I have been cooking on the line. I got two cooks to help me, and I plan small menus that balance movement, efficiency, inventory turnover and freshness, and I compensate for the shortcomings of a tiny tiny kitchen with technologies such as sous vide. It's still a hell of a lot of work, about 12-14 hrs a day at the shop. The two cooks are fantastic workers and have really changed my outlook on a lot of things. One girl came in to interview, wearing a fitted hat and carrying a skateboard, and said she was just told to show up; I didn't really know what to make of her so I told her to go over to the corner that was less busy and mince me a half a dozen onions. She ended up doing so with technical proficiency and speed, and I was impressed. She did a few more tasks and I realized she was good for the job. That's been a month or so now, but she has really impressed me with her work ethic and her ability to get the job done. It has been humbling to work alongside her. We're scrubbing down deep fryers, taking out big food refuse bins, it's ugly and the pure essence of work, the constant doings, standing on your own two feet. I was working hard and trying to work harder than anyone else, but these kids try to out work me. Anyway, that part is good. I am glad to have had this experience if only for getting back into the real world, off the internet fashion sphere for a short time.
This is the best thing I've read and I can complete relate with this with my recent visit to Seoul. Unfortunately I didn't get to visit Scout but will hope I get a chance next time.
Skaters in my town wore thrift-store perfectos with Misfits, NOFX, etc patches and studs attached to them and Jack Daniels shirts and ripped black jeans and ripped vans. Most of them skateboarded, but some just smoked cigarettes and watched.
I know of one, like basil mentioned. also the dude who took my pictures is a professional photographer and really good skater and he wears cable knit cardigans, denim jackets, raw denim, and Clark's. this was a last minute photo shoot anyways.
plus he didn't have any complaints with the outfit.
usually do some iteration of this. my t000s look way too skinny on me tho. need some jet black 511's..

Thanks. this was a real last minute thing anyways, hence the darkness. I was at work, my friend got an e-mail from a modeling agency offering money for pictures of skaters, wanted the next morning, so we went to some place right after I got off.
so hopefully that explains the lack of professionalism. the guy who took the photos shoots pictures of cars for a dealership, and does random stuff like this.
Got my order in for a Dark Royal Blue calf QDR
though i've been thinking over last 2 days how versatile the color is, given that my wardrobe is raw jeans + almost all brown shoes, and other business casual type stuff
and i fear im starting to annoy with all the changes lol.
