I think a kit could really take off, and I've contacted Glennie to pursue it.

By the way, you know you're passing up a discussion on DSquared vintages that's going on right now to harass me on perforations?

Be careful: don't perforate so deeply that you strike gemming.

Sometimes, the backed up pressure of the disintegrating plastic and cardboard is so great that there is a detonation of confetti-like material through the perforation, similar to a circus clown blunderbuss going off.

I learned of this danger on teh StyleForvm as well. It's a real treasure box of scholarship.

I assume that what Americans call Swiss cheese is your favorite dairy product?

Funny, I never really associated blunderbusses with circus clowns. Live and learn.

I don't understand how J. Crew's bringing quality makers into the mainstream and simultaneously upping its own standards can possibly be a bad thing. Honestly, to the folks complaining about the "mainstreamization" of labels like Alden or Thomas Mason, who cares? Does some average schmuck's wearing of a quality item somehow diminish the quality of yours?

I feel like I'm reading a rant on Pitchfork about how some obscure band "sold out" because more than 12 people now know about its existence.

So you don't see the fun in the question I take it? Perhaps tomorrow would be a better day to ask?

You're presupposing that there was fun to be seen.

Was this to kick me or fellate the others? Either way, thank you.

I'm under the impression that the true fun is in doing both simultaneously whilst someone else films to proceedings.

Time to give up all those douche-y high-end labels and get back to basics.

J. Crew is my favorite mainstream store especially for certain sweaters.

A few years back when they made a big deal about their Loro Piana cashmere sweaters, I bought a few and wasn't thrilled with them. Lots of pilling.
