Editor’s Selections | 10 Highlights of the Week

Time to look back at the week that was. This edition of our Editor’s Selections covers all bases from a short back and sides complete with fully-stocked bar at the Blind Barber Williamsburg, to the coming together of two German engineering giants as Leica and Audi meet to create this year’s most covetable camera, the T series.
