Men In This Town reading MITT

NICHOLAS FERRARIS IN SYDNEY

As part of a new series, I've decided to give second life to the archived issues of MITT magazine by recording men in this town reading some of my favourite features from the now sold out editions.

This week, Nicholas Ferraris in Sydney reads 'Ouigi Theodore in Brooklyn', written by Andrew Geeves and originally published in MITT magazine issue 4, March 2016.

Off the Cuff with Ali: Emperor’s New Clothes

Emperor’s New Clothes

OFF THE CUFF WITH ALI

Off The Cuff with Ali returned to Fine Fellow last week as Ali Asghar Shah led a discussion on his latest column in MITT magazine issue 8; Emperor's New Clothes.

“Objects are only what we make of them and only attain value when we give it to them. Therefore, the popularity of these brands is only a consequence of our endorsement.”

For those of you who couldn't make it, watch a short film from the night by Kris Andrew Small above and a recording of Ali's full talk below.

ROGER SHAMOUN IN POTTS POINT

There was a great sound bite I missed recording when I was shooting Roger Shamoun of Zimma Tailors this past weekend:

“Sometimes I feel like one of those young DJs from the 80’s in a record shop but instead of flipping through records I’m flipping through fabrics”.

We had some great conversions about life and captured a bit of it in the video below.
