Tiffany Haddish Gets All Ugly Face Over Tyler Perry During Laugh Factory Routine [Video]

(Photo credit: PR Photos)

According to Anita Bennett’s UrbanHollywood411, funny woman Tiffany Haddish not only brought the house down Saturday night at the Laugh Factory in Los Angeles with laughter, but ended up breaking down in tears herself.

During her set at the famous Sunset Strip comedy club, Haddish joked about being thrifty, taking a sabbatical from sex, receiving a car from Tyler Perry and being gifted the wardrobe from her upcoming film, Night School, with Kevin Hart.

Haddish warned fans they’ll see the outfits over and over, because she believes in recycling.

She also joked about her role in Perry’s upcoming comedy, Nobody’s Fool. She said the director’s rapid-fire production method caught her off guard.

“We shot that whole movie in ten days. I don’t know if it’s gone be any good,” she said to laughter.

“I don’t know if this sh–’s gone be funny. I don’t know what the continuity is gonna look like,” she joked. “I don’t know if in one scene, I’m gonna have three hairdos. I don’t know.”

Then someone in the audience yelled, “Tell us about the car!”

ENTERTAINMENT UPDATE:

4th of July Sales For Men – J. Crew Factory free shipping & double dipping, 20% off Goodfellow & Co., & More

IT’S NOT JUST A HANDFUL. IT’S A HOEDOWN.

hoedownin

Why hoedown? Too much for a handful. Enjoy the long weekend fellas… that is, if you’re lucky enough to get some time off.

 

J.C.F.: 50% off Most Everything + Extra 20% off & Free Ship w/ SUPERSTAR

J. Crew Factory

What was an extra 15% off to start the week has now jumped to an additional 20% off AND you get free shipping too. Suits & Sportcoats aren’t getting the cut, but it seems like the rest of J. Crew Factory’s basics are in fact getting this half off PLUS an additional 20% off that sale price. UPDATE: Sorry fellas, looks like the shorts aren’t getting the extra 20% off cut. But they are shipping for free.

 

Spier and Mackay: 15% off all regular priced suits/sportcoats/trousers w/ JULY4th

One of the best values in suits and sportcoats just got even better. Yes, sizes are scattered since it’s Spier, but it’s worth a look if you’re in the market for a new suit or sportcoat. Suits with the code now start at $ 279, and sportcoats now start at $ 169. Not bad for half canvas and bemberg linings. Runs clear through Sunday July 8th. Head here for a review of their slim fit, and here for a review of the contemporary fit.

 

Massdrop (or Amazon) Orient Mako II – $ 129.99

Orient Mako II

Massdrop has the Hacking and Hand Winding Orient Mako II diver for $ 129.99 right now… but so does Amazon. And with Amazon, it ships immediately (no waiting for the pre-order) AND it’s not final sale. Sold direct by Amazon at post time too. So… yeah. You’ll want to go with Amazon over Massdrop this time for sure.

 

GAP: 40% off Everything w/ GO4th + Extra 10% off & Free Ship w/ MOREFUN

GAP

Appears to be exclusion free? I believe? Just a reminder about the math. There are two codes here, but 40% off and then an additional 10% off does NOT equal 50% off. That extra 10% comes off the marked down price. So, if your purchase is $ 100, that’s 100 x .6 = $ 60, and then $ 60 x .9 = $ 54. Close to 50% off, but not quite.

 

J. Crew: 30% off Select Styles w/ ALLSTARExtra 20% off Select w/ THESKIMM

J. Crew

In case you missed it Sunday. There’s also a twenty dollar off $ 100 code JCSM18 floating about, but you can only use two codes at a time. They should stack though, depending on exclusions. More info over here.

 

Massdrop: Junghans Max Bill Auto. Watch – $ 729.99 FINAL

Junghans Max Bill Auto. Watch

That’s a lot of cash to drop on a wrist watch. But? Seems like some of you fellas are down with that (as far as threads and the social media channels indicate). Made in Germany. Automatic movement that hacks and hand winds. Timeless Bauhaus looks. 38 mm in diameter and 40mm from lug to lug. Convex hard plexiglass crystal with SICRALAN coating. Final sale though, being that it’s Massdrop.

