Are You Uncool If You Only Own One Pair of Glasses? And, unless the Yankees pay your salary, no one expects you to wear the same hat day after day, so why restrict yourself to the same eyeglasses? “When you have more than one pair, you don't get pigeonholed as 'the guy with the round glasses,'” said [...]

John Jacob Bausch (July 25, 1830 – February 14, 1926) was a German American maker of optical instruments who co-founded Bausch & Lomb (with Henry Lomb).
Born as Jakob Bausch in Groß Süßen (today part of Süßen) in Baden-Württemberg, Germany to Georg Bausch, a baker, and his wife Anna Schmid. Bausch was eighteen when he moved to Bern, Switzerland, where he found work in an optical shop designing camera lenses. The following year he emigrated to the United States. Upon his arrival in Rochester, New York he changed his first name to John.
In 1853, Bausch opened a retail optical shop in Rochester. Bausch sold spectacles, thermometers, field glasses, magnifiers and opera glasses. His friend Henry Lomb invested his savings in Bausch's shop and in 1855 became his partner.
Trump “University”: This was a pretty bogus business. Trump should be ashamed of himself for letting his name be associated with that. While I would love someone with the demeanor of Mitt Romney to be president, unfortunately that’s not going to happen. In fact, the upper-class demeanor of Mitt Romney turned off the blue-collar white voters he needed to win states like Ohio. Trump ties made in China: I think that putting a billionaire real estate developer’s name on a tie is ridiculous. And Why would Trump want to get involved with a silly side business like that anyway. But of course the ties are made in China or some other place with low wages. During the last week on this blog, we mentioned that luxury paper notebooks like Moleskine and Baron Fig, and eyeglass frames and lenses are all manufactured in China.

Growing up in New York you either directly or indirectly experience some amazing things, the GOP Convention- I’m playing, an episode of Law + Order being shot, a performance outside of the MTV Awards and of course Fashion Week. See back in the nineties, it was called Seventh on Sixth, as many designers had showrooms on Seventh Avenue also known as Fashion Avenue and the fashion shows would take place at Bryant Park which is located on Sixth Avenue, see Seventh on Sixth. Before blogs, social media and the Kardashians, the only way I was able to feed my hunger for the fashion industry was by watching the 11 o’clock news and reading the newspapers. I wasn't huge on labels, correction, my mother wasn't huge on.

Woran erkennt man einen Eames-Stuhl der ersten Generation? „Ganz einfach“, sagt Ulla Jahn. Sie hebt ein Modell aus dem Schaufenster, dreht es auf den Kopf und zeigt auf den kaum wahrnehmbaren Wulst, der am Rand der blassgelben Sitzschale entlangläuft. „Bei den ersten Exemplaren war ein Seil eingegossen, aus Stabilitätsgründen. Der Sitz bestand aus Polyesterharz und Glasfasern, an der Mischung musste man aber anfangs noch feilen.“Gut 2000 Stühle mit dem sogenannten „Rope Edge“ wurden 1950...
