Friday Favorites: The Greatest Speech Ever

Plus the end of streetwear, Chicago’s peregrine falcons, a table inspired by the heartland forerunner of Legos, a reuse plan for Prentice Hospital, and more

“And in 1962 a little boy was born and his dream and his goal was to own a monkey…. God bless you, Illinois.” (h/t @nocoastoffense)


1960s logos by Milton Glaser and Seymour Chwast for Chicago’s CBS-2.


I don’t know if this is so much a favorite as something weirdly fascinating: the logical end of streetwear. Once you run out of colorways, you just start turning logos upside down. Anyway, if you want to stand out (for better or worse) at the United Center, these are available through Hall of Fame Ltd.


David Schalliol shoots New Orleans. As always, he’s amazing.
