I love seeing the vintage photos on The Sartorialist. It’s nice to remember that old people weren’t always just old people, but they were young and ballin’ at one time as well.
My awesome cousin started scanning a lot of old family pictures and it’s great to be able to see what my grandparents were like back in the day. My grandfather was in the army and actually traveled to Virginia to receive training. He is a very laid-back guy but puts effort to look good, even now at the ripe old age of 85. When I was young, I remember he would take long walks and go swimming. Now that he isn’t doing well physically, he stopped going to the gym but he still wears lots of Ralph Lauren!
Love you grandpa, I hope you get better soon.

Chinese New Year started 2 days ago, on February 5th. I’ve been celebrating this joyous occasion by happily by stuffing myself silly with the ridiculous amounts of food around me and saying positive words and phrases that tie into prosperity and good fortune. Lots of family time and embracing the hopes for a better year. Celebrations last for about 2 weeks and traditionally there are special customs for each day. I love Chinese New Year :]
Here’s an awesome short called “Year of the Rabbit” by Benji Davies & Jim Field:
The minimalistic black and white style is fantastic and I love how that car got owned by the fluffy rabbit.
Happy New Year everyone!
