    I spent seven months with a wrist injury until I found a PT who would dry needle the muscles in my forearm and then the pain went away in a week. Not a doc, but if there's pain in your wrist and you've got a clean MRI, look at your forearm. Supple Leopard has a bunch of useful techniques too.

    But man find a PT in SF who's been trained in dry needle. NFL uses that shit all the time and it works

    I'll look into it. To be specific regarding the injury, I got lazy on my form while incline benching and felt/heard a pop. Probably doesn't help that I'm using the mouse all day.

    Ugh. Go find a wrist doc and get an MRI. That's step 1. Had a similar issue, needed to wear a brace for 10 days and a cortisone shot. But stop sucking around with a chiro, you're just wasting time. MRI will point you in the right direction

    Red, maybe. But blue, taupe and grey? With the latter two you can essentially get dressed in the dark and come out looking fine. Blue, especially like, a royal, can be a little tougher, but if you have grown up around denim, you should be able to tell tonality in blues and browns really easily.

    Yeah Cyc please do see a hand surgeon. A scan will point u in a better direction.

    Mr hare put out a really cool salmon skin shoe in his debut collection. Patent black leather derby with a metallic blue vamp..

    i mean the guidi shape + colors thends to come across pretty hard to style even the greys and browns are very unorthodox tones. I think they are easy to mess up esp the last few blue and red guidis i saw (or the greens)

    Don't have experience with the suits, but I've bought sneakers, wallets, bags, and jackets from this brand for gifts for other people, and I've been impressed for the price when I handled them. I recently saw the wallet I gifted about a year ago and it still looked nice.

    CCP rainbow trend maybe? I really dig white boots, as elBert pulls off usually and love A1923 blue dual zips. I guess most "baller" boots from brands tend to put out garments in darker colors and people who wear them usually center their fits around black.

    I honestly don't understand how they can just change a contract. I understand things can change dramatically. But it's still an agreement between a store and customer. Unless a pre order is considered an extension of a store. It still seems as if it's something that would fall over to a store. It's one thing not being happy with how something feels or fits. But its another thing that it's made differently than what you had agreed upon through the pre order that's ran through the store.

    You might as well say your gonna make a shearling jacket sourced from Loro Piana and the last minute change it to some shit pleather from China.

    @LA Guy Would you consider making dope wool coats with Luxire? I know you're doing the leather thing for now, but I think there would definitely be a market for long coats with nice fabrics, good styling w/ options, MTM options (like accounting for shoulder type), etc. at good bang-for-buck prices.

    Fucked my left hand/wrist at the gym 18 months ago, which resulted in loss of feeling and constant spinning sensation in my thumb.

    They ended up sending me to a neurologist, as they thought it was a nerve problem, which it wasn't and the doctor told me, there was nothing wrong with my head (hurried up and got that in writing).

    Long story short, they didn't find the root of the problem and I stopped benching etc for 6 months, which made it go 99% away, so now I have something to look forward to.
