You first!!
Yeah pretty sure after i realized that a single day of walking around on fresh leather soles wasn't enough to give them traction -- vibram every time.
Ah, fair.
Well it is good to know that he draws the line at $800 dollar sneakers. I'm sure the community appreciates the head's up. I know I do!
Yeah it was a low offer -- I mean who knows if he really did talk to them or not -- but if its between believing that he made the effort and that was what he could get vs believing that its some sort of condescending backhanded token placation move -- it doesn't seem worth it to feel out the unhappy path. I mean dude definitely reads these forums, so maybe my post triggered the offer, who knows, but I try not to go too deep into the conspiracy thing, at least not...
I dunno I would try on in person... honestly have found VA in pants and tops to be extremely slim. Slimmer than attachment/jun hashimoto/devoa and incarnation, maybe Julius/wjk slim. To the point where I couldn't get size 4/5 VA on (pants/tops/outerwear). I have 1 VA overcoat that does fit though, size 4.You are definitely slimmer than me sinnedk, but would probably not buy online without return options (or very careful sizing/measurement questioning) until one has had...
Just to follow up on my Yang Li green bomber pre-order, not that anyone probably cares, but just in case! Retailer apparently talked with the manufacturer and offered a 40 euro discount which was supposedly a discount from wholesale from Yang Li to the retailer that they were going to pass onto me. I said nah, thanks for making the effort, was unexpected and appreciated, but there's no need for that. Just wanted to know if there's anything we can do to mitigate the risk...
Nod, so is real estate another industry that is ridiculously hard to innovate in or improve. I am hopeful though. I feel like we are starting to see the beginnings of a shift in power in who decides what gets made into TV whereas before networks had all the power because that was where the real money is and the eyeballs. This factored of course into production capabilities and decisions especially once a certain level of production value was expected in a network...
Right so maybe one day -- technology will change the nature of production and the balance of power will shift -- and there will be more control over production than whatever the factories throw back to them, changing the nature of the relationship between retailers and manufacturing. I mean maybe it's too pie in the sky to hold my breath, but not holding my breath. 3d printing??? One can hope. I'm not entirely sure how you divorce the balance of power and the industry?
That's why I said it's not the retailers fault and mentioned that maybe they can negotiate a whole sale price discount with the manufacturer when things change that drastically and pass the savings to the end customer. So -- with that in mind is what you said still applicable? I mean I get how the pre-order business model works and why no refunds or discounts can be offered, but maybe I'm missing a nuance that you are trying to convey to me. I'm sure there's still a lack...