 

Target: 20% off Clothes w/ JULY4

Target

Just a warning. Goodfellow & Co seems to fit a little wonky for some guys. There can be quite a gap between sizes. So, lucky you if it fits great off the rack. Code expires at the end of the day on Wednesday.

 

Todd Snyder: Further additions/reductions to Sale & Clearance

Todd Snyder

Just a warning… sizes are scattered at best. And in the clearance section there’s a few final sale items. So be careful with those. No returns for the final sale stuff.

 

Todd Snyder Part Deux: New Timex Marlin Blackout – $ 199

Timex Marlin Blackout

Not on sale and almost certainly gonna sell out. Still tiny. Still hand wound. Head here for a review of the silver version. Big thanks to Aaron K for the tip!

 

Brooks Bros: Up to 40% off Select Spring & Summer Styles

Brooks Brothers

Great for those of us who love Brooks Brothers… yet don’t usually operate on a Brooks Brothers budget. Personally, I’m a big fan of their Regent fit sportcoats. Especially when on double sale like this.

 

Huckberry: Astorflex Chelsea Boots in Sabbia (neutral) or Cuoio – $ 90 ($ 180)

Astorflex Chelsea

Still half off. Still made in Italy, still super comfortable, still shipping and returning for free. And still quite a few sizes left.

 

Allen Edmonds: 40% off Select Bourbon & Merlot

Allen Edmonds

Still going on. Still a hell of a deal. Huge fan of the Allen Edmonds Merlot shade around these parts (see a full How to Wear it for their Merlot McAllisters here). Also know that the Bourbon shade can be a bit divisive. Some people LOVE it. Some think it can look a little striped and/or greenish in some lights. Anyway, $ 249 is a hell of a price for timeless Allen Edmonds first quality shoes. Deal runs clear through July 22nd.

 

UNIQLO: Select 4th of July Deals & Free Shipping No Min!

UNIQLO

Feels like it’s a more extensive promotions section for the 4th of July weekend. And? Lots of their warm weather stuff is on sale. Like airism t-shirts and boxer briefs. They’re an inexpensive choice for many.

 

Cole Haan: Extra 40% off Sale Items w/ EXTRA40

Cole Haan

Lots of snobs like to rag on Cole Haan, but many guys have had some measure of success with the brand. Is full price too steep? Of course. But this stuff is already on sale AND its getting an extra 40% off. So, not bad. Careful though… lots of final sale here. No returns or exchanges on that stuff. So click wisely.

 

Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale is Coming

Nordstrom

Another reminder before you get sloshed on cheap beer and go hog wild with your credit card this weekend. Nordstrom’s Anniversary sale is easily one of, if not the most anticipated sale of the year. Head here for what it looked like last year. If you’re a Nordstrom card-member, you get early access from July 12th – 19th. The sale goes live to the general public on the 20th. And yes, we’ll have our favorites from the sale ready to go for you to peruse.

Monday Sales Tripod – Allen Edmonds 1st Quality for $249, J. Crew Factory Mega Clearance, & More

The Thursday Handfuls are great, but what if Monday (or Tuesday) rolls around and there are a few sales that can’t wait til the weekend? You’ll find three of the best, with a few picks from each, to start the week below.

 

#1. Allen Edmonds: $ 176 off Select Bourbon & Merlot

Huge fan of the Allen Edmonds Merlot shade around these parts (see a full How to Wear it for their Merlot McAllisters here.) Also know that the Bourbon shade can be a bit divisive. Some people LOVE it. Some think it can look a little striped looking and/or greenish in some lights. Anyway, $ 249 is a hell of a price for timeless Allen Edmonds first quality shoes. Deal runs clear through July 22nd.

 

#2. J.C.F.: 60% off Select + Extra 50% off Clearance w/ TOOCOOL

Got that? Two different offers here. The flex-chino blazer steal alert from Sunday is part of the clearance deal. But don’t forget the 60% off stuff too. Lots to look at here.

