Balenciaga.   Though I actually like a fair bit of Balenciaga stuff, so...carry on.
The next set of GMTOs, if there is a next set, will not be as wide open as previous GMTOs.  I'll not allow wide open suggestions.  Instead, I'll convocate a private "conference of the wise", of customers who have had extensive experience with Viberg, and who are understand both that necessity to work with Viberg proactively, to produce a much smaller number of boots that have been OK'ed by Brett.  After that, we'll do the votes, etc... I think that Brett is tired of some...
I may, but we have decided to do NYC again for a variety of reasons, starting from just the quality and availability of spaces.   San Francisco sucks for space rentals.  For all the Californians, April in NYC is pretty nice, imo anyway, and I'm trying to see if we can't get a travel sponsor and a group rate at a good hotel...  Cheers, Fok.
So, I didn't preorder, and I am sure that I am an exception to all types of things, but... in my case, I set a strict limit on my personal spending, and adhere to it religiously.  I hold the belief that if I say, even once "well, it just goes on next month' budget", then it's just a sliding scale/slippery slope.  For me, there is no exceptions to the rule. I was also really good at adhering to a restricted diet (incidentally, I am not on one now), exercise regimes, work...
I'm such a mass audience/populist as such things go.
That would also be excellent. "The fleet is ready, Admiral""Very good.  We ship out tomorrow.""Is the plan sound?""God willing. the 10th fleet with stop the U-boats in the North Sea,  That supply convoy has got to get through.  The storms plays in our favor today.""Godspeed.""Aye, I have a feeling we'll need it."
I was just talking about this with my wife this morning.  The S-Cape is possibly the most functional garment for Bergen itself.  I spent a summer there (so, the non-rainy season) and it still rained a ton.  And when it rains in Bergen, it is not a drizzle.  I would go running in the mountains in the rain, and seriously, I was soaked through when I got back and could fill up a large bucket with the rain water I'd accumulated in my clothes.  An S-cape, you can keep...
You have to make a distinction.  The material that we call "sashiko" is the material that was used in Edo era Firemen's uniforms and these days in Brazilian Jiujitsu gis.  Super durable.  The "heavy sashiko" is serious business.  It's a very thick reinforcement thread on a modern canvas (which is much more dense than a traditional homespun), and it is designed to withstand years of strong, powerful men throwing each other around and trying to choke the other dude or break...
Same.  I dress in the lots of colors: Blue, Black, and grey.  Sometimes taupe.
And they are not just very versatile, but they really take travel well too.  I've had mine since either before, or right after, No Man opened (I got it from another store, since No Man did not carry it at the time), and it looks nearly new, even though it's been put through the ringer (ask Kyle - he knows how tough I am on things).  It's one of the rare instances in which form and function actually meet.
