    When you buy everything off of the supermarket like me you can just claim "vintage". That or say that my southern upbringing does not permit me to share the price of my particular goods.

    I approached a lady at work because I thought she was wearing the paul smith backwards cardigan. It was just something she bough 15 or so years ago. Didn't stop it from looking good on her. Same with a lady that wore the shit out of my payless x isabel collab shoes. We were boardline flirting hard.

    Great idea, someone get this going!

    I've got a couple items with weird blends (e.g. cashmere+silk+metal) to contribute. I'm also curious about boiled polyester -- I would have thought it would just melt or slough in extreme heat, it's essentially just made of bottle plastic isn't it?

    Yup, that's Mail-Moth.

    Shah, are you sure the X-10 won't irritate you after a while with its fixed lens? You seem like a guy who likes options :)

    EDIT - The camera is damned sweet though and I would definitely cop if it was within easy reach...

    well, you're absolutely right. i still use interchangeable lens systems but with film. it's just not convenient for travelling, at least not when i don't intend to set time aside for photography. so for stealth/street shooting i'd need something small with a fixed lens, and the x10 offers enough even in terms of the overused and clichéd shallow depth of focus that is polluting internet blogs with 0 thought of what is being done

    When I am old and gray and full of sleep, I'd like to dress like that gentlemen.

    I may or may not be currently working on a street series with the subject out of focus and background in sharp focus as an antithesis to this. there is more of a direction to it than just that but I can't give everything away on the internet!

    I like my depth of field like I like my blogs. Exceedingly shallow.

    Is this in any way related to your job as a writer for a certain film industry or is this a different thing altogether? :hide:
