I will never recover from the time when, as I excitedly chattered about a package I was about to open, my girlfriend perfectly deadpanned,”Is it another blue shirt?” It was masterfully done.
This is when you hope it is one of those narrow striped white and blue shirts the Italians do so well, so you can show her what is what

I find myself either wearing workout gear when I'm at home/running errands, oir scrubs or a suit/jacket when working/if I can get out rarely. A lot of the really cool stuff I got in my early 20s and my body is just not the same shape it was back then, which meant getting rid of stuff that won't ever fit (or fit right). I thought about selling my 5 zip and getting a SLP leather jacket in my current size but then I have to question would I even wear it/is it worth spending the thousands of dollars difference between the two if I wear it once or twice a year if that.
what size and kind of leather is the 5zip?

I find the SLP rider a money grab. I don’t think it’s iconic i. anyway and there are plenty of better options that are far less than 5k. Now I am not one to judge if you wanna drop 5k on a leather jacket, just saying there are better options than SLP.

The affiliate vendors complain about this and the posts are removed regularly. They are also not technically allowed, but we tolerate them in swd, since the two sides of the forum have different cultures. In any case, he was warned and did it regardless. That’s on him. That said, he stood be back soon.

Ok, so I guess it was a 48 hour time out. If I can suggest one thing, maybe if you are restricting somebody’s access then tell the mods to at least DM that person and tell them why and for how long.
it’s not like I was harassing anybody or being mean I just posted something for sale in a BST thread. Fwiw I wasn’t warned and wasn’t told why. I posted, then saw the notification that the post was deleted, then couldn’t post anymore. If that’s the rule then ok but, yeah, some communication and transparency would be nice especially when you have said yourself that the rules are inconsistent and arbitrary between different threads.

There is a little place when you ban or time someone out where there is a note that the user can see when they try to log in. I'll ask the mods to please fill that out in these cases. If you had not had a conversation with a mod before this, I apologize for that, and I'll mention it in our internal mod conversations. We ask a mod to tell a user that this is not allowed, and then delete the post, and we typically only time people out after that first notice has been sent.

Any music heads frame concert posters? Got a couple favorites out of storage and unfortunately they've both picked up a bit of visible damage. Kind of wanting to frame them still but not sure whether that would come off as tacky. They're autographed and unfortunately can't readily be restored.
