Alexander McQueen

Fashion designer Alexander McQueen is dead. I was never someone who followed fashion, in fact for years I found haute couture baffling until I stopped seeing them as ostensibly clothes, but rather simply as art.

The reason I bring this up is not only because the guy apparently committed suicide, or that the man knew how to put on a show, but because I’ve been sitting on that picture of the Milan Fall 09 “The McQueensberry Rules” show for a year in my drafts folder, and I’ll never get it out if I don’t use it now.

Any of these would have been perfect for someone attending the Edwardian Ball.

Papa’s Got a Brand New Bag

“Handmade in San Francisco”
“Quality Shit Since 1989”
“Special Limited Edition” (1 of 1)

I needed a new laptop back since my old one developed some tears. (I think it was caused by the D-clip I hooked on to it.) After seeing that Timbuk2 was allowing people to custom order bags, I drove up to the retail store in SF, and made one just for me. A week later, it was ready. It cost $140, just $10 over the normal price.

I think it turned out pretty nice.
