the tweed run

this put a big smile on my face this morning

“What ho! 400 of London’s most sartorial Gents and most finely attired Ladies gathered in Chelsea on Saturday for the Tweed Run 2010 … this weekend brought bright sun and blue skies for a truly unique group ride around London.”

all i need

i know i usually feature fancy looking wood & glass masterpieces, but i’d really just like a pretty little house, possibly with a garden (or a courtyard, or a verandah – or all three) that’s close to town so that i can walk everywhere.

a clock without hands

i wish i had more information about marcine miller (an american living in paris, i think?) – but i do know that her blog is beautiful and her photos are gorgeous (and BIG! i love when people have tons of large photos to scroll through). do yourself a favour and go get lost in her world for a little while. she also has a great flickr stream (how i found her blog in the first place, thanks flickr)

camper

as far as i can remember camper was one of the first famous international designer brands that opened a store in south africa (possibly in 2001/2? i remember going to the shop in the waterfront in my first year of university). their shoes were of such quality & so different from anything else you could get at the time. the boots were especially covetable (though pricey…), and everyone loved their twin range of shoes which were so clever & cute.

whiskerino

i found cary norton‘s collection of beard photos on flickr…

… which lead me to the official website of whiskerino:

Beards used to be glorified as signs of virility and manliness… In early America, men that could not grow facial hair were demeaned less advanced and uncivilized. Now we have come full circle where our own society promotes this emasculated version of maleness. Where to be a man is to be clean-shaved; to be respectable is not to have a beard. Let us return to our roots! Let us return to true masculinity! Let us cry out with one voice:

“I WILL HAVE A BEARD!! I WILL BE A MAN!! I WILL NOT CONFORM TO YOUR RULES!”

:D
