The comments are pretty funny/ridiculous in that article.

Also HAackermann show was awful. Here's hoping tomorrow delivers some goods

Fielding any recommendations for food (yes!) snacks (sure!) museums (hell yeah!) shopping (eh) drinks (why not) and anything else I should see. No tourist spots please - not that I don't like them, I think I've just seen them all already. I'm American and from New York so please don't recommend me a burger or anything like that.

Food:
Dishoom - several locations
St. John Bread & Wine
Beigel Bake - you don't get salt beef &bagel in NYC
J Sheekey - the fish pie is quite good

Drinks-
Nightjar makes good cocktails

Haven't seen much of anything this season that has sparked any kind of interest except for maybe Gosha and Visvim. But more so than the clothes, the energy of them showing at Pitti (and Visvim showing a runway show for the first time) is what was really interesting. There was something really nostalgic for me about the Gosha show as well. Reminded me of the 90's with all that Fila swag.

Where in the world outside of HLorenzo and DSM can anyone even grab walter?

I always want to think that someday I'll be able to be the comic spaceman he's been designing for forever, but outside of getting surrendering my first born to H Lorenzo, buying a longshirt from Vibskov in NYC, or a long coat from DSM, he seems to be completely ignored. SuspensionPoint carried a few of their pieces ages ago, but understandably hasn't done another buy

How has he survived for so long? I can't help but love his work but I can't figure out how he's been able to keep going

That said I love the ss show

Thank you for all of the advice everyone! I'm on my phone so I can't go back and quote and respond to it all, so I'm just quoting this last one. All of the recs were much appreciated, and a good chunk of them I had already done in the past or on this trip and enjoyed so I think we're on the same page lol (except who the heck recommends pizza???)

I had really enjoyed dishoom when I was here for work in 2012, and now I see a bunch have popped up around the city. Still good?

St. John bread and wine is closed for renovations but I already went to the other St. John the other night to chill and snack and drink for a while and I'll be going there again tonight for dinner. (Definitely one of my favorite places in town) Salt beef bagel was necessary for sure, knocked that out one of my first nights here.

Based on all of this I would have loved to try J Sheeky for a fish pie but I actually just had a fish pie for lunch yesterday at Wright Brothers (?) I think that was the name, not the American guys with the planes though.

Eaten a bunch of good stuff so far though - had oysters, deviled herring roe, and fish and chips on the seaside in Whitstable, sat beef bagel of course, fish pie, steak and kidney pie, potted shrimps, pigeon squab, full English breakfast, lots of cask ales, lots of Neal's yard cheese, Sunday roast lamb with all the fixings after a romp around Hampstead Heath, Eccles cake with lancashire, a "99" ice cream from a van with all the fixings, etc etc. all the things I can't get back home smile.gif

too late for you now but for the record I always recommend tayyabs to anyone into spicy food, surroundings are fairly basic but it's a real hidden gem (best combined with a trip to the whitechapel art gallery).

I watched a rerun of Diners Drive-Ins and Dives where Guy was touring London. I missed the first part of the episode but he seemed to enjoy the food at Hook Camden and Bird of Smithfield

Is that an unironic Guy Fieri recommendation?

Italian is quite useful if you,re dealing with production and I'm sure you've noticed Japanese people tend to have very poor english so Japan mags/design/etc.
