Write to Faust?

I guess I'm in the "moderation queue to be added to the forum."

Been a while though. Maybe they know I'm old. wink.gif

Your age has nothing to do with this lol. An average person on SZ is middle aged. Faust himself is an old fart (even though some mistakenly take him for a kid due to his unusual height). So you should be fine. Just write to Faust, as bdude suggested.

Interesting. I've always thought of the SZ crowd as being unusually verbose 20-something years old blokes like me.

How many 20 years old can actually afford these "SZ brands"? C-DIEM, CCP, LUC, Harnden, Augusta etc. are not cheap.

Define "afford". I plan to buy ma+ boots soon and I'm 25.

To me, "afford" something means that you can pay for something without significantly affecting your finances and your ability to save money.

 

Someone with $200k in the bank and no other assets, for example, can buy a brand new Porsche 911, but can he afford it? Obviously not. At least not if that person has the slightest trace of sanity.

 

If someone's 20 and got a job at McDonald's then he can save most of 2-3 monthly salaries to buy a pair of baller boots, and that might be fine if it's a one-off but in those circumstances that person better be thinking about the future rather than artisinal boots.

 

Then there's people who are born of rich parents so they can buy whatever they please. But where's the merit in that. :)

While acknowledging that the thrust of your post is mostly correct, it may be the case that SZ tends to attract the educated upper to middle classes with a disposable income or no financial worries in life...

I'm 26. Been there, done that. Obviously buying $1900 boots is about priorities as well. Still not rich, but the income is better than 6 years ago when I was 20.

Yep, last line of my post.
