Not really. Crate had been popular on the board for years, but by 09 it had just fallen off the radar a bit. A lot of respected posters supported them (Whodini, Get Smart). The board beasted over their khakis (in 08?). More than a few affiliates carried them. They were never as popular as APC, but had a strong following and a good reputation. Maybe their quality has declined, but they obviously put out a good product at one point. Probably the reason expectations for the Farinelli's collab were high. But hey, GROUPTHINK!!!!

Jet this is your life every day c/d?

Nice- yeah well, ex-pat girls are easy All you have to do is not be pathetic/awkward/weird like all the other guys and BAM you're at the top of the pile.

I've got a Crate gingham shirt, and the quality to price ratio is really good. No complaints at all, I'm planning on buying more of their shirts(since thats what my wardrobe is lacking, decent shirts I can wear without trying to baby.)

So hard to choose what to wear to a club... Assume you have every color of pants and shirt, what do you wear? Last week was already purple pants/white shirt/purple tie.

no shirt / body glitter? (3)

That sounds like a vote for waxed black jeans to me

Either is a great idea, though the white will prevent you from straying into the milieu of the Princes of Wales, of whom you're no fan

Aside from that, I think your usual aesthetics will be totally appropriate. And if you're visiting Ghana, look me up

That Mauro quote was the best thing to happen to my monitor all week.

Kicking Mule Workshop is the worst money I've ever spent. The rocker cut is terrible.

So I'd been wanting some bright ass sneakers for summer. I'd been debating between bright yellow Common Projects, and object dyed bright green sneakers on yoox. I almost bought the green shoes 3 or 4 times, but could never pull the trigger. I finally decided to go with the green ones today, and when I go to yoox to buy them I see they have been marked down $80 from just earlier this morning, plus I found a 10% off code online which saved me another $12.

Here are the shoes if anyone wants to see them (the green ones): http://www.yoox.com/item.asp?tskay=3...d10=44205087HC
