Gah! I missed the kick starter. I didn’t know I needed this until it was too late!
Same boat. Womp womp.

I would pay $13 to see a feature length version of this in Real 3D™.

Wow. What a statement.
November of Dressing Nicely 2013
Hey folks, wanted to give everyone on here a heads up about what’s coming for the 4th annual installment of #NODN.
For those who aren’t familiar: A guy from LA came into the office to take some meetings with my bosses. He was the best-dressed dude I’ve seen in years.
Upon seeing him, the women in my office had a response similar to this:
Upon finding out the dude was from LA, a co-worker stated, “Oh of course, no guy who lives in Chicago would look like that.” The basic emphasis was: Guys in Chicago usually don’t care what they look like.
So I did. Every single day for the month of November, I dressed to my absolute best effort. No hoodies and “it’s Friday, I’m hungover” outfits. And I wasn’t the only one. A large collective of gents joined up. I posted pics everyday in a gallery for the work blog and it ballooned to the point where we’re still doing it 4 years later. This year, the initiative grows into it’s next phase.
Starting next week, we’re launching some great editorial pieces and a fun contest. (Think March Madness. More to come.) Other than that, I’d love to spotlight you, the tireless Tumblr fashion community who no one believes exist until one of you gets a book deal or some other amazing opportunity.
Off the top of my head:
Got a store? We’ll stop by. Done it before.
Are you good at something relating to dressing nicely? (can you tie a bow tie? Do you know how to shop for a dress that makes you look smoking hot but you can also wear to work? Do you know what to look for when you’re shopping, be it online or in-store?) Let’s make a video.
Got a product you think well-dressed people would respond to or need in their lives? Let’s do a roundup.
All in all, #NODN is about taking pride in your appearance. It’s about feeling good. It’s about you feeling like the best possible version of yourself, and sharing that with the world.
Send me an e-mail if you have any ideas. Share the word, won’t you?
Let’s do this!
This is the smartest things I’ve read today and I am ashamed at how close to home some of it hits.
Halloween costume? Found it!
It’s Chicago Day at the Columbian Exposition!, 1893, Chicago.
On this date, chosen to commemorate the anniversary of the Great Fire, the fair would break records with over 715,000 people visiting the grounds in one day.

Sharing my birthday with Chicago Day is really cool.
Can’t wait for the MONSTER CONCERT!
Q3 Deviant Review Vine Compilation
Every 3 months at work we choose an artist to create an original piece that represents the top technology stories from the last quarter.
We tapped artist Jason Mante (my current favorite Vine artist) to create a series of Vines based on this quarter’s stories. This is a compilation of the result.
I love how the 10 vines strung together creates this schizophrenic, dystopian channel surfing feel.
Can we stop making fun of millennials now? Cool, thanks.
