"Fall in love. Give unconditionally. Be hurt. Not for their looks, their sex appeal, or their money. But for who they are as a person.. It’s hard in a city like Singapore, but try."

"I’m writing a play about the nature of truth, and how difficult it is to convey the truth when everybody is speaking a different language. For example, the word ‘terrorist’ and the word ‘freedom fighter’ are used to refer to the exact same people at the exact same time. With everyone speaking differently, truth is almost impossible to agree upon. Yet believing in the existence of truth is the only thing that keeps us from devolving into tribal warfare. Because without the existence of truth, the person who is most powerful becomes the person who is right."

"I saw a bit of utility in having initials on one item, having Swaine Adeney engrave my initials on the collar of my travel umbrella. Looking back I should have had them engrave ‘Stolen from Réginald-Jérôme de Mans’ instead."

Réginald-Jérôme de Mans in a post about monograms and engravings, suggesting what I think might be the most useful engraving of all.  (via putthison)

Last Call

A friendly reminder that this Friday is the last day to put in an order for the custom run of tobacco Fresco I’m organizing. If you’re unfamiliar with Fresco, you can learn everything there is to know about it here.

Readers who don’t yet have a tailor might be interested to know that No Man Walks Alone will be taking some of this cloth for a project with Sartoria Formosa. Formosa, for those unfamiliar, is one of the more renowned tailoring houses in Naples. The firm’s founder, Mario Formosa, was a tailor who dressed some of Italy’s most famous stars in the mid-20th century, and many say that he cut a better double breasted jacket than Rubinacci at the time.

Cold Summer Weather
The weather looks promising in San Francisco this weekend, with temperatures reaching 76 degrees on Sunday. However, San Francisco’s summer weather is anything but predictable. This photo was taken early last month on a cloudy day with a high of 61.

"If it’s any consolation, it was exactly as funny as I thought it would be."

I do a lot of these.

So do other people.

"

I love being horribly straightforward. I love sending reckless text messages (because how reckless can a form of digitized communication be?) and telling people I love them and telling people they are absolutely magical humans and I cannot believe they really exist. I love saying, “Kiss me harder,” and “You’re a good person,” and, “You brighten my day.” I live my life as straight-forward as possible.

Because one day, I might get hit by a bus.

Maybe it’s weird. Maybe it’s scary. Maybe it seems downright impossible to just be—to just let people know you want them, need them, feel like, in this very moment, you will die if you do not see them, hold them, touch them in some way whether its your feet on their thighs on the couch or your tongue in their mouth or your heart in their hands.

But there is nothing more beautiful than being desperate.

And there is nothing more risky than pretending not to care.

We are young and we are human and we are beautiful and we are not as in control as we think we are. We never know who needs us back. We never know the magic that can arise between ourselves and other humans.

We never know when the bus is coming.

"I have a saddest moment, but I haven’t told anyone, not even my parents, closest friends - not even to the man I love. My religion forbids that I disclose my sexuality, and so do my parents. My biggest regret in life has been not being a good Muslim. I don’t pray five times everyday, I am involved in casual sex, and I drink… I am also suffering from a disease which has no cure.. I have AIDS."

Please share regardless of whether or not you know anyone in such a situation - we’re positive that even the slightest of efforts such as this could make a big difference to someone.
