Jordan’s “I’m Back” Fax Set the World on Fire 20 Years Ago

mj-release-e1426698727445

 

20 years ago Jordan made a huge media splash by just saying two words – “I’m back.” Even more important was how they were said…Via Fax. In our instantaneous world of Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook this looks and sounds prehistoric. This led the way for one of the most spectacular sports stories in recent history. After his return Jordan had to wear 45 for the next 22 games, as he decided to retire his number 23. But after Nick Anderson of the Orlando Magic stole the ball from Jordan (which ultimately lead to a Bulls lose) in Game 1 of the 1995 East Conference Final with 10 seconds left, Anderson told the press “Number 45 is not number 23,I couldn’t have done that to number 23.” Apparently Jordan agreed, and did his best Clark Kent/Superman impression when he removed his warm-ups just before the start of Game 2 to reveal “the 23.” MJ dropped 38 points that game and even though the Bulls lost the series MJ went on to average 31 ppg. 3 more titles later and the rest is well…history.

Cornell West and His Uniform

Great piece (except for the epileptic camera man, seriously watch) about a man and his daily uniform: black suit, white shirt, black tie, and scarf. I love how he he explains his style. Dr. West has swag.

The Military Tuck – How to Prevent Your Shirts From Bunching

Ever wanted to figure out how to stop your nice shirts from blousing and bunching up. You have three options, buy slim fit shirts, get your shirts tailored, or use the military tuck.This method  is to take the excess fabric from the front and back of the shirt and hide it in the side-seams. Here a how to from agoodman.com.au

Steps:

  1. Unbutton pants and place the base of your shirt neatly downward. Your shirt should not be scrunched into your pants as they’ll easily come untucked.
  2. Pinch the shirt at the side-seams and pull tight to collect the excess fabric.
  3. Fold this excess fabric backwards. You want both back and front of your shirt to sit flush against your body; no bunching (you haven’t pinched enough fabric) nor pulling (you’ve pinched too much fabric).
  4. Button your pants up, tightly securing the folds against your body.
  5. Adjust if necessary to neaten the shirt.

It helps to think of this method as placing your pants over your shirt, rather than tucking your shirt into your pants. Obviously, this technique only works for shirts that mostly fit, and just have some excess fabric in the body. If the shirt is a size (or more) too large, this method won’t work and it will need to be altered by a tailor to make it fit correctly. From A Goodman
