High Grade Shincha from Fukuoka. Shincha is the first picked and processed tea of the year. This one is very smooth and mellow compared to most Shincha, with notes of melon and a little nuttiness.

Re: Ramdom fashion thoughts

- After seeing an Instagram explore page Tik Tok titled "How to dress like travis scott" (Jordans, cargo pants, vintage flannel) I've suddenly realized where that instagram explore page look seems to have come from. - Saw my 12yr old cousin today, he was wearing an astroworld hoodie, cargo...

Re: Book club

My favorite types of novels, aside from the 19th cent. ones, are the ones where the narrator visits a dreary city for somewhat murky reasons and encounters a succession of interlopers who tell the narrator meandering personal histories or some kind of history of the city/country. Reading the Unconso...

Re: Ramdom fashion thoughts

I have sadly not exorcised the instagram demon sitting on my chest but I can tell you both of those seem to be in. All the teens seem to be wearing distressed jeans and zip up hoodies. For some reason I think classic menswear items are coming back but not as a whole look. So like a tennis sweater, o...

Re: Where to live one of these days

A place called Tokyo, japan. Maybe you’ve heard of it? Actually I’ll probably do Kanazawa instead. Sometimes I miss Hong Kong so much I can smell it. It’s got a certain smell when you come out of the airport in the summer. Perfect. The most city-like city I’ve even been. But you can also go off to t...

Re: Ramdom fashion thoughts

Is there a better short than baggies (5")? You can't really carry anything in the font pockets without looking ridiculous but otherwise they are hard to beat. This also serves as your reminder that if you want to get a good color and not some ugly graphic you should buy before May because all t...

Re: The Furniture Game

Secondhand/vintage is really the only option.

Re: ramdom thought thread revival

What's that article, I think in the New Yorker, about the goings on of upper east side teens in the 1990s? Featuring some really great dialog and descriptions of their outfits? [edit] found it: https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/1995/02/20/the-shit-kickers-of-madison-avenue It's a good article to re...
