Industrie Denim's founder and veteran denim purveyor, Mark Werts, has partnered with Levi Strauss to present customers with clothing from more than 80 denim design houses from around the world. Each location is decorated with industrial elements sourced from local junkyards and flea markets and also hosts a self-styled jean-ius. Jean-iuses stay abreast of the latest style trends and can assist shoppers in finding pants that flatter figures ranging from pear- to star-fruit-shaped. Guests can admire the jean-ius's handiwork in one of the store's booty cams, which are located in select dressing rooms. In-house tailors guide their needles around not-quite-right hems and waistlines, adding a personalized touch to each pair of impeccably fitted trousers.
A Southwest-based company for more than a century, Frazee Paint and its team of manufacturers are well acquainted with the unique climactic conditions of the region. Always pulling from the latest technology, their technicians design each of their paint and coating products to withstand dry heat, sparse rainfall, and showers of chewing tobacco from passing cowboys. Their quality paints, wall-coverings, wood-care products, and painter's tools stock the shelves of more than 125 retail locations throughout California, Arizona, and Nevada, as well as international dealers in Mexico, China, and Guam.
FastFrame’s skilled framers customize borders for an array of wall-worthy pieces. Selecting from an extensive inventory of materials, they craft frames to showcase original artwork or to endow special photographs with a dignified display. Their carefully curated conservation materials prevent works of art from fading and prevent their subjects from sprouting a 5 o’clock shadow. But the framesmiths don't limit themselves to two dimensions—sports memorabilia, kids’ artwork, and other three-dimensional objects find artistic preservation within shadowboxes. They even transform flat-screen TVs into customized, framed works of art by installing a VisionArt feature, which transmits the still image of a painting, family portrait, or favorite infomercial onto idle screens.
Clients entrust their valuables to Baker Fairview Self Storage, and the facility pulls out all the stops in order to keep those belongings safe. A computer-controlled gate greets each entrant, and a closed-circuit television system keeps constant watch over the grounds. At the storage unit—which come in a variety of sizes—the door is alarmed individually, discouraging intruders from tampering with your stuff even if they manage to get past the gate. Owners, meanwhile, can opt for cool basement units and take advantage of the packing and moving supplies available for purchase.
Bugs Bunny. Daffy Duck. Porky Pig. Even if they don’t immediately recognize his name, everyone’s seen the characters that Chuck Jones created, whether on TV or in their nightly dreams. The Looney Toons animator, director, screenwriter, and producer won four Oscars for his legendary work, but in 1999 he set his sights onto a new goal: create a place where everyone's innate creative genius can flourish. The Chuck Jones Center for Creativity’s guiding mission is to animate dormant creative impulses with art classes, exhibitions, lectures, and film festivals. Classes, which welcome adults and kids alike, concentrate on topics such as dioramas, pastels, and illustration.
