I’m not gonna post pics. Just genuinely curious if people are trying to turn it into a thing like denim. I like ponchos in theory but then I see pics and think it looks costumey. Big hats are just stupid looking imho. I mean, some dude somewhere is wearing a ridiculous looking hat that looks like a prop from Blazing Saddles and he actually thinks it looks good. “Mongo pawn in game of life.” lol

I always respect seeing a guy wearing a weird hat. I can't pull off weird hats, they make me self-conscious. But when I see a guy wearing a weird hat, in my mind a say "respect", cause they're giving the world something to look at - creating content for folks to react to. Wish I saw more.

That may be one of the saddest things I have read on the the ole WWW for quite some time. I'm guessing you're in your late 20's early 30's?

Really?  I fully understand what @Todd Shelton is saying.  If you don't take fashion and clothing too seriously it's just something to look at.  How different is somebody wearing a weird hat to somebody driving around some insanely visually-loud custom car?  

The world of clothing and fashion would be so boring, and a place like Supertalk probably wouldn't even exist, if the people who took chances and pushed the boundaries of fashion didn't exist.

I was reacting to the notion of "creating content for folks to react to", that's why I edited the original statement in my reply. I couldn't care less about "fashion", however you choose to define it.

The notion that everyone everywhere is contriving every aspect of their life, including wearing a hat, apparently, in order to create "content" for folks to react to is a sad and depressing thought and one of the worst aspects of the world of social media. Maybe they're just wearing a kooky hat, not "creating content for folks to react to".

I just want a hat from HW Dog and Co.  Their foldable traveler hat has been on my wish list for a while.

Yeah, but if Zidane were a Sufu or SF member he would say, "I've got big thighs".

Except he would be legit.

 

Interestingly, he's in Madrid, no? Tightest man jeans I ever saw in my life was in Madrid.

Those are not big calves, nor thighs for that matter.

Always with the talk of people's leg size?! Seriously - why is it that you always comment or make reference specifically to your own or others leg size?

There, let me remove the offending comment. It didn't add anythi.g anyways.

I really want a silver wallet chain.  Good Art asks for too much as I can get it cheaper overseas.  I can only imagine how much Lynch costs.  My limit would be $700-1200.  Once I get that, I'll sell my brass IH chain I don't wear as much as its very long.  

Brass chains leave chain fades on denim btw if you're into that.  They leave a ring on the denim after long periods of wear.

I actually recently made myself a silver one, but I use it for my keys. Designing the S hook or clasp is actually the hardest part.

Levi's IPO today - first time they have traded stock publicly in 2 decades

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-03-19/levi-strauss-ipo-orders-are-said-directed-above-price-range

 

Anyone interested in buying stock or more worried about how this will increase profit chasing and affect the product they offer both in terms of quality and range?

I hope LVC survives this long term.

^ yeah they floated at approx 30 % above the initial offering! 

Cone's dead and Levis floated - this is the start (continuation) of the end!

^^I just posted this in the LVC thread. We shall see. I can't imagine Levi's getting rid of STF 501s but LVC would seem to be imperiled unless someone can show its making a profit. Actually, I'd be fine if LVC was just a range of limited production jeans/jackets, minus the other stuff that just seems a bit costumey...

I don't see how LVC can make sense for them.

Well, when the LVC 501s I ordered from those f**ckers in San Francisco came out to almost CDN500, SOMEONE is making money.

(yeah, I refused the shipment. F*ck those guys)

Anyone else ever find themselves in a stylistic rut of sorts? I don't see much that I'm really compelled to buy these days.
I wear the same like 5 to 10 shirts/t-shirts almost all the time, and a pair of Roy or Ooe jeans daily. Nothing else does it for me these days.
Sure when something new from Roy or Ooe comes out I'll buy it from a collection standpoint, I know what I like. But outside of that there's not much that does it for me.
Maybe it's time I take some time off from the forums or something. :unsure:

^ Just enjoy what clothing you have and focus on your other interests, I’m sure that garment-wise, something will come along to pique your curiosity before too long.

That's what I've been realizing I guess, just enjoy what I have and something will come along eventually.
And it's good for my wallet too!

Kind of getting to that point as well @Broark. Flannels are a great example. Buy a ton, only wear about three of them a majority of the time, sold the others off. 

I'm noticing myself wanting to get more jeans just for my collection, not necessarily to wear right away, which I have never done in the past or had the desire to do so. I haven't done that with any other garment yet either, just jeans.  

I've been liking more and more military inspired stuff, so I've been slowly adding stuff based on that. I am sure I will move on to something else after that but who knows. 

I am much more discerning when looking at stuff lately though.
