Anyone know if Nomad usually does anything for Black Friday/Cyber Monday?
1.conforming to the recognized standard of propriety, good taste, modesty, etc., asin behavior or speech.
2.respectable; worthy: a decent family.
3.adequate; fair; passable: a decent wage.
4.kind; obliging; generous: It was very decent of him to lend me his watch.
5.suitable; appropriate: She did not have a decent coat for the cold winter.
Saying they're going to buy something doesn't actually mean they'll do it.

Do Saks Fifth ave & Neiman have any good sales in-store this week? Wondering if it would be worth a visit...
Slam Jam Shop - Lots of great brands
24 h price reduction (italian timing) on products online and at Slam Jam Store Ferrara – Visvim, Supreme, Bunney, Unif. Experiment X Carhartt, Goti, Super, Incase, Cole Haan and Alden are excluded from the promotion.
And yet you ignore the entirety of context which would indicate that definition 3 would be the most likely interpretation. I am not sure that Mauro is the ass here.
Can we keep this bickering somewhere else? Maybe in the WvG thread?
It's fucking thanksgiving, and black friday sales are popping up, it's fucking annoying to see genuine sale announcements be flooded by bullshit.
Considering that something close to 90% of the clothing we see out in the wild is complete trash in terms of fit and quality, i'd interpret decent as the second interpretation. Yes. Allen Edmonds makes good shoes that are better than anything you will find at Clarks/Florsheim/other mainstream shoe brands. But compared to some shell cordovan Aldens? Vass? Lobb? etc., But the Allen Edmonds are still a great product, but in the grand scheme of the whole shoe hierarchy they are merely 'decent.' Similar with the BMW... A BMW 3 series is much better than most of the shit you see out in public but is actually right at the bottom of the BMW product line.
I guess what Mauro is trying to say is that his shirts are top notch and if WvG only classifies as 'decent' then whoever said it was decent has no idea what a good shirt is?
Anyway Mauro keep doing what you do. I don't know how appropriate the last couple posts were but in some ways it is admirable that you are willing to represent your brand with this no-frills no-bullshit attitude. WvG prices are still too steep for me even with the sale but I hope you have many shirts purchased over black friday or whatever.
I know it's been posted a few times, and I really, really, really hate people who self promote, but ... if anyone doesn't know, Jesse, Kiyoshi, and I are keeping a running tab on BF sales. So this page is continually updated as we learn about stuff throughout the day. Feel like the last two times the page was mentioned, it wasn't stated that it was continually updated ...
Also, Present London is apparently doing a leftover sale. Nov. 29-Dec. 1st. Up to 90% off retail prices. In-store purchases only though.
And yet, it's the quintessential BMW.
Very clever to consult a dictionary but decent sounds more downgrading than you probably realize. If we would hold a survey among people and ask them what they think DECENT is, you would probably get another answer.
Shown them this $425 cashmere waffle and tell them how it's made... Ask again: ''Do you think this is decent?'' They'll probably ask you whats wrong with you and tell you that it looks and sounds more like TOP QUALITY!
a complete and up to date list is always appreciated ^
If by quintessential you mean most common, then yes. That's not really what it means, though.
