I had this done. My surgeon did not really explain to me the extent of the light sensitivity - cover your windows, duct tape them, and then cover them again, and expect to be out of commission for awhile.  The guy told me I should maybe take one day off work just in case, and I ended up being out for a week completely blind. I was pretty pissed at him. It was well worth it in the end, though. Good luck!

Thanks - my uncle is the surgeon and I'm staying with him for the next couple weeks, so I expect good care smile.gif cleared my schedule for a full seven days to give myself time to recover.

I removed the eye protectors one hour after the operation and had people for dinner a few hours after that, next day I was pretty much back to normal. I guess it varies a lot.

Did you have LASIK, or PRK? The recovery time for the former is more typically what you described. During PRK they remove a whole section of the cornea, rather than just making a slit, thus the painful recovery.

After walking six blocks to my bus stop due to "civil unrest" on the train stations here in SF, I witnessed some next level? waywt action. Dude propped up a point & shoot camera, balanced on top of a venti Starbucks coffee cup, on top of a metal rail. Backdrop? Wall of disgruntled commuters waiting in a line for the next bus. Proceeded to take 5-6 shots of himself in front of the line in various poses, shouting gibberish the entire time and walked off into the morning rush. Mind blown.

I was about to buy some solid white sk8-hi's - I don't any of the rest of that look, can I still escape douchehood?

can anyone recommend some good looking, reasonably priced hidden placket shirts? went through yoox/farfetched already. Thanks

 

 

post #104258 of 109053
man, that color of the Schneider base shirt is still the best, too bad so few were made. Other hidden placket options: Calvin Klein Collection, if you can find anyone selling the old Uniqlo x Undercover ones those were ok quality.

Wore that blue base shirt the other day satisfied.gif

COS has nice hidden placket shirts

I have, you can see some things I made on my tumblr. Things got slightly out of hand but it's definitely rewarding!

I would suggest to start here: http://www.cutterandtailor.com

Have you handled it in real life? I have it in both non-placket and placket version. It's much less impressive in person.

The color is actually very faded looking at its not a solid color'd fabric like it looks like. It's actually more of a very small check pattern.

I mean it's a cool shirt don't get me wrong, but it wasn't the magical water-like fabric in the lookbook ;p Or do you disagree Nations
post #104262 of 109053
I'd agree the colors are not as impressive as the lookbook when indoors. But when outdoors with good natural light it really does "pop" like it does in the lookbook.

It's also really soft and just comfortable to wear.
post #104263 of 109053
Yeah it is really soft and comfortable to wear smile.gif And yar from a distance and in natural light it looks sexy as well.

It's a good shirt, but man that picture in the lookbook was unreal good. Which it turned out to be haha.

it might matter more since you actually live in california, but i kind of wouldn't worry about it if you're not doing the rest of that stuff. oh, and I am wearing skate hi's right now.
