The Nine Best Things We’ve Seen This Week

A Retrospective of November 26–December 2

By Geoff Rynex
Much of our job revolves around staring at computer screens, finding things that have made our lives better and will do the same for you. We care that much. Here are this week’s findings...


@josephineskriver showed some backstage fatigue before Wednesday’s VS Fashion Show.

The Re-Stylists—someone to handpick shoes for the lady in your life (with quarterly, bimonthly or monthly options). Someone who is actually two women who are celebrity stylists.

Car Trouble: New York sees your YouTube stardom and raises you an “I don’t give a shit.”

Via @art_collective, @zachking and @rachelmking forced the mannequin challenge into obsolescence.

CBGB Awning—you’ll soon be able to own one of the original awnings from the mecca of American punk.

Consider the Prairie: The Times went on a literary pilgrimage to David Foster Wallace’s Central Illinois.

@sidandannmashburn matched the carpet with the boots.

David Hart for Johnston & Murphy—a small line of loafers and a patent leather lace-up that look built for holiday parties, designed with the help of one of our favorite designers.

Strained Relations: Mitt Romney’s smile at his no doubt awkwardness-free dinner with the [sigh] president-elect says it all.

Geoff Rynex is the only person named Geoff Rynex in the history of mankind. He would rather have the best burger than the best steak, likes hearing bartender stories and spends too much money on clothes.
