As the owner of two pairs of those W+H shoes, I have to say that at $380 versus say $420/430 for CP's, the look make sense as a bit more rugged and all that but the quality is far behind. I've enjoyed wearing both my pairs but if I'd actually paid $380CAD I'd be a little pissed. Like so much of W+H, they're still decent, but probably 20% overpriced. I got mine for closer to $200 and at that price it's fine.
HHC just can't seem to get nicely over 100. I think I started buying in around 100-110, and fortunately picked some up quite a bit around 90 IIRC too and have sell orders for 110 and 120 etc and as much as it's come up, seemed to peak there at 107/108 and then fall back down to under 100 a few times. No dividend either so I'm just waiting... In a related note, seems to be the same case with both my DIS and NFLX stocks. Both seem to just be hovering around that 100 but...
couple of good points there, thanks. Yes, so as far as I know, for places like Toronto, our mortgages reset every 5 years (which actually seems fair game). If you could lock in for 30 years at a low rate that would be pretty great. Also becuase of the current low rates, people are overleveraged... my parents house is a fairly cookie cutter suburban 3/4 bedroom 2 bathroom 3 floors type dealio and should sell for maybe $650-750 but the local comps are selling for more like...
Yeah based on what you're carrying, should be fine with the 256 actually. The 257 has quite a lot more room available but having had one I found it just ends up being too big and heavy and the 256 holds as much as you should probably be carrying around like that anyway. Comes down to the occasionally just that bit too snug 256 versus the always too big 257.
Dave Matthews meets Tom Hanks? (both compliments!) Looks like a cool jacket but purely my opinion here, seems a bit 'shrunken'. Maybe wear it open? I dunno, honestly it just looks too small to my eye
I think you guys hit the overall main points which are that houses aren't really 'investments' and depending on your lifestyle/plans one option may work better. They might make money, but in all likelihood between the cost to buy/sell and maintenance cost+effort and risk of lack of diversity, more or less assume you'll break even and probably could have made a bit more by investing the money in a market, but if you're getting married and having kids and don't plan to move...
Ginger Crackhead? (as in cracked pepper) eh I'm afraid I'm not very good at this...
Quick interest check here before I post these up officially in the B&S. I've got a pair of APC Petite Standards in size 26, mint condition, worn like 3-4 times max and still crunchy/stiff. They're the faux noire color so like a dark charcoal more or less, basically a 'light' black color (picture below). They've never been hemmed or washed. I took a guess on sizing and bought these online and tried to break them in a few times and gave up and am now looking to sell them. PM...
I realize I'm talking to a group of proud home owners here... but then again i see some of you guys over in the stocks/bonds trading thread too. I was reading a blog post somewhere and it reminded me about the point of rent versus own debate and I figured eh I've got the time, so i spent a couple of days reading everything i could find and made up a list of pro/con for each side below... I'm curious to hear your guys' thoughts on this. Some of these points are obviously my...
today is a first, I'm wearing McQueen Kingdom, which I expected to be something like Lutens MKK or whatever but instead it's basically a dirty classic french fragrance more or less, or older middle eastern lady. Deep rich florals, sort of musty with a dry spicy powder funk. I'll keep wearing this one through but I don't see it as groundbreaking or anything, maybe just becuase of where it's coming from but put this in an Amouage bottle or tell me it's a Guerlain from a long...
