Surprised it's taken this long.

...I tried on a BBS leather (I don't usually like BBS) and would have happily walked out the door in it had I also been carrying 5 grand in cash.

I think therein lies the problem. I've often thought about trying something like Yohji, but you can barely find something used for like $400. That's a pretty high risk proposition for most people.

What if I told you that margarine is often not vegan.

Toaster ovens are for single people to cook their Stouffer's French Bread Pizza. They are not good at nor should they be considered for the purpose of preparing toast.

This was a harmless anime chat that wasn´t gonna extend itself more than any other derail this thread has seen.

Fair point. There have been derails from talking about fashion and I have not been bothered because I was more interested in those derails than anime talk, maybe because I have never been an anime fan. I think I think my comment was just a passive aggressive knee jerk reaction to Brad's whining.

My parents use their toaster oven to heat up snacks from the local Indian grocery store which makes fresh snacks. I thought they were crazy, but those cutlets taste pretty good after being toaster oven'd even though they are 3 days old!

hmm this strikes me as excessive unless by "trying" you mean going out to buy at retail ... then again it's not an unreasonable misconception since LVR has preorders up and nearly 3k for a linen vest lol

all those stores are so boring though, there are a handful of really good places across the world with probably Eclaireur being one of the best

I was really impressed with Bloomingdales in SF. The Bloomingdales around here are just overpriced Michael Kors made in China crap that ends up going on super clearance. I also really like MAC, not sure which location I went to. Still kicking myself that I forgot to go to Maas when I was out there. Next time, I hope.

If there are like, 30 posts in a row, I would do just that.  We did it with food (general) and donuts (specific).

Shoefitr has been around forever and is pretty impressive - but for some reason, they never turned it into an app, they have focused on B2B and finding online stores to use the software.  For example : http://www.runningwarehouse.com/Nike_Zoom_Elite_7_QS/descpage-NE7QSM1.html

 

(click on the little blue and green shoe on the right side of the screen)

 

If shoefitr decided to use their database for a phone app - it would be the most useful thing

@GDL I'll have to check that out. Thanks.
I've only really seen little self mad spread sheets that generally only deal with a small number of brands. I haven't looked at the asphalt gold app in any kind of detail yet.

@bigskipp all I know is my wife is vegan and she uses "margarine", something called earth balance. She uses a lot of stuff that I would cinsider suspect though.

EDIT: yeah so the above sneaker matrix app is all just nike/Adidas/reebok etc. not even common projects.

Love that book. Tea and two slices, right?

We briefly discussed it in the "Let's eat 100k slices of bread in 2014" thread, but ultimately it was too much of a derail and we decided it belonged in the kitchen appliances sub-forum.

IIRC @sq4you made a luxe sneakers sizing matrix at some point. No app AFAIK.

Speaking of which, I have an internal struggle raging over whether to buy another pair of overpriced sneakers. On the one hand, they are objectively awesome, I know I'll wear them, and I don't own any blue sneakers. On the other hand, I only found out they existed maybe yesterday, they're objectively overpriced even on sale, and I already have the same shoes in two other colorways.

Have disabled email-notifications, but having every thread with unread posts listed seems so convenient I assumed that's how everyone did it.


I use subs, but I'm in a habit of just going to my profile and getting to my threads using "Your recent activity"

Tried on some buttero sneakers the other day and decided I don't really like luxe/baller sneakers. Chucks, Stans, sk8 his, etc do it for me I think. Or maybe I'm just convincing myself since they're like a quarter of the price? 

 

Also, lol:

Accepted a seller's price on grailed and I was waiting to pay but I got no reply. I keep making offers and sending messages but it turns out he sold it to a consignment shop. frown.gif

For people who are selling and specifically shipping a lot, this service might be of interest. People seem to like it: http://www.shyp.com