 

#3. Ledbury: 30% – 50% off Select Items Summer Sale

Is it still spendy? Yes. But it’s Ledbury. Really, really nice fabrics. Terrific construction. Great collars on their shirts. And speaking of their shirts, all of their shirts come with that slightly lowered 2nd button. Perfect for going sans-tie, and if any time is sans-tie-time, it’s summertime.

 

BONUS  Massdrop: Last Day for Spier & Mackay Suits – $ 299 FINAL

These are NOT their basic Aussie wools (which are great in their own right.) These are Italian milled, Super 120s wool fabrics. Still lined with Bemberg. Still half-canvas. Still offered in either slim or contemporary fits. Available in either navy, medium gray, or charcoal. Drop ends today though.

J Crew Factory Jumps in the Tech Polo Ring, USA Made Dress Shoes, & More – The Thurs. Men’s Sales Handful

Sales that deserve some attention heading into the weekend or a bit earlier. Might not be some massive once a year event, but still worth a look. Those are what make up these handfuls. Five of the better sales, one for each finger, are below, plus bonus sales if need be. Included are a few picks worth pointing out. 

 

J. Crew Factory: 50% off (suiting excluded) + New Arrivals

J. Crew Factory

What have we here? “Performance” polos from J. Crew Factory? Ordered. And don’t worry, the annual polo palooza is fast approaching. Last year wasn’t the best polo crop. There are some good ones this year. Fingers crossed these make the list as a winner.

 

Brooks Bros: $ 100 off $ 300, $ 200 off $ 500 w/ SP18BC

Brooks Brothers

See what we’re doing here? We’re using socks from the sale section (at post time this is working) to trip the $ 300 threshold. At $ 300, use the $ 100 off $ 300 code SP18BC and you end up with Goodyear Welted, made in the USA shoes for just north of $ 200. Not bad being that they aren’t 2nds quality.

 

Target: Goodfellow & Co. Oxford Cloth Pants – $ 24.99

Target: Goodfellow & Co. Oxford Cloth Pants

So the site says these things are “poplin” but… it sure doesn’t look like it. Big thanks to Ryan N. for the tip who saw these in person, in store. Available in either slim or straight fit. Could be perfect for those hot summer days. Also, I don’t know what the “printed” distinction means on these pants. They just look like they’re heathered/chambray-ish/oxford cloth-y. Beats me.

 

 Allen Edmonds Anniversary Sale ends MONDAY

Allen Edmonds

How’d tax day shake down for you. Good? Got some money back? Y’know, that’s actually not good. But. I totally understand how it makes one feel. Anyway, sock that return away in the emergency fund. But if you just can’t stand it, there’s the big AE sale.

 

Massdrop: Seiko SKX – $ 169.99 FINAL

Seiko SKX

Well look what’s back on Massdrop. It’s worth noting that while $ 169.99 is a fine price for a Seiko 007 or 009, they’re final sale. If you want the ability to return the thing, head over to Amazon or JomashopThey’ve got much of the SKX series for $ 179.99. BUT… and this is a big difference from most Massdrop products, THIS time Massdrop actually has these in stock. No waiting. Ships in 2-3 days.

 

BONUS  Huckberry: LeviMoon is back!!! – $ 239.98 ($ 289)

LeviMoon Lamp

Good God that’s a lot of money ($ 240!!) for what amounts to a small lamp (if that, depending on how much light it casts). But… good grief I want one. Levitates thanks to magic. Or, magnets. Magic or magnets. I dunno. I didn’t major in the science.

FASHION DEAL UPDATE:

J. Crew Factory 50% off Everything No Exclusions

JCF: 50% off + Extra 50% off clearance w/ GOODIES

Good grief it’s almost April. Somewhere between the New Year and Valentine’s Day and 8,000 unexpected late round with a very angry old man winter, we’ve almost made it to April. Heck, Opening Day for baseball is tomorrow. Who knew?

All that progress through the calendar means some of us will be spending some time shifting our closests from winter to spring very soon. And J. Crew Factory appears to be hoping you’re looking to make some additions to said closet. A flat 50% off across the board, with no exclusions for once. Even suiting is getting the cut. Plus, there are greater discounts on select items throughout their inventory. Look for those items marked “hidden deal” of cuts bigger than half off. Big thanks to Paul K. and Adam M. for the tips!

