Yes, Ladies and Gentleman, A+R is finally on Facebook.
I managed to finally squeeze some time in yesterday, and only because I couldn't bear to explain to the umpteenth person asking why we didn't have one—especially given it was such a lame excuse: as in "it's on the to-do list!" It was completely true. […]
Now the world can discover what Andy and I already know: once you walk in George Esquivel's shoes, you can actually keep walking.
I have several pairs of his lace-up brogues, a couple plain, others more traditional—well, except for the color combos! […]

By its very nature, customization knows no bounds. Yet the prospect of candy coloring a Leica D-Lux 5, had me seeing red…then blue.
