    I wish I could hear you say this out loud. The ad hoc "phonetic" spellings around here are riotous.


    air-MEZZ is as correct as any English rendering

    that's true of pronunciation with the correct Spanish "lisp"... same with Barcelona. there's a fine line between pronouncing something correctly and sounding like a douche.... much like weather people or newscasters that go on sudden rhetorical flourishes of pronunciation with foreign place names etc. Some names like Hermes and Givenchy have one pronunciation but others like Balenciaga may have idiomatic variations. Many words we use in English do this as well like chocolatier, endive, etc.


    yep.


    damn... if they're working in the store I would pray they could say the name correctly!! :wow:


    @ Eternal Drake... that's Hiromi in your avatar?? :slayer:

    ^ I lived in Barcelona for a bit, though, so I always read it in the Spanish pronunciation since it's, well, Spanish.

    Clothes and accessories have been my obsession from since I was in, about grade 4, when I went to Hong Kong, and really, had the express interest in getting a lot of Polo. My aunt said that people from Canada were way behind (not a lie, especially in the early 80s), and from then on, I read everything about fashion, and menswear in particular, obsessively. So, doubt that I'll get tired of clothes.

    My personal style has been evolving only very slowly, and I'm very comfortable with that, but I'm very always interested in incorporating new elements, changing my silhouette subtly, etc... And my interest in the industry in general, especially the more and more I am part of that, grows more and more. I think that it's pretty common to have interest in hobbies wax and wane, but a passion never goes away, especially when there is something that sustains it.

    Usually, they are a bit faster, but they are getting tons of new stuff in, and I'm sure that their fulfillment department is scrambling, especially since it seems that their online and offline inventories are not separate, and the store is fairly large and always busy (unlike some other stores, which are small, have lull periods, and it's easy to pull merchandise).

    Great, man. With all the cool shit you own, you could look pretty badass riding a ninja. Right now I´ve got a small yamaha fz16, which was great to start with because it´s only 150 cc (plus, it´s a cool looking bike at a very good price), but the kawasaki ninja has a been a favorite of mine for some time. Here I think you can get the 250 for around US$8000.

    Haha, I used to own an s13/sil80, and it definitely didn't save me money. Don't think I know anybody with a 240 who saves money because of it. But Lane, you'll love the bike, and it seems like it would fit you pretty well.
