Stag is a pretty good place to shop. Vastly superior to By George in my opinion.

Stag sucks.

Though my opinion is, admittedly, moslty based on one egregious incident.

And the fact that it is J Crew as fuck... but what isn't these days?

Definitely not "vastly superior" to By George.

Stag is good if you like RRL, Plaid and workwear-ish stuff (^^Jcrew). By George has much better brands going for it - Margiela, Guidi, Common Projects... it's the only place I buy clothes locally.

Relocating to Austin this weekend. Any recs on areas where a 1 bedroom can be had for <$900? Will more than likely be working around Congress and 6th.

Been here for a week now, seeing that the city isn't very walkable and that living downtown is undoable. Hear the east side south of Manor is the place to be, if anyone knows of a nice place with or without roommates or people looking for another to join a lease it'd be greatly appreciated. Posted in east riverside with some friends until July or August.

the area near the deadend of east 6th looks pretty cool but i'm sure the rent is insanely high still

 

there's a couple of sufers but i think one dude works for stag or service, and the others are like in college, i think. 

 

craigslist is probably your best for finding roommates

Been surfing craigslist but I think I'll be more limited by distance in my not wanting to drive my dying car and not wanting to bike due to being an insanely sweaty dude (if i get started sweating) than by price.

There's a fuckin ballin new rock climbing gym opening on airport/springdale that I must be close to as well, so looks like the east side it is. No hope for walking, hopefully there will be bus transit available to get me downtown for work.

Bus is pretty convenient. I've taken it a bunch of times.
