Thanks for all the recommendations everyone!

Not sure if this is a meta dig at SZ for having that photoshoot at the site of a disaster.

If Freddie Gibbs has taught me anything, it's that Gary, Indiana is fucking awful.

If I still were renting the same studio in London (which was as big as my living room now) I'd be paying over 25% (I was paying more when I was there as my salary was lower).

 

So yeah, getting a salary from an expensive place and living on a cheap place is the way to go. Although some people would get bored where I live now easily, but personally I don't miss London in the slightest (actually I try to go there once per year at most, my boss is ok with that), and I could move to a big city that would still be way cheaper than London.

There are many reasons that I decided to stay here in Moscow, ID, and that is one of them.  I thought hard about what benefits I would get from being in a major metropolis, either in the Bay Area, or somewhere decidedly cheaper, and the cons far outweighed the pros, for me, at this time in my life.  

 

I suppose that if I were 25, single, and with no kids, my calculations would have taken me elsewhere.

As Freddie would say, "Welcome to Shitsville!"

Gary Indiana:

Come for the cost of living, stay because you've been murdered there.

I just always assumed Moscow, ID was a joke and not a real place :hide:

Me too, never took that seriously. I just googled it though and it looks very picturesque … it must be quite pleasant there, never been to Idaho.

Yeah, it's a nice place.  Even a few decent places for food these days.  Great farmers market in the summers.  A lot of random people from all over who either move back, after having been elsewhere, or end up here because of family connections, or like me, were drawn by the two universities 8 miles from each other.  Recently, we just got an honest to goodness good pastry chef and a cakemaker.  There is also a guy here who does pretty decent croissants. Sorta an odd, cool, town that was once an old hippie enclave.

Speaking of Ann D, do all the Scamosciato's fit the same (boots, derby, sneaker)?
I had a pair of the derbies a few years ago (3 maybe?) in a 45 and they were too big (I'm a US12), I'm looking for a pair of the boots now in a 44 and just wondering if that's the right call.

Also, some pretty great trolling by Wil Fry:

Y'all could just hit the nice middle ground and live in a city like Denver (but not Denver, WE'RE FULL). We have most of the good qualities of a larger metropolis but without the bursting-at-the-seams population crowding and a relatively low cost of living in the grand scheme of things. Plus, mountains.

I told them no. Flat negative. NFW. Give me a couple years and I'm the one coming with an offer, Jeff!

Plus, anytime you want you can just head on over to the ocean. Wait a second…

lol you say this as if any beach near San Fran is worth a shit

plus it's like a couple of hundo round trip to LA from Denver which is a pittance for anyone who spends thousands of dollars a year on clothes

Feels like Gr@iled is rapidly declining under its own weight. There is simply too much fluff to browse through anymore. Even with my filters applied, every other item is Supreme, Bape or some other equally-garish hypebeast piece of junk.

There are also too many people selling $50 baseball caps. I was looking just now, and there is seriously somebody selling a Uniqlo shirt for $20. How is that possibly worth the effort to even take the photos? Feels like the entire site is becoming populated by 15 year-olds.

I almost wish they would create different sections, one for more streetwear oriented stuff and one for artisanal and higher-end brands.
