“These days the New York subway is a cash-losing cow, breaking down regularly (thanks, G train) and stripped of any character, unless you venture deep into Brooklyn. Back in the 80s, you literally took your life into your own hands every time you ventured down there, as these gritty, menacing photos from Bruce Davidson off the Retronaut website reveal. “(via Photos of New York subway riders in the 1980s — Lost At E Minor: For creative people)
Mostly agree, except that the NYC subway system is still the most efficient and comprehensive subway or city train system in America by far. Yeah it’s always under construction, but spend a week in say Chicago or SF only using public transportation and you’ll quickly be reminded of just how convenient it is.
But damn, I miss those end to end burners.
After spending over a decade working in men's fashion and retail, I figured it was about time to start sharing everything I've learned and loved over the years. I use my background in Anthropology and Archaeology as a lens to view the clothing men wear everyday and the lifestyle they choose to lead. I'm not just excited about the way an ensemble looks, but rather interested in why and how it was put together and what that means about our society.
