Some days I get 5+ mails from them.
The quality and frequency of posts on selectism has really dropped, too.

I want to thank you for letting me know it's a reasonable brand. I also want to thank you and @Kiya for discussing the question of handwarmer pockets. I bought the jacket in full knowledge of its absence of pockets, which I found a little bit odd. However, the truth is that I often like to put my hands in my pants pocket, anyway... The manager of the store pointed out that this jacket is almost like a shirt, for what it's worth. The store, by the way, is rather nice. It's called Art in the Age and is located here in Philadelphia.

I would love a general thread on Japanese denim and workwear brands...I would certainly subscribe...would it include footwear?

I unsubscribed for the quantity alone.

I find with Type 3's that unless you go oversize and avoid the slim-fit that the pockets bag (if not straight-away relatively quickly). Oddly I just picked up a deadstock Valencia made LVC type III as I was wanting the cleaner lines.

Not sure if this is the right place to ask, but one of my favorite sweaters was washed with normal laundry and is now pretty much ruined.

Anyone know if these exist anywhere in a medium?

We both know it will sell out instantly and be price gouged 1000% by people who have never heard of Sasquatchfabric.  Unfortunate because a lot of the pieces seem pretty cool.

once again, Grailed users are shitty.  Who honestly thinks they can file a chargeback saying they didn't authorize a purchase when there's a full conversation log that includes their name and shipping address (the same as in their paypal account), as well as tracking and signature confirmation showing they signed for the item....:brick:

And knowing paypal, they'll still side with him.

How difficult would it be to create a competitor to PayPal, it's not like there isn't a bunch of bank apps.

 When shit like this happens, I believe in putting their personal information up on the internet. Full name, address, etc etc. 4Chan is a good place to start. Fuck em, put them on full blast.

Speaking of grailed...

 

Quote:
 Enter Grailed, a website for buying and selling clothes, largely menswear, that at its core works like eBay. It is founded by people who learned the ropes from watching the classifieds sections of the aforementioned forums. Grailed is easy, because it necessitates none of the effort that learning the dynamics of a fashion forum does. For example, on StyleZeitgeist, we require members to have a one hundred post minimum before they are allowed to buy and sell in the classifieds. This is done in order to separate the true fashion enthusiasts from those who merely want to wear “cool shit” and from those who make a living by flipping fashion. None of this happens on Grailed, which is designed purely for buying and selling. A harmless idea on the surface, but by dispensing with discussion Grailed turns all fashion into mere commodity.

I just got rid of my three pairs of Guidis and bought a pair of Indy boots instead. For whatever reason that seemed like the right thing to do.

So, a guy made me an offer for an item I have on grailed, and without me accepting it I got a So-and-so has purchased X item message the next day (for the amount of his offer). Anyone had something like this happen?
