“Young Lady, I Have Shoes Older Than You!” – Seeing the Nike Air Max Kicks You Bought in the 1990’s Come Back as Retros…

Monday, February 22nd, 2016

It was the 1990’s. Nike had shoes. I bought a pair at the Honolulu Costco, the one Imelda Marcos sends her people to, even these days, AFAIK. Anyway, now the same exact shoe is being sold as new as a part of Nike’s retro line:

In the spirit of McBaker, at McAllister and Baker, comes “Fellbury.”

$31 T-shirts will never be the same.

What’s next – Claybury, Colbury, Shrabury, or Stanbury? Or perhaps Fellton, Fellon, Fellder, or Fellyan?

We Can Only Hope.

Cruel Shoes: If Ronald McDonald Wore High Heels

Or are these platform heels? (One supposes that’s a subcategory of high heel, but one doesn’t know for sure)

Kings Things:

– The #1 occupation for those with a foot fetish is … shoe salesman, just saying.

– I talked with a shoe salesman in Union Square one time. He side his “primary job” as a salesperson was to determine if the customer wanted to buy some new kicks TODAY. “Women will go shoe shopping to kill time, while waiting for a bus.” OTOH, if you told him that you were a serious shopper, he’d “have all the time in the world for you.” That’s life on commish, I s’pose.

Meet The New SF Businessman: BART Hits Peak Hipster with This Camouflage Suit – A HARMLESS FORM OF AGGRESSION

Monday, August 10th, 2015

A great capture from Erin Sherbert:


Cf. Conversations with Tom Wolfe by Dorothy McInnis Scura:

“Q. First I must ask you: why do you affect those crazy white suits?

A. In 1962, I was in a tailor shop and had a conventional summer suit made from some white silk tweed that impressed me. But the suit was too hot for the summer. Then I began wearing it in December. People became annoyed by the sight of a white suit in winter. (Those were innocent times in 1962.)  Soon I discovered I had this marvelous, harmless form of aggression going for me. So I branched out into white suits with double-vested weskits and rows of white-covered buttons. Getting dressed in the morning was suddenly fun.”

It Has Come To Pass: “MEWNI” T-Shirts! – Imagining America’s Slowest Big-City Transit System as Catbus

This was the promise, seven long years ago:

MTA director Nat Ford is ebullient as he announces the launch of CatBus service

(Good times.)

But now its time for you to Dream Into Action by hearing the Good News and  purchasing your very own MEWNI T-shirt from Black Sheep Comics.

Oh what a day! What a lovely day:

Order now afore our oppressive SFMTA overlords* litigate the entire operation out of business.

(Mens Small only? You see, I’m six foot one and  I’m tons o’ fun, so I CRY FOUL. Nevertheless, I’ll be a-ordering, as Winter is Coming.)

This is, by far, the best use of MUNI’s Snake Logo ever.

Order now, and you’ll be looking Chic in no time.


What would it be like if buses in San Francisco were Catbuses…. They’d be called “MEWNI’s”!

This shirt design is inspired by the CATBUS from Hayao Miyazaki’s film “My Neighbor Totoro” and San Francisco bus “MUNI”.

Women size T-Shirts are printed on Bella brand shirts. Please be advised that it is recommended that you select a size larger than you’re regular size to ensure a more comfortable fit.”

*Saying, “Enjoy the candy” while handing over the gun? Good one, MUNI!
