BUNNY YEAGER’S LEGACY OF EROTIC ART PHOTOGRAPHY & MIAMI’S “JEWISH ORGY”
There are many interesting, historical bits to discover in the Bunny Yeager Archive at the University of Miami Special Collections. Bunny Yeager was clearly the “world’s prettiest photographer,” and was into “finding regular girls around Miami,” in the 1960s. She had famously photographed Bettie Page in several exotic locations across Florida too.Continue reading

GREY T-SHIRTS MATTER | THE UNSUNG HERO: SUPER-SOFT HEATHER GREY TRI-BLEND TEES
CRAIG VON SCHROEDER / CO-FOUNDER OF COMMONWEALTH PROPER / PHL – ATL – PITT WEARING OUR “FTW – SCREAMIN’ EAGLE T-SHIRT” IN HEATHER GREY, TRI-BLEND JERSEY
The Selvedge Yard definitely sells a lot more black tees than any other color. I get it. I love black too. When I’m not wearing a black tee , I’m wearing a Heather Grey Tri-blend T-shirt. It’s a perfect mid-weight 50/25/25 blend of poly / combed ring-spun cotton / rayon knit that reduces shrinking, and is super-soft.
I like how Tri-blend tees age with wear, getting softer with each wash and gradually breaking down to feel perfectly aged like your coveted, old vintage poly / cotton blend gym shirt.

THE BIG NAMES OF 1972 AMA RACE AT SALEM 1/2 MILE FLAT TRACK | VIA WORLD OF SPEED
In 1972, Kenny Roberts was a youthful 21 years old AMA Rookie of the Year. An immensely talented and thoroughly analytical rider, Roberts was already three years into his professional racing career, and two years into a factory Yamaha contract. However, he was still not much known outside of the USA. Roberts went on to finish 2nd in the AMA Grand National Championship that year, his first season as an expert class rider.
HOW RITA MORENO USED ELVIS TO MAKE CHEATING MARLON BRANDO JEALOUS
“Rita Moreno knew how to make her cheating boyfriend jealous long before the age of social media. The task is simple; just a three-step process. First, date screen legend Marlon Brando. Second, find evidence of his affair (what would be the first of many). Third, get asked on a date by Elvis Presley and accept. While this seems like a page of Old Hollywood fan fiction, this was, in fact, Moreno’s life.” –From the pages of Vanity Fair.Continue reading
ROBERT DE NIRO AS MAX CADY | THE KING JAMES-INSPIRED TATTOOS IN “CAPE FEAR”
“The 1991 Martin Scorsese-directed thriller Cape Fear may seem an unlikely candidate for documenting the use and influence of the King James Bible, But its central character, Max Cady, as played by Robert De Niro, wielded biblical verses like weapons.”Continue reading
