    too far from the sea
    I'm about an hour and a half away. I'd stop by and say hey, but the family and I have a pretty busy weekend ahead. You'll be at the Salt Palace I imagine, so pretty much everything I'm mentioning is within about 5-6 blocks.

    Any Meal
    Bambara (202 S Main, on the bottom floor of Hotel Monaco)- Hands down the best restaurant in SLC. Hotel Monaco is our favorite hotel as well.

    Breakfast
    Eva's Bakery (155 S Main)- amazing French bakery with cute waitresses

    Lunch
    Tony Caputo's (314 West 300 South)- Amazing Italian deli. Go for the meatball sandwich, and take some artisan chocolate with you.
    Carlucci's (right next to Tony Caputo's) - Also great sandwiches, with wonderful pastries. (great coffee, too, if you want breakfast)
    Este Pizza (156 E 200 S)- For the closest thing to NY style pizza this far west

    Dinner
    Tin Angel (365 West 400 South)- Fantastic tapas style with local ingredients
    Red Rock Brewery (254 South 200 West)- If you are looking for a good brew pub
    Cucina Toscana (right behind Tony Caputo's)- wonderful upscale Italian
    Copper Onion (111 E Broadway)- A little farther away, but well worth it
    Naked Fish (67 W 100 S)- Some of the best sushi I've ever had
    Himalayan Kitchen (360 S State St) - For good Nepalese

    Coffee
    Jack Mormon Coffee (82 E Street)- It's a drive, but stop by if you like coffee and want to have your mind blown.

    Hmm, I will have to think about other things, but that should get you started!

    If you want to get outdoors and have a car, I recommend heading north to Antelope Island State Park in the middle of Great Salt Lake or east up to Park City. The Utah Museum of Natural History is pretty rad. If you are looking for clothes, Bastille in the Gateway Mall is pretty much the only place, and even then, it's Nudies and Gitman, with some RO and lots of G-Star.

    not trying to cause a shitstorm but I'm too afraid to ask on SZ, what exactly do they mean by normcore? Is every fit with jeans and gats normcore? Is 90% of sf waywt normcore? When does it stop being normcore and become w/e normcore isn't?

    different people mean different things. the whole tumblr trend of #normcore just means really basic, simple pieces [and relying to good looks / youth to still pull it off]. on SZ it means not wearing artisanal brands / RO / BBS, or wearing them but looking like you don't know what you're doing

    there was a discussion of normcore earlier in this thread I think, in particular some quote/definition by Fuuma

    So, Christophe Loiron (of Mister Freedom) made a Vietnam-War inspired collection for this Spring, which has pieces with these two patches on them.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    When I asked him about it on Twitter, he said that this collection is about the irony of war and imperialism. But when I asked him to elaborate over email, he declined -- saying that people who call him racist are trolls and that if that's the level of conversation we're starting at, he'll decline to comment at all. (It wasn't me who called him racist -- I actually went out of my way to talk about how much I like his brand, and how I own and wear a lot of his stuff. Jon Moy over at Four Pins called him a racist).

    I'm supposed to write a post about this for a website, but -- without Loiron's view -- I don't know what really can be said. I don't want to say this is offensive imagery, because that seems obvious and doesn't push the convo anywhere.

    Only thing I can think of: compare this to Barry McGee's collab with Adidas (which supposedly reclaimed racist imagery) and A&F's blunder with their Asian laundrymen t-shirts.

    Really disappointed Loiron has gotten so defensive and declined to comment at all. My guess is that he thought it would be super punk rock to put this offensive image on a jacket, but didn't think about how others would react to it. (He's also been signing some promotional Tweets and blog posts with "Charly" (sic))

    Reminds me a bit of the "Manifest Destiny" GAP/McNairy/GQ tee.

    Mister Freedom stuff is lovely, but...

    ...honestly, if I saw someone wearing a shirt with that patch, my initial response would be WHAT THE HELL PEOPLE. (And that would only be tempered a leeetle if it was someone Vietnamese wearing it.)

    How does someone wearing that patch bring any irony or playfulness to thoughts on war, race and imperialism? Dude doesn't seem to re-imagining/re-interpreting the kind of patches that were around at the same, just coming up with one similarly offensive.
