    There was a guy wearing a pair of black on black Rick ramones in the snow the other day and I couldn't help but think the same thing. Just wore them with some faded black skinnies and a generic nylon puffer. Looked good, and I usually hate the ramones.

    more of the "pedaled" brand. i first noticed some wild pieces they had on yoox. almost hit you up about them actually, as it seemed they would look good on you. gone now. had never heard of the brand so didn't know what to expect of it. then i saw it for sale on nmwa and that sparked my interest even more!

    also...

    Just had an order for a Junya Watanabe Duvetica down jacket cancelled because they "don't accept foreign credit cards" despite the fact that I used a Japanese credit card... not buying from these jerks, thanks for saving me $800

    Another winter in the Uni-Qlo down jacket, best 50 bucks ever spent:

    if you really don't think there are totally livable portions of berkeley and oakland (the non-'legit ghetto' portions), I'm not sure whether you congratulate your thoroughly sheltered existence or pity your utter lack of perspective

    I'd probably prefer to live in oakland to someplace like san mateo--texture's what makes life interesting

    I went TTS and it's the warmest non-technical jacket I own - it's 680 fill and quite substantial between the wool outer and the down fill. Not like the ultralight down jackets at all, proper winter outerwear.

    Oh berkeley is great as are parts of oakland which is definitely up and coming... and marin is beautiful if you count that as east bay (not sure to be honest my grasp of geography is pretty weak), but don't knock san mateo its actually pretty awesome. Downtown is pretty badass and has some of the best asian food norcal has to offer. Amazing ramen, my favorite chinese restaurant and the best boba in the bay oh and good sushi too from what I understand (I don't eat seafood, but my family/friends love a few spots).

    I've spent enough time in and around Oakland to never want to live there - even the nice areas, as they're surrounded by wasteland. Berkeley hills maybe and I went to Cal. Walnut Creek too far. San Mateo >>>> Oakland for buying a home, especially if you're raising a family - even if you're not.

    T, FTFY. The Bay Area is a nightmarish landscape of suburbia, office parks, and highways. The only nice parts are so exorbitantly priced that living there requires you *and* your spouse to have won the acquisition/IPO lottery. That I will one day have to move there to further my career is a constant source of dread.

    All american cities are pretty damn ugly. NYC being the ugliest, filthiest, and stinkiest of all. But if you wanna tread on the hamster wheel that's where you gotta go.

    Was that via Rakuten? I've had similar problems (with a different company). I think basically they see a foreign name and cancel the order. In my case, they said the same thing as was said to you (also despite my Japanese credit card), then told me to reorder with paypal. So I did, and then they cancelled the order again and told me that they only accepted paypal for foreign orders, and did I have a credit card?!!! I said that I'd ordered with a Japanese credit card in the first place but that they had cancelled it. Then they just stopped communicating...

    PS: I also have a Uniqlo winter coat - but it's an old one from the 2009 Kiminori Morishita collab that I bought off someone on here. I don't really need much more for a Tokyo winter.
