My biggest pet peeve in fashion are people who wear recockulously trimmed New Era caps.

Goddamn, dudes. If you like the team, get the onfield 5950. Don't look like a douchebag.

I think we've got a blue/yellow theme here.

Greg Saunier was wearing these shoes at the Deerhoof show I went to.



There is no place to buy them now  :-(

Liz those shoes are pretty rad.  They do not look like a unicorn or maybe a clown threw up on them, so they automatically better than half the shoes mentioned so far.

Yes, those are great shoes! I want nice boots. Also, having feet small enough to fit into kids sizes can be great sometimes. Not that my feet usually are, but I once got a pair of leather Nike Cortez at like half the "real" prize somewhere in Sweden, because the kids size fit perfectly. It was pretty awesome.

Also, anyone have advice for cleaning a white shirt with a design on it? It got some spots on it and I bleach penned them off and now those spots are whiter than the rest of the shirt.

Oxyclean is good for removing stains, specifically ones that are protein-based, like blood, and also wine and mud, but not really for fixing things like this. Spray-N-Wash is good for the rest of the stains, like grass, but again is not good for this kind of thing. And if you have an oil stain oxyclean will be your best bet, but you should pretty much count on your oil-stained clothing to never be the same again.

Anyway, try clorox colour-bleach (or bleach for colours or whatever it is). If that doesn't work and the spots are really obvious, you could try penning the rest of the shirt around the design to make them the same white. I personally don't much like bleach because using it weakens the fibers of your fabric, but it is really good as a last-ditch solution for when you bleed on or get mud on white things and can't get it out any other way and I have soaked stained white things (socks, underwear, etc) in bleach for lack of any other ideas, and it always works. So basically I guess you could use latex or rubber gloves and a plastic tub of bleach solution and soak the shirt in it while holding the picture part out of the water, if you're desperate. The plus side is that then you can throw the shirt in the wash, and dilute the bleach solution and then mop your kitchen floor with it. No waste!

Hmm, I'll try washing it again without the bleach on it and see if that makes any difference. I don't want to stand over a tub of bleach and inhale the fumes forever.

Man, speaking of hidden buttons, does anyone know the reason why so much women's clothing has extra hidden buttons like this?  All I can think of is that perhaps having fabric over the button in the center keeps tummies looking flatter--but at the same time, then you've got more material in that area than necessary, which you'd think would make people look fatter.

Generally I think it is to make the pants look neater because the buttons don't show that way. Also it holds the fabric in a bit so that it doesn't bulge.

Or something.

Jacket,

OK so I am probably going to start riding my bike to work if all goes to plan but that means I will require a backpack. Any suggestions for backpacks that will not make me look like a tremendous geek are entirely welcome.

I prefer messenger bags but they are hard to wear when you are on a bike. Although I believe I may have seen a fellow who was riding a bike and had some swank kind of messenger bag with extra straps so it sat high on the back, like a back pack. Am I making this up?

The jacket has buttons that are secret. That makes it cool.

Dovey couldn't you just pull the strap pretty tight on your messenger bag so it goes higher up and is less prone to moving?

Sam does wear some pretty cool things.

Was it washable or something? I've never had a jacket shrink on me. I just mostly outgrow them.

Find a canvas messenger bag, they last much longer. And I've found that if you tighten the strap it causes no difficulties while biking.

Personally, I love the jacket because it has a simplistic design but with a unique oddity. Just my style.
