Two weeks ago, it was a wedding in 95° heat with 95% humidity. Last weekend, a special night out at local restaurant we've been wanting to try. Next week, an out-of-town business-y trip to the desert. All of which have sweatingly, swelteringly reminded me: I have no idea how to dress up when it's hot outside.
Even in the days of impact drivers, cordless, battery-powered nailers , and more kinds of screw heads that one can name, sometimes a hammer is still the best tool for the job. And while the process seems simple, anyone who's ever used will tell you: there's a lot to go wrong.
We are not kidding - these are paintings! Incredibly detailed acrylic paintings on cotton cloth. Damn good art for all of you motorbike lovers!
A few weeks ago, we set about trying to come up with the perfect style combo for the urban bike commuter. And while our option was professional and a bit dressy, there are still those with jobs that demand wearing a suit, or those special occasions when dedicated cyclists end up on their bikes in a suit.
I know we all know this, but it's never not interesting to me to recall that our modern notion of "brand" - small companies and giant corporations, logos and awareness and identities - were born from those literal brands: distinct identities burned with a hot iron stamp.
