i've been thinking about this mostly as a dependency on digital visual media tech with its attendant limits and possibilities. i mean as it relates to currents of fashionWhen it comes to that feeling of why distinct trend eras have seemingly disintegrated, I keep recalling this 032C piece from a few years ago:
As a contemporary metaphor, flatness describes how the invention of the Internet has restructured global society. At its origin, its promise was a social revolution founded on intersectional equality and universal democracy. It is our contention that that promise may yet be fully realized.032c.com
When influences from everywhere and everytime are so readily available, I do think there's some merit to the idea that the regular "trend-cycle" that spans decades does get kinda broken.
Does she already have fountain pens that she likes? If so, what does she like about them? It would help to know what kind of qualities she prefers in a fountain pen, aside from the nib size (e.g. a smooth writing experience, toothy writing experience, something with a bit of bounce, etc).I hate to bring this back up, but Christmas is coming up and my wife has a new hobby: fountain pens.
I know she was looking at pilots and extra fine/fine nibs but anyone know what I should look for? Is there anything yall pen men would look for or recommend?
Naw, I see the raw denim game as tripple checking measurements on jeans, asking a stranger to verify measurements on the internet, asking the people who made the jeans if they will shrink, buying them from $300 from Japan, agonizing if they will fit while you wait for delivery, receiving them and realizing they don't fit.... doesn't that mean you're still in the raw denim game?
RRL. There's a ton of them floating around on eBay for pretty cheap.Who sells a good, lightweight western shirt similar to the one below (pic stolen from a DWW article)? I know we're in the middle of FW drops, but I'm looking for something lighter than all the denim, cord, moleskin westerns out there. Something light colored (even just white/blue) and light weight..

I just got this reply:Shipping: Does not ship to Canada
Item location: Tokyo, Japan
Ships to: Worldwide
I have never heard of anything like it, least of all between major developed countries. (It would be one thing if one of us was in Somalia, and likewise my reaction would be different if he said "Shipping with the correct insurance would be very expensive, let me know / give me XYZ info if you'd like to know the exact rate" -- but no such option was even mentioned.)Thank you for contacting us.
Unfortunately we cannot transact with Canada since we cannot insure the item when shipping.
We are deeply sorry we cannot sell this item to you.
Thank you for your understanding.
It's bullshit. Normal EMS is working fine between Japan and Canada - they could use that.I have never heard of anything like it, least of all between major developed countries. (It would be one thing if one of us was in Somalia, and likewise my reaction would be different if he said "Shipping with the correct insurance would be very expensive, let me know / give me XYZ info if you'd like to know the exact rate" -- but no such option was even mentioned.)
Has anybody else run into this sort of thing lately, and is it a temporary ramification of COVID-19 or a frightening sign of international purchasing difficulties to come?
Pilot's Custom 823 has an incredibly smooth writing experience. It's not glassy, which I find to be uncomfortable. But it's very smooth. It's hard to describe this stuff online because it's such a tactile experience. But you can look up reviews of almost any pen on YouTube (although, even those will have limitations).Well my Wife is an artist, and from gleening at her stuff and random conversationd from what I can tell she likes smaller sizes pens just because she has petite hands and she like smooth writing pens, probably not a lot of bounce. Right now she only has cheaper sub 50 dollar pens. I want to probably get her something real nice with some nice inks.
Between 150-400 probably. I'm tryna make it a semi-surprise but I'll ask and steer the conversation into her own preferences.
