    How is the durability on the titanium case? I know titanium as material is pretty durable, but how about scratch resistance? I had the impression that it is a bit softer than ss, but maybe the matte finish does a good job of hiding scratches.

    Oh god gas mileage is terrible! 12-13mpg for me in Chicago. I’ve also spent a fair amount on (routine!) maintenance despite buying it with only 8k miles (~26k now). I think the 20k mile scheduled maintenance was around 3k with labor. Still don’t know if all the stuff that was on the maintenance schedule was necessary... im also with you on the wheels and tire package (which I also don’t have). I’ve gotten two flats that ended up needing a tow due to 1. No wheel lock key given to me when purchased, and 2. Faulty spare that wouldn’t inflate. Thankfully the tows were covered... the tires and labor weren’t cheap that said, I plan to do it all again with a Porsche the next time I need something new

    Have a 2015 Macan S myself. Love it so much! It's definitely not a family car, however, especially with a car seat. No way it fits behind the driver's seat and even the passenger seat has to be pushed way forward. I test Drove a (used) Turbo when I was shopping a couple of years ago, but had to pass on it. It was in the budget, but I am pretty sure it was previously owned by an old lady. It was an ugly gold color and had the very basic 19" wheels. I would have had to spent a few grand getting a wrap and new wheels. The top of the line club leather interior, brutal acceleration, and great handling had me strongly considering it however!

    Maybe the best looking piece of denim I’ve ever seen

    This is wild. Nearly two days later and almost all sizes are still available. Never thought I’d see the day (again, after 2016)

    In the opening paragraph the author says: ”Across the internet, you’ll find articles, forums — hell, entire websites — devoted to the art of denim maintenance. Some connoisseurs insist you need to wait a year before washing jeans if you want Instagram-worthy fades; in the meantime, they suggest, getting the stink out is as easy as throwing them in the freezer.” But then all of the experts they interview say this is silly.

    That’s great to hear about the fabric. I was wearing the black Cody last night and told my wife I ordered the same shirt in a brown corduroy. Her first comment was “Did you order it in a bigger size?”. Haha, I don’t think I need it in a bigger size but definitely good to hear the fabric has some give to it.

    Was waiting for months to see if you’d get the corduroy Cody Shirts, and was a bit bummed when the first shipment came in a few weeks ago. Really glad you ended up ordering these and Instacopped the brown one. I have the black denim, olive trigger shirt, and now this. Not sure why I’m sleeping on the indigo denim one...

    My lot 64 Okinawa had a raw patch, but I saw a few examples in store of the ‘44 and ‘54 with patches that looked much more aged, despite raw fabric.

    Yea no one can argue that they are overpriced from an economic perspective. Would probably still sell out if they were sold for the $600+ Kiya threw out there.

    What aspect of the jeans are you referring to? I’ve heard many people comment that ooe stitching is as good or better than Roy. However, although I’ve Never seen a pair in person, ooe look like just a basic pair of very well made jeans, whereas Roy jeans ooze creativity, with all the crazy yet still hidden details. Im not sure those details can qualify them as better jeans, but to my eyes there still appears to be something to Roy jeans that even Ooe can’t reproduce.

    Looks in way better shape than mine! Best of luck selling. Trading in for something else?

    I know it’s a bit more of a modern interpretation but I would highly recommend the ironheart n1 over any repro version. Their cuts are more in line with a modern aesthetic. I am 6’0” 195lbs broad shoulders big chest and always have trouble getting shirts from these Japanese companies to fit. Shoulders, chest, and sleeves in large are usually too small and body / length in XL is usually too big. Size large in the ironheart n1 fits me great. I think you’re a bit shorter than me but you’ll probably have better luck getting ironheart to fit. You may still need to tailor the sleeve length but I think the rest of the body and sleeve volume will be more to your liking.
