    I'll leave you with one other thought: ball space. The difference between the cuts in women's and men's jeans is pretty significant. Women can comfortably wear men's jeans. The converse is not true.

    They visit NYC. Gentlemen's Footwear sells RTW and does MTM I believe.

    thanks @ChetB @dieworkwear
    I ordered a pair of white 12's, I don't think I've owned valuts (only standard Vans and OTW) so I'll just go TTS brannock.
    I take it no stockists got the moon rock colour or was that just the most hyped colour this season?

    Masculine fragility indeed.

    But the cut of Visvim women’s actually isnt’t far off from the men’s low-rise styles. I’ve noticed that the Japanese appear to be brutal on the nutsacks of those who ask for skinner denim.

    I can only wear the "relaxed tapered" cuts from a lot of Japanese brands, and I'm not that big. And they don't look that relaxed.

    I wish that some of them fit like that. Unfortunately, the relatively lower rise + the slim fit through the top block and the seat make it nearly impossible. Where are the jeans for those of us with breeders hip?

    Left work early and headed for some food. After getting yelled at by the owner for waiting in line and leaving b/c I wanted pizza but wasn't sure the establishment would make me a slice or more without cheese I ended up at this place where they had lockers to store your belongings, I thought cool that's new. Don't remember what I had but I was there for a good minute. Things get sort of blurry, I was making my way out and some girls snatched my Geller side zips after I took them out of the locker. They got mad about something I said. By the time I was heading out the door of the lounge, actually putting on my shoes I realized i was missing the right boot. AFter looking around and chatting with some of the other guests, few people emerged from what looked like the restroom. As I approached them a girl handed me what looked like a shoe. Quick to realize, I recalled seeing someone take my Geller boot to the back. With the shoe in my hand I examined it more closely, it appeared like someone took scissors and hacked off the shaft. These side zip boots were haphazardly turned into Vans-like slip ons. After moments of consoling myself, I wasn't even mad. I finished chatting it up with everyone, starred down who I assume cut away at my shoe, packed said shoe with its taller brother back in the box, packed the rest of my belongings and headed out the door. This is when you realize it was all a weird dream, you lie wide eye in your bed, peer over your sheets at the shoe rack and digest what the hell just happened, what does it mean?

    Clearly you are meant to buy some Geller slip ons.

    Also, maybe you shouldn't eat spicy food within 2 hours of going to sleep.

    Or, maybe it's time to cut back on the drugs.

    Russians.

    Seriously.

    Or maybe Macedonians.

    Or Koreans. Or anywhere where the dollar is worth a lot more than it is here and there are technically clever people.

    Basically, this type of low yield breaking of the ad networks rules happens because of arbitrage in the global economy.

    Yes, we are, constantly. It's constantly being addressed from little guys like us all the way up to Google. If you see an issue, please do report it to [email protected], with your IP address, and the time at which this happened, and if possible, a target URL. This allows us to figure out who is being targeted, and by whom.

    As for the global arbitrage issue, that's above my pay grade.
