Maybe he finally glanced down at the fake Rolex on his wrist and realized how empty his life was, pretending to be something he was not.

Even a fake Rolex is overpriced. I put together my Seiko 5 for under $100.

Back to the original intent of this thread, part of the issue is that the glued construction that many of us turn our noses up at is actually very reliable in many cases as adhesives have come a long way.

Many people here have convinced themselves that welted leather shoes are comfy as a slipper. Really.

They even claim to have run marathons in wingtips, b/c they are more comfortable than sneakers and Eccos.
They also said they use their suits as pajamas, b/c the suits are that comfortable. And that cheap flannel pajamas are awful.

I have a pair of J&Ms that I have used as my beater pair,
and they are going on 8 years of regular use.
And they get the worst of the rain and snow.

Clearly the person who started that website did not know how to enjoy life.

His main obsession seems to have been a self-righteous pursuit of being cheap.
