    This is why I like some actual workwear, Margaret Howell and old European brands.. EG in XL is by far too small for me (6'4,45 ish chest, and perhaps 34 waist), but I can wear an L or XL in Howell. And Japanese brands are a horror to size, I gave up years ago. Swedish fashion brands on the other hand tend to do a decent XL/54, with long sleeves.

    I should probably get into Dutch fashion.

    He has slimmed down a bit - maybe to a large 38, small 40, whereas before he thicker, but still, probably a size 4 or 5 in his own brand. He caters to his audience.

    Can someone help me with Japan yahoo auctions? I'd like to purchase these. I know some people here buy from Japan Yahoo all the time and have it shipped to the states. What's the way to do it? Thanks in advance.

    Related: what about south korea? Tempted to get some stuff from here http://hififnk.kr/ and they do offer internation shipping, but at 50$ it seems awfully steep compared to japanese shipping prices available through FromJapan.

    Or maybe Japan just has way cheaper shipping than Korea in general? If anyone is from there and would like to help proxy, do please send a pm.

    I don't care how incredibly impractical this is and how yellow it's gonna look in a few months... I want to wear this jacket with some clear high top sneakers, like some nikeid air force ones.

    Has anyone ever come across scientific social studies about WAYWT? I know there are tons of selfie studies out but thats not the same at all.

    Watched a tv show today about the 1% and a professor claimed that it's more difficult now than 30 years ago, to move from the lower/middle class to the 1%. That guy should be fired, for being ignorant.

    It apparently is. Social mobility was greater in the Roman empire though and it wasn't necessarily a good thing.
