    holy fuck that was bad. It makes sense after clicking the link in the article to her blog :crazy:


    Yeah I noticed this when I was looking at tv's the other day. Spend 400-500 on an awesome piece of outerwear? sure, no problem. Drop $400 on a tv? eh I don't know if I want to spend that much...even though I'll probably use it for at least 5 years. The way I think about spending money on clothes is still a bit ahead of how I think about spending on most everything else. I think its at least partly because clothes don't tie you down. If you move you can just throw them in a suitcase, whereas furniture and other larger stuff...not so much

    Can anyone here more versed in Supreme than I am let me know if they make baseball caps? Where would be the best place to pick up a black hat from Supreme? I know that this is probably a better question for SuFu, but I'm sure that someone of you here know just as well. :)

    I'm sure if you hung around AVS forums or something your budget would move accordingly. It's happened to me with audio gear on head-fi. When you see a lot of people spend a lot of money so casually, you get desensitized to price.

    gotta cop them $2,000 AudioQuest HDMI cables, son. Also, don't forget to minimize your interference with some $100 Shakti stones.

    Gold plated audio cables for a more 'danceable' sound.

    Just received my Made in the USA Levi 501's.
    Wow.
    I finally understand why the 501 is the jean to end all jeans.

    Woah now, desensitized to price but not to logic! Radio shack cables ftw.

    Current setup is gilmore lite + psu -> grado hf-2. :slayer:

    Was reading a Jil Sander interview earlier and found the perfect quote to describe new Margiela.

    " creativity seems to be a bit stuck in repetitions or overdone with equipment. There is a lot of recycling going on, experimenting without direction"

    Jil Sander S/S 2012 women's is pretty bad.

    The Picasso-esque sweaters were pretty awesome though.

    I've come to the conclusion that my fits and purchases are better when I don't browse SF. There are a lot of diverging styles here and I like a lot of them. I think I end up trying to copy bits and pieces of everything and end up with a hot mess. Perhaps it's more a comment on my inability to commit to one style but I think it's interesting nonetheless. I think I pull of basics really well and the closer I edge to fashion forward stuff the more I end up with massive fails. Please remind me of this post the next time I buy something stupid. Thanks.
