Lulllzzzzzz. We'd pay the same amount for a jacket, except 15% would go to you? I hope you are joking.
Man, you really are a grumpy old dude. Impromptu chats with my neighbors are one of the most personally enriching parts of commuting through my neighborhood. There is a rehabilitation center (i.e., nursing home, but not just for old people) a couple blocks from my house, so I get to have some really interesting conversations with some very peculiar characters. It's fun.
It's a hell of a nice thing to be able to commute only by foot or bike from your front door. It's worth a lot more than just the time savings. There's something wonderful about walking out my front door and strolling or biking through my neighborhood to work. I get to know the place and people more, and it makes me a hell of a lot happier than sitting in a car/bus/train.
I like the cap. Was it from Ebay?
Armpit to cuff is a horrible way to measure. You can have two sleeves with the same sleeve length from the shoulder, but very different measurements from the pit due to the armhole size. Inverallan knits have wide sleeves, which makes measurements from the pit short.
I'm not purchasing much these days (actually thinking about selling a fair amount), so I pretty much only get the occasional unique pieces. Like an Inverallan cashmere scarf.
Bought that cashmere scarf.
You know all this from pictures? I, too, thought they looked great in photos, until I handled a couple pairs. The leather and distressing were truly awful in person. That's some 'really handmade US craftsmanship' that I can do without. I've long since moved on from Red Wings and exclusively wear Aldens and Heschung. Talk about handmade craftsmanship...
Grail? Or, have GATs officially jumped the shark? (Pun intended)
Can someone (@LA Guy) just put this in Dumb Threads already?
