    no, I bought this stuff at IF boutique. Thats why I dont got pics also.

    speaking of which, love the SAs there, except for this dumb black girl working the counter that day who was an absolute dunce.


    Did you like the selection there? That's one of the places I'm pretty excited about checking out. And, of course, I'll have to make a pilgrimage to atelier.

    IF is pretty cool, definitely worth checking out. There's a lot of stuff you can't see elsewhere like Paul Hardnen, etc.

    Got my Bless shorts, fucking huge so hard to figure out how to wear them; guess I'll wear them as an oversized wrap over some jeans or pants.

    yup, Ive been there before but they didnt have anything in my size. This time they had a hefty amount of goods that I got to enjoy trying on. I think a person with your type of style will love it because they have a pretty good variety of items there. Its the only boutique in the US that carries the Soloist as well. I was absolutely blown away by how amazing every piece from that collection is. Also, to clarify so I dont seem like an asshole. The girl at the counter inadvertently called me and my brother homosexuals even though I clarified that he was my brother she said if you guys were a couple you would have been perfect...Who says that shit? Guy helping me out got pissed at her, lol. I know jet will enjoy this though.

    My wife is a gadget nerd, and got hers pretty much the day it came out. My kids love it for games nd movies as well. Me, I am a luddite, and have not touched the thing. What are it's best qualities?

    It's a cool shop. I'll probably check it out if I have time, in a couple of weeks. I'll freely admit, this is the one shop I was unfamiliar with, that jet schooled me on. Of course, he wasn't nice about it, but that's sort of par for the course.

    For the most part, yes but it seems perfect for travelling. I was looking to get a netbook for like a year now but the iPad (or a tablet) seems like a better choice. You can watch movies (a plus for me since I have a Netflix subscription, I can also stream movies from my PC), reading e-books/e-magazines/e-comics, used as a notepad (I use this on my iphone more than I expected), games and can be a sketchbook too, this apps pretty bad-ass:

    There are a lot of other apps too, I've barely started playing with it but it seems to be capable of a lot of things like GPS, work presentations, file management, etc...
