TORONTO Meetup

Recommended Posts

i popped in today. probably saw you. the place looks great.

shit you should have said hi, i'm the big guy with glasses in the green shirt. we are still adding fixtures and bits and pieces here and there but it is almost done. i was buried in clothing to receive today so i barely looked up. we should have 3sixteen in a couple weeks and a crap load of other great stuff is coming.

cheapest way to do toronto - nyc (one way)?

(i know it's cheaper by bus, but which company ask the lowest price?)

megabus, neon bus, for like $30 if u book early enough and thurs-mon takeoffs

i wouldn't do it again. 10+ hours on the road and turrible recycled air

but this depends on u

Sometimes the deals are too good to pass up though.

I got $40USD Round Trip one Summer, left on a Saturday evening, empty bus, 'great' sleep.

(Neon Bus)

has anybody taken the train?

greyhound can be brutal. megabus sometimes tips over...

lets not forget about the bus from new york to toronto that took the wrong route and tried to get past a bridge that was too low and killed a couple people.

I just remembered about that story of the decapitation that happened on a greyhound, still gives me the shudders

that was a trip to/from phillie and another eastern U.S city.

took greyhound to nyc last may... and yes sometime the deals are very good, $50 or so, round trip even. Just book far in advance. I didn't find it so bad but I imagine if I had to sit with a stranger it would suck.

Will, aren't you from montreal? Bus ride would be much more bearable from there.

A couple friends returned from nyc last week, they got a rideshare round trip, said it was fun and the driver turned out to be really cool. Cheap trip too.

I LIKE SEEING PEOPLE FROM THE FORUM IN REAL LIFE AND LENDING THEM $20. LOVE YOU, BRO. (You told me not to forget I lent you cash even though it's fucking $20. #ballerstatus)

Lots of W+H came in Thursday;

Sweat shorts, shirting, westpoint twill, anti-fit pants, hoody's, etc.

Tons of Gitman shirting as well. Still some Supreme left (only available at Queen location) and hoping GELLER main line soon. APC re-up, Timex, Silent, EG all on the way.

For March Break, we're also doing a tax-off thing -- most of you guys already get that but let your people know.

^ You're welcome. I hope you got some sort of discount on it. Either way, if any of you guys plan on passing by, give a heads up -- I can always swing taxes or a little more off depending on what you're getting. Unless you're Clopek.

On another note, we got in some sweet EG stuff and Silent by Damir Doma. The Silent stuff is much more reasonably priced than I thought it was. Definitely worth a visit, IMO. More stuff will be on the Queen location and we're doing a no-tax promotion for March Break!

its quite annoying considering the Fillet-O-Fish is my least likely choice among the entire menu. Subliminal advertising FTW.

BK Jalapeno Cheddar burger though...nom x3

They have Quoddy's at Oliver Spencer. They just got in a few new pairs as well as the new Oliver Spencer shoes in blue, green and brown suede... they are made in the same factory as Mark McNairy's with a sweet danite sole... and a lot less expensive than McNairy's.

Not anymore unless you come see me personally. I'm at Richmond 1-7 tomorrow -- the asian guy with glasses.

We're expecting APC tomorrow; jeans and ss '11 gear. Should be out later in the afternoon and will be at Queen the following day.

Edit: Happy Birthday, bropek. <3 Love you.

EDIT: APC SS'11 gear at both stores. Restock on all core denim and new black overdyes.

I've only used Sydney's, he altered a pair of shorts for me a few years ago (waist, took in the ass a bit) and while it took fucking forever he did an incredible job.

studio kim does the repairs for sydney. sydney doesn't do it himself anymore. hasn't for several years. just go straight to studio kim.
