Who wouldn't want to spend Sunday with Tim Gunn?
Tim Gunn doesn't balk at sharing his point of view, whether it's favorable (“Your clothes have beautiful construction details. There is a real voice here.”), controversial (“The fashion industry has an inability to accept real women and their size and shape.

Well researched article on the Golden Gate neighborhood in Oakland, CA.
This essay originally appeared in Boom: A Journal of California. In March 2011, after signing our names so many times that our wrists ached, my wife and I took into our weakened hands the keys to a modest wooden rectangle on a slightly larger rectangle of dirt in Oakland’s Golden Gate...
