Traveling, performing, making, dressing and more...

Performed at the Isue Project Room last week. Had some technical diifculties:


The lighting was nice...
a bit frustrated, but then again I always look this way when performing...
Had to have one of the sound guys hold my groud for me while I was performing, I eventually involved in one of pieces which turned out ot be my favorite one. Tried to make light out of a situation "muy dificil"....
Had to stretch......
Had a huge mixer to work with, it was a bit disconserting....

color...
At the New Museum opening for the 3 new commisions...
a video piece...was slow and had an old man being sexual...the last taboo?
up the stairs for the next show:
Another video piece, was interesting but we had to to go to catch our friend Dennis's new restaurant opening a few streets away...


When we got there they forgot to put our name on the list then they said they ran out of food...
But we're still proud of them. Maybe we'll eat there some time soon.





Our most historical outfit at Houndstooth since our opening....


this shirt is from a manufacutere from the 1920's called Budd that was later bought out by another company that I can't remember, but they have a shirt similar to this at the Costume Institute here in NYC:

We recieved these "mother of pearl" buttons and cufflink set on the same day and both shirt and accessories sold to the same man. Good taste.

a close up. So beautiful. My favorite by far...
THe shirst was beautifully deconstructing. There were tears and repairs everywhere and the cotton was so fragile, this is what i love about clothing. It has this ability to never look the same or to fall apart and one has no control over it. The present is your only friend....
This 3-piece suit that we put with the shirt was once owned by author Charles Nordhoff that wrote "Mutiny on the Bounty" in 1932 and was made into a movie starring Clark Gable in 1935 and was one of the first movie trilogies (The Bounty Trilogy) made in Hollywood. It's based on an American Revolutionary war story in which Lieutenant William Bligh had to deal with a mutiny on his ship that involved Fletcher Christian who wanted to take over. Christian and his supporters were then cast away on a small boat.  The movie was remade in 1962 and directed by Lewis Mileston and starred Marlon Brando. The suit has Charles Nordhoffs signature and date that it was made and we are selling it for $2,500. It belongs in a museum, period.

Button details.
The pants are a testament to classic men's tailoring. It is by far the most intricatley tailored suit that we have ever had in the store. 
The buttons are made of metal. Enough said....

A cuff link display that I mad eof our new accessories for the Spring.

My favorite are the multi-colored ones...

These sold so fast:

So this evening I was late on my way to a dance performance when I ran into my favorite subway artisan who cuts your face out of paper in 5 minutes:


He is a very talented man from China. He's at the Union Square "L" train stop. Each face costs $10 and if you don't the money then he'll just ask you to model for him so he can get some practice in. 

He's very fast...
IT'S ME! I want ot host a show of his at a friends gallery later this year. We'll see what happens.
Goooooood Night-morning-afternoon.
