Do you do tongue hoola hoops with the pineapple ring before consuming?

 

Pineapple ring? it's not Can't Cook Won't Cook @MJF9 they're just chunks of fresh pineapple... it gives me a bit of a cough after eating it too :sad:

Cut the outter skin off first Neal, it’s a bit prickly and just enjoy the smooth inner flesh. I know it sounds mad but it works! :D

Bromelian enzymes @MJF9. It breaks down proteins. Good for tenderising cheap meats and will irritate mouth and tongue.

@Spiraltoy good to see a proper answer, instead of this hoola hoop and prickly flesh tomfoolery

Well, as much as I come here for the tomfoolery, at some point someone have to step up and give a factual answer. Right?
Now, all continue being amusing!

It’s too exotic for your northern palette. You can’t just undo years of genetics like that. You need to stick to Greggs.

I'm looking for a good pair of *clear acetate* sunglasses, similar to the Entourage of 7 Beacon sunglasses (seen in the "Ford v. Ferrari" movie, which I recommend):

Could people recommend to me good quality, not made in China, brands available *online* in the US? Happy to pay for premium manufacturing and materials, not so much for branding.

I've been looking at Moscot (MiC), Oliver Peoples (Luxotica...), Garrett Leigh (MiC), Article One, Dita, Allyn Scura, Tart, & Komono, but I'm probably missing some other makers because I'm new to this.

Try Archibald London (archibaldlondon.com) – all their frames are handmade in Japan, can't remember the prefecture but it's the acetate frame version of our denim haunts. I have a pair of the Blaksmiths as my daily prescription glasses; been thinking about ordering another pair for sunnies when funds permit (not that they're expensive – very competitively priced). They'll also mail out testing kits with a few frames in the US or UK, but I'd imagine the current situation has put that on hold...

What about windbreakers/rain jackets? My old Patagonia jacket is on its last legs, and im in the market for another one. Anyone have a favorite?

All time favourite windbreaker would be Nike's early blue label 1980's Windrunner in blu/red with the screen printed logo before they moved to embroidery

Nowadays, i wear Gorewear C7 (race-fit) for cycling, it's a ridiculous piece of kit, 100% waterproof, shakedry and weighs in at less than 100g for the medium.

Now that Rakuten Global Market has been officially closed for a few weeks, was wondering what folks are using as their preferred alternates?  I'm based in California.  

I'm familiar with Denimio and OkayamaDenim, which I've used, but both have a narrow selection, and I have yet to try Amazon Japan.  I still can't figure out how to use Rakuten Global Express (derp). 

I'm most bummed about Rakuten Global Market closing because it gave access to quality used / second hand stuff.  Are there any other options for buying second hand without Rakuten Global Market?

Anybody used Superstitch in Paris before for a mail in?  He received my item on 31st May and since then has not responded to any messages.  All I want from him is an estimated finishing time but at the minute looks like I may be lucky getting my jeans back!! 

Update about Superstitch if anyone interested...... still waiting for my jeans back.  Managed to get one phone call with him where he told me they were finished and posted back on 22nd June.  Still not received them and now he answers no messages or phone calls.  Pretty diabolical service for someone who promotes themselves as a professional outfit on Instagram.  Regret sending them now as they were a new pair of Resolute.... 

looks like I’ll just have to suck it up and hope they arrive sometime.

That's unfortunate. I've used his service several times and he was super fast (but I always went in in person).

Anybody have experience with cutting of the cinch on a pair of cinch-back-jeans? Thinking of cutting the cinch of my 90s Canes, 'cause they keep on stretching and I'm tired of tightening the cinch every two days..

I removed the cinch on a pair of Full Counts. I removed the rivets with pliers then unpicked the stitching and finally stitched over the holes left from the rivets. Very simple and quick with no damage other than the two (repaired) holes at the bottom of the waistband on either side of the belt loop. I kept the cinch buckle too!

Good stuff, post a photo of the jeans too. I just remembered that I did the same thing (but earlier) with a pair of LVC 37s I bought really cheap from eBay - basically new one-wash condition, except the cinch strap was cut, so I removed the whole thing - not bad for £22! I've thrown them away now but they were fine post-op!
