02 June News – Rosemont Textiles one-way cargo straps

Today is Tuesday, 02 June and I woke up this morning thinking about something new…
today I am curious about news on 1-way cargo strapping.
It’s different from my normal news posts, but think about it… all these clothes are made in various parts of the world, and need to be shipped elsewhere, right? So shipping companies need to use 1-way cargo strapping to deliver the goods.

Carbon Brief (blog) — Countries fail to set shipping climate target

Countries rejected the opportunity to place a global emissions reduction target on the shipping industry at a meeting of the International Maritime Organisation in London this week.
Proposed by the Marshall Islands, this would have been the first time that a cap was placed on the sector, which is projected to grow in the decades ahead as trade and the world economy expands.
But the lack of consensus over how to collect data on shipping emissions put a stranglehold on the discussions, with many nations unwilling to sign up to an emissions reduction goal without a sure way to measure progress.
A growing sector
More than 90% of global trade goes by sea. According to the IMO, there were more than 104,000 ships in the world registered in over 150 nations in 2010.
This comes with an environmental cost. Shipping is responsible for around 3.1% of global carbon dioxide emissions. Every year between 2007 and 2012, ships emitted an average of one billion tonnes of carbon dioxide – more than Germany.
Total global emissions must fall to net zero in the second half of the century in order to have a good chance of meeting an international target of limiting…

The sun-kissed outdoors of Southern California serves as the locale for Rufskin promotional photography. “The crispest lights are in the desert,” explains company co-founder and head designer Hubert Pouches. “I’m happiest surrounded by palm trees.”
Pouches personally photographs Rufskin product images at an outdoor studio at the home he shares with his partner of 25 years, Douglas Coats. Co-owner and company president Coats launched the high-profile San Diego-based men’s clothing business with Pouches in 2002. The duo met in the early 1990s in Paris, when Portland native Coats worked as a model at the agency that French-born Pouches owned and operated.
Rufskin began with crafting well-cut, form-emphasizing and uniquely styled men’s jeans, an item of surprisingly scarce offering at the time and which Pouches noticed was driving male shoppers to the women’s section of clothing stores. The business quickly expanded into a widely known creator and purveyor of swimwear, underwear, athletic wear and casual clothing items for men. Originating from a garage in San Diego, business growth was rapid, evolving to a globally recognized company respected for its well-crafted wares.
A conversation with Pouches quickly reveals his passion for the company’s products and commitment to brand excellence. His background as…

The Frieze Art Fair began in London in 2003, introduced by Amanda Sharp and Matthew Slotover, the publishers of the contemporary art magazine Frieze. Appropriately enough, this English import’s New York edition takes place each spring on Randalls Island, which served as a military post for British troops in the Colonial era.
This year was the fourth New York iteration of Frieze, which ran from Thursday to Sunday. Collectors, gadabouts and gallerists came by ferry and Uber to stroll through the quarter-mile-long tent filled with works represented by 198 commercial dealers and three nonprofit galleries.
“Better hurry: All the good art will be gone,” an editor said as the artists, art lovers and scenesters filed in. We met with some of the stylish first arrivals and asked them about their looks…

25 May News — A Guide to the Confusing

Today is Monday, 25 May and I woke up this morning curious about news on men’s casual pants. Think about it… what was it like back in the day to ONLY have hard copy tabloid paper news copy to read? Too slow, right?

Commenting on women’s dress and skirt lengths has been the subject of frenzied fashion talk since mankind set its mind to the task of covering up. But recently, fluctuations in the length of men’s trousers have caused raised eyebrows and head scratching too. Skirt lengths are so last millenium This spring the most fashionable trousers are finishing a number of inches above the masculine ankle, sending some guys into a sartorial tailspin not experienced since soccer player David Beckham wore a sarong (a fancy word for a wrap-around skirt) in 1998.

Much of this can be laid at the door of designer Thom Browne, a man who wears trousers of any length except long. “Thom Browne has made very short cropped trousers his signature over the past several years and that works for a very specific guy,” Brian Boye, executive fashion director of Men’s Health told the Observer. Mr. Browne’s edgy, cropped trousers have now filtered out into the mainstream of men’s fashion. To keep your trousers the right side of something a clown might wear, according to Mr. Boye, the trick is to ensure they don’t creep up any higher than mid-shin. “It’s best if they fall about an…

By Barrie Barber Staff Writer
WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE —
Piece by piece, a C-17 Globemaster III trainer has arrived at Wright-Patterson in an unconventional way for the giant cargo jet.
On Tuesday, the tail section of the trainer arrived on the back of a flatbed trailer and rolled through a base gate after a more than 2,000-mile highway journey that began at Joint Base San Antonio in Texas.
Parts of the plane will be reassembled at the U.S. Air Force School of Aerospace Medicine to train future military medical flight crews who tend to wounded patients on aeromedical evacuation flights around the world, said Brian Pollock, who is overseeing the C-17 project.
The school trains as many as 600 students in an academic semester.
As many as 15 to 19 trips will be needed over a month to bring all the pieces of the plane to the Miami Valley base, said Wright-Patterson spokeswoman Gina Giardina.
The Air Force coordinated with states along the route to accommodate the extra-wide load, she said.
The C-17 is the primary cargo jet the Air Force flies to transport wounded service members on aeromedical evacuation flights out of Afghanistan and places around the globe. The…

BBC News -- Iran releases seized cargo ship

BBC News — Iran releases seized cargo ship

A container ship seized in the Strait of Hormuz by Iran last week has been released, its operator has confirmed.
Rickmers Shipmanagement said the 24 crew members of the Maersk Tigris were “in a good condition”.
The Marshall Islands-flagged vessel was intercepted by Iranian patrol boats on 28 April and taken to Bandar Abbas.
Iran said the ship was detained because of a legal dispute between the Danish company chartering it, Maersk, and a private Iranian firm.
Maersk says the dispute dates backs to 2005, when it delivered 10 containers to Dubai for Pars Oil Products. The containers were not collected and the cargo was disposed of after 90 days by the UAE authorities, it asserts.
The Iranian company subsequently accused Maersk of default and claimed $4m (£2.6m) as the value of the cargo. Maersk said it challenged the suit successfully and in 2007 the case was dismissed.
However, an appeals court ordered it to pay $163,000 (£107,400) in February.
‘International obligations’
Iran’s Ports and Shipping Organisation said permission for the release of the ship was given on Thursday after Maersk “ensured the provision of a letter of guarantee for the enforcement of the judicial decision”.
A Maersk statement said…

Farewell winter coats, hello shirt sleeves. Stephen Doig rates the season’s best men’s fashion investments.
Return of the mac
As optimistic as we tend to become about spring’s emergence and the jolly promise of sun-drenched days, May weather still calls for a dose of wardrobe realism. Short shirt sleeves and fresh linens may speak of balmy climes, but the effect diminishes somewhat when you’re shivering in Arctic gusts. You can’t go wrong by investing in a solid piece of outerwear from Herno, an Italian company that has been creating technically accomplished coats since the 1940s. This classic mac (above) continues that tradition £818, available from clubmonaco. Even the most contemporary menswear brands are turning to the quiet joy of a sensible mac and utilising its minimalist charm. Albam, renowned for its British-made, utilitarian pieces, has created a lightweight mac in a water-repellent Italian cotton, its seams sealed internally with military-spec tape to ensure maximum water resistance.
Sneaker preview
Trainer connoisseurs have long been waiting for the launch of a one-off collaboration between Nike and Dover Street Market that reinvents the iconic Air Jordan. Why is that important? Because if you’re something of a sole-seeker, you approach a rarefied trainers …
