The Road To Basel Episode 6: Inside Max Bernardini’s World Of Luxury Vintage | HODINKEE
"Is this real life…?!" That’s my reaction to this Hodinkee piece on Max Bernardini’s fantastic store in Milan. "Store" actually doesn’t seem to do justice to Bernardini Luxury Vintage, though… Click through to the 4-minute video to see what I mean!

Uniqlo Linen Cotton Blazer

Memorial Day weekend has just passed, and we are now officially in the season for summer attire! It’s been awhile since I’ve blogged here since I’m spending most of my time on my photo blog these days, but figured I’d do an intro to summer post!

I recently was on the hunt for a light blue linen jacket for the upcoming warmer months, and hit up all the usual suspects first, like Brooks Brothers:

And Billy Reid:

But do you really want to spend $450 dollars, especially for a jacket that’s probably going to be taken off and crumpled up at some point, anyways? That’s where Uniqlo comes in to save the day! I’ve blogged about Uniqlo in some of my previous “style on a budget" posts, and once again, I’ve found something that’s 90% of what I want for ~10% of the cost. Pick yours up here or in-store!

Do keep in mind — this jacket does run a little large. I usually am a 36-38 jacket, depending on the brand, but I had to go with an XS here. Size down one for best results!

Everyone, I’m elated to tell you that Tumblr will be joining Yahoo.

Before touching on how awesome this is, let me try to allay any concerns: We’re not turning purple. Our headquarters isn’t moving. Our team isn’t changing. Our roadmap isn’t changing. And our mission – to empower creators to…

Big news! Congrats to David Karp and the Tumblr team. A nice exit for a great NYC company. Yahoo, please don’t screw this one up? Thanks. :)
