post #95222 of 109053
i have been obsessing a bit over following rakuten / sf / sz / sufu / ebay / grailed to hunt down some new stuff to revitalise and redo my wardrobe and while i have spent very little money it has seriously become a weird obsessive thing for me and is stressing me out as i kind of hate my current wardrobe and how i dress and most of the pieces i have and feel i need a lot of new stuff

but now i am so confused as to what i want to dress like and i feel like i can appreciate a number of different aesthetic directions i could take how i want to dress except i don't know what i would feel comfortable in and what is or isn't beyond my (financial) means

i think i just want to get like two nice knits in charcoal/grey with unfinished seams and some kind of cold-weather friendly coat that is not too expensive that makes me feel like i can hide from the world and some guidis and just wear that all the time forever and quit internet fashion forever

We have something similar, we just put sugar and marmalade on them.

It's basically fried dough with octopus bits covered in okonomiyaki sauce, mayo, seaweed and bonito flakes.

... It tastes better than it sounds. Maybe not with sugar and marmalade though.

Sounds nice.

The Scandinavian version is basically pancake dough.

I'm offering a reward to anyone who can help me locate the username(s) and whereabouts of a member who is soliciting products from vendors for reviews, telling them that he is part of the Styleforum editorial staff.  His name is, as far as we can tell, Andrej Nestorov.  We're coming for you, man.

 

Edit: more information.  He is based in Skopje, Macedonia, and seems to favor a fairly relaxed style - GANT rugger, denim jeans, etc...  \

 

Cheers,

 

Fok.

I thought it was obvious as a joke, but apparently I suck as a comedy writer.

Well, I don't know his IP, or even his username.  He may never have posted in Styleforum, for all I know.  I mean, if he did actually post a review, instead of just scamming for product, he would be way dumb.  But he may have tried to flip stuff on B&S.  More and more vendors are reporting him though.  The problem with these guys is that they can't seem to stop.  The more times you do something, the closer you get to getting caught.  It's pretty dumb.  At some point, you hit a point of diminishing returns, but only the smart guys know to quit while ahead.

 

I grew up in a town with 8 prisons, and a lot of my friends became prison guards or cops.  A lot of people are in prison for crimes that speak to limited abilities and lack of impulse control.  Even the "smart" guys, who are in for white collar, non-violent, non-drug related, offenses, are usually in because of really poor judgement and the inability to stop.  Cops are not, as a group, the smartest people.  It's not much like t.v.  Usually, the suspect is obvious.  It's the idiot that robbed the neighbourhood convenience store, again.  But they still catch guys who are not these more obvious morons.  And guys get caught because they start to take unnecessary risks, or can't walk away from something when the risk increases to an unacceptable degree. 

 

I think that counterfeiting is one of the crimes in this category.  It's a catch-22 crime.  You can counterfeit $1 all day long, and you'll still get nowhere.  But once you start with the bigger bills, you get the feds on you, and you still have to distribute these bills.  So you need a distribution system.  Now, anyone who has run any type of business knows that there are a lot of incompetent, lazy, workers, out there.  When you are a criminal, the pool of good workers is rather small.  The difference is that if you are a counterfeiter, those shitheads are probably the ones who are going to get you nicked.  And the longer you do this, the more attention it's going to attract, and the more evidence is going to accumulate, all leading to you, the main shithead.  The problem is that the setup can be rather expensive, so you have to be at it for long enough to break even, and then go into profit.  Think of how many $100, or $50s, or even $20s, have to be put into circulation, for you to  make $75K in profits, which is the industry average for a lot of technical jobs.  Doesn't take too much calculation to figure out that crime really is not particularly profitable.  And yet, idiots keep on doing dumb shit, and going away, doing hard time, for amounts that might buy you one leather jacket, on sale.

I'm picturing a scenario similar to this.
