    What’s the ring sting rating on the hot sauce? 10 being “it’s not funny my ass is on fire.”

    UES Denim

    Any of you have experience with UES’s knits, especially their hoody? I was looking at Withered Fig’s sizing recommendations for UES henleys and they say to size up 2 from your western size, 1 up from your Japanese size. Is this your experience with the hoodie as well?
  4. Shit, didn’t know Gift of Gab died. Love Blackalicious
  5. I'll show those whippersnappers how to do a face plant :)
  6. Thinking about getting back into skateboarding. Any tips on what size board I should get? I wear a size 10 shoe so I’m thinking 8.5”. I’ll probably break my hip but life’s too short

    One thing I’ve noticed about social media is the repetition, as mentioned, or what I call copy cat syndrome. That is to say, people like to mimic each other whether it’s IG, Tik Tok or YouTube just to get likes. My son watches a lot of YouTubers play Minecraft and one of the observations I made was how they all say, “let’s go!” It’s like clockwork. I don’t understand why this happens but it’s an annoying phenomenon.

    *beats dead horse* please, for the love of God, stop with the flat lays on IG. There’s nothing that screams I’ve run out of ideas more than a flat lay. Also, dudes that take staged pics of themselves kneeling to adjust the cuff on their denim must be launched into a hornets nest. *rant over*

    Runabout hasn’t had stock of the Starborn jacket in months.

    Freewheelers, Bootleggers Reunion, Bubo, etc.

    I like this piece as well. Wished it had two chest pockets but it’s not a deal breaker

    I didn’t mean he should scale back, I meant scale as in grow. He’s one person doing everything, allegedly, which means he should hire more workers to help him catch up on all the back orders he has. The guy is either very stupid or greedy/cheap.

    The odd thing for me is that he seems unable to or unwilling to scale his business. I mean, if you’re backlogged then the sensible thing to do is hire more people. Either way, sh*tty business model. Can’t believe anyone follows this Dwight Yoakam wannabe on IG
  14. Used to own that 10”. Sold it yrs ago. Love the Heliocentrics too
  15. Yeah, I came across several of those sites already. The ones I looked at either didn’t have the brand I was looking for or the model I wanted. came across https://www.digimart.net/help/english.html which is a guitar search engine for shops that ship overseas. Gonna look through that now
  16. I’ll give zen a go and see if it works
  17. Sadly, I don’t trust Zen Market. Read a bunch of negative comments about them in the last year and it made me apprehensive about buying through them, especially an expensive guitar. Of course, the pandemic/lockdowns could’ve been the source of bad experiences but I’m not sure if I’d take the chance
  18. Yes. But, I was hoping to find someplace direct from Japan that might have JP prices. The couple I came across on Reverb were local pick up only (in a different state). I figured since a lot of you buy denim directly from Japan there has to be a place to buy guitars directly from Japan
  19. Not denim related but do any of you know of any Japanese guitar shops that ship to the US? I know a few of you are musicians so might know. I’m thinking of buying an electric guitar (to learn) but wanted something made in Japan. Was looking at ESP or Jackson. I’ve seen quite a few for sale on EBay but they’re kinda spendy. Hoping I might be able to source one well under $1000...maybe $500-$750

    Same thing happens to my right front pocket as well, like clockwork. Usually the top starts to fray and then I get a hole in the pocket lining. From taking my keys in and out daily

    Yep. I knew a guy who always referred to himself as ‘vegetarian’ even though he ate fish. Never understood why he didn’t just refer to himself as pescatarian. Oh, and he used to work for Green Peace as well lol. Maybe he thought he was earning woke bonus points so as not to offend anyone
