Human Being Inside

Need Supply Co. is probably the only bastion of steez in Virginia, right? Have you guys ever been to Virginia? One time I drove through there with my best friend and we stopped at a Dairy Queen and that's pretty much all I remember. Anyways, shouts to Need Supply for putting out the 4th issue of their Human Being Journal. When you get it in the mail, the package says "HUMAN BEING INSIDE," which is whatever, but also a great way to gauge the cool factor of your building's doorman. My guy was like, "You ain’t a weird Carcosa killer are you?" when he handed me the package. I was like, "HIGH FIVE FOR SHARED POP CULTURE EXPERIENCES!" But then I opened the package up and realized this issue features interviews with Ryan McGinness and the folks from Han Kjobenhavn. Ryan McGinness is an artist you should pretend to like a lot to impress chicks that are volunteer docents and shit. When she asks you, "What's Human Being Journal?" simply respond in this manner, "Oh, a nice little magazine out of Virginia I picked it up because of the interview with Ryan McGinness." BOOM. GAME. SET. MATCH. YOU JUST IMPRESSED AN I LIKE ART TYPE GIRL.

    stopped in on my drive from DC to FL yesterday, figured shopping could relieve the tension of a 12+ hour drive and hoped they’d be able to point me in the direction of a low-key taco place (spoiler alert; they will.) plus GQ named it a top-25 menswear store in the US.

    the staff is friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable about the product (they actually wear it.) the retail space is a bit small and the selection doesn’t compare to the online store. the presentation isn’t anything special, though it may be revolutionary for VA. overall, content that i got to see it but not worth the trip.

    though I may be jaded because everything looks like slum compared to Barneys on Madison.

    as a Richmond resident, i was stoked to see this on the front page or whatever. I was in there today to pick up a copy and they are always so nice even though I never buy shit from them because I don’t have $400 to blow on a t-shirt. that being said it’s about the only place in Virginia where you can find nice clothes to lust over as you spend you days working a minimum wage job and trying to finish college.
