Who are Mike and Chris?

Who are Mike and Chris? – Mike and chris? Sounds like a powerful male design duo. That is only the half truth. They are a very powerful design duo. But they are not old design school chums they are husband and wife. They launched their namesake label after their innovative hoodies created the demand for more. Their hoodies and outerwear in general are really. Cool enough to necessitate their own article someday. Today we will focus first on the mens spring/summer 2008.

I really think Mike and Chris are doing for men’s wear what Surface to Air was trying to do. The main difference is Mike and Chris are minimal without the need to be overtly macabre. These Bermuda shorts are so sleep and tailored you would expect them to be full length pants.


Bermuda’s like these are a welcomed change board / cargo shorts I see walking down the street everyday. The sweater is not so bad either. I like the neckline it not quite crew not quite v-neck.

 
I really like this deep v-neck sweater. The grey on grey stripe is a nice change from the typical white and black burglar stripe or the dreaded red and black Freddy Krueger stripe. This is more of a grandpa sweater, not threatening at all. The sleeves are a little longer than necessary allowing the wearer to wear the cuff as low or as high on the wrist / forearm as they would like. Yes this is a men’s sweater but I believe a woman, me, could rock it just as well.

 
Oh boy Mike and Chris you lost me! Not with though jeans though, those are cool. I saw a close up of these jeans and the pockets are different, more of a L shape than your regular pocket.

 
Really though whats up with the bright yellow suspenders? I’m not saying there aren’t guy out there who want to wear them but they kind of look corny especially paired up with the yellow frame glasses. The shirt looks like something out of Hot Topic. In fact I this whole look can be found much cheaper at Hot Topic.

 
I chose to comment on this vest because it actually changed my mind when I first saw it. I’m a habitual vest hater. I don’t hate vests are part of formal wear I typically just dislike vests that are intended to be worn alone such a ski vests and the like. This vest is very sharp though.

 
I don’t like the shirt underneath it, there definitely could have been a better choice. If you look closely you can see the pockets I was talking about in the paragraph above.

 
Speaking of a pockets this vest has a welt pocket on it, which always looks nice because the look of them alone implies the level of difficulty it took to construct this garment.

 
I was only lost on one look from this whole collection, that alone has to be some kind of record. It has been awhile since a new label has made such a big impression on me. Mike and Chris I loved your Men’s collection so much I am going to give your Women’s spring/ summer 2008 line a good look through.

 

 

Wood’nt it be nice?

Wood’nt it be nice? – Wooden accessories are hot for the summer of 2008. Now I know what your thinking, wood is only for hippie and or boho looks. That is simply untrue; this season wood can be worn with any look. Wooden accessories are made from predominately dark brown wood or at least the wood is all stained a similar dark color. Nevertheless the dark brown color acts as a neutral among the many bright colors of summer.


This wooden heart shaped pendant would be a delightful accompaniment to any summer frock. On top of our sweet wooden heart we have a smaller more abstract heart made from shell. The wood and shell combination will lend an air of natural harmony to your whole outfit.

Above we see another shell and wood combination necklace. This double strand necklace proves that wood has more versatility than you think. This necklace can be worn to add sophistication to a simple tank or to emphasize your bust line in a dress with a plunging neckline. There is hardly anything hippy about this necklace, you probably wouldn’t even know the beads are made from natural wood and shell if you didn’t get a closer look. A necklace such as this would be great for a wood skeptic.

Take a look at this funky painted and natural wooden beaded earring and bracelet set. These items can be purchased separately but they look best when together. The glowing yellow painted beads paired with the natural beads have a very warm feel. I can see this pretty little set worn with a graphic monokini, preferably one with a lot of yellow in the design. Come to think of it this set would go fantastic with the white and yellow polka dot mini dress from yesterday’s article.

I’m in love with this bangle. I need at least three of them. The gold and wood go so well together. If there is only one piece of wooden jewelry you can buy it should be a piece like this. This piece gives you the liberty to experience the wooden trend without going too far. You may not have other wooden pieces to pair with this but you will not need them because the gold half means you can wear as much gold as you like and you are good to go.

As the summer progresses more and more wooden accessories will become readily available. If there was nothing in this article that captured your fancy, just try to keep an open mind and be patient. Your wooden treasure is out there waiting for you. You just have to find it.

PCB using carbide drill holes machining tool with spiral groove is a complex shape

PCB

Through the stress controlled cyclic triaxial tests of Zhanjiang steel sea beach, sea product muddy soil in plain area of earthquake subsidence characteristics, fully considering the influence of soil confining pressure and consolidation ratio and cyclic stress ratio of the size of residual strain in, get the residual strain of soft clay with vibration frequency, confining pressure and consolidation ratio and cyclic stress ratio and change the rules.

Results found coupling effects of different factors, the development of residual strain mainly for the attenuation curve and failure type curve can be respectively with logarithmic curve model and index curve model to predict, the regional earthquake construction provides a valuable reference.
PCB using carbide drill holes machining tool with spiral groove is a complex shape, from the traditional Hemp flowers derived from drilling. The structural parameters of the micro drilling are closely related to the cutting performance of the cutting edge, and the interaction and mutual influence of these parameters are interrelated.

The by defining the rotation matrix established global coordinates of micro drill flank mathematical model, the mathematical expression of the vector deduced the corresponding chisel edge angle and cutting edge, quantitative analysis of the structural parameters affect the cutting performance, draw relevant conclusions, which for the micro drilling engineering to provide a theoretical basis for design.
In recent years, the study on the disaster of the theory and methods of anthropology has become more and more important. Anthropology as three factors: the social science will be a disaster in the intersection of the environmental, biological and social culture into the category of thinking, and the formation of ‘Archaeology and history’ and ‘political ecology, social culture and behavior’ and ‘application and practice of’ several paradigms in the study.

These paradigms are related to each other, and have drawn the experience of disaster research in other disciplines, and have made a unique contribution to the disaster research in the view of the whole field of Anthropology and the method of the micro ethnographic fieldwork.
