"That’s the Grandmaster in the back. He doesn’t speak much English. He was number one in China back in 1980, so I knew of his name long before I met him. He’s very humble. A true gentleman fighter. He’s 68, but I’ve seen him put a spear against his neck, and use it to push a car."
"So at what point can you call yourself a Grandmaster?"
"A Grandmaster doesn’t say he’s a Grandmaster. Other people say it for him."
"This men’s shirt by Corpo Nove is woven with titanium, which allows the fabric to react to temperature shifts. The shirt holds its wrinkles when bunched up, and then instantly relaxes when exposed to a current of hot air ( as from an electric hair dryer). The shirt can thus be "ironed" while its user wears it, and creases and 3D elements can be embedded in the fabric’s memory."
