My Latest Preserves

Sitting down to write this editor’s letter has been the hardest thing I've done yet on my Preserve journey. I’m more intimidated than I should probably admit. I’m no editor, no artisan, no expert. And certainly no arbiter of what you should buy, wear, or eat. I am hungry, though...and not just for enchiladas.

    Man Versus Machine

    A long time ago, I read Robert Pirsig’s Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. My takeaway: Most individuals favor one of two approaches to life: the romantic or the classical.

    Hair Club for Men

    The first time I sat in a barbershop chair, I cried. Like a baby. By the time Lester had brushed the last bits of freshly cut hair from my shoulders, the heat radiating from my cheeks had dried salty tracks onto them, and the whole affair was made all the more painful by the knowing chuckles emitted by the collection of regulars who had looked on from a safe distance. But they understood: a boy’s first trip to the barbershop was a rite of passage, and could be a scary thing.

    Noir by Day

    Fashion has its set of rules: "stripes fight spots," "brown doesn't pair with black," and the faux pas of wearing white after Labor Day are about as famous as any. But what does any of this mean?
