Rumor has it that Sandro Kitchenaid doesn't even design for the label anymore.
Luckily I have a guy in SoHo make all my microwaves for me. He hand carves the buttons and everything.

True, but at sale prices quality still can't be beat. Those SoHo indie guys know they can charge a redic premium. The 2k difference is not a 2k difference. You know it. I know it. Everyone knows it. And you just know whenever they make some really fugly ass piece its going to get way more respect and a higher price tag just because it hasnt become the bandwagon yet.

The wattage, wavelength, and grade of plastic are way off on that particular model. I'm not even sure it has a beveled carousel, which is a necessity if you're even considering becoming a microwave enthusiast. Oh, and I'm pretty sure the pegs holding up that microwave are made from Taiwanese silicone. You really need Peruvian silicone if you're looking for quality. PM me and I'll set you straight.

Also, n00b question but how do I delete a post?
A grail is by definition something that is difficult to procure.

I had a Styleforum X Real-life day yesterday, I will share here.


I went to a reunion /  meet-and-greet / let's get together and pretend we rule the universe  event, at a very exclusive club.  Since American Pyscho is the official movie of styleforum, think of what they behaved like in the restaurant scene at the start, or in the lobby lounge talking about girls shutting up (when Bateman mentions the Wisconsin axe-murderer or something like that).


I am a humble creature with heart and soul, so I don't particularly relish these events, but one is duty-bound to put on a brave face. 


First, I need to deck out (MC) and I do.  Zegna Trofeo suit....Zilli tie....Brioni shirt...Brioni belt...Brioni socks...Lobb shoes....all matched to CDHagg levels of obsessiveness but without the Mr Moo ridiculously-over-the-top vulgarian nouveau-riche buffonishness.


I go, park my car and get out and walk towards the building. 


Just like in American Psycho, there is a homeless-guy sitting on a park bench, with his beautiful German Shepherd.  As I walk by, he says "You look nice!!" with a big smile. 

Do I pull a Patrick Bateman, tell him to get a job, stab him, and trample his dog to death?  No!  Even with my former full styleforum membership, I don't.   I just say "Thank you!"  and he gives me a big hearty friendly laugh!

People gaze admiringly at you all the time...women, ugly women, guys, trannies, CDHagg-like creatures....but it's aheartwarming when a shabby hobo with a gorgeous dog compliments you.


Next, the event...and it is American Psycho businesscard fest with the vengeance.

Because it was sponsored by a foreign company, there were shitloads of Euros there, and they tended to stick together.  I venture out to meet the Americans.


I nearly fainted!  THERE WAS A STANLEY VAN BUREN THERE!!  A gentleman who looked EXACTLY like Stanley van Buren.  I wish I could post a picture, maybe I'll post his linkedin photo to prove my point.  We do similar work, so he started talking in depth, all smiles and friendliness.  But I couldn't pay attention to anything he was saying, it was so eerie seeing Stanley van Buren staring at you in real-life.  I had to bite my tongue to stop laughing...who wouldn't want to start laughing at Stanley van Buren if they ever met Stanley van Buren!  He even had a Stanley van Buren style of dressing, maybe it's an American thing.  A Stanley van Buren physique, and Stanley van Buren way of standing...even when holding a glass.  Perhaps he was thinning a bit more on top than Stanley van Buren.  I had to be careful not to call him Stanley accidentally.


Anyways, I left a little earlier than the rest....these events are not my cup of tea.  I went home and we made late-night  pork and clams a la Alentejana....which I think Eason posted a photo eating in Macao for his birthday earlier!   The catering at the event was great...port and single malts were superb...but I prefer our home-made soul food.

Got it smile.gif

I guess the only thing that comes close is a BBS mudwashed leather from a while back. That was pretty cool.

I understand this mindset with a lot of footwear, but are you really saying you can't buy second-hand clothing?

Generally no

Have not for sometime now
