    There's merit to that sentiment, but an ironic comment coming from someone who despises pro wrestling as much as Vince McMahon does.

    I think a lot of you probably won't be into this, but while we're on the topic of talking about clothes, I think this is a pretty worthwhile read.

    The disadvantage is that one may take another's passion for clothing and perceive it as elitism/pretentiousness/snobbery. Having something to show off might give off the vibe that you are a show off. While this may not be true, the average passerby might think so. Just like how people see a dude with 9% body fat and think "What a meathead, I bet he thinks he's better than me", they do the same with a well dressed man. Same goes for Porsche owners, etc. Nobody gives shit to wine connoisseurs because there's no way to know that they are just by looking at them.

    I think the only way I will purchase clothing this week is if Context does one of their magical 50% off everything sales. The only other shops I want something from are in the EU, and the best I can hope for from them is free shipping.

    Otherwise, I'll just buy ski gear.

    You know that peculiar policy of some european shops to not discount VAT on sale items is perplexing, it's a tax for fucks sake that they're pocketing to offset the loss on sales pricing.

    How does that make any sense.
