It was popular in China as a cosmetic procedure to increase overall height. A few years ago the Chinese government banned the practice, as the complication rate was alarmingly high - a lot of people were ending up in wheelchairs for life.

 

 

I don't think that the "bagel-head" was ever actually popular in Japan - that was more of a "Japan WTF" thing that became popular on social media and news articles that love to publish articles about how Japan is a very peculiar place.

 

However, having snaggle-teeth (protruding canine teeth) - called "yaeba" in Japan - is quite popular amongst Japanese women, as it's thought to make them look cute and youthful. Women will actually pay for a dental procedure to make their canine teeth stick out more.

 

Speaking of leg-lengthening, a female politician here in Australia went to Russia back in the early 2000s to have the same type of leg-lengthening surgery. Apparently, it increased her height by 8cm and she later wrote a book about the procedure, entitled "God Made Me Small, Surgery Made Me Tall".

I know the English are known for bad teeth, but the Japanese can definitely give them a run for their money.

I know people wear them with jeans. Do you wear yours with brown suits or trousers? I feel like they get mentioned a fair amount but I'm having a hard time picturing any recent fits that use 'em.

I should also preface that I have no black clothing whatsoever; I wonder if you sorta need another black element in the fit to balance them out.

 

Ptbs do pretty well with Swd tbh.

FWIW I meant in the CM context.  Can't speak for SW&D, other than to say that if u want to wear them SW&D I think the cordovan would be a good thing because it would emphasize the informality.

Easy on the shorthand, broski. I understand those abbreviations, but you sound like a douche. Tbh.

Oh irony. How I love thee.

I was intentionally being ironic. Perhaps if you weren't so dense, you'd have picked up on that fact. teacha.gif

Our friend @SeamasterLux is in the news: https://twitter.com/PaulLuxSartoria/status/712186979614588928

Hope you're alright, Paul

I think it might be more accurate to say that formality is inherently black rather than black being inherently formal. All formal shoes are black, but not all black shoes are formal. I mean this in a CM context.

Hoping this will be ok here since this seems to be the catch all thread these days. Calling on @upr_crust @edmorel @Manton and anyone else that is familiar with New York. I'll be making my first ever trip to the place in May. Any restaurant recommendations? I'm up for anything from a good New York slice to fine dining, but the choices are overwhelming.

I'm really enjoying your attempts to butt into the pecking order. It's quite adorable tbh.

Ps: I was referring to your being the prototypical internet tough guy douche in a classic case of the pot calling the kettle black, but it was clearly too much for me to ask.

You're not worth my time bud. Have fun on here.

Are you more interested in the traditional or whimsical in terms of food?

I'm adventurous. My only desire is to have a (pleasantly) memorable experience. I've enjoyed 3 michelin star restaurants and dusty BBQ joints with equality, so long as the food is good.

Consider asking on the NYC thread. The choices are numerous and sky's the limit on pricing. You should have a price point and an idea of what you want to try or what you enjoy.
