Gdl's new store looks like it'll have some pretty great stuff. All kopped out for a while though, so probably won't be able to afford much when it comes online.

Spent my evening reading all 400+ posts (357 of which are some form of "Good Luck" or "Nice Stuff"), and it looks like it will be a fantastic site. That said, I really wonder how much of the stuff will be "affordable". I know that GDL has talked about having a variety of stuff for different walks of life, but suits for $2k, dress shoes for $800, and sweaters for $500 is pretty steep.

Isn't that pretty much the cost threshold for most quality CM clothing? If you look at stores like the Armoury, that's pretty in line with what's to be expected. Will probably buy one of those next level handmade shirts, just to see in person.

cost threshold for most quality CM clothing only if you buy things at retail. if you're a SFer you look for items 70% off then lowball and ask for 90% off.

That fallacy really doesn't apply to biology.  You can apply the same evolutionary adaptiveness principles to all sorts of things, such as food (i.e. people everywhere eating traditional meals are overwhelmingly healthier than those eating a industrialized Western diet, leading to the conclusion that "natural" diets and whole foods are better, at least until we can figure out why), sleep patterns, even weight training (barbell training is far more effective than machine training because it runs the body through its most "natural" range of motion).

 

Heavily-padded shoes absorb shock from impact.  Barefoot, that shock would be distributed throughout the leg, and primarily absorbed by the knee, so if you have knee issues the padding is a good thing.  For a lot of people, though, the padding can also screw up your gait when running or walking (if you heel-strike while running, a pretty easily solution is to switch to a shoe like the Free or go barefoot) and prevents a lot of the smaller stabilizer muscles in the foot from doing much of anything.

 

I'm not really saying that everyone should go without shoes, just to be careful of those running shoes with like an inch of padding.  Just because it feels squishy and comfy standing still in the store doesn't mean it's better for you.

 

Edit: I'm also totally biased because I studied evolutionary anthropology as one of my majors in undergrad.

 

Seems like a lot of broscience, honestly. Exercise advice is one of the softest fields of knowledge out there. I'm not saying you are wrong or right, I just don't think approaching the subject in such certainty--nor appealing to nature--is the right argument to take here. It's a closed argument for an open, grey topic of debate.

 

After all, it's a fact that shoes increase top level athletic performance.

I hate split toes but seriously considering the vass scotch norwegers.

The shirts are very reasonable but they are proper formal shirts. Don't care bout no knits.

for hating split toes you're going with about as pronounced a split toe as there is. really like my AE delrays (7y+, 2 resoles and still going)
