Real People: Dressing Down a Suit
Open any men’s fashion magazine nowadays and you can read about the 101 ways to dress down a suit. The problem is, the suit is more often than not a sober looking garment, so when you try to “dress it down,” it can be like painting a mustache on the Mona Lisa. 

What’s wrong with that?

Here’s a video of some music by Junior Kimbrough.

In Japan, the ability to perfectly imitate—and even improve upon—the cocktails, cuisine and couture of foreign cultures isn’t limited to American products; there are spectacular French chefs and masterful Neapolitan pizzaioli who are actually Japanese. There’s something about the perspective of the Japanese that allows them to home in on the essential elements of foreign cultures and then perfectly recreate them at home. “What we see in Japan, in a wide range of pursuits, is a focus on mastery,” says Sarah Kovner, who teaches Japanese history at the University of Florida. “It’s true in traditional arts, it’s true of young people who dress up in Harajuku, it’s true of restaurateurs all over Japan.”

What couple does not have a limited budget? It is within limitations that we have to work in designing houses for the upper middle third of the democratic strata in our country. Our clients come from that strata. We are often asked: “Will you build a house for us for $15,000;” or “Will you build us a house for $25,000;” sometimes for $75,000 or even $200,000.

The other day someone came with $250,000. He embarrassed me. Very wealthy people usually go to some fashionable architect, not to a known radical who is never fashionable if he can help it.

Frank Lloyd Wright, 1954
