    @Monitor @zebedee et al - that’s why having limits and sticking to them is the best thing ever. I get to enjoy what I collect with absolutely no guilt. And if I don’t like something, then I’ve “wasted” my designated fun money but my finances, mental health etc all remain fine.

    On topic: I’m in the process of putting thoughts into words for a review but this fantastic Hercules half belt came in this week.

    I reckon a few things that you really love and the rest of your clothing 'working/functional/socialising' is fine - you have to have things that you enjoy, after all. Money wasted isn't catastrophic if it teaches you to conserve it (or to spend it on things you really enjoy), and there's no help in being your own worst critic for too long a time- consumption (and conspicuous wastage) is what most people are taught should make them happy. For some people it does and for others it highlights a lack of some kind. I stopped buying as much stuff when I started reading again (when I say reading, I mean I'd pick three novels and that'd be the objective for the next week or ten days' evening reading- the best part was that after a while doing that, I'd lost the research/buy habit and I could pick up and put down a book like most normal people).

    There’s just something about original vintage. When the fit is right....it just destroys everything else. Genuine character can’t be feigned. It’s a longer game with more failure than success but I get it. I’m in the thick of it myself. Congrats man. That’s a beauty!

    Original vintage is so awesome when you find the right one and it fits!
    For me, I know that the original vintage jacket I crave didn’t fit (I’ve only ever seen 1 in my 9 years of hunting). So, I wait for Chappy.

    ...and it is double fun if you can score your vintage jacket for 10% of the cost of a top-tier repro!

    Sunburst again. In the 90s here, so only worn early in morning and during the evening.

    hmm I'm always find it relatively easy to forgive small things once I have it in hand, and once I make it mine all the negatives are forgotten/ forgiven/ or I tried to fix it myself until it fails me one day then I remember all the negatives again, and hate it. this is about things not people :D

    let say I bought new helmet, when at home I find a little scratch or something not important I didn't look closely at the shop I can quickly forgive it, once I wear it several time and happy with, I totally forget that minor imperfection, happy with the brand follow it on IG, until lets say the foam behind the mouthguard suddenly rotting/ disintegrating into small chunks, then I hate the brand. and make me want to buy better helmet.
    as long as that doesn't happen, I'm happy with it knowing it is not the most beautiful or the best around, same with shoes, mobilephone, etc.

    btw the helmet was KYT, I never put it in the sun, rarely worn since I prefer my openface, always kept clean, suddenly when I picked it and wear it a chunk came loose inside my chin, and then more chunks dropping, took off the helmet, I tried to feel which part is it, then I can scoop with my bare fingers the rubber mouth piece foam, get under my nails and shit... totally hate the brand now.

    Money comes, money goes. Jackets come, jackets go. I've been on @ton312 's similar trip, looking for good deals on vintage pieces. Although, Dave Sheeley should be building me something nice and new soon. My past two jacket purchases were Sub $50.

    It's like being happy with Spanish table wine instead of Chateau Neuff. That Rich Sheer police jacket is so cool though.

    Wearing the Legendary horsehide again with a Uniqlo washed jersey chore coat mid layer. This Legendary jacket has kind of taken over my rotation.[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
