As surprising as it seems people aren't aiming for undifferentiated mediocrity but adherence to the norms and language of a certain group, so neither pure belonging nor entirely singular distinction.

When you have a thread called "Recent Purchases" I think one of the few valid reasons for its existence is to observe some form of trending.


90% of it is for validation and conspicuous consumption, but at least we get to see the difference between what gets talked about and what people actually buy.

Next is probably Guatemalan hats, oh wait maybe not heritage enough.

You really come across as judgemental and preachy despite being a supposedly well-educated, open minded libertarian... No offense of course.

This is not the first time that people have been critiqued on this site. If you post something that is polarizing like birks prepare for some people to say yeah and some to say no. How they do it is another story entirely.

Not sure you're saying what you think you're saying there...

Also, FWIW, some of the libertarians I've met are among the least open-minded people I know.

Birks were the Uggs of Aeropostale/Abercrombie middle/high gals like 10 years ago here

I just got some bostons as well. Bobo's been on board for years, I got over it last spring because I"m a victim of marketing.

Fuuma just hates hippies, which is a reasonable position.

i'm afraid you're horribly mistaken. if anything, he's alternating between fascist and anarchist philosophies, far from libertarianism. That's why he comes up with terms like Nazi Rabbi ...

put the floral pattern on the bottom and that's my last fit...uh oh. Good job my flute was in for servicing.

Fact remains if birks were never in japanese magazines sufu and sf would never be on board, except parker (he means well).
post #27629 of 45480

post #27630 of 45480
Birks are only acceptable for 16 yr olds at Jewish summer camp and dave matthews band concerts.
