Asia - Where to stay

Hey Gang - I thought it would be fun to start a thread listing recommendations for hotels across Asia. Personally I am looking for a recommendation for Bangkok in a few weeks. Any ideas for hotels or airbnbs are welcome. Below are a few places I enjoy when overseas. Hong Kong - The Kowloon Hotel Tai...

Re: Amer Sports purchase

This is huge and something I've followed closely. I would imagine the top brands like Arc'teryx and Salomon will remain untouched, but you never know. Both seem to be crushing their respective industries at the moment. Brands like Peak will probably see more distribution. Their products are pretty k...

Re: Best thing I ever ate

OK, I'll bite ;) I too am a foodie, so this is a difficult one. I have quite a few, and lots of world travel certainly adds to the list. Toronto is also probably one of the most multi-cultural cities in North America, possibly the world, so is quite a good food place as well. In no particular order...

Re: Best thing I ever ate

Im glad to revisit this since its been ~8 years since my previous post. Best dish I've ever had was a goat curry from Chico Feo in Folly Beach SC. Even with all the travels and wonderful meals I've had over the years - this was the most memorable and flavorful dish I have experienced. I ate it consi...

Re: Outerwear / Footwear Workshops

Thanks for the links. These are good places to start and I've talked to a few of them, including Pensole for developing a prototyping area in house. I know its a stretch but my wishful thinking is that I can find a place that can offer a manufacturing quality/level workshop... Sew/tape a 3L rain jac...

Outerwear / Footwear Workshops

All - I'm looking for any recommendations on workshops / classes / continuing education related to fabrics and footwear. I know there are several fundamentals courses offered through NC State University for textiles, various sewing classes out there, and a mix of footwear workshops like the Shoe Sur...

Re: The Materials Show

I've been to both Portland and Wilmington - of you're going to travel to one I would highly suggest Portland. Its a great show for footwear materials and finding new partners. At minimum I make a day trip to the show in Wilmington every year - its about 1/3 the size of Portland with a much smaller g...

Re: Inspirational Design Shorts

Very cool - thanks for sharing. I definitely had one of these but was a Nokia guy at heart.

Easily one of the most iconic cellphones to date!

Never had one, I was a Sony Ericson guy at the time :-) but I always wanted one.

Re: Newly Released Work (All Product Types)

Pretty stoked for the (soft) launch of our new PRO Wading Boot. The power of LinkedIn connected me to the folks at Michelin and spawned an awesome relationship to develop a custom compound for our boot. Taking some cues from Tennis, Football, and Training footwear I incorporated a full PU cast vamp ...

Picked these up in Taiwan on my last trip over. Really digging the Zooms.

Re: NEW KICKS :: latest purchase

all black er'thing :-) How do you like those ARKKs? Missed this one! Sorry MD - ARKKs are alright, they're too long honestly... If I'm going to wear something similar I prefer Allbirds. Absolutely loving this recent pickup for a new pair of GTX boots that weight next to nothing... Great for Vermont...

Re: Softgoods - Marvelous Designer

Thanks for resurrecting this one! I'm not in a different role that is even more fashion centric. I may dabble in Clo3D and see what it can do
