This site has become so huge that a lot of things get buried in the archives. Therefore, I’ve decided that once a week I’m going to post links to old entries of the week, from the year before. In the future, I’ll probably post these entries on weekends; I thought I’d do it today since I just thought of it. Do you think it’s a good idea? If you don’t think so, let me know and I’ll stop.
Here are the more memorable posts from June 1-8, 2005:
Seam class specifications: Boring but useful; where to get sewing specifications for free.
Bloggers, mothers and tommys run amok: Whereupon I muse/rant about Tommy Hilfiger, my mother, the honesty of craftsmanship and entertain the notion of becoming a licensed electrician. One of my favorite posts.
RAQ: rarely asked questions. This post wasn’t as popular as I’d hoped. I think the most important questions are the ones we don’t ask or don’t know to ask.
Smoking & Drinking: cherished industry traditions. Another favorite post. Nobody in the industry trusts non-smokers. And about Thomas Mahon who -probably justifiably- continues to ignore me.
The Clothing Broker. How I met Miracle and why you’ll never meet a rude con artist or used car salesman. In other words, why you should trust the rude people you meet in the apparel industry.