 

Thompson Fit Suits in Worsted or Voyager Wool – $ 218

JCF Thompson Fit Suits

Normally these things sit at $ 299, so for $ 218? That’s a really nice deal. Yes they’re fused, but they look darn good for a $ 200ish suit. And with reasonable care (and a good fit… don’t get pants that are skin tight since those will wear out super fast) a fused, all wool suit should treat those who don’t wear suits all that often pretty well. Review of the Voyager suit can be found here. Lots of wheelhouse colors to pick from, and a few brighter options for spring.

 

Thompson Unconstructed Linen Blazer – $ 89.00

100% linen exterior, completely unlined back, and cut in their trim but not overly tight Thompson silhouette. Dual vents in the rear. Easy to tailor non functioning cuff buttons. Want suggestions on how to wear something like this? Head here for outfit ideas.

 

Sunwashed Garment Dyed Polos – $ 21.00

JCF Sunwashed Garment Dyed Polos

Usually goes for closer to $ 30. Big fan of the slight variations in shading that comes with the garment dying process. Inexpensive and well reviewed. Not the sharpest polo you’ll have on hand, but great for every day wear when a t-shirt seems too sloppy.

 

Thompson Fit Linen Suit Jacket & Pant – $ 178

Under $ 200 for a summer suit? Not bad. Available in either the grey shown here, or a medium blue. Jacket is lined in poly, and while I can’t tell from the images, it might be fully lined. Which sorta defeats the purpose of a linen suit, but, if you don’t run overly warm, it could still be a good spring/summer option.

 

Hidden Deal: Slim Washed Poplin Button Down – $ 19.95 

A basic, but one plenty of us lean on quite often. Sometimes you just need a white button down shirt. Not a thicker oxford cloth. A smoother poplin. And for under twenty bucks. Ta-da. Here it is.

 

Cotton/Nylon/Merino Striped henley hoodie – $ 44

Not a huge fan of hoodies around these parts, but we might have an exception here. Big fan of the henley detail, that beach-y color palate, and the stripes. Plus it has a bit of wool in there for texture and ventilation? Perfect (mind you, I don’t know how much wool there is in the mix.)

 

Hidden Deal: Cotton Nylon Field Jacket – $ 44.95

Cotton Nylon Field Jacket

Normally $ 74 when half off, this thing is discounted significantly more as one of their “hidden deals.” A casual basic that looks pretty well executed from here. Cotton/Nylon blend fabric should look and feel more like cotton than poly, while also doing a good job of keeping the rain from soaking in. Like the looks of those utility style pants? Here they are.

 

Poly/Cotton Walker Vest in Navy or Black – $ 39.50

Poly/Cotton Walker Vest in Navy or Black

I’ve never quite understood the hate that vests seem to get from some corners of the men’s style community. They’re awfully functional. Keeps your core warm while allowing your pits to breathe. What’s wrong with that? Also, the blend of cotton and poly, as well as the not overly puffed insulation, keeps these things from looking like life preservers.

 

Thompson Fit Unconstructed Barely There Linen Sportcoat – $ 79

J. Crew Factory Barely There Linen Sportcoat

Almost more shirt-like than sportcoat-like. JCF has done these before. And this year’s version is no different in terms of barely-there weight and shirt-like construction. For the dudes who run real hot, but still like to wear a sportcoat from time to time.

 

Oxford Cloth Pants in Straight or Slim – $ 32.00

J.C.F. Oxford Cloth Pants

One of the best bargains in lightweight, comfortable, spring and summer pants. Oxford cloth is nice and airy. Not super thick or stiff. Available in slim or straight fits.

 

Thompson Linen/Cotton Suit Jacket & Pant in Windowpane – $ 198

Dark in shade but bold in color. Takes some style onions to pull off as a suit, so, perhaps maybe warm up to THAT much pattern by wearing the jacket and pants separately with other items? See the image at the top of the post. That jacket should look dynamite with jeans or chinos.

