first the news – i have a super casual beer date tomorrow night.  it’s been so long since i’ve had a date, i’m not sure what to do.  now the worry of what to wear etc… fuck. 

and now, the pictures.  i have a ton of amazing pics that i want to share with you, so i’m gonna have to break them up into pieces.  here’s the first bunch.  let’s call this set milan street scenes.  my favorite parts of milano are really the streets, long, winding streets that are simply packed with people, cars and vespas – it was incredible really (now i’m completely jonsing for a “smartcar” – good thing they finally are coming to the u.s. next year).

one thing i fell in love with in milan was all the cable car lines – they are quite literally, everywhere – they add an really interesting horizontal line in the pics.

all over milano are these old buildings that are quite literally falling down (or maybe they’ve never been quite properly “held up” since the war).  in such a cosmopolitan city, it puts things in perspective a bit when you see buildings on their last legs.  note the porta-john in the pic – good use of photographic composistion there eh?

photos lovely, date good.

my rule for those kind of meetings… dark jeans, brown shoes, and either a light blue or pistachio shirt. every time. every. solid color, light and solid.

works every time.

make sure your belt matches the shoes… wait, who am i trying to tell!…
