Industry blogs

Earlier, I mentioned my newfound love for the blog Fashion Incubator, which is about the nuts and bolts of the fashion industry. I'd love to find a few more blogs like this. I read lots of food blogs, for instance, but is there a food buyer or a general manager writing a blog somewhere? Publishing-industry blogs that are about the business rather than the books? Other great industry blogs?

http://www.englishcut.com/ is a very well written and enjoyable blog about English bespoke suits and tailoring. It's been around for a while and I enjoy visiting it from time to time even though I will likely never slip into a bespoke suit. A nice and recent "review" of English Cut is at http://marketingconversation.com/2010/07/09/english-cut-is-still-the-best-of-breed-brand-blog/

Mary Kirby's Runway Girl blog for Flight Global http://www.flightglobal.com/blogs/runway-girl/ is very good on all things commercial aviation; Richard Aboulafia's monthly newsletter (not a blog, strictly speaking, I suppose) is always very insightful on commercial and military aircraft manufacturing http://www.richardaboulafia.com/newsletters/

I assume you already read Barry Ritholtz -- finance industry spilling into general economics. Great blog. http://www.ritholtz.com/blog/

The quote is Kanye West, from a song called American Boy.

Confessions of a Community College Dean (suburbdad.blogspot.com) has a lot of great discussion about academic administration and the long-term political and economic trends that are re-shaping higher education. You might be especially interested in a post written yesterday, about how the short-term nature of stimulus funding fits poorly with long-term institutional needs, and results in an "individually rational, collectively insane" outcome.

Food directional trends and clues can be found within the fastest growing sector of retail foodservice. That sector is the grocerant sector. For more on that booming niche visit:

You'll chuckle at this, but Derek Lowe's In the Pipeline blog is an excellent look into the trials and tribulations of the pharmaceutical industry.
