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
Yes there is absolutely a difference. My wife has a lot of hats. And there's a world of difference between a cheap hat and a well-made hat. It's not unlike the difference between something, say, by Margiela, and the quality of the H&M/Margiela collaboration. You might also want to try some English makers like Lock.
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.
Or just make up stuff about buying/ordering things...
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.
