    No, any real baller would get Marc Jacobs or Paul Smith pencils.

    All those colors are ghastly..

    Kind of why I'm having such a hard time, if you were talking to me. I've seen a color similar to orange in RMWs, and the burgundy could maybe work, but the only one that doesn't feel too overtly guady to me is the blue...which is apparently purple. There's a few gucci boots for sale on here I might look into further, but I'm not big on used shoes.

    Actually that pencil is a Moncler x Sanford collab... the other side contains a blackwatch plaid motif.
    Hand painted by gnomes.

    No. Dixon-Ticonderoga no. 2 or nothing. [​IMG] Look at those classic lines. That's timeless style right there. It's not following any trends like these new fangled pencil manufacturers. And you know it's quality since it's been made in the USA for over 200 years now. That's heritage you can count on.

    Ticonderogas were treated like legendary items in my high school, and probably used as currency. They were the unofficial pencil of greatness.

    To be used at the user's discretion, but misuse constituted a day of scorn from one's peers.

    Do it.

    Fuck that. I'll take a non-American nazi German pencil any day [​IMG] Ticonderoga looks downright chubby by comparison. Look at the brutalist lines of the FB. Edit: I bet Jil Sander uses Faber Castell

    Lol at your dainty imported pencil. No eraser? What kind of utility can you get out of that? I bet after just a little hard wear, you'd be down to a nub while a Dixon Ticonderoga, with it's Made in the USA quality, will keep going on and on. And don't forgot about the attached eraser that will keep you mistake free for the life of your pencil.
