    It'll probably be some sort of hat-pulling process with a few minor changes to (hopefully) prevent crazy shipping. You won't be exchanging gifts with a single person, if that makes any sense. It'll be more like one long chain looping back on itself or, more realistically, something like this:

    Agree with both of you. Been a lot more interest than i expected. Lets say... Dec. 7? And push to shipping deadline to Jan 18th to give people more time?

    I'm pretty interested in doing this but I dislike the idea of clothing being a part of it. Not that I really expect clothes to be a common thing people send, but honestly no one knows the recipient's tastes better than himself. If it doesn't fit his wardrobe (or fit in general) it leads to a sort of awkward situation. Furthermore, we all have access to pretty much the same clothes (even if some places are only brick and mortar, you can usually find a proxy). I also think that garments would indicate a poorly thought out gift. It would be way neater to get something more special from the sender's locale and other stuff that I hadn't really shown previous interest in, or stuff parallel to my own interests but in a form not previously delved into (e.g. buying a fashion book for someone on here even though they've never studied fashion like that). I'm always on the hunt for new clothes, and receiving a package with clothes wouldn't be all that exciting.

    But it's up to the person gifting. For some people here I would know exactly what to send them clothes-wise, and for those that I don't know I wouldn't send it. No big deal.

    I think it's a guideline... IE if you find what someones grail is and you find it. y'know..

    I would agree that if someone found something I'm looking really hard for like the sneakers in my sig I would be quite thrilled. However, I don't think my sender would either A find them before me, nor B be willing to spend them money on them (or any other 'grail'). People aren't going to be sending each other hundreds of dollars worth of jawns, which is what it really costs for something special.

    I don't really see anything wrong with sending clothes, just use your better judgement. IIRC sufu mostly sent t-shirts and basics, though there were a couple of TOJ oxfords...

    It seems I stand outside the norm but I wouldn't be very excited about 'basics'. Maybe if I do participate my sender will read this thread well enough to realize not to send me clothes :nodding:

    Thanks for putting this together. XS/S, 28" waist, 8.5/9 shoes.

    EDIT: Yeah, fuck clothes. I'm in gym wear 90% of the time anyways. I want local treats, like your favorite snacks(meatless please lol) or coffees/teas.

    Honestly, a t shirt or socks is about the extent of what I would send someone for clothes. I know how picky you guys are.

    Yeah, I prefer local stuff over clothes, because I already buy the clothes I want.

    Show me somethings from where you live!
