Comments on “SIGNALS”
Ah, discovered this institution while passing through Las Vegas on my way to the Mojave for a photo workshop last spring. They are amazingly good, fast and crowded–all the time. My fellow photogs insisted we go back–a third time–10 days later upon our return to town. They are THAT GOOD. Wish they had them in the East.
What a banal set of rooms Nick Wooster has. Gray, gray, and more gray. I’ve seen his pic on various style blogs as an arbiter of sartorial taste. JC Penney used to have sensible clothes for those of modest means- no more thanks to him and Ron Johnson. I’ve wondered why I no longer see decent men’s things at Neiman Marcus- once again Nick Wooster strikes. Good on him that he finds success selling himself to the Corporate American Garment Industry. Bad on us that we must suffer his “curatorial judgment.” At least he no longer lives in LA.
Nice heads up on the French army rations story…foreign military rations were always (or at least used to be) better than their U.S. counterparts. I was able to get some German and French rations when I briefly worked for the U.N. in Somalia in the 1990s, but U.S. customs confiscated them from me. Which made me very unhappy…
