Oh berkeley is great as are parts of oakland which is definitely up and coming... and marin is beautiful if you count that as east bay (not sure to be honest my grasp of geography is pretty weak), but don't knock san mateo its actually pretty awesome. Downtown is pretty badass and has some of the best asian food norcal has to offer. Amazing ramen, my favorite chinese restaurant and the best boba in the bay oh and good sushi too from what I understand (I don't eat seafood, but my family/friends love a few spots).

I've spent enough time in and around Oakland to never want to live there - even the nice areas, as they're surrounded by wasteland. Berkeley hills maybe and I went to Cal. Walnut Creek too far. San Mateo >>>> Oakland for buying a home, especially if you're raising a family - even if you're not.

T, FTFY. The Bay Area is a nightmarish landscape of suburbia, office parks, and highways. The only nice parts are so exorbitantly priced that living there requires you *and* your spouse to have won the acquisition/IPO lottery. That I will one day have to move there to further my career is a constant source of dread.

All american cities are pretty damn ugly. NYC being the ugliest, filthiest, and stinkiest of all. But if you wanna tread on the hamster wheel that's where you gotta go.

Was that via Rakuten? I've had similar problems (with a different company). I think basically they see a foreign name and cancel the order. In my case, they said the same thing as was said to you (also despite my Japanese credit card), then told me to reorder with paypal. So I did, and then they cancelled the order again and told me that they only accepted paypal for foreign orders, and did I have a credit card?!!! I said that I'd ordered with a Japanese credit card in the first place but that they had cancelled it. Then they just stopped communicating...

 

PS: I also have a Uniqlo winter coat - but it's an old one from the 2009 Kiminori Morishita collab that I bought off someone on here. I don't really need much more for a Tokyo winter.

I knew it!  You sang for the Met, didn't you?

I am surrounded my music these days too.  My wife is the choir director and with Christmas coming, I am inundated with endless rehearsals of cantatas and chorales. 

 

Which operas did you perform in?  Did you sing Ferrando when the Met did Cosi fan tutte recently?  You must be a pretty big guy, to be able to sing tenor.  It always looks so difficult, but then I'm not chest size 150cm either. 

 

Not interested in talking about my past. Opera's been dead before we were born and size is secondary to efficiency.

CDW vests are incredible, but very puffy. Here's a nice Mt. Rainer one in similar style to CDW

And then the polar opposite here

Barbour used to make one, but now it seems like they all are zippered. Though the Lowerdale has a button placket over the zip.

And then Poler makes this one in three colors. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Thanks for all the suggestions. I'll poke around those brands. Except the Junya. I am neither baller nor interesting enough for Junya. laugh.gifshog[1].gif

pretty much everything about this post is at best personal opinion and at worst flat out wrong.

I like NYC a lot but it kinda wears on you after a while. I just got back from a few days in LA and I'm actually considering moving there for work.
