Alternatively, you may loose interest when an amount of time passes before the grail piece finds you as by that time you may pick up something else nicer.

this is why that word is meaningless especially here. not much of a grail if you lose interest, now is it teacha.gif

I see that, but some times I use grail as in rarity of the item not to whom specifically. : )
I have to work on my writing still

Yeah grail's not the right word.  Don't think there is a word for what you're describing; a grail would be like that one item you hold higher than all else which always seemed pretty stupid to me since it's just clothes.

Duuude, remind me never to share an elevator with Tween, even if Albert Brooks and Ron Perlman pay me to murder him.

I think that after MOK bought that Yohji trench, his wife banned him from using styleforum.

by that logic all cars are equal and so my mazda demio is just as good as a ferrari?

That doesn't make any sense.  No car is a 'grail' for me because I don't really give a fuck about cars but that doesn't make every car equal.  Maybe if I saved for ten years and bought a Ferrari and woke up and polished it every morning and kissed it goodnight it would be a 'grail' but I don't think many people are that obsessive about clothing / it's an overused word.  

 

The dictionary definition of grail is that it's the ultimate (i.e. that there can really be only one), so people on here having a whole list of 'grails' is pretty bizarre.  It's just semantics tho so whatever.

 

Edit: I'm not belittling clothing or cars, just trying to say that by definition you can't have more than one grail.

just because you don't care doesn't mean we don't. Shit grow some empathy on a fashion forum

also a grail is something you really want you havent obtained yet, hence the "grail" status.

Haha.  I was just trying to explain to Toasty the actual usage of the word, since he asked.

this is the only point i was getting at, many grails and its derivatives like semi-grails i don't get. i think plenty of people do come here to discuss clothing because they view it as a hobby of sorts, just as car enthusiasts (which we even have on sf, see car thread) like to discuss cars, because people view these things as more than just clothes/cars be it aesthetics, art, expression, fabric delights, horsepower, handling, ride, fit, tuning, modifications, experimentation, collection, etc.
