Not 100% sure what you're asking, but Super numbers refer to the fineness of the yarn. In Huddersfield, the traditional way of grading yarn was to see how many spools (or hanks) could be spun out of one pound of wool. So if a wool was 70s, that meant one pound yielded 70 hanks. As time went on, technology and consumer preferences eventually pushed that number up. So now we have Super 200s or whatever.Finer yarn can mean softer fabrics, but softness has multiple dimensions....
What adaptations did you want? Lower prices? They drive cabs around the city and IME do a pretty good job.The main thing Uber does is give you lower prices, which they're able to do because they squeeze the driver and avoid paying for licenses. That lack of license also puts the driver at greater liability (and gives you less safety).There are apps now for reg cabs. The main downside is that you have to pay a higher price.
All those guys who used to work manufacturing jobs should just apply to be Influencers and Curators.
I think most people only size down half a size on Viberg. I went with a full size down on Andrew from 3sixteen's advice and found they fit well. If you get the OSBs, I think the sole looks better when it's a bit thicker. They use a single sole. A good cobbler can add a treaded Vibram Topy on, however, which will thicken the profile. IMO, it makes the boot look better. Just make sure it's the chunky treaded Vibram, not one of those thin Topys. Personally prefer Viberg...
I haven't had any problems using cabs in San Francisco. They can be hard to hail off the street, but they've been fine for me if I use an app/ call. Don't like Uber cause it seems like they're bad for workers. Both Uber's workers and reg taxi drivers. Those guys pay a small fortune for their license, then get totally side busted with Uber using legal loopholes.
If you sign up for an online account you can earn points towards a future purchase. Their point system is actually really stupid, but if you're going to purchase stuff, you might as well earn points just in case you might use them at some point. Note that points expire after a year and certificates earned expire after 60 days.
Really just depends on your skin type and needs. Facial Fuel is their line for men, but I suspect it's just gender-ized marketing (stuff packaged for gendered stereotypes, largely because men are skeptical and/ or afraid of specialty grooming products). It's a good line though. Kind of all-purpose. I've used their FF moisturizer and scrub and like them.Then they have specialized stuff for different skin types/ needs. I've given up on the Facial Fuel moisturizer in favor of...
That shirt vaguely looks like something you'd see on Kickstarter.
Also too high for me, but not nearly as offensive as the blue DB posted above. I think it goes well with that kind of Phineas Cole look, which is inherently a bit aggressive. Just not something I would personally wear. I like Jean Claude Ellena's peak lapels at the top of this post, which are a lot lower set. I just haven't thought about how I feel about all the other details (belly, width, etc). Thinking about doing this SBPL thing on a tan wool gab suit.
Jesus, those look awful (sorry to whoever made them).
