They hate your shiny new boots. They hate them because they wish they were in them. #therewillbehaters

Get his look; Kris Yenbamroong, Chef

1. The Chains

"I don’t really think of myself as someone who wears a lot of jewelry. I’ll wear a couple rings, my necklaces. Thai gold is distinct in how bright and yellow it is, and it’s something everybody has at some point. Maybe it’s a rite of passage. I have a Buddha-relic icon from my grandma. I have a connection with her, and it’s sort of spiritual. It’s just one of those things that make me happy."

2. The Jeans

"There are a few brands that I feel comfortable revisiting all the time, and J.Crew is one of those. That’s where these jeans are from. I don’t dress like their catalogs, though I mix and match. The clothes fit me. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve become more aware of fit."

3. The Bomber

"This jacket is from Our Legacy. I have a shirt from there, too. Like a lot of the stuff I like to buy, it’s a classic. Bombers are timeless. I knew when I bought this, I would have the potential, five years from now, to rediscover it in my closet."

4. The Hair

"I don’t fuss with it too much. I use a Japanese matte styling wax called Gatsby. I’ll go to a Japanese market and buy sashimi and hair products."

5. The Frames

"I got these glasses ages ago from the Moscot; a store on the Lower East Side in New York. I’ve bought other pairs of glasses since, but I wear these 99.5 percent of the time. I like them so much that I got the same ones as shades."

6. The Tats

"When you’re thinking about making that leap from no tattoos to having one, names are a good bet. As soon as I turned 18, I got my grandfather’s name in Thai on my chest. I have between 30 and 40 I’ve lost count. I’ve gotten progressively better tattoos over the years, but my favorite ones are the jankiest: I even got a MOM one … drunkenly, at a tattoo shop in Vegas.”

7. The Watch

"When I started running my family’s restaurant in 2008, I worked a lot of hours and finally had disposable income. I went out and bought a vintage Rolex. This is a transitional model from the late seventies. It’s got an acrylic face instead of crystal and a jubilee band instead of an oyster band. It’s all scuffed up because I wear it every day."

8. The Boots

"Thees Red Wingboots are new. The pair before this A.P.C. black leather army boots are really worn out. I wore those every day for however many years. I like the idea of boots having felt the ground of many different countries. I think you need to live in your clothes and have them form to you."

Interview/Feature 157: When we interviewed Elle Luna in October 2013, she had recently left her day job to dive into painting full-time. The TGD alum has continued to make art and speak about her journey—and she’s written her first book due out this spring. Now, she’s working on an exciting project, and she wants you to get involved: What could you do with 100 days of making?

My Feature Friday today is this collection of celestial inspired watches from La Mer. Entitled “La Lune Fine Diamonds”, the collection consists of five watches named after Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, and Neptune. Sadly the Mercury one (second from the top) is no longer available, but the other four are! 

Venus

Jupiter

Saturn

Neptune

And if you want to shoot for the stars, you can always go for the Starry Night version (top of post). 

Now I really want someone to invent a watch not only inspired by the planets, but one that can tell the actual time of day on them too! Can someone please get on that?

Hickman’s long-term story will come to a head in Secret Wars #1, in which the Marvel Universe will merge with the Ultimate Marvel Universe and several other alternate versions of the Marvel Universe. The result of this merger will be a thing called Battleworld, and for the duration of the Secret Wars event, all stories will be set there, and deal with various versions of Marvel’s characters fighting for survival. Many of the worlds that will merge into Battleworld will be variations of classic Marvel stories and existing alternate timelines — Days of Future Past, Age of Apocalypse, Civil War, House of M — while some will bring in elements of non-comics continuity, like the X-Men animated series from the early ’90s.

Since the dawn of the Ultimate Universe I’ve always thought that it would overtake main continuity. Just one look at Ultimate Spider-Man and you’d say “this all makes more sense, and is much cleaner than the main continuity.” The Ultimate Universe had the benefit of hindsight. It already knew what worked and what didn’t and was able to take the best parts of long story arcs and use only the good parts (see: The Clone Saga in both main continuity, and Ultimate).

What I didn’t expect was this, a merger with destruction on both sides. A single Marvel Universe with all the best elements from each universe. It’s what DC did with the last Crisis and then 52 in the early 2000’s.

I didn’t expect Marvel to go that way, I always expected the main MU to just fade away. When I stopped reading comics Cap was dead, Magneto was powerless, Spider-Man was in the midst of a soft reboot and the Mutants were in shambles. It felt like the perfect time to sunset the universe, honestly.

Meanwhile the Ultimate Universe was going strong. I knew people who were jumping ship from main continuity to Ultimate. It all seemed so inevitable, I’m a little surprised it took this long.

“This is putting an endcap to decades of stories and starting a new era,” Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso said at a press conference announcing the event. “When you see the scope of the event, [you will] see what we’re willing to do. This is a place where we’re going to be bringing new pieces onto the board and taking old pieces off. You guys will be yelling and screaming, loving and hating in equal measure.”

According to Alonso and Executive Editor Tom Brevoort, Secret Wars has been in the works since at least 2011, and all of the major publishing events since Disney acquired Marvel in 2009 have been leading toward this eventual reboot of the publishing line.

All that said, I’m excited. And I’ve got some reading to do, I want to see how the Universe I read for 20 years falls apart.
