From the brilliant minds at ThingX.com, just in time for Kentucky Derby season: how to make a mint julep.
1. Muddle 4 mint sprigs in a Collins glass. Spearmint leaves are preferred, though in a pinch, you also can easily substitute menthol cigarettes.
“Everlane is a clothing company that cuts costs to improve value, just as so many great modern fashion businesses have…Its promise to its customers is that, in cutting out the management and marketing tiers needed to operate at physical retail, it gives them clothes that ultimately work and look better for them at a better price. It feels like the future—and not un-coincidentally, like the best of the past too. In the U.K., until the 1950s, the average working man in Britain got all his shirts and clothes made-to-measure at his high-street tailor. That wasn’t because he was rich; it was because that was the best, most convenient way to make his budget and his outfit work for him.”

Kamakura Opens Its Online Shop
Kamakura just opened their online shop. Of the slim-fitting oxford cloth button down shirts I reviewed in our series, I thought Kamakura’s was the best one. Timothy Kojima – a sales associate at the company’s store in NYC (currently their only location in the US) – tells me that the shirt they sent me was one of their New York Slim Fits. You can get a sense of the cut by checking out the measurements in my reviews.
Kamakura seems to have two general models: a Tokyo model and a New York model, both of which come in a classic and slim fit. The Tokyo model, as I understand it, fits slimmer in the torso and shorter in the arms. That means a Tokyo Classic Fit will be slimmer in the body than a New York Classic Fit. However, Timothy tells me that the Tokyo Classic Fit will still be fuller than a New York Slim Fit.

I just looked up “steezy” in the dictionary and there was just a link to this post on my personal Tumblr?
Bananas? Pineapples? Or just a tight herringbone weave?
Sometimes you just get really lucky and the light in a photo is made perfect by what’s around you. Diffused through the trees, I kept moving my friend over inch by inch until it fell on him just right. I usually do very little editing on my stuff and with this I did none, the tones of blue and green are perfect here. -Liam Goslett
No big deal. Just me and Nardwuar the Human Serviette.
It’s rare that one meets a genuine style icon. Like Nardwuar.