 

SLIM Linen Button Down Shirts – $ 29.50

SLIM Linen Button Down Shirts

Just under thirty for a well reviewed, breathable, true slim fit shirt for the coming heat waves. Lots of colors to pick from.

 

Washed Leather Belts – $ 19.50

JCF Washed Leather Belts

I have this thing (the lighter one). I like this thing. A basic, but something that walks the line between a chunky casual belt, and a slimmer more dressed up belt. Still casual though. 1.25″ wide. Also available in a lighter brown, but the reviews have said that it’s more bright/lighter in person. Which, if it’s the same leather that’s used on the belt that I have from them, then yes, it’ll be closer to AE’s walnut shade.

 

Lightweight Chinos in Slim, Straight, or Athletic Fit – $ 29.50

JCF Lightweight Chinos

Huge fan of these things, even for year round use. Noticeably lighter in weight without being flimsy. They are very much NOT a stiff, thick chino pant. Plus, when it gets hot? They’ll be very, VERY nice to have on hand. The difference between these and standard chinos is tangible.

 

SLIM Fit Cotton Cable Fisherman Sweater – $ 47.50

J. Crew Factory SLIM Fit Cotton Cable Fisherman Sweater | Dappered.com

It really is slimmer than your average fisherman style sweater. As long as you make sure you’ve got the “slim” tab selected. Washable. Cut close enough to the body that if you don’t have a gut, you don’t get the classic fit sweater roll around the middle (or, at least not much of one). Whether you ever cast a net (or a line) here is irrelevant. Size shown above is a medium on 5’10” / 185.

 

Thompson Fit Flex Chino Blazer – $ 84

Thompson Fit Flex Chino Blazer

Because it’s that good. Full review here.

This 50% off deal at J. Crew Factory is set to expire on Monday 4/2/18.

New J. Crew Factory Arrivals, Massdrop Watches, & More – The Thurs. Men’s Sales Handful

Sales that deserve some attention heading into the weekend or a bit earlier. Might not be some massive once a year event, but still worth a look. Those are what make up these handfuls. Five of the better sales, one for each finger, are below, plus bonus sales if need be. Included are a few picks worth pointing out. 

 

Allen Edmonds Shoebank: Liverpool & 5th Ave for $ 195

Allen Edmonds

Huge thanks to James W. for sending in the style tip here. Liverpool 2nds and 5th Ave 2nds for under two hundred bucks? That’s awfully good. Especially for the Liverpool chelseas. Fingers crossed yours come with hardly a blemish to em. I have a pair of Liverpool 2nds, and I lucked out on mine. Couldn’t find the defect. Remember, there’s a $ 10 re stocking fee if you return any factory 2nd shoes.

 

J. Crew Factory: Up to 50% off New Arrivals

J. Crew Factory

First, most of you guys know how this works. J. Crew Factory releases a bunch of new arrivals, and then we wait. Discounts aren’t usually great from the jump. So, since it’s still February and this is Spring stuff, holding off could save you some dough. And second, two observations:

  1. Those shirts look… short, don’t they? Are they going for the untucked look here? And are they ACTUALLY shorter, or did they just use taller models? Info doesn’t say.
  2. Good on JCF to make a cheaper version of the hugely popular “deep water” unconstructed linen cotton blazer from big brother J. Crew. That’s certainly worth investigating for our upcoming best spring/summer sportcoats & blazers post.

 

Massdrop.: Victorinox Auto – $ 249.99 FINAL | Glycine Combat Sub – $ 379.99 FINAL

Victorinox & Glycine Massdrop

I know that most people are gonna gravitate towards the Glycine… but that price on the Victorinox is crazy. Even if you’re not a stainless steel bracelet kinda dude, and want to rip the thing off and put it on a leather strap (which it’d look dynamite on). If memory serves, last time it hit Massdrop that thing was $ 280. Sapphire crystal, water resistant to 100m, and it has an exhibition caseback? Not bad for $ 250. But, as always, it’s final sale.

 

DSW: 30% off Boots w/ BOOTS30

DSW Boots

Some exclusions, but they don’t look like many of these brands would apply: (Excludes Birkenstock, Brooks, Converse, Keen, Nike, Rainbow, Sorel, UGG, and Under Armour products).

