Speaking of Japanese denim (welcome back to 2000 & late), I don't think this was posted outside of the Self Edge thread, and it's a worthwhile read even beyond the resident denim nerd faction. It also includes Kiya's Rick Owens story.

I was really bored Sunday and my Visvim virgils were looking really dry and pale after a year of wear with no treatment, so I wanted to put a coat of wax or something on it. Long story short I didn't have any proper shoe shit to do it with since I left it at home with my parents when I moved out, so I ended up putting a coat of bag balm on it and am actually really pleasantly surprised with how well it worked. Darkened the leather from a pale tan to a medium brown and it looks "healthy" without having that gross shine. Anyways, point of the story is that bag balm will solve everything.
Yeah, it actually will (i don't know if you're joking). I actually had to buy a tin because of saddle sores when I first started doing a hard commute on my bike a few years back and now I always keep a tin around for scrapes / dry hands.
Our man GDL just hit 30k posts, so to celebrate there is a super special SF discount on NMWA. This is a good chance to jump on the new Schneider drops in particular (or Buttero, or Porter bags,. or Inis Meain or, or or or .....) so I wouldn't sleep on it. Basically the lowest prices on any of this stuff you'll see until 5 months from now when sales hit and stock is low.
The Allotment Store sent me sz34 relaxed fit instead of sz34 slim fit Siki Im jeans. I want to just exchange them but their site shows they only have a sz 36 available and those are also listed as slim fit so I'm thinking they mislabeled them in the first place. :/
I usually check the bill, and will tell the waiter if they undercharged. You do know that that dude will probably have to eat the difference otherwise, right? I also tip well and try to be a good customer. And yes, I did this when I was a broke ass student as well.
In this case, I wouldn't even have given the matter a second thought.
I think that not being an asshole is pretty much the only way of not turning out miserable person.
Ok, my analogy sucked as well, since, with most menu items, I'd know the price of the food that I ordered and could notice if an error was made (which has never happened to me btw). All I meant is that I wasn't looking for a deal and had no idea the product was priced incorrectly, especially since I generally don't look at this specific brand. I was very cordial with the dude, but began to wonder what others have experienced in similar situations, and whether or not there a business obligation to honor the price.
