26 days: Bad Blood and Ill-Fitting Suits
Good morning all, and a good yontif to those celebrating. I’m one coffee down and have been working since 6 am, which means my fasting isn’t going exactly as planned. With that said, let’s get to our insane world and all the creatures that inhabit it.
When I was in my start-up days, I worked for a time across the street from where One King’s Lane inhabited an entire floor of an old San Francisco building. In my memory, the furniture flash sale site had a glorious post-modern lobby with white shag carpets and Palm Springs-appropriate lighting fixtures - you can see 2012 pictures from their NYC office on Business Insider. I remember reading about one of their sky-high funding rounds, and feeling the envy and melancholy so specific to a lottery non-winning San Francisco tech worker. But it seems that reality may be settling down on San Francisco like the comical fog that freezes so many July tourists: the company, having taken in $225 million in funding and once valued at $800 million, was purchased by Broad City favorite Bed Bath & Beyond for $12 million.
If ever an article was written for my tailoring-aware suit-wearing district attorney husband and his colleagues: What Is Up With Trump's Ill-Fitting Suits? A World-Famous London Bespoke Tailor Explains.
Catherine Rampell compiled a "running list of excuses for Donald Trump’s “grab them by the p—y” comments.”
