Looking in on Old & New

Jul 18th, 2011 | Categories: Housekeeping | by Michael Williams

The good people from (capsule) + Randy Goldberg and I kicked off our little impromptu shop Old & New yesterday on New York’s far West Side this weekend. While it was stifling hot, everyone managed to have a good time amongst some great vintage and a few up-and-coming brands. I spent most of the time running around and chatting with folks, I did manage to sneak a couple of shots of the place to give you an idea of what the place is all about. The shop continues on all day today (Monday 7/18) & tomorrow right around the corner from (capsule) and all are welcome.

Happy Thanksgiving | Convenience is the Enemy

Nov 25th, 2010 | Categories: Housekeeping | by Michael Williams

I hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving. I am especially thankful this chilly November day (in Ohio) for everyone that reads and supports ACL. The site has become quite a little community, something that is really amazing to me. So, my thanks to you all.

Posting this video has become a bit of a tradition and I love to keep traditions alive, so here you go. I hope you and your family have a happy, healthly and well fed day.

P.S. If you are planning on getting up at 4am tomorrow to buy a $3 television-set you should be ashamed of yourself.

ACL x Tokyo

Nov 8th, 2010 | Categories: Housekeeping | by Michael Williams

A note of housekeeping, ACL will be in Tokyo all week for a little work and a little fun (and for sushi shaped donuts, naturally). Accordingly, the site will be on light duty and posting may be sporadic. Your patience is appreciated. Keep an eye on the ACL Twitter feed if you want to follow the action live.
