eating lots of calories will make you fat. it's not about whether or not it's a fat (although its easier to overeat fat than say protein)

Funny, was just browsing the site. I'd probably enjoy looking at everything, but none of it is going to be a steal. Much of the suiting looks like it's half price, but I'd be more inclined to check out the shirting and knitwear. I could go for this shirt, for summertime weekend wear:

Ugh there is this thing I want on sale that I want but don't need (more white hightops). I keep goan back to the website and the fuckn things r still there, like a puppy in the window of a pet shop and I am looking at it and saying "hey I have like six puppies at home and don't need u" and it keeps looking so appealing and etc and I keep thinking "well maybe", and here I am visiting 2x a day, this thing I don't need. Ugh

Saw the white high balenciagas still up on sneakerboy and was kind of surprised of myself when I after a few moments decided that: "Nah I have my B&N's, I don't need another pair of white hi's"

The Pros and Cons of Going Vegetarian (from The Onion)
Quote:
While the vast majority of Americans are meat eaters, USDA statistics show that a growing number of Americans are becoming vegetarians and vegans to adopt healthier diets, ensure food safety, and practice ethical eating habits. Here are some of the pros and cons of going vegetarian:

PROS
  • Are still allowed to smell, feel, and look at meat
  • Get to declare “I can’t eat this!” while throwing a meat dish on the floor
  • Tofu can be substituted in any non-vegetarian recipe calling for bland, flavorless chunks
  • Help replace environmentally harmful livestock industry with the environmentally harmful agriculture industry
  • Can enjoy unadulterated pleasure of slowly masticating bitter leaves and grasses
  • Fewer heart attacks than last year
  • Rewards points
  • Subtle nods of approval from every passing animal
  • Increased energy for complaining about how shitty life is now


CONS
  • Beef, pork, and chicken all contain meat, and you will not be allowed to eat them
  • Have to perfect the forced smile that accompanies choking down tempeh
  • May lose the weight, high cholesterol, and saturated fats you worked so hard for over the years
  • Get constantly pestered with questions from fascinated acquaintances
  • Will be forced to resign as vice president of your local Gravy Club
  • Could become the kind of person who asks questions about soups
  • No matter how many vegetables you scarf down, you will never get your picture mounted on the wall of a steakhouse
  • Many animals not slaughtered for consumption could go on to live long lives filled with heartbreak and disappointment
  • Can go back to eating meat at any time without any consequence whatsoever
Disclosure: I'm vegetarian

Anyone recommend some luxe heritage knitwear, for lack of a better term? I'm not looking for something to be worn with a tie, though. I'm thinking more along the lines of something a fisherman might wear, but couldn't afford to wear.

I'm burned out on Inverallan and Inis Meain, so don't recommend those. My latest purchase was Margaret Howell's indigo linen cable knit, as an example.

You thought about Minotaur or Nonnative fisherman style knits? There's always the CM Italian brands too.

I don't like CM/ SWD distinctions, but to the degree they're helpful, here are some CM-ish suggestions.

Stock might be completely sold out by now, but Berk in London's Burlington Arcade has been going out of business for a while, and they recently put all of their stock on heavy, heavy clearance. They hold some of the best, remaining Scottish knitwear brands in the world. A friend of mine has written about them and Ballantyne here:

Skipping in Burlington Arcade

An Obit for Ballantyne

(Berk's stuff is made by Barrie, now owned by Chanel. Ballantyne's machines have been smashed up and the name has been sold. Unfortunately, the new Ballantyne stuff I've seen is not really worth the money, but the old stuff is nice. Old stuff is also sold at Berk. Or at least was, don't know if they're still open. Shop could be completely shuttered at this point).

Here are some photos of a Berk cardigan being worn by a member here.

Note, Berk's stock is sized in UK sizing. So the knitwear is sized by the actual garment's chest size, not the size of the intended wearer's chest.

I also really like William Lockie. I bought a 4-ply cashmere cable knit sweater from them last year and it's held up really well. Just placed an order for a few more, actually. They'll take custom orders if their current sizing doesn't fit you, but custom sweaters are of course not returnable. Haven't tried anything else but this cashmere cable knit (model is Chirnside on their Heather Wallace store), but I imagine everything else is quite good.

Some (boring) photos:

Lastly, I bought a chunky lambswool shawl collar cardigan made by Scott & Charters a couple of years ago. Also think the quality there is really good. They make these for many of the more popular "SWD" brands you see around - Epaulet, Ovadia & Sons, etc. They're also stocked under their own label at NMWA and East Dane.