 

B.R.: 40% off $ 200+ w/ BRFRESH (no BR merch exclusions)

Banana Republic

A high threshold, but not a bad deal considering there’s no exclusions once you get there. And that new basketweave cotton blazer, unlined in the back too, sure looks like it has potential. More picks that should trip this threshold can be found over here.

 

BONUS: A.E. Clearance: Those Higgins Mills are still there

Allen Edmonds Higgins Mill Boot | Dappered.com

Remember when I said (or wrote) “Don’t expect these to last long” ??? Right. Well, they’re lasting surprisingly long. Heck, there even seems to have been an additional restock of the natural CXL. So, I was loud wrong, but it’s still worth another mention in case you’re looking to invest in some really nice American Made boots.

BR Extra 50% off Sale Items, Extra 50% off J. Crew Factory Clearance, & More – The Thurs. Men’s Sales Handful

Sales that deserve some attention heading into the weekend or a bit earlier. Might not be some massive once a year event, but still worth a look. Those are what make up these handfuls. Five of the better sales, one for each finger, are below, plus bonus sales if need be. Included are a few picks worth pointing out. 

 

B.R.: Extra 50% off Sale Items (no code needed)

Banana Republic

No code needed here, and I do believe cardmembers STILL get an extra 10% off with BRCARD at checkout. Sale section isn’t overflowing, but there’s still some really good stuff in there. That’s not a bad price for White Oak Selvedge, especially considering they’re about to close down. Full review of those Goodyear Welted Spanish made wingtips can be found here.

 

J.C.F.: Extra 50% off Clearance Items w/ FIFTY

J Crew Factory

Looks like plenty of their fall collection has wandered its way into the clearance area. Extra 50% off with that FIFTY code. But, it’s still clearance, so sizes and color selection are scattered. Don’t expect stuff to stick around.

 

EXPRESS: 50% Off Everything + Free Shipping no min.

Express

EXPRESS is a little low in stock on some items. They got hammered pretty good on Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and have been running solid promos ever since. So, sizes might be scattered. Still nice to see a blanket 50% off though.

 

Bonobos: Extra 30% off Sale Items w/ HOHOHO

Bonobos

Extended. One. Last. Day. And it really has been one of the better deals Bonobos has run in a while. Not only is it a decent discount at 30% off, we’re talking about already marked down items here. So, those of us with tighter style budgets can actually play along a bit, depending on the piece we’re shooting for. That, and their sale section isn’t totally decimated. A solid selection is lurking in there.

 

Brooks Bros: Extra 25% off Clearance + Stackable Deals

Brooks Brothers

Just a reminder, since the extra 25% off clearance items ends today (12/21), you may have to hop to it if you’ll be using that extra discount on top of the following:

  1. $ 200 off $ 600 w/ BC17DC (excludes Red Fleece items)
  2. You can get a free $ 25 e-gift card with each purchase of a $ 150 e-gift card.

Got it? Good. More picks here. Prices above reflect the max discount and the usage of those “free” $ 25 gift cards when applicable.

Exploited and Endangered: Female Factory Workers in Vietnam Open Up About Their Work Conditions

45 women in Vietnam divulged the harsh and inhumane factory conditions they face at Samsung plants in a landmark report conducted by IPEN, a Sweden-based organization dedicated to the elimination of environmental toxins, and the Hanoi-based Research Centre for Gender, Family and Environment in Development (CGFED).

Lunch time at Samsung Vietnam. (SOURCE)

Factory workers spend, on average, 8 to 12 hours a day on their feet, and often rotate between night and day shifts—resulting in persistent joint pain and fatigue. According to women’s testimonies, employees frequently succumb to nose bleeds, dizziness and stomach aches. The women surveyed also reported an alarming prevalence of miscarriages amongst factory employees, and suspect overtaxing may be the culprit—pregnant employees often refuse breaks for fear of remunerative wage deductions.

