After purchasing Carlmont Nursery in 1962 with his personal inventory of more than 8,000 plants as collateral, owner Bob Tyler tripled the facility's physical size and has since established the nursery as one of the Bay Area’s premier sources for japanese maple and bamboo. Fast-forward to the present and Tyler's Carlmont Nursery has become a peaceful oasis filled with an extensive selection of flora, gardening supplies, and decorative items, crisscrossed by gravel paths that meander past a waterfall and along a winding creek. Customers benefit from garden consultations and design services, and the nursery’s skilled technicians can install plants, lighting, and hardscapes to enhance the beauty of home gardens. Nursery emissaries can also put in water features to imitate babbling brooks or gargling humans.

After finishing her classical education in Moscow, piano player Elena Orduyan switched from student to teacher. For more than a decade, she’s taught the ivory-tickling arts to youths and adults alike, sending students off to institutions like Juilliard with skills she helped them hone. She tailors each lesson to her individual students, creating customized lesson books for every player and curating her own lesson materials by mixing and matching texts from a variety of publishers and schools of thought. Her curricula extend past key-tapping: beginners also pick up the basics of music theory, and intermediate-level musicians learn to use music software. Orduyan even helps young kids along with color-coded markers and stickers. Never content to rest on her musical laurels, she also furthers her own education by attending annual music-teaching conferences and events.

Indochino specializes in made-to-measure men's apparel. Casting off vague, archaic sizing methods designed to fit entire groups of people, Indochino builds shirts and other men's wearables to fit the intended torso or other body part. Orderers should enlist a friend to help and watch Indochino’s how-to videos to accurately measure themselves. Once taken, these precise numbers translate into crisp, well-fitted, white button-downs such as the ultimate utility shirt ($79). Both navy blue pinstripe vests ($99) and metallic gray pants ($99) are cut to the shape of a single body and dance to the cymbal crash of a single drum kit. Wrists wearing Indochino's eight-ball cufflinks ($26) can shake themselves for vague answers to pressing questions. Also offering entire suits and tuxedos ($299+)—hand-chalked and cut by a veteran master tailor in Shanghai, a city steeped in the heritage of bespoke tailoring—Indochino assures that meals and drill sergeants aren't the only things made-to-order.
