good luck with that, N.

i like the shoes, but the problem i have with nikes is that the piece that comes up on the front of the toe is always glued down, and i find that it inevitably starts to peel and come off. you ever have that with yours?

I know what you mean, but I'm a soccer player and a swimmer; these are the first running shoes I've ever had...

ahhhh, i see. well, if you remember, please do let me know how these hold up.

About 20 minutes from where I live there is an annual clothing outlet for one of the larger Swedish e-tailers, and this year a Swedish menswear brand by the name of Oscar Jacobson shared some of the space with said e-tailer. As the prices went down to 50 % of the outlet price last weekend, I decided to drop by and see if anything caught my eye.

In the end, I left with a suit and a sport coat from the luxury collection, unlined and with floating chest canvas, in size 50. I ended up paying the equivalent of $343. I know that these probably won't stand up all too well to what some of you are used to, but I'm quite satisfied with my purchase.

Suit: Loro Piana fabric, 10% cashmere 90% wool. It's a bit lighter in colour in reality.



Sport Coat: Loro Piana "Cashmere Wish" fabric, 85% cashmere 15% Super 170's wool

Shoes are on their way.


My advice would be to try avoid running on tarmac - very bad for the knees.

The end part, I bolded, is really all that matters. And, I'll add, they look great too - kudos!

This is all off-topic, but actually the impact on knees is very much the same whatever surface you are running on. The important thing is to do other kinds of exercise that are neutral or even positive for your knees too - cycling and swimming, for example - make sure you have good running form, and to just pay attention to how things feel. The biggest long-term danger to knees is from sports that involved a combination of impact and sudden stops and twists, like soccer or tennis or massive pressures like powerlifting and judo. (I'm a long-time competitive cyclist, runner and triathlete and former soccer player and judoka - it took me years of cycling to recover from some of the damage done by the latter activities, but now I'm a good runner for my age group...)

Thanks, gents. My knees are okay, but one of them is without a functional anterior cruciate ligament smile.gif (Yeah, I love football.) Playing (indoor) football with the knee is no problem, so I hope it's strong enough for running. I'm planning on calm, relaxed running with a very slow schedule to begin with. I swim twice a week.

And I love how you use the word "football"!

I would have done too, but I was assuming that most of the forum would get the wrong idea... ;) I think I also have very similar problems to NOBD...

Can't say I'm a fan of the last, but damn that's some sexy leather.

Just got delivery confirmation that I have 3 Ratio Clothing shirts, 2 pair of Howard Yount pants, and a pair of Meermin captoes on my porch. Oh happy day...I'll post pictures later.
