    ^yo can you shut the hell up or take this to another thread as fok would say?

    Don't remember the last time I wore a belt.

    Think I got a couple somewhere.

    Bruh I'm not taking long walks in the rain just out in it from the car to wherever I'm walking and back. Just want something nylony and warm.

    Fair enough I'm just saying the Uniqlo uld takes a bit to dry and regain warmth after getting wet and I think that's true for most down. Synthetic is more resilient and you can get a slicker looking jacket with similar heat retention from the synthetics

    This Fok guy sounds like an asshole.

    Also, haven't figured out a name for the new thread yet. Working title is "Random Developer and Engineering thoughts."

    I've decided that the ultimate watch for @RegisDB9 is a gold Omega Constellation with a "TV" dial from the 70s:

    I quite like those gold casios tbh

    Also I legite don't know when I'd wear a belt. Maybe when I'm wearing jeans but...why?

    I don't like them with pants either and I try to avoid belt loops or have them removed

    The last thing I sold on Grailed before I deleted my account was a pair of Y3 Qasa Lows. The buyer was in San Francisco and opened a case the day after I shipped with tracking and didn't close the case until Grailed/PayPal stepped in. Fuck that guy and Grailed.

    I've only bought a pair of pants through grailed, I've often wondered how much fake stuff goes through there?

    Jeez bud, that must’ve been when Fear of God was the dominant trend! Much has changed since then.

    What's wrong with synthetic down? It can be just as warm, thinner insulation, far more waterproof, and isn't an animal product. I have a couple of down jackets, and a Patagonia synthetic down. It's just as warm and more technical.

    From a technical aspect, I usually prefer down because it packs down smaller. That said, some of the synthetic down is approaching a level where it is as warm as down without the bulk.

    Uniqlo uld is a great choice for places that aren’t particularly cold. I wear one as a mid layer for skiing.