Samsung has been subjected to increased scrutiny in recent years for suspected dangerous working conditions in its assembly plants. An advocacy group has compiled over 200 counts of terminal illness in former Samsung plant employees—the most common being leukemia, lupus, lymphoma and multiple sclerosis—and a 2016 investigation led by the Associated Press found that South Korean authorities had facilitated the withholding of information about chemical exposure at Samsung chip and display factories, effectively preventing employees from seeking recourse for occupational illness.

Just last month, the South Korean Supreme Court overturned a ruling denying the family of Lee Yoon-Jung, who worked at a Samsung plant for six years and succumbed to a fatally aggressive brain tumor at the age of 32, compensation for occupational disease. Lim Ja-woon, the lawyer representing the Lee family, cited 27 other instances of brain tumors in former Samsung Electronics employees in his litigation, indicating excessive exposure to harmful chemicals as the catalyst for tumor growth. Many other former factory workers and families have filed similar lawsuits demanding occupational disease and bereavement compensations.

Politicians and legislators largely disregard the rights of workers in the electrical industries, and employees are discouraged from discussing working conditions on the pretense of “protecting trade secrets.” According to Joe DiGangi, Ph.D., IPEN’s Senior Science and Technology advisor, “the lives and rights of workers in the electronics industry have been neglected in research and policy.” Women face the consequences of this neglect most profoundly;  80 percent of Samsung’s 100,000 factory employees are women.

In a 2009 UN convention, over 100 international administrations reached an agreement definitively classifying hazardous chemicals in electronics as a global emerging policy issue. The agreement, defined as the Strategic Approach to International Chemicals Management, set a precedent as the first true directive to combat occupational disease in electronic factories, commissioning a team of experts to outline specific measures for addressing the safe handling of hazardous materials in in all facets of production.

According to Pham Thi Minh Hang, a representative of CGFED, the IPEN report denotes a need for “comprehensive regulations […] that ensure worker safety in the electronics industry, including regulations relating to chemicals, electromagnetic fields, radioactivity, shift work and other relevant potential harms. Exposure limit values should be protective of the most vulnerable populations, which include women of child-bearing age, and should provide equal protection in the workplace and the community.” Hang and her fellow contributors are calling for a demonstrable change to factory protocol—including the disclosure of industrial chemical use in plants, and the adoption of more thorough safety guidelines.

Despite Samsung’s fervent dismissal of the claims in the report, Vietnam’s Ministry of Labor and the International Labor Organization in Hanoi are responding to the claims of the women in the survey, launching an investigation into working conditions at both of the electronic giant’s plants.

For DiGangi, the investigation is long overdue. “Companies make a lot of money in Vietnam,” he said, “but their profit rests on the tired shoulders of the female-majority workforce.”

Gilt City J. Crew Factory Voucher, USA Made Boots, & More – The Thurs. Men’s Sales Handful

Sales that deserve some attention heading into the weekend or a bit earlier. Might not be some massive once a year event, but still worth a look. Those are what make up these handfuls. Five of the better sales, one for each finger, are below, plus bonus sales if need be. Included are a few picks worth pointing out. 

 

Gilt City: J.Crew Factory Extra 35% Off In-Store or Online

J. Crew Factory

Most of you fellas know how this works, but, in case you don’t, here’s a crash course. Sign up for gilt or gilt city (or, login). Click the “RSVP” button on the J. Crew Factory offer page. Wait (sometimes a few minutes, sometimes an hour+). You’ll get an email, for free, with a one time use extra 35% offer code in there. The “cost” to you is that you’re now on Gilt’s email list (but, you can unsubscribe like any email list if you so choose). Vouchers have to be used by the end of Tuesday, 9/12. Not valid on men’s suiting, of course. Nor is it valid on cashmere, “The Score” items, or 3rd party merchandise. But it should work on their blue tweed sportcoat. No elbow patches this year, so, that’s a plus for many of you. And $ 35 for that cotton seedstitch shawl collar? Yes please.

 

Massdrop: Thorogood Boots – $ 226.99 FINAL | Seiko Turtle – $ 229.99 FINAL

Thorogood & Seiko

Massdrop has been on a nice little roll lately. They’ve been cranking out some consistently tempting products at a good clip. The only issue? They’re all final sale. And that stinks. Thorogood boots are made in Wisconsin out of Horween Chromexcel leather. That Seiko Turtle? Gonna be tough to beat that price. Love the shape of the case too. Very substantial feeling. Automatic, hacks and hand winds. Made our best automatic watches under $ 400 feature a while back.

