In this surreal, upside-down vision of the world, it almost seems as if it is the Israelis who are occupied by the Palestinians, and not the other way around. In this skewed universe, the inmates of an open-air prison are besieging a nuclear-armed power with one of the most sophisticated militaries in the world.

Really love riding with gear that I like. Buy less, buy better was a big part of the #menswear scene, and carrying it into cycling has made startup expensive but worth it. My friends who chase sales and buy things they don’t love end up with closets and drawers full of stuff that they are happy to replace, whereas I like all of my stuff enough that I can pass up new purchases because I like what I already have.
