I think that's a huge problem with pet owners, in that they only think of what is convenient for the owner. Owning a pet comes with responsibility...now how much attention does a cat need?

For cats it's really best to have two of a similar age. They will play with each other and will actually in my experience get more friendly with people if there's another cat buddy around. I also make time every day to play with the cats with string/toys/laser pointer/whatever. Cats actually do need attention contrary to popular belief, especially if you don't let them outside (not a good idea in a US city).

No need we already have 2.

I have no idea what kind of jacket I want for this fall. A TOJ MA-1 would be nice, but I don't particularly wish to wait until next fall to receive it.

1st world problems.

In other news - you guys should really check out the Thurston Bros. thread. I don't know how many of you know about the traditional leather jacket companies, but Aero is right up there with the best, and most iconic, UK makers, like Lewis leathers. I don't think that they've done the same amount of outreach to the fashion community, and so they don't have high profile collaborations like the Lewis Leathers x Junya Watanabe one, but they are really legit, and he prices are about as good as leather jackets of that quality get. Part of the problem is that the Thurston Bros. site doesn't really appeal to fashionheads, and is not really that well laid out for purchases, and the pictures are not as good as that on Japanese sites like Mushman's:

For example, this A-1 jacket:

in nearly identical to this:

But the pictures in the one are just more appealing.

I'm invested in this particularly affiliate because I feel that we need a really legit leather jacket store on our roster. I'm going to call in and order my own jacket (Aero Fontana cafe racer in midnight blue, with silver Talon bell pull zippers.) later today, if they are open.

Re: Thurston Bros.: Does anyone here actually own a piece by a brand they carry? Maybe the twinned forces of TOJ and the Dark Lord Cartel have chased all the traditionalists back to their mountaintop garages. I have a Schott, but it's from the 60s, so it's irrelevant.

I do, though nothing from Aero, yet. I think that the marketing teams for a lot of these companies have got to step up their game. Aero jackets are ridiculous in person, but there are not any cool editorial pieces in any major fashion periodical, that I can remember.

Marketing is not easy, you either have some very creative in house or you have it done externally. And I don't know whether there is compliance involved outside of meeting requirements set.

I agree, alot of the repro guys who run / work / operate these stores and businesses sorta come across as huge nerds, they probably dont take this stuff into consideration as they are focusing on the clothing game above all else. There is a lot of potential thats untapped.

I like the look of those J106s, but pretty sure I am not the right person to wear one.
