Man, should have just stock with the boxer briefs. The Q82 Superfine are great.

Loner's interests include:
- Seeing cool cities and walking around them
- Seeing dramatic and awesome landscapes of all varieties
- Eating outrageously good food and trying new dishes
- Meeting new people and having fun
- Visiting schools and talking to people there (easy to organise)
- Playing musical instruments that are difficult to acquire in Australia
- Things I haven't done before

At the moment, it is cheapest for me to fly into San Francisco or Chicago, and looking at flights around the USA leads me to believe that getting from city to city would not be hugely expensive.


I've considered hitting up the following places:

- San Francisco (cause I land there)
- Chicago (because I know people there)
- Montreal (because it looks cool and very different from the desert I live in)
- Colorado (for some reason I want to see it, looks beautiful)
- Yellow Stone (no idea how feasible this is to do)

NYC is currently not on the list because accommodation looks prohibitively expensive at this point. Does anyone here have any quick recommendations I could explore, look into or research? I've found looking at places like wikitravel really helpful for understanding how to get around a place, but very unhelpful for understanding what a place has to offer (outside of food and shelter). Would appreciate all help/advice/criticism/etc

Have you considered Vancouver? It definitely has the walkability, the landscapes, the food, etc.

I haven't tried the Sunspels, but I get really annoyed when the legs start to roll, so I'm giving no legs a try.

I have not. Will look into it - sounds good.

I'm packing for my move to San Francisco from Singapore and I realized that like 90% of what I'm bringing is from Uniqlo. I also need nicer outerwear and slip ons.

If you're just bringing your existing clothes over then you will be woefully unprepared for the coldness that is SF.

On a different note, this is what I was greeted with when I came to the forums uhoh.gif

has anyone tried buying fabric in bulk and making their own t-shirts?

post #82432 of 109053
Charly's girlfriend makes t-shirts for him. Ask him about it.

i think if you wear leather motorcycle jackets but don't actually ride motorcycles, you look out of place and like a tryhard... peepwall[1].gif



i don't think this about other clothing that was made for specific functions, though (e.g. boat shoes)

i think it has to do with motorcycle jackets being such uber distinct, detailed pieces of clothing

don't mean to offend i'm probs just not into fashion enough to understand why i'm wrong or w/e sorry

Do MMM oxfords / dress shoes in general fit like side zips or sneakers?
post #82437 of 109053
tried this on today


Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)



quality wasn't great (think not overly luxe heavyish wool) but interesting design and fit was great. remember seeing a bows fit a while back with a similar asymmetric button up/drape quality in a jacket/cardi he was wearing.

anyone seen pieces with similar qualities with a bit better quality/value offering?

I have a pair of shoes, the design of which I love, but have had serious problems with seams coming apart and the leather around the seams getting damaged. I'm considering commissioning someone to make a replica of them with a stronger seam or altered seam placement. Does anyone know where I could go for something like this?

hi

a reminder:

virtually all male clothing has a functional origin that has been abandoned by at least 99% of the people who wear it, such as:

-trench coat
-peacoat
-cowboy boot
-and related to that, the heel on your shoe (been horseback riding lately?)
-also baseball cap ("u r a fucking try hard, you wore a baseball cap!")
-assless chaps (okay maybe not that)
-yawn
-etc.

.....I will concede that it would be odd to wear a football helmet around town while getting groceries, pumping gas, or saying "hey I will have a mocchiato with whatever that pastry is over there behind teh lemon bar", stuff like that.
