The Hario Skerton. Get a modified one from orphan espresso. It wiggles less and produces a much more even grind

Don't get an electric blade grinder for coffee. They're great for spices tho

Maybe not a great example, I wear that blue wool h&mmm blazer fairly often and it still looks new / visually indistinguishable from the real thing.  My only gripe is that whatever they canvassed it with is sharp so it pokes you in the ribs sometimes.  Which I guess is actually a big gripe.

I think part of the 'joy' of owning nice slash nicely fitted clothes is being able to wear them. Of course there are a few things where you can't do this all the time (like tuxes), but I think the majority of one's wardrobe should be stuff that could be worn pretty often.

 

I'm trying to break my habit of being more 'consumerist' oriented and being more 'utilitarian' oriented. Nothing wrong with having nice stuff provided you use it. For instance, I rarely wear suits. I have 4 of them. I almost feel bad about it because I could go an entire year without wearing one of them.

I'm also not even close to being wealthy, so I try to pick carefully and buy things that I can 'get my moneys worth' with by actually using them.

 

Some of my favorite stuff I can't wear all the time, i.e. fur Raf shoes, bright orange shiny satin floral DVN shirt, etc. Basic things you can wear every day are nice, but once you have a few of them you start to ask why you're even bothering if you don't have anything else.  For 'safe' clothes I have a leather jacket, a inverallan and a stark and a few pairs of jeans and don't really need anything else. I don't understand people with fifty different heritage or epaulet or whatever items.

Exactly my point. It's totally fine to have a few of those, but if the majority of your closet is built up of that stuff, then...


There are always special occasion clothes slash fun clothes. My point was just that I don't see the point of spending like 90% of my money on things that I'll wear twice a year.

Jet has stacks of knits he hasn't even taken out of their packaging. They keep his closet insulated.

I have the camano grinder and really like it. It's a little more $$, but it's really durable and all metal/wood/glass instead of plastic.
