    Also, Ron Artest agrees with you on Lin needing some leather in his life:

    Q: Did the Lakers talk about him in the locker room?

    A: Do we talk about him? Yeah, we talk about him. We think he needs a better haircut. I don’t like that style. You’re in New York, the fashion capital. Change your haircut, OK? You’re a star now. Wear some shades. Shades, OK? Put down the nerdy Harvard book glasses. Put on some black shades, OK? With some leather pants. Change your style. Fashion.

    Q: Do you wear leather pants?

    A: No, I won’t wear them, but he should wear leather pants. He’s the type of guy who should wear leather pants, some nice shoes and change his fashion. You’re Jeremy Lin, for godsakes. You know what I’m saying? You know? Put down that law book, stop reading the New York Times and start reading the Daily News. Newsday, that’s the one. I like that one because there’s always color in that one. What else? Wall Street Journal. Get some swag. You’re in New York City. Put your hat to the back, too. Put your hat on backwards. Come to practice with your pants sagging and just tell them, 'I don’t feel like practicing.' Practice? You know? Practice? And wear an Iverson jersey. You know? Come to practice with a cigar. Lit. 'I’m Jeremy Lin.' You know? He should change. We're all excited to play tonight. It’s like the first time for everybody. Everybody’s excited. Kobe’s excited. He wants to get 50. He wants to welcome Jeremy Lin to his new level.

    Ron Artest is mentally ill, but he's right in this case, Jeremy Lin looks like he's a 9-5 at Microsoft, not starting point guard for the Knicks. Jeremy Lin x TOJ needs to happen to save Asian-America.

    Still working on those; got some connections with some denim makers and that's a road to walk, and then for glasses I got a new contact today, guy is a manager of a famous singer as his dayjob but privately is an eyewear expert and has a lot of fashion connections here in Japan, lol. I am gonna talk to him soon about my ideas.

    Random question re: jeans - Any chance the front pocket openings will be slightly more generous than those on your run-of-the-mill raw denim? Small pockets v. big hands --> consistent frustration, having to stand up to retrieve phone, &c. (I'm sure I'm not the only person who's run into this issue).

    I've never figured out how this could be addressed without moving the front pair of belt loops so close together they'd practically touch each other.

    so true, that awkward moment at gathering where you have to stand up at a table to get your phone, ensuring stares of confusion form those around...

    You can't get paid in college, he went undrafted so his rookie contract was at the minimum for an NBA player, he was cut before finishing that contract, and he was sleeping on couches his first two weeks with the Knicks.

    So yeah, what he's getting paid now is many times more what he's ever seen. There's little chance he was a millionaire before 2012.
