If the buyer and I can't agree on a price, I'll knock 10% off if they agree to skip eBay and just do a PP transaction. Works most of the time.

I'm looking for a pair of not-too-slim cropped linen pants for the summer, preferably charcoal/ black. Any suggestions? Price range runs up to maybe $500, though obviously lower is better...

Valhalla Cotton™ is pretty hard to grow to say the least. Seven months out of the year the ground is covered in ice and snow, but the hot spring blows over the crops of cotton. To make matters worse, the country is always at war. What the farmers do to grow this cotton is nothing short of amazing. The seeds germinate quickly, and as the plant matures, a cotton pod appears at the end of a long stalk. Harvesting denim is an exhausting, back-breaking work which can really only be done by hand and requires knowledge of the Overlords. When the pods are still babies the artisans use a specialized knife mounted on a handle of an oar to cut vertically over two or three sides of the pod. The cuts in pods eventually seep denim. Later, when the midnight sun rises 72 virgins work the night shift. They harvest denim by wrapping the fresh threads around a threshing oar. That's it. Oh, they use blue and white seeds for the color. In the picture below you can easily see the Valhalla Cotton™ with the blue and white color. I used computer enhancement so you can see a close up of this incredible denim. I had to use three computer systems to get the image that you are enjoying. Enjoy.

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/jakehimself/the-10-year-hoodie-built-for-life-backed-for-a-dec?ref=discover_pop

 

90$ for a sturdy 100% cotton hoodie made in the US, 10-year guarantee which means that if you get a rip or a seam comes loose within 10 year after purchase, they will pay for shipping both ways and patch it up (shipping only free for those in US though)

They look pretty nice, if someone here gets one be sure to post impressions smile.gif

Not sure about a mere 72 virgins worth of labour at this price point.
An electrochromatospectrograph should have been doable for the advertorial instead of this pedestrian CSI Houston business.

The assumption being that a company that only sells hoodies and provides free repairs can somehow remain solvent for 10+ years.

Tbf they sell some other cool stuff on their website too http://www.flintandtinderusa.com/

And it's all made 100% in the US, which I'm pretty sure more and more are interested in

 

But yes, there's obviously a chance they won't be around for another 10 years (still, 90$ for an apparently sturdy made in the US hoodie is still a solid price)

It's been just five months since we've started reading the tags in the underwear aisle.
It's in the decisions we make when things don't go as we hoped that champions are made.
No more excuses.
