Sign installed at 18|8 Fine Men's Salon in Bethesda (Photos)

The future 18|8 Fine Men's Salon has installed its permanent sign at 7550 Wisconsin Avenue. It will be the second male-oriented salon in Bethesda. 18|8 will serve beer and wine to patrons when they open.

Ok who ever planned that has some serious design flaws.

The name is directly under the building number. Which is bad for the building and the retailer. 7550 1818 Fine Men's Salon. So the building address is what? The retailer address is what?

1 8 pipe 8. Casually that looks like 1818. Or 18I8. Or 18l8.

Could go on and on. As a design professional.

The somewhat cryptic design is sort of a protection at the point of entry. It keeps those who are not cultured or progressive enough to be using the service from attempting to do so.

In a way it is a softer way of having the entry controls that a speakeasy or private club would. Men like my husband, who are properly groomed, know all about Eighteen Eight and instantly recognize that logo. Because men like him walk into the store confidently and without hesitation, the staff there knows they are serving a cultured client.

Ever see someone walk into the Neiman Marcus in Mazza Gallery and horribly mispronounce Hermes? The staff there know to ignore that person and focus on more deserving patrons.

6:54 is being sarcastic, right?

I feel sorry for 6:54's husband. Probably isn't allowed to eat burgers and fries.

How do you know 6:54 is a woman? But yes I fee sorry for the husband too. Unless he's like that also. In which case Darwinism will take care of its own when he leaves the club one night.

Nice bit of satire from 6:54

@6:54 - If you are serious please leave Bethesda. I feel sorry for your husband and any kids you might have.

First the Glenstone and now this! The Ford Mustang crowd sure gets upset when the progressives of Bethesda try to keep something nice for ourselves.

I agree. If it is indeed satire and 6:54 isn't serious.

@10:04 - so are you saying to be progressive means to be an asshole? And what does Ford Mustang's have to do with anything?

6:54/10:04 is a parody of the progressive mindset. Frankly it's pretty funny as most things that are have some truth to them. We can only hope that when these progressives let their au-pair drive their Tesla to pickup dinner, (wife can't cook), she runs away from spoiled little brats they've raised to be parasites on society.

Piss off a liberal: Work hard and be happy!
