It’s really good not having any view or idea about this or that point. We don’t suffer these days from any lack of communication, but rather from all the forces making us say things when we’ve nothing much to say.

on tattooes and mortality
"It’s definitely morbid. I remember this one time I tattooed a guy, I think it was a cross on his chest. The next day that dude got murdered in a drive-by shooting. When I found out, that hit me hard. One of the last things that guy did in his time on earth was hang out with me and listen to records while I put an image on him. And now he and the tattoo are gone. It’s weird to think about. The frailty in it all."

"In the day, when the frog is asleep, a gold membrane creeps over its eyes. It lets in a small amount of light, enough so that if a predator approaches, the non-poisonous frog can wake up, show its bulging red eyes and present its yellow feet in a bid to make the would-be attacker think twice."
My work is launching our new website shortly, and for the “About Us” section, we were asked to bring a selection of objects for a photograph representing our personalities. Not a true EDC shot since, well, I don’t carry wooden toy blocks around with me, but a fun opportunity to include some of my favorite #menswear things.
For those of you who’ve been asking how the shell cordovan on my Meermin longwings has been holding up, here you go—this is what they look like after an application of Saphir Renovateur and a few minutes of brushing.
