Hey, gidday mates! How are we, how are we? Like I keep saying, I’m in the midst of a love affair with camp collar short sleeve shirts, redecorating my apartment, and my new dog Fifi (not necessarily in that order). To celebrate, I thought I’d share a few of my favorite things, which is a feature I typically reserve for Instagram. So with that in mind, read on.Click to Continue!
If I had friends who loved me, this entire photo series would be dedicated to stills from the new Batman film, but sadly, despite the fact that it was so popular that even attempting to buy tickets was a hazardous endeavour, I couldn’t find a single soul to go with me.

Ashika after a trip to Handsome Dan’s Snocone and Candy Stand. The most exciting thing that happened to me this week was buying an iPhone and downloading Instagram. Since Tuesday I’ve been going buck wild on the photo front, and it’s taken me back to the days when I used to spend hours on my old Blogspot photo diary before I switched it to Tumblr. (If you haven’t already, FOLLOW ME ON INSTAGRAM! My username is isaaclikes_.)

One of the things that’s been most interesting for me throughout the Little Brother design process has been working with colour. As a general rule, guys stick to the tried and true: Navy blue, charcoal, black, white, khaki etc. But as evidenced by the sheer amount of men walking the streets of New York in loud shorts right now, that rule goes out the window the moment temperatures explode. (At time of writing, it’s 32 degrees outside.) When we were selecting fabrics for our shorts programme, I couldn’t believe the variety on offer. “These are crazy,” I said. “No NewClick to Continue!
