It's you (no hate)
post #11297 of 13758

nothing in nikes really stood out to me. I don't think it's "bad" or anything, and there are some good moments particularly in the second half

It's you

In the past two weeks, I've suddenly found myself getting into Kapital. Some of that stuff looks really weird and I don't think I could pull most of it off, but I like it all the same.

 

I'll likely start off with a couple of shirts. I need to find out if I'm a Size 1 or 2 (I'm usually a Small in most brands' shirts); luckily I have two local stockists to try stuff out.  Maybe a Ring Coat, too.

 

Time for me to start saving my nonexistent Canadian pennies.

Also in case you haven't heard (and neglected to mention in my earlier post): Gord Downie has terminal cancer, hence the final tour across most of Canada. :(

 

That concert lasted almost three hours. CBC did a little thing with Justin Trudeau on the band and they captured some pretty good shots of the concerts from different angles and perspectives. A couple of shots at Gord showed him crying during lyric-less segments hit hard.  My impression was that he didn't want the concert to end. I doubt anybody wanted it to end.

Whats the CDG line that has the allover print button down this season? looked like classic paintings of europeans on horses, fox hunting etc? Can't remember which line or where to get them.

@KaleidoscopicK Size 2 for sure. Size 1 is weird, like a male XS in a female cut

Omg, I had no idea. My father and his are colleagues, and we used to see the guys, who were older than us, doing quotidian things like riding their bikes, very slowly, helmets on, with their kids behind them, around town.

They looked super cool in concert (it was a treatcwatching them play in LA, at the House of Blues, a pretty intimate venue) and their style in the early 90s certainly influenced mine.

Sizing varies a lot (I'm a 43" chest and vary between an odd 3, mostly a 4 and a 'can't squeeze in to that') but generally a 4 is L/XL, 3 is Medium, 2 is Small, 1 is XS

The measurements on Kapital.jp are very accurate in my experience.

I'm not 100% certain (it could have been a similar print blazer) but I think MAC in SF has a bunch of those left, you can probably call them.  I didn't take a close look so I could be off but I know they carry cdgh

Gord Downie, we're with you til whenever.  For those of you who don't know, Gord Downie of the Tragically Hip was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer.

 

For non-Canadians, it's hard to articulate how much the Tragically Hip means to Canadians.  I remember, in grad school, in LA, being about to watch this band at the House of Blues, just a few feet from the stage.  Their concerts in the States were much smaller affairs, and brought out Canadians from all walks of life.  You'd meet people from Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal, wherever.  No matter your politics, if you were Canadian, you knew and loved the Hip.  I am not sure that there is an American equivalent of this band that helped define the often nebulous Canadian Identity  Each stop in their final tour was front page news.  The Toronto Police announced in their twitter feed: Dear World, Please be advised that Canada will be closed tonight at 8:30 p.m ET. Have a #TragicallyHip day. The prime minister embraced Gord Downie at their last concert.  

 

Their songs have a special meaning for me, since so many of them were about my hometown, Kingston, Ontario, on Lake Ontario.  Blow at High Dough talks about the time Kingston was picked as the location for a movie.  38 years old talks about a breakout from the Milhaven Penitentiary, just on the outskirts of town, and of a local rape and subsequent murder of the rapist.  The band members were our neighbors and friends and idols, all at the same time.  We used to watch Rob Baker, the tall guitarist with the famously long hair, riding around town on his bike, pedaling very slowly, with his kids in tow, and the concerts they held when I was in university at Queens (Sci97! Sci97!) at Old Fort Henry were raucous and always sold out.  Throughout their career, as they grew beyond Kingston, but were always, indelibly, about Canada - a storm on the Altantic seaboard, the courage of a hockey goalie, and so on.

 

Anyway, fellow Canadians and the rest of the world, I'll leave you with this, from "Road Apples", their second album, "Long Time Running".  Run on, Gord.
