who spotted this just about the same time I did. You really need to see the whole gallery.
BLOOMBERG’S FOLLIES: Remember that comment about the nanny state a couple weeks ago? New York City’s Mayor is doing all he can, and honestly, it’s pretty sad when it’s not funny. As is the case with his latest move which seems to come straight outta Portlandia. (And for the record, composting is good. Forced composting? Not so much.)
EVEN THE MAN OF STEEL HAS CRAPTACULAR DAYS:
SPEAKING OF SUPERMEN: What have you accomplished today? Goals anyone?
LESS IS MORE: Next time you grab for that third draft at the bar or that extra serving of pasta on a non-work out day, try and remember to keep this in the back of your mind. I joke, but for those of us with a family history of dementia, it’s not that funny.
Need something else to read?
- Speaking of stone classics? Any new additions to list list?
- Because, please. If there’s one thing you really should not mess up, it’s this. OK, there are lots of them, but really, if you’re making people’s eyes all sorts of crazy, that’s not good.
