    If an item is listed as "or best offer" and I'm not quite willing (or able) to do the asking price then I'll make an offer. I usually tell the seller if he does some more price drops and gets to that number then let me know. I think that's pretty fair. The ball is in the seller's court and it's up to him to decide. But if the price is firm I think it's pretty lame to low-ball. It's just wasting everyone's time.

    I didn't recommend citronelle you jerk


    I lowballed some people on Etsy recently and feel kind of guilty about it

    Tried to catch up on a month's worth of posts in this thread and gave up. Props to Synth for spreading that JLS love (and pointing me to a non-Japan stockist). Not enough Kanye hate though, slackers

    stylezeitgeist is doing it for everyone, love that someone posted that piece of shit travesty of a collection there to troll faust :happy: honestly so annoyed by his existence and I use to love his music
    maybe cuz I'm never in williamsburg, but I havent truly met an "authentic" hipster. I guess i've only been exposed to the latter case as you mentioned. However, that use to be the exact idea in my mind of a hipster but its been so distorted overtime by shit.

    After taking a hard look at Kanye's collection, I didn't think it was quite as bad as people seemed to make it. It seems people are judging it based on him and his personality rather than the product. Not saying its great or anything, but I liked it better than plenty of other established designers which has to be good for something, right? :/

    As far as hipsters, having been to Willysbury and living near San Francisco, I think the Mission might be more 'hipster' and annoying than WB....Shit, if you're between 16-35 y/o and live in SF there is probably a 75% you are what most consider a hipster. They're everywhere!

    That collection went beyond derivative, I agree with the SZ poster who said he basically just took stuff from his favorite lines and mashed them together. Saving grace was the fur backpack, which should have been in a FW collection, but I am a sucker for fuzzy things anyway. If that quote about him taking out loans and getting the best models and blah, blah, blah is true, he got duped by the agency

    The blue jeans and white sparkly pants were decent though

    Holy fuck, he got Zanotti to do his footwear? Also, he supposedly got guidance from Katie Eary, who I like, along with a number of other designers.

    $$$ gets you anything you want



    anyways my main problem with his pursuit in this is the fact that he thinks all he needs is $$$ to get himself a great collection. It spits in the face of designers who actually have something to say and do so through their work. I see nothing of value in what he made, yah it looks better than most designers out there, that happens when you hire good people.
