Art of Dressing

ABC of Men's Fashion by Hardy Amies:

An established trick in theatre design is to make a costume in a series of tones of the same colour. This is often more effective than two or more contrasting colours which can split up the effect instead of giving one big punch.

But to achieve the nonchalance which is absolutely necessary for a man, one article at least must not match. For instance, you can wear a dark blue suit and tie with a pale blue shirt and navy blue socks, but you must then have a patterned silk handkerchief say in dark red or a paisley design of green and brown; or you could stick to a blue handkerchief and have dark red socks.

Hardy Amies 对待男装很有意思的态度,男人在打扮中必须透出一定程度的漫不经心,切不可对衣服太过在乎。原文很简洁,但难译,我只能译得如下般啰嗦:

舞台设计中有一个惯用技巧,是把整套服装都做成同一种颜色,不同部分只有色调的区别。通常这样做比使用两三种强烈对比色更有效;对比色会使整体效果分散,无法汇聚成视觉冲击。

但男人对待着装绝不该太过认真,因此身上必须有至少一件服饰不匹配。比如说,你可以穿深蓝色西装和领带,配淡蓝色衬衫和藏青色袜子,但然后你就应该戴一条有暗红色花纹,或者棕绿相间佩斯利纹样的口袋巾;或者你可以戴蓝色口袋巾,但是配暗红色袜子。

Apple Store 中国十岁生日,我采访了离开的那些人

https://mp.weixin.qq.com/s/3CCHk7AjQ8swJ7KesyFJWA

为了十周年,我特意采访了几位从苹果离职的朋友,他们曾在苹果担任不同角色,有一线 SP,有 Genius,有经理甚至店长,从他们的角度去看苹果零售店在中国的十年。

值得一读。开始的调调也是熟悉的「苹果变了」,但结尾说到苹果顶住压力寻求改变,是亲历者才有的视角。

New Public DNS from Cloudflare: 1.1.1.1

https://blog.cloudflare.com/announcing-1111/

I used the free CDN service from Cloudflare to host this blog. They have a good record of privacy and security. Now they start to offer a new consumer DNS service to the public under the IP address 1.1.1.1 and 1.0.0.1.

There are a few public DNS services on the market today. The most popular ones are the 8.8.8.8 from Google and 208.67.222.222 from OpenDNS. In my experience, the Google one is normally not very fast, and in particular not available in China. The OpenDNS one is better, however with a unmemorable IP address. I am glad to see this new Cloudflare DNS. Currently, it seems to be the fastest public DNS service in the world.
