      The only exceptions are things that need to be dry cleaned, and gloves.

        It's more bonkers that you have exceptions because that rules out OCD.

I got bad news for you Andy. That said, I have many terrible graphic t-shirts and love them, I just know they are terrible from a fashion point of view, then again so are Tommy Hilfiger and RL imo. It really doesn't matter too much for me as my boss often has the same t-shirts.
          Agree big time here, I reckon Hilfiger and Ralph Lauren are actually way worse than graphic/slogan tees. Logos seem to be getting bigger again too , must be some correlation with the economy. The extra big horse logo polo Ralph Lauren stuff is gruesome

              I'd imagine I'm in a minority, but it's far from a minority of one

                        Ach, that's bananas. The dreaded 'chemicals'. Let's wash it with chemicals to get rid of the chemicals.

                        Clothing isn't sprayed with formaldehyde to keep insects off it anyway. First off, wrapping in plastic in far cheaper, secondly, insects don't eat polyester.

                        As for it being in contact with other humans, I'm sure you've sat on a public seat with shorts on or rested your arm on a bar.

                              Remember that psv lives in nowhere land where they do things differently. Haven't noticed a logo for a long time. Thought they were dead tbh as was always such a silly idea. Although then again that could be a cultural difference.

                                Would you stop , I’ve seen the same trash downstairs in Brown Thomas(never bought anything in there just go in to reaffirm that money doesn’t buy class and it never disappoints )
                                But tbf superdry and Diesel still going very strong in culchieland so cultural differences are still there
                                Plus don’t you still live in France, of course you haven’t seen a logo

                                  Very good piece by Colm Tobin on the horrible slog of cancer treatment. As well written as you'd expect I thought it was interesting how the effect of the whole trauma seems reflected in his writing

                                    Labels put me off but I was brought to a UniQlo shop recently and they had very good quality clothes at cheap prices.

                                      Perhaps the bottom level stuff makes up a large proportion of what they stock but they're definitely still prominent.

                                      One of nicer brands of casual stuff I own is lululemon. It's more expensive than most sporting brands but substantial difference in quality to Nike/UA/Adidas

                                        UniQlo are brilliant. The whole family here is kitted out in their stuff. Don't remember labels on their stuff, but maybe thats all shipped out to Dublin

                                          Getting involved in a public spat with poker's biggest celebrity? How can that be bad for business? Doke's book is not long released, and i'm sure this attention has done his sales no harm at all, nor will it their viewer numbers for the Phil Helmuth episode of the podcast which is up next. I'm sure they don't mind pissing off a few people in the process.

                                            Yeah they make lower quality clothes specifically for their outlet shops but their stuff isn't really like that.

                                                        The each have multiple lines, some aren't even made by them, just lisensed out. CK is the same. In the case of Ralph Lauren there's Polo, RRL, Purple Label, Denim & Supply, Rugby. Even their premium labels have 70-90 percent off sales. Often its the type of person more than anything else that makes people groan. Be it personality or just that they are seen as an old person thing your father wore.

                                                          I only got around to watching the final of Home of the Year this morning.

                                                          Did others watch it this year? I was disappointed with the eventual winner, I thought one of the other two finalists were more deserving.

                                                            That's the great irony, expensive clothes don't have labels. The labels are for the middling and bottom part of the range for the people that need to wear it.

                                                            It's like people who buy coats/blazers and don't know their meant to take the white label off the sleeve.

                                                            They are doing that, they're putting out different quality products at different price points differentiated by label.

                                                            Maybe their using them more now, but the purple and black almost never had any.

                                                                      Comment


                                                                        Real pain dealing with my management company for my apartment. We lost a front door "do not duplicate" key so have been trying to get it replaced... for two months. First, estate agents were giving out the wrong management company, then had to track down the right one. I have no words for how thick everybody is at the estate agents in general. Not to mention how slimy the owner is.

                                                                        I ring that management company guy, complete waste of space that man, sounds like you are waking him up or he is on drugs no matter what time you call him at, assurances of he will deal with it etc, completely forgets that you've even called him before, completely makes things up every time you talk to him. Goes on for ages until I get my estate agents to message him. Eventually says go to specific lock smiths to get it copied, show my email as proof that I have consent.

                                                                        Go along to locksmith, they say no problem, come back in a few hours. Do so, they say sorry they didn't get an email directly from the guy so they won't do it after all - my email from him isn't good enough they've decided. Obviously took them 4 hours for it to process through their skulls.

                                                                        OK, takes over a week to get the guy to email them directly. Go back into locksmiths today, they say sorry you need a special card or we can't copy it. You couldn't have mentioned that last time you idiotic cunts? Now have to get this card off this better off as a pile of wank human being, ETA 2020. Anybody that's involved with managing property have to be the biggest dregs of society.

                                                                                                    We were in an absolutely fantastic place recently. Never seen anything like it. Les Ormes. It's next level quality camping (providing you go through them and book a treehouse or woodhut - the Eurocamp stuff looks woeful). Like there was people flying in in helicopters to grab a bite to eat for lunch, it's that level of quality. You might be done with Brittany though after last year. The golf course in the park seemed excellent.

Ferry kids across multiple modes of transport does that to the brain. Yep would love a good tapas recommendation. Cheers. Will be spending a day or two there.

Ferry kids across multiple modes of transport does that to the brain. Yep would love a good tapas recommendation. Cheers. Will be spending a day or two there.
