The Weekend Reset: The Brooks Brothers Revival, Spring Edibles, and surfing the latest Window’s update.

It’s Friday. Looking for something to switch your weekend up, or to give you an excuse to relax a little? That’s what the Weekend Reset is for. Each week contributor Tim Johnstone pulls together five things to get your weekend started. Could be something to read or watch, something to eat or listen to, or even something to do. Enjoy the weekend fellas.  

 

DISCOVER: How Brooks Brothers is preparing for the future.

How Brook’s Brothers found it’s footing after years of neglect, and how they plan to be the leader in men’s fashion retail for years to come.

 

EAT: Spring time edibles in a flash!

Pasta Primavera with Springtime Vegetables. This easy to make dish features some of Spring’s all star veggies partnered with the simple pleasure of pasta and fresh cheese. 20 minutes. You’ve got 20 minutes. Make your own dinner tonight.

 

EXPLORE: All you need to know about the new Windows 10 update.

The Guardian has you covered. Because no one wants to read the manual.

 

READ: It’s not new. But it is prime spooky stuff.

This is the reason I didn’t sleep well last weekend. Dan Simmons has written award winning Sci-Fi along with some truly scary genre fiction. But this. This is one of the scariest books I’ve read in forever. It was one of Simmon’s first forays into horror and it is something special. The story is beyond creepy, the bits of late 50’s early 60’s Americana are spot on, and it is terrifying. Yes, this story centers around a group of pre-teens facing the promise of a long summer of fun. The characters are not only exceptionally brought to life, but they are relatable, even when you root against them, bad guys being what they are. When a novel is written in such a way that you visualize every bit of it as it happens as if in a movie without even thinking about it (kind of like when you forget you’re reading subtitles ten minutes into a movie), it is worth savoring. But savoring can be hard when you are shivering.

 

WATCH: Incoming!

This has a whole lot going for it. It’s based on a true story. Gus Van Sant directs. And the line up includes Joaquin Phoenix, Jonah Hill, Carrie Brownstein, Jack Black, Rooney Maran, Beth Ditto, and Kim Gordon. That’s more than enough for me.

It’s On Sale: Denim Repairs

Ever since the raw denim revival has blown up in the US, dozens of specialty repair shops have cropped up to help people preserve their favorite pair of jeans. Denim is a hardy fabric, but – when worn day-in, day-out – even the best-made jeans will start wearing thin. And, at some point, they’ll develop holes. 

I get my jeans repaired about once a year at Denim Therapy. They’re just one of the many shops nowadays that specialize in something known as darning, which is where a seamstress covers up a hole by essentially “weaving” in new material. The result is sturdier than a simple patch job – which is what you’ll get at a more common alterations tailor – and when done with matching threads, it’ll look a lot less conspicuous. Which is good for areas like, you know, your crotch. 

At the moment, Denim Therapy is offering a 15% discount on all reweaving repairs. If you’re outside of NYC and can’t drop your jeans off at their shop, you’ll have to mail them in. For a basic repair, as well as the cost of shipping back and forth, you can expect to pay between $ 50 and $ 75. That’s about the price of entry-level raw denim nowadays, but this way, you get to wear your favorite pair of jeans a bit longer. And like with good leather shoes, the charm of denim is all about how the material looks as it ages. 

Note, in order to get the discount, your jeans have to be in their shop by March 9th. If you’re mailing these in, factor in a week for shipping. You can also see this post for some examples of things I’ve had done at Denim Therapy
