huh, was it TNT? Nomad? Maybe Uncle Otis? Those SA's are all sorts of steezy internet lurker types.


Twice this week I've stopped a guy with a filson bag and boat shoes, like "oh hey nice Filson there, is that the 257? where's you get it?", expecting it to turn to discussions about the internet... instead I just get "oh this, dunno, just bought it at a local store".

This is hilarious but also pretty weird. All kinds of people read this forum..

I think we can all agree we'd rather be hatefully remembered than forgotten. Great job, OP. What store was it?

I live in michigan and whenever I come across someone else rocking dry denim or something obviously "internet influenced", we just kinda give each other a nod. I was out with a girl for like the second time and when a random guy asked me about my jeans and we got to talking about sf and sufu she was weirded out and once I explained it to her, she was even more weirded out. She didn't get a third date LOL

Dry denim is sorta like having a kid or herpes, you wait til you know a person really likea you before you tell them about it.

i don't think raw jeans are just worn by denim nerds anymore.

^+1 dude, I mean you run across people from Styleforum at random maybe once in a blue moon, but the chance to talk to a real live GIRL?? That shit is rare, you have to be on that! Might not find another one for the rest of your life, they're like unicorns.

Speaking of Sydneys, I heard there was a pretty serious fire above the store this weekend. I'm not in Toronto right now, so I'm not sure if the store was part of the fire, but I think they must of at least suffered quite a bit of water damage.

Haven't really had any experiences like these, though I do see this guy with imperials around school sometimes and the SA at a local "boutique" tries to teach me about Nudies a lot.
