    real ramen (not 35¢ top ramen shit) from a japanese owned ramen house (where there are like 20+ variety to choose from, you can customize the soup base, noodle firmness, oiliness etc) > overpriced clothes

    a side of gyoza def makes it even better

    Ramen for those in the Bay Area: http://www.yelp.com/biz/santa-ramen-san-mateo-2. Go on a weekday so you don't have to wait 1/2 an hour in line.

    Nice pickups. How's the quality? I've never seen Chai stuff in SF.

    ...and Santa Ramen is the shit.

    I like that first t under the jacket.

    Copped a lanvin blazer and some comme shorts, both stuff on the hit list for awhile. This has turned out to be an expensive week.

    yes! this is why i'm going to tokyo in a few weeks. after the cost of travel and ramen+gyoza, I won't have any money for clothes. so worth it.

    My best TK Maxx pickup in ages (for you yanks who are unfortunate enough not to have TK - it's a chain spread across the UKwhich specialies in selling designer label clothing shoes and other gubbins at greatly reduced prices - seconds, end of season, last season stock, compnaies which have gone under etc. You get huge amounts of shite, but if you look reguarly, a fair amount of real gems are there for the er, buying) £599 (approx $1200) rrp, TK for £150 (approx $300) Belstaff Lawrence Blouson. I need to stop finding 'cheap' Belstaff jackets. That's three in as many months! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    ^^ awesome find. I know of many Brits that find great shit at TK Maxx...like baracuta G9s for 20GBP or something ridiculous like that. Our own "TJ Maxx" is always garbage.

    yes indeed. I got an amazing tweed G9 for £40 which turned out a little too large for me so I sold on about 3 months ago for more than I paid. Also picked up one of the lightweight G9s for £18 (roughly $36). I think half my wardrobe is from TK haha. Very good for trainers and shoes as well.

    I'm lucky in that within a 30 mile radius, I've got 5 branches, including one of the flagship stores.

    You guys need to get a room and just get rid of the tension. You can flip heads or tails who gets to be the girl.

    Ya, they're called magnums. Can't say I'm surprised you didn't know that.

    TJ Maxx (US) owns TK Maxx (UK), they had to call it TK Maxx in the UK because of another discount chain store called TJ Hughes. Nice find on the jacket, I was back in England a few weeks ago and checked out one of the stores, didn't see anything as good as your Belstaff.
