    Shit. I was actually expecting / hoping for ~$2500 retail which I was totally ready to swallow. 6k is just stupid money though

    Then you're in a non-mainstream area. EMS is pretty much always overnight to any decent sized US city. It is considered 'overnight' mail in the USA, so a Friday package will reach most people on Saturday no problem.

    The only EMS I've ever received on Sunday was international EMS though.

    There is a special next level international EMS between certain countries, not sure if the USPS offers it, but it can deliver it - it's TNT EMS, though I've only ever used it once. It's more expensive obviously, and I think depending on other variables is as fast as EMS or just slightly faster, like 2 days around the world sometimes, whereas it can be 3 for regular EMS. This excludes USPS, who are incredibly slow and lazy in the flyover states, from my experience.

    Quality is Alternative Apparel level, maybe a little bit better. Cut is all unisex, the ts are short and a-line which makes them fuckin impossible to wear as normal t shirts, I imagine the problem would be even worse for you since you're tall and athletic. Cool graphics though.

    +1. Even a nice day hike can help. I just did one 2 days ago and it was the perfect time of year with all the wild flowers out in the mountains. I didn't take this picture, but it's from the same trial I took. It was nice just lounging in the meadows for many hours while having leisurely lunch. I definitely felt refreshed afterwards.

    Don't worry about it. As they grow older and less attractive the power dynamic will reverse.

    The thing is, the non-washed Attachment denim models are not much more expensive than N&F. For example, the Attachment raws are only 13,000 yen ($168) and the dark one-wash indigo (my personal favorite) is 18,000 yen ($234). I don't know which brand has better fabric, but from all the fit pictures I've seen I'd say Attachment has the more flattering cut for skinny people.

    I haven't been up there in four years. What a beautiful place.

    You live in the PNW?

    I want the 257 because of it can accommodate my college books, notebooks, and a small computer. I have considered a leather bag, but I haven't really looked because I know it'll be at least 2x as expensive.


    I'm not wearing a suit to work so a canvas bag wouldn't look out of place. Hell, a canvas bag is an upgrade from the swiss army backpack I'm carrying now xD.

    I guess that explains the shirt/sleeve length then

    I do worry about I wear. In NYC, every one judges you by the way you look.

    Dude, I highly recommend the 256. It's the perfect size for a laptop, folders, binders and 2-4 books, depending on their size. The 256 is heavy enough as it is, I'd imagine that the 257 is seriously hefty. Call up Crane Country Store for a secret discount
