I'm not a big fan of the Frankenstein look and he says it negates the functionality of the lower m65 pockets. I've wanted a Gibson ma1 forever tho and prices go up every year. I love the length on that thing
To a certain extent, many of the items made by brands like The Real McCoy’s, Buzz Rickson’s, and Levi’s Vintage Clothing are knockoffs that happen to be better made than the genuine articles. Would you consider such items to be simulacra of the originals? Can a repro ever be anything more than a very well made copy?
“Authenticity” doesn’t mean much to me. I just want “good”, in the sense of well-designed, well-constructed, long-lasting garments. My interest in military clothing stems from that. It’s not about macho, playing soldiers, anything militaristic. It’s the functionality, the design-solutions, the durability. Likewise workwear.
Military clothing is built to strict contract, but with the manufacturer cutting ever corner they can without violating the specifications. The finishing on a Rickson reproduction is exponentially superior to the finishing on most of the originals, and I’d much rather have a brand-new exact copy that’s more carefully assembled.
<- Snippet from the interview. It amuses me to no end that "authenticity" doesn't mean much to him. It isn't a consideration for me at all. Don't care who was first, just who makes the version that is most inline with what I want. If that's a new comer versus the originator? I'm down.
You'd be lucky to get 1,500 sf for that rent in NYC
Thats NY, not SF.

You can get 2500 sq.ft. in one of the best areas here for that money, I would love to see a 10k rental unit around here.

i've become increasingly uncomfortable having "angry transvestite" as a joke title and i think this conversation has kinda sealed the deal for me. @LA Guy can i please have it changed or removed entirely?
