Oh come on, that is incredibly trite, it is absolutely a trend over the last 5 years since Nike went with the Free run, copying the 5 fingers fad (which are only 10 years old themselves).Whether it stays around, or the wheel turns back to "you need the most support you can get" which defined 1980s and 1990s running is what remains to be seen.
Every shoe maker makes the current trendy minimalist/barefoot imitation running shoes these days. Puma, adidas etc. all have their models which are cheaper than Nikes. You don't need to pay extra for Nikes if you don't want to. They're a big investment for something you may not like. Nikes are good for narrow feet. If you really want to get serious about running, go to a running store/podiatrist that will map your feet and recommend something appropriate.
Funnily enough, the only thing I don't like about Rugged Luxury is their name and their leather brand tag... I think it's cliched and cheap-sounding.Maybe we could get them to do a special run "SF" branded leather tag to stick on some bags...
Also - free shipping Interestingly, according to this, looks like they have manufactured for Hunt Leather in the past too http://www.ruggedluxury.com/shop/pages/Corporate-Gifts-and-Branding-Information.html
For all the talk of bags, I feel like I should pump these guys up given that they are Aust. made, well made and well priced. I've visited their shop in Byron. We shouldn't need to look O/S for quality leather. http://www.ruggedluxury.com/shop/ Eg. http://www.ruggedluxury.com/shop/products/Traveller.html & where else could you buy something like this? http://www.ruggedluxury.com/shop/products/Kangaroo-Scrotum-Bottle-Opener.html
For the person who would looking at Double O ring belts, check out the HY sale. http://www.howardyount.com/collections/2013-clearance?page=1
I hope that, for once, they don't try and rip Australians off/unload stock that never sold elsewhere.
I highly recommend that everyone trying sitting & slouching in your shirts before deciding whether they fit. If they pucker too much vertically (a little bit is to be expected), or split horizontally at all, along the placket, then this means they are too tight. I imagine that the shirt posted earlier must have those problems. I've learnt from a great deal of trial and error that it's impossible to achieve a perfectly slim fitting Ralph Lauren model-esque look while...
I agree with HC and meant to post earlier re. that shirt picture. It's too tight around the hips & waist. EIther try darts, or do what I have been doing recently since I don't like darts which is to have a slightly smaller back waist/hip/chest measurement than front (basic principle is that you need a bit more fabric in the front than the back, while keeping the side seam centered, but only a little. For instance I think my shirts were at about 10.5" back waist, 11.25"...
In my share house we use this stuff.... One box probably lasts our entire house for 10 months or so, and it costs about $40 IIRC. Cheap as chips and lasts forever. And works pretty well, despite it's sinister name. I also use Oxyclean on shirts. Only thing that ever smells are things made out of poly, which is pretty much inevitable after a while. What are your routines for whites? I have oxyclean as stated above, and a bit of Bluo occasionally. I've heard that people...
