    I believe they are just the London boot model, but no speed hooks. def inspired by Fuuma's pair, but I think he went with the wingtip and nowegian sole. I went P2 last with plain double sole.

    @Eddiee
    got those from eBay last year. I always keep an eye for old HL stuff. that season was so good.

    I was going to say I am lazy and all black is easy, but I'm gonna go with BCD's explanation :) a white dress shirt would probably be more in keeping with the formal jacket.

    also, crazy Junya pants are the best!

    can't say I would want chicken sashimi again. I like my poulty cooked for hours in red wine.

    I like mine roasted over an open fire, ale in hand, while the hounds tussle for bones behind my merry band and me. As night falls we sing songs of the Old Country; of love lost and love found, of the lives and the sorrows we left behind. While the stars whirl above us the camp goes quiet; we are lost in reminiscence or reflection. All men have regrets, but under the loving gaze of the moon it is easy to dream of better tomorrows.

    I like mine deep fried in a bucket. Maybe with a side of rice and beans.

    Or, after a long mountain run, with waffles and eggs.

    I heard about this on NPR a week or so ago. It's interesting, but I think a bit flawed as well. I don't think anyone is surprised to find out that people's perceptions can be influenced by preconceptions developed or imparted by marketing and image information, but I would really like to know the results of the subjects' tastes of the wines completely blind. For instance, some people just have shitty taste and you might serve them a nicely aged Silver Oak cabernet and they would still think it sucks regardless. I have a hard time believing, however, that if you pumped me in some Two Buck Chuck and told me it's Silver Oak cab that I would be convinced… I don't buy it completely.

    Yea sure, but the point with the study I linked was more that peoples expectations based on "marketing" scale activity in expected utility - related areas.

    I think there probably is a strong placebo like effect with taste
