  1. Lets Talk Sandals.

    ended up buying suicoke on black friday. the consensus seems to be that they fit small, although i found the opposite: initially ordered my normal sneaker size (US12), but needed to go down to an 11.
  2. new balance

    i might gamble with a US 11, although i don't think i've ever worn that size in a sneaker before.
  3. new balance

    man 998s fit huge which is in stark contrast to my experience with all other nb models which i usually find tts or a little small. sucks since i can't return these.

    what's teva like - go with my normal US sneaker size?
  5. china :: hong kong :: general

    food highlights: - 8 1/2 otto e mezzo bombana (even the bread basket is nuts. lots of rich pompous dickheads around though, which i guess is to be expected at a joint with 3 michelin stars) - tin lung heen (crazy view + the best service i've ever experienced) - mak un kee (shrimp wonton is absolutely incredible. pork wonton had a very weird texture to me which i didn't like) - joy hing (i got the pork and gf ordered goose. lots of reviews say they are 'rude' but i found everyone very nice. super chaotic and zero room to move inside, though. was expecting tons of tourists because i think it was on bourdain's show, but no other whiteboys around) - ronin (i don't drink but they have wilkinsons ginger ale so was happy. pleasantly surprised by not one but two eel options on the menu) - yardbird (both yardbird and ronin have the same owners: preferred ronin. where ronin is pretty much a formal bar/wannabe izakaya with a seafood-focused menu, yardbird is more casual and revolves entirely around chicken. literally all the yardbird staff seemed like expats which was odd) - din tai fung (i always try and visit a DTF wherever i go. always reliable. big fan) coffee: - elephant grounds (multiple locations, i went to mid-levels: very nice) - cupping room (multiple locations as well, went to mid-levels. great coffee but super shitty service) - omotesando koffee (amazing all-round) - espresso alchemy (okay at best. store is in a weird location in the middle of a sports mall) - n1 (okay again, shop was a bit grotty though) - kubrick (surprisingly good, but i went there for the magazine selection as opposed to coffee) buy the sufu guide and support the site too.

    it's funny that BF's recent picture is considered 'tight' - only a few years ago he would have been told to size down ad nauseum. looks good to me as is.

    not veilance, but does anyone stock the arro 22 that will ship to australia other than mr. porter? i know australia is hardly suited to shells etc, but i've never understood how shitty their distribution is here - even the 'smaller' (in comparison to the north face etc) outdoors brands such as mont-bell all have a way better presence.

    with the exception of a shirt, i don't button the bottom on anything (e.g. cardigan). no bueno.

    http://doek.jp/stockists/ i actually went to the HK store and didn't see any, just buzz rickson sneakers.
  10. china :: hong kong :: general

    just returned to australia after from an 8 day HK holiday. unfortunately we lost one entire day and night due to a T8 typhoon warning (entire city basically shut down), although we left the hotel to basically walk a lap and it didn't seem that bad. cannot fathom how MALLS close down in that, but regardless, we had an amazing trip and i couldn't help but automatically contrast it to singapore which i visited in may. ate at everywhere from local dim sum to michelin starred italian. i realised that i am melancholic leaving destinations these days, as i realise that realistically i am probably never going to visit them again due to time/money/wanting to travel to so many other locations. accomodation (hotel icon) was fantastic and sufu guide was pretty good too. edit: have lots of coffee and food recommendations if needed.

    i think it'll happen even if labor gets in.
  12. china :: hong kong :: general

    so we ended up going to yardbird as well. same great service, but i think it paled in comparison to ronin in every other area. the price wasn't that different either.
  13. china :: hong kong :: general

    we ended up going to ronin instead (think it's owned by the same people) - amazing!
  14. video games ruined my life

    picked up my SNES classic today, spent about 6hrs straight on earthbound - what a game!
  15. coffee anyone?

    freeman can front all he wants, but it was obvious he was purely after $$$ at a certain point years ago. hats off to him, though.
