H/T to my buddy Hot Whiskey for tipping me off on how to spot these Daiki Suzuki (creator of Engineered Garments) pieces for WWM. The details on these jackets are outstanding (it’s got a flipping map pocket for G’s sake) and the lightweight cotton fabric should play well all summer long.
No surprise to regular readers of this blog, but the casual jacket/OCBD/Chino look has become by go to uniform for 60% of the work week, and finding interesting pieces like this makes getting dressed each morning that much more enjoyable.
The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. But when you’re inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system and that makes them our enemy. You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it.
Torii magic at the Fushimi Inari Taisha (伏見稲荷大社) in Kyoto.
Today I went to Fushimi Inari Taisha (伏見稲荷大社) in Kyoto to climb Mount Inari. Following the trail up the mountain was quite exciting. So many torii and shrines along the way to the top, never seen so many torii. I had a lot of fun and and met many kind hikers along the way!
