post #104776 of 109053

@cyc wid it @t3hg0suazn @canstyleace  thanks so much for the recs!  Huge list but i'm gonna try and see if i can do some of these :)  

 

Any SF folks have tips for  live music venues?  Bars/pubs that play good music - jazz, blues, rock etc.

 

i'll try and stop by MAC and unionmade.  

 

Another RFT: after a year of all out prints i'm starting to feel like i want to do some "warm minimalism" that @dieworkwear has been describing.  what to do with the whole cupboard full of florals though:violin:

Is anyone else having trouble adding items to their basket from the LN-CC sale list? Or are all the items I want marked as low stock but actually sold out :facepalm:

Basically, I hate walking.  I will stand.  Or run.  Walking is the most inefficient way to get from point A to point B.  You can get sweaty for no reason (and I hate sweating in streetclothes - if you are going to sweat, do it in gym clothes), and it's maddeningly slow.  Also, after a bit, your back and knees start to hurt.  In short, it is both inefficient, and sucks.  I used to leave it behind in cities, but at this age, I don't give a fuck.  In fact, in American cities, I often order one to be sent to my hotel room, and then just UPS it home.

Damn, can't argue with that. Scooters are also fun, fuck it.

A lot of the jazz around here centers around the summer and fall jazz festivals. Yoshis can be good year-round, but you have to check their schedule. They're a bit more upscale and posh though, which may or may not be the kind of environment you're going for. It's a Japanese restaurant with an accompanying jazz venue. Sometimes they have big acts come through, like Ahmad Jamal.

The Mission District has a bunch of clubs along Mission Street, between 18th and 22nd Street. Mostly divey-kind of places. I don't know if I'd recommend these kinds of spots to a tourist, but if you like divey kind of clubs, I like the Make Out Room. It's really small, but the music is good and they have cheap drinks.

They do offer Chinese breakfast items too, but I usually get the shredded chicken noodles (dry). Comes with shredded chicken, wontons, noodles and broth on the side. Their duck leg one is probably more well known, but less consistent.

i think i have been there http://www.yelp.com/biz/hai-ky-mi-gia-san-francisco for pho

yea idk, kids need comfort not high end fashion. i think carpe diem did some kids stuff as well. i'd venture to guess its more of a special order thing but who knows.

Yeah, I hear what you're saying. I had to have a little self intervention with regards to my recent spending habits. I probably won't go so far as to put myself on some sort of No Kop pledge, but I want to try to limit purchases for the remainder of the year to replace something else that's worn out.

Glad you liked it! Let me know if there was anything that you felt was lacking.

I have four kids, including a three year old boy,  I have no idea wtf he does with his shoes, but he fucks things them up in crazy ways, and it only takes a couple of months.  Those boots would be completely fucked in a week.  I think that I am hard on my clothes, but I have nothing on a pre-schooler.  Nothing.

 

Most of what he wears are loose canvas pants and jeans, and then like, sweatpants.  Jersey tee shirts, and occasionally, a sweater.  

 

The girls would do better.  But seriously, what seven year old girl wants to look like a zombie killer?  A princess zombie killer, maybe.  In pink goth ninja outfits.

Saw this guy downtown, pretty unusual for Uppsala to say the least

No vis: Ridiculously big goldchain, ridiculously big gucci-glasses

And yeah walking is both boring and slow, pretty much the same reason I got my longboard (though it got stolen last summer so now I just walk/bike like everyone else)

I completely agree, i cannot imagine kids wearing those items and not destroying them. Also comfort comes into play, kids need stuff that they can play in and not have to break in. But then again maybe its the intention? If this were a1923 then it would definitely be the case.

Lets just all be relieved that Lenny Kravitz can dress his children in ma+ if he has any little ones.

I'm sure Fok knows, but a lot of companies will produce things just to get press. It's not really a serious line.

Bespoke shoemaker G.J. Cleverley recently did a Kingsman slipper for Mr. Porter (Kingsman meaning the movie). It's a $650 slipper and there's a huge Kingsman logo on the toe, which is ridiculous. I don't think there were that many produced, however, and I don't think it's something actually intended to be sold for profit. Everyone involved will take some kind of loss on the production, but it's made to help raise the profile of Cleverley, Porter, and the Kingsman film. It's probably cheaper than the usual ads and affiliate marketing dollars companies have to spend for these things.

Or take something a little more relatable, like when KFC does some ridiculous bacon stuffed fried chicken sausage burger. They're not actually intending for that many people to order it. They're using it as a way to generate publicity.
