post #95776 of 109053

Ordered a CDG wallet and some other stuff from End. I just got an email from FedEx saying they need to know the composition of the wallet so they can "pre-clear" it with customs. The invoice simply says "wallet", but for the CP's I ordered on the same invoice it says "synthetic leathers" instead of genuine/italian leather.

Anybody run in to this before? Should I just say "synthetic leather" or Italian leather?

It's from AW04 collection, described by that fellow you've quoted a pic of as having "the illustration and letters imprinted in a shade of light blue on a white tissue paper cotton, which highly resemble an old scripture..."


well he's always used silly or odd or at times interesting texts printed onto garments. example, the "For Sale" and "Not For Sale" on the SS13 jackets referring to near-bankruptcy that almost forced the sale of the company but found refuge in the arms of gentle investors who've allowed him to continue on.

Or this one from SS00 which i think is a great quote:

“전에 한 직원에게 ‘센스가 좋다는 것은 무엇을 의미하는 것인가’ 라는 질문을 받은 적이 있습니다. 나는 그때 ‘글쎄, 안다는 것이 아닐까’ 라고 대답했습니다. 사물을 안다는 것은 매우 고통스러운 일이죠. 지적으로 되면 될수록 타인 혹은 자기 내부의 자신과 충돌이 일어나기 때문입 니다.’멋’이란 이런 일종의 고통이랄까, 안다는 것에서 오는 당혹함에서 발생하는 미묘한 표현이라고 생각합니다. 제가 목표로 하는 옷이란 알기 시작한 사람들에게 무엇인가를 전하고 싶다는 마음에서 출발했기 때문에 모르는 사람, 고통이 없는 사람에게는 전혀 필요하지 않습니다.”


"An employee of mine once asked me ‘what it means to have good taste’. I replied, ‘perhaps, it is a knowing’. knowing something is a very painful thing. The more you intellectualize it, it causes conflict between you and others or you and your inner self. As such, I think having good ‘taste’ is a form of pain, a subtle expression that arises from the dilemma of ‘knowing’." I began making clothing with the desire to create something for those who 'know', so my creations are completely unnecessary for those who do not 'know', or are not in pain.


I roughly translated this from the Korean interview in which the quote was said, which was already a rough translation of his words. Might not make 100% sense but I think you can get the general idea of what he means.

Really glad to see that the SW&D Bagel Talk is back. That means that I have about six weeks to get some good tipping stories ready before that topic becomes in vogue again.

bagels make me feel like shit. That many carbs that early in the morning is just death to your energy levels for the whole day.

I eat a bagel for lunch and 12-4 is my happy time.

we have a bagel place in my small town that was made famous by Regis Philman, the lox and boiled bagels are the best I've ever had.

cajun bagels FTW.

Bagels are amazing but I don't really eat them anymore frown.gif

I used to get a Garlic Bagel with Onion Cream Cheese, with Bacon and red onions on it. The breath situation was rough.

I know my opinion doesn't carry much weight here but I think it's crass. The writing by itself is silly, but putting a pseudo religious tinge on it is...bizarre. But I guess that's what appropriation is...

If you could create this in a thick (competition weight) sashiko fabric in any neutral or blue color (I will paint over it!), I would totally be in.  It would need to have the thick, reinforced stitching with thick twill taping on all the stress points that is actually used in (jiujitsu and judo) competition gis.  

 

I am essentially looking for a Trucker jacket (I have a leather one which fits perfectly, and though it is not cotton, it has the same heft that I am looking for) that could, if need be, be used in hand-to-hand combat.  Yes, that tough.

That's pretty broad.  There is a big difference between optic white leather and cream or beige suede, both in terms of the color and the color saturation.  In general, I like to wear something contrastingly dark, and with deeply saturated colors.  

 

One of my go to belts is a leather belt from Jean shop that was dyed navy.  When I first got it, it was so dark that it was essentially purple and shiny.  I washed it in hot water, which gave it a nice matte, and then I wringed it out, which left it with a used look (incidentally, I've seen a lot of "artisanal" brands use this same technique),  and there are some places where the color came out more.  It looks amazing against the brass buckle, and I think that it's the one belt that everyone who has ever noticed has really liked.  And it's not really an in your face belt, nor is it something like my painted Number (n)ine belt, with the hook closure, which is just eyecatching.  

 

Dark blues go well with white, grey, other, lighter blues, browns, creams - essentially anything except for washed black.

Hehe.  I wonder how many others reading this get that here.  Really though, gi chokes are not my strength, since most of my training is in no-gi BJJ for MMA.  This is the variation that I used most often, though usually I use it from full mount, and turn it into a trachea choke, which is immediately painful, since the entire arm and shoulder is driving into the throat.  If you don't keep your base or snake him out, though, you can get swept:  

 

 

On a tangent - why is it that bicep slicers are used so infrequently in MMA, where they are completely legal.  And unlike, say, a calf compression submission, it doesn't seem to open you up to anything.

But the answer is: a lot.  I haven't done it yet though.
