At least jeans get their money worth because you probably end up wearing them a lot, unlike other pieces of clothing one pays that much for.

to me it seems no different than when one of my friends drops a few thousand dollars on a tv, or several K on a nice car. people have different priorities and want to spend their disposable income on different things. nobody ever gets on a musician for buying a $3000 dollar guitar, but if you spend money on clothes people are for some reason scandalized

Nah, I was just referencing a post someone made with a video explaining the difference between "could care less" and "couldn't care less". For whatever reason, "could care less" has always bugged me, so I guess the video resonated with me. Also, it was pretty hilarious.

laugh.gif Nah, I was actually planning on returning them when I bought them; I figured it was worth my $6 to verify that size 30 is too big for me (which it is).

Still planning on buying some raw black 19cm when I get the chance, universe be damned. devil.gif

The salesman tried really hard to dissuade me, saying they weren't really good for anything in particular, and I went home without them.
After thinking about them for three hours, I drove back and demanded them - good thing I did, because they were the last pair in my size. They're super, super comfy, and while I probably won't be running in them, I think I'll be wearing them a ton, because I have recently realized that most of the shoes I own are a size too small for me. Really dumb.
Anyway, I think these are too fucking cool, so I took a picture and they're SO ORANGE it's like I am wearing space tang shoes on my feet. Would not hesitate to buy again, but I remembered nike sneakers being like 60$ and these were 150$, which was a little surprising.
(I also tried on the free 3.0 v4 - how the fuck do you guys keep these things straight? - and thought they were awesome, so I may custom-order some of those in a fun color, because all they had where I live is red and grey. Yuck.)

a lot of socks lately
post #28780 of 45083
I need more socks

Outside of Uniqlo, where can I find decent socks (cotton or wool, medium thickness, fun colors?)?
post #28781 of 45083
banana republic. a few years ago i was in a banana republic randomly and they had all of their socks marked down to a $1. i bought like.. 40 pairs.
post #28782 of 45083

I bought 9-10 of those BR socks at the same price, but they kinda sucked. Uniqlo's are much much better, so if you're looking for something as good I'd personally avoid BR.

Nothing beats Uniqlo at price/quality.  

post #28784 of 45083
Uniqlo sock are outstanding from a durability point of view and given their colour selection but certainly not idea; during hot summers.
