    Spend $1k or under on an item you really want / have wanted
    Spend $500 on two pairs of sneakers or mc shoes depending on your style make sure to rotate them

    Put the rest into an S&P etf

    that collar on the uniqlo is :fu: for those of you that it fits good that is great. i'm also in the group the less button down shirts you have the better.

    right now i only have 5 i'm looking to get only 8 max but also looking to sell one of my current ones soon since i don't wear it much. i don't own a white button down either but you can never go wrong with blue in variations/varieties

    How to make yourself feel old:

    1. See cute receptionist at gym, is looking at a online sneaker shop on the computer.
    2. Ask if she's looking for some sneakers.
    3. Ask if the pair of af1's sitting next to the entrance are hers (wasn't).
    4. When she says no, I had a pair last year, reply I had a pair back in the 90's.
    5. Wait for her to look at you, like how old are you......
    6. Self facepalm.

    I've been searching for a nice slim leather holder for my iPhone and I think I may have finally found it. Anyone have any experience with Smythson?

    Trust that was my first choice and after trying out most of them they were either too bulky and or functioned also as coin purses and other stuff I don't need

    Girl got in a few bags from yoox, one looks like it could pass for a men's briefcase but would need to get rid of these studs.

    If this were a hockey forum I'd make a "What, no Jagr?" joke. But alas... :embar:


    Unrelated: who makes comfy gym shorts that also look cool? I like Geller Seconds stuff, but I'm sure there's more out there too, right?

    Don't take this in jest when I say this, but is there any way to tell them you think they should make something that would fit you? Either as a one-off (does Margiela do one-offs?) or as a future product suggestion? Would they care since clearly you're an important customer to them?

    If they do indeed do MTO, would it be prohibitively costly?

    I asked once for hangers and dust bags and they said no haha Doesn't hurt to ask though right? I'd imagine it would cost double maybe triple something they would produce on their own

    I've got a couple items (credit card wallet, passport cover) from them which are great quality. They do decent sales after Xmas too
