Good luck. I sprouted quite a few white hairs applying to PhD programs and somehow ended up in law school instead (also a cause of many white hairs).
Looks like the Fates switched our respective destinies.

It's a towering new construction overlooking a massive interstate exchange in a struggling, low-income corner of the neighborhood that's being built up with new Airbnbs. Listed at $1.1 million
So it's perfect??

No offense but I fucked my back up this evening dancing to some good ol rock n roll, does this mean I'm getting old?

EDIT: Shirt was open the entire time.

Backs can go at any age. It doesn't mean anything age wise, often it's an issue with the activation of your glutes. Too much sitting can kind of let your posterior chain go to sleep. Try some posterior chain exercises to wake things up. Glute bridges are one Kettlebell swings actually can help in some cases to get things back in sync and awaken.... But unfortunately the "good ol rock n roll" part is 100% boomer energy.

The full boro, full sakiori and full hand sashiko are pieces that are between a Neapolitan hand-made jacket and a luxury good to me. The number of people who can afford it and would dig it is probably very small. Maybe the people shelling out thousands for Greg Lauren type stuff? I don’t see retailers ever carrying these pieces (or sometimes just one unit for show) but I think that squares off with their limited manufacturing capacity. I know we never thought we could sell them. Even at wholesale price, I’m having trouble justifying getting one for myself. I just admire it for now.

The other stuff they do is just well designed, good silhouettes and great work on fabric treatments (their salt shrunk Nylon is stupidly good). It’s a bit expensive but not too out there
Wanted to just say I adore my Kuon bomber that is made up in their salt shrunk nylon and imo it is super special, not that I have much experience with some of the other comparative brands. I haven't really dived into Kapital beyond a few bandanas.

speaking of back pain, I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow to check my fairly new, horrible tinnitus, which I assume is driven by neck and jaw pain, most likely caused by 9 months of working from a kitchen chair and the ongoing pandemic... Anyone successfully dealt with any of that? I got a new pillow, and ordered an office chair, but what else.

I've recently gone through something similar and can feel for you! I had a lot of sleepless nights, which is the absolute worst.

My physio got me on a mid-back mobility program (T-spine, Sleeper and Prayer stretches) and using a massage ball on my shoulders really helped.

Yeah, no way when my boomer back went that I could put on my socks or step off a curb let alone do KB swings.
