Is there a less expensive alternative to Acronym?

Acronym costs a lot, but its worth it. I dont think you can really compare it to any other brand on any kind of level, certainly not on a technical level. If you want a nice technical clothes then the burton AK and Idiom lines are good (erolson used to design for burton), and certainly a bit cheaper, but they dont really come anywhere near ACR on a technical level, theres just an insane amount of detail put into ACR stuff.

WHY THE HELL IS MASTERMIND SO DAMN EXPENSIVE?

[Quote] I was mainly talking about younger people, as I doubt too many middle aged business men are walking around decked out head to foot in MMJ, so they wouldnt neccessarily have any family to support but Im not going to argue about the irriational spending, I still think you have to be a bit "irrational" to spend that much on a tshirt. As for rolexs, I dunno, I know nothing about watches, I guess it depends on the model and your salary, but you still have to have a fiar amount of disposable income to drop over 2 grand on a watch.

Your next purchase..

Id like a nice 50mm lens, something like a good nikkor,or a decent second hand medium or large format but theyre too pricey right now. That dakine bag is cool, I was looking into pne a while back, but Ive decided to make some special mods for my Acronym messenger instead.

Photoshop help needed!! Can anybody help me out quick??

I tried, but I cant get the font right and Im too much of a perfectionist to make do with almost right. I tried futura bk, futura book, futura bk bold, futura bk oblique(italic) and none of them were right even with faux bold or faux itallic.

WHY THE HELL IS MASTERMIND SO DAMN EXPENSIVE?

[Quote] I can see where hes coming from, but at the same time I still think that the prices are a bit excessive. Having said that, the Japanese have more disposable income than we do, so comparitively its not that expensive. Its like for most of us, a Rolex is well out of our price range, you have to be making big bucks to want to spend that much on a watch, but in Japan its quite common for middle class "salarymen" to own a rolex or similar. The reason is that, first of all the majority of (big city) people dont actually own a house/appartment and many japanese companies pay half the cost of their employees accomodation expenses, add to that the fact that space is at a premium (people dont have the room to fill up their houses with junk) and that public transport is highly efficient(many people have no need to own a car) and what have you got left to spend your money on? Why mastermind Japan of course. Credit goes to Milspex for explaining all of this.

The Official Visvim Thread

[URL] and am amazed at the number of bags that Bridge has from Visvim. And for those of you who want to know I got my Black Ballistic 20 Pack Backpack checked out by a couple Visvim experts, including UNION in NYC, as well as a few Japanese friends and they have all said that the backpack is authentic. The other reason I think that these are authentic and not fake is because the amount of effort it would take someone to create molds for certain parts of these Visvim backpacks would cost a ridiculous amount of money and it'd almost not be worth it for whomever to try and fake a Visvim backpack because the profit margin would be so low after they invested in the molds and different styles of fabrics needed to craft a Visvim bag. Anyways...let me know what you guys think. Just wanted to share with you the fact that Bridge got these bags in and they're all at a decent price compared to the retail price. Since I was the one that started all the fuss about Bridges visvim bags in the first place Ill just give my opinion on the matter. I really dont know what the deal was with the bag that I got, but the guys at bridge are confident that their stuff is real, theyve had it checked by Union NY and as far as theyre concerned its the real deal and I dont really have a problem beleiving them, theyre sound guys. I had a bad experience, the bag I got wasn't visvim quality, maybe it just slipped through the QC net, who knows, but I sent it back and Bridge gave me a refund, so I have no problems with them and I dont want people thinking that theyre not legit because of a problem with one bag. And for the record, these are not current model bags, which is why they cost less than normal, Firmament sell their old season models for pretty much the same price.

Shoe Heads from Africa??

I think its a difference in culture, if you are wealthy in the poor parts of africa, then you like to make it obvious. So rather than spend money on nikes that nobody will appreciate, they spend it on roberto cavalli and bling.

printer recommendation?

Big shops like that always try and rape you on cables, thats how they try and make up for selling the printers so cheap, same deal with the ink cartridges. Just get the printer, you can buy the cable online for like $5.