 

Spier & Mackay: New Outerwear Line

Spier & Mackay

Spier & Mackay is jumping into outerwear, eh? And what they’re offering looks mighty fine. Remember, prices on their site are listed in Canadian Dollars. So, it’s gonna cost US customers less thanks to the exchange rate. Big fan of them using more precise chest sizing instead of the ball park S/M/L that many other brands use. This is a pre-order, so, expect the items to start shipping mid September. Charcoal, Navy, and Black are available for all three styles. Camel is also available in the topcoat.

 

Huckberry: 25% off Criquet Polos – $ 59.98 – $ 64.98 ($ 79-$ 84)

Criquet polos

Not your average polo shirt. A deeper, more substantial placket. Flap pocket at the chest. Either slim or standard fit. And? Collar stays for the shirt collar. That’s right, collar stays on a polo. Certainly looks better in person than a standard cheap polo, but even on sale, they can seem a little spendy.

 

DSW: $ 10 off $ 25, $ 20 off $ 99, $ 40 off $ 199 w/ AUGUST2017

DSW Boots & Shoes

Interesting code, being that it’s September. (Word is it expires 9/10?) Anyway, some deals to be had for sure if you like DSW’s house brand lines. Aston Grey has always been a nice budget brand. You can check out a full review of those chukkas right here.

 

BONUS: J. Crew: New Additions to Sale Section

J. Crew

So this is… maybe something. There’s a bunch of new arrivals to their sale section, and while they aren’t running an extra 30% or 40% off sale items code right now, some (not all) of the items are curiously low in price. Maybe a new pricing strategy for J. Crew now that Mickey Drexler has exited? Still, most of us will sit tight and wait for an extra 30%-40% off sale items code.

 

Also worth a mention:

  • Nordstrom: Their summer clearance event is still going on. Picks here.
  • GAP: 40% off men’s & women’s styles w/ FORYOU (exclusions apply of course)

This Couple Loves Cheesecake Factory So Much They Took Engagement Pics There

At the beginning of their relationship, couple Nikki-Lee Flowerree and Tommy Redding spent many a date night at one of their favorite restaurants: The Cheesecake Factory

“I’m 99 percent sure it’s where we had our first date,” Nikki-Lee told The Huffington Post.

So when it came time to take their engagement photos on March 19 they headed over to their local Cheesecake Factory in San Diego’s Seaport District for a shoot with photog Jessica McGehee of Reflecting Grace Photography

The Cheesecake Factory is known for its extensive menu offerings, but Nikki-Lee said she and Tommy usually end up ordering the same things. 

“The buffalo blasts are amazing! For the main dish, I usually get stuffed chicken tortillas,” she told HuffPost. “I try to get something new each time, but always end up with that. Tommy usually gets fettuccine Alfredo or a burger.”

And for dessert, they are all about the Oreo Dream Extreme Cheesecake, which even made an appearance in their engagement pics. 

“There’s so many [cheesecakes] I want to try but we both love this one!” Nikki-Lee added. 

The couple’s wedding is set for August 26 in Coronado, California. According to the bride-to-be, the occasion will (regrettably) not be Cheesecake Factory-themed. 

“Although it would be pretty amazing to have an Oreo Dream Cheesecake wedding cake!” she said. 

We couldn’t agree more. Below, photos from the rest of the couple’s San Diego Seaport Village shoot.

Zombie Factory


Noting that most traditional examinations of stress view it as a medical condition, this guide takes an anthropological approach and reveals a less threatening picture of this natural response to danger. Using narratives from people in very stressful situationsincluding a spy, an executive, a refugee camp worker, and a policemanthe discussion shows that even harrowing amounts of stress can be productive as long as the patterns of its application do not turn dangerous. Summarizing these findings as they apply to American workers, the authors suggest solutions to avoid becoming a virtual zombie who has little awareness of his actions.
