yummy mercato: Yummy Industries
Belts are the next tie- you know, that understated way to display your individuality while wearing the corporate wardrobe. Each belt is a "woven drawing" by artists such as Burgerman, Flotte, Colorblok- to name a few. I wanted to get one of these for my awesome cousin, but found them too late to get them to the US from Switzerland. Giant Robot in the US has some, but not the one I had my eye on for him.
Yummy Industries creates art for your waist by commissioning a variety of artists to design their belts-- and they pretty much universally rock. I don't know why they're so hard to find in the US. Guess that's good news for all you first adopters out there. :D
