I don't know if it works completely but I probably don't leave much of a trace when it comes to being tracked due to some measures I took and a variety of other factors. On the other hand I post uncensored pics of myself on public forums.

I'm all for maintaining an open mind about this type of thing, but it's freaking advertising, mate. You may find it particularly fascinating but no, I don't feel I'm being at all held back by my lack of desire to see a 3D pop-up about the next must-own pair of jeans.

I bought the "Academy" model from FSC.

JP has a lot of sales, but I think the moleskins usually get marked down to that level maybe 3-4 times a year. Might be worth signing up for their email list, especially if you like romantic prose about trousers.

It's not the ads themselves that are fascinating; it's how advertisers are collecting implementing data. 

You see an ad for a pair of jeans, but that ad is also telling you that some company recorded that you searched for a specific pair of jeans at 10:58 on 10/19 and are now using that single data point to sell you stuff.

I mean, I still have adblock because it creeps me out, but it seeing those targeted ads is a chilling reminder that skynet is watching you.

H&M x Alexander Wang lookbook released

http://www.vogue.com/3000375/alexander-wang-hm-collaboration/

It's immature, but I find it funny that so many pieces have the word WANG written across it.

I hate the Gustin ad where it says something like "we don't use celebrities or fancy ads, we just make the highest quality american denim, etc." Way more annoying regular ads.

Cordings supposedly make the nicest, but they're at the dearer end. Hoggs of Fife are good value and wash well, so unlike the dry-clean only ones some companies sell are actually practical for wearing on a muddy country walk. Barbour aren't bad and do some in slimmer cuts.

It's because the Wangs are so big.

Lol. At least you understand how futile and funny it is. And pretty much anything is an in. For example, for any website, you can't hide your device or browser or OS if you want it to be served up properly. You look at a few websites, and if they are at all affiliated, or if you look at anything geographically relevant, well, I'm sure you know how it goes.

I'd pay anything for something I wanted, even if it increased my debt load- I'm so ill it doesn't matter any more😊🐱🐱

I have Adblock and don't watch TV but I do watch the NFL and if I see that damn JJ Watt school dance commercial again (and I love JJ Watt) I will take Bill Hicks' advice:

That's pretty fucked up/malicious du. I mean it's one thing to tell someone to shut the fuck up and tell them to stop posting but it's another to wish death upon them.

I agree, but I also like that this post came immediately after nicelynice's Bill Hicks video.
