    Sure there is the sz philosopher/artiste contingent, but I think tech geeks make up a big portion of the market. Not the more recent startup bro contingent (though some of that too), but I'm mostly thinking of the older unix/cyberpunk, long haired geek crowd.

    Edit: dickskin boots -- write sruli recht. may require a kickstarter at this stage in his design career.

    Your pose is really awkward dude. You look like your shuddering from a guy next to you about to hit you with a pan

    Regis I just wore my cream viscose for the first time today after getting it back from the cleaners. It. Is. The. Shit.
    Might be tempted to get one of the current season viscose, holes and all, if it makes it to sales.

    I mean, it's hardly sincere, it's just playing into the whole "luxe" concierge service of Mr Porter, and there are other, far better stores I've bought at to where it's the same person answering the emails, posting your package, and including a nice handwritten note or postcard
    Personally I hate stores like Mr Porter - they don't particularly care about clothing, they're in it for the money - it shows in the utterly non-cohesive brand line-up, the extremely boring buys, the fact that they jump onto brands seasons and seasons after smaller boutiques. Thanks to their backers they can do their ridiculous sales, offer return shipping, and all the other things that make it harder for smaller, directional boutiques to compete.

    Who the fuck cares if they are sincere? That is some hipster nonsense. Free shipping is free shipping.

    About that - is Gundam Unicorn actually worth watching? The unicorn part is kind of a turn-off. On the other hand, The Last Unicorn was a pretty damn good movie if you fast-forward through the singing part near the end (0), so maybe I shouldn't be so harsh on unicorns.

    Lol you're treating them with the same standards as a brand or designer. They are resellers, that's all they are, they buy shit direct and flip it to you for a higher price. Expecting a reseller to embrace "art" is nonsense
