I have an M6L in turquoise. If I hadn't acquired in the slightly strange way in which I did - long story - I would have gone for an S3L in orange. The 6 gears are simply unnecessary and I would prefer a flat bar. If you prefer a more upright ride, the new H models look good.

Does anything else matter?

But there is also something beautiful about sheer functionality. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

These objects may boast great functionality, but I don't think there is much beauty or style in them.

Take the new 5D, for example. Even assuming the physical shape reflects underlying functionality, the details seem needlessly incoherent. Why are there three or four different fonts on the front of the camera body? Surely, they could have made do with two (one for the logo, one for everything else). For that matter, why include text on the front of the camera at all? Seems like nothing but a concession to broader commercial interests. What is the purpose of the red stripe around the lens other than to designate it as a higher-priced L model?

When I try to look at DSLRs like this the same way I'd look at a performance vehicle, I can sometimes begin to appreciate their aesthetics, following a different paradigm than my MP though they may be. But then I can't help but wonder why there wasn't more finesse in the execution and I realize they're ultimately uglier than they need to be.

I try my hardest. My heart beats for the teal colour (very much like Bo Fajan pieces).

Plus, I like animals.

Hell yes. Thinkpads are amazing machines, I have 2. One's going on 6 and the other is a tender young 2 years old.

Practical, serious computers that will last for ages. The simple design will never look out of place, and IBM (sorry, lenovo these days) added all the right buttons to make them more useful than any other laptop I've used.

On a similar note, the logitech m505 is just about the perfect mouse:

Three button with a tilt wheel, which I have set to function as back/forward. Simple design with some heft that fits great in your (well, mine anyway) hand. Works great on any surface.


Unrelated, I keep several of these lying around, and one in my wallet. Such a useful little thing to have around, great classic design and great quality.

Hello fellow trombonist. Excellent post. I happen to prefer another variety both aesthetically and practically:

did you go to their factory to get fitted? It was a fantastic experience, first time I ever go something sorta bespoke...

Greetings to yet another fellow trombonist - who knew how many of us there were...

I got mine (well, my main one at least... I own more than I care to admit) fitted at the Shires factory. It was also my first experience with something quasi-bespoke. In addition to getting a great instrument out of it, the process taught me a surprising amount about my own playing and preferences. I can only assume the process of buying bespoke clothing can be similarly enlightening for the educated buyer.
