A Voyage into Carlo Rivetti’s Stone Island

A Voyage into Carlo Rivetti's Stone Island

Stone Island‘s deep roots date back to the 19th Century and current owner Carlo Rivetti looks to the 21st Century with much optimism while keeping the brand’s rich history in mind at all times. Stone Island’s A Voyage into Stone Island video series gives us the opportunity to go behind the scenes with Stone Island and see what goes into making the label’s outstanding products. The first video delivers a factory tour lead by Carlo himself and sets to reveal some of the top level skills that contribute to creating Stone Island garments and collections while the second video (thus far) hones in on the experimental dyeing facility and delivers insight into all the phases of the garment dyeing process.

The level of detail in which these videos go is unparalleled, folks. For anyone even remotely interested in the garment industry, these videos deliver some great knowledge from a man that is the helm of one of Italy’s finest brands.

7 ways to decode your girlfriend’s text message

Mobile Maven has a post up that every man should take a look at.  They’ve got 9 ways to decode your girlfriend’s text message.  Read it, study it, practice it.  If there’s one thing women hate, it’s when you don’t know what they’re thinking.  If you know she’s mad, and you ask if she’s mad, you’re likely to anger her more.

The unfortunate thing is that it’s more difficult to read a woman when you’re not in her presence.  Read below to figure out what she’s really saying.  We like the 9 ways, but we’re going to condense it a little.  Get your notepad ready:

1. Periods. Any time she writes a period at the end of the text (when the otherwise general lack of words would suffice to show that the thought is over) she’s one of two things: demanding, or pissed off. Probably at you. If you’re getting a lot of them, it’s a safe bet that you’re in trouble.

2. Exclamation Point! This is a universal sign of excitement, and it means she wants you to immediately picture her smiling and eager. Generally a good thing, unless she’s got energy to beat out the energizer bunny.

3. Question Mark? Obviously, questions need appropriate punctuation, especially in texts were there is no tone. Frequent question marks-especially when there isn’t really a question, like ‘We’ll meet up later?’ means she’s harboring some serious insecurities about your relationship.

4. Later. If she’s a buddy, ‘later’ is totally standard. If she’s your leading lady, ‘later’ is not good. Think about it-there’s ‘see you later’, ‘talk to you later’, and all sorts of ways of making plans in very casual ways, but she’s going out of her way to be brief and noncommittal. Not a good sign for you.
