Self care in 2019 is refusing to buy from stores which use the term "drop"

I won't buy anything from a store that doesn't use the term "legwear"

The four categories of clothing:

Accessories
Tops
Jackets
Legwear

(footwear isn't a type of clothing but obviously is its own category)

I've just gone to Uniqlo

I was going to buy an arcteryx jacket but they have this thing called the "bloctech" parka?

It bangs????

Anyone who shops anywhere but

Uniqlo
Marks and Spenser's
Decathalon
Rapha
One specific set of arcteryx trousers
Champion for sweatshirts I guess
The odd eBay designer brand for sub £50 4x a year
Swerve
Blessed by good friends corporate discounts

Is a mug imo, tricked by business

This forum is now mfa, fashion is cyclical, 48855884843 worn out dwr coatings

"rapha is for men buying bikes to make up for being impotent"

Simply incorrect

Take a jaunt down to your local bike shop and browse the "fashion", you'll notice it is devoid of any form of aesthetically pleasing bike-wear

Casteslli? Nty that logo is bad
Endura? Do I look like I ride the gnar?
Dhb? You mean worse rapha
Sportful? Do I look European??

Now take a jaunt to your local rapha, pop by your local bike person, "hey how's it going?.... Yeah mate still planning that big tour, mapping it out now ahahah, yeah the real issue is the PTO but hopefully when the new year starts I'll book it in first unless the partner wants another 2 weeks in Dorset...you know how it is ahahahah". Then you'll slink upstairs to the cafe and order a pour over, Katie isn't on the bar today and so Steve made it instead, it's juicy but got a bitter after taste, part of you wishes you got it from that place opposite your work instead, but he tried so you leave it on the counter and say "banging mate, see you next week". Finally you're there on your way out, notice a set of cargo bibs hanging on the sparse rails, "oh banging, they'll be perfect for that tour I'm planning", grab those, a set of socks on your way to the till and then Sarah realises it's you "back again John?" "Ahah yeah you know me, cracking out the miles", she smiles but sees through your lie, knowing you're looking for endorphins to stave off anxiety. Bagged up and ready to cycle the 4 miles home on your lightweight race bike you just bought, you'll wave to everyone on your way out and think "glad I didn't go to Evans"

This sounds like a familiar tale, you could swap rapha for pi polloi, aseop, bodega if you happen to be on the bad side of the Atlantic, it's the same customer, the same lifestyle salesmanship, we just have to accept that's who we are.

all i'm saying is just ride a bike like a normal person, 90% of guys i see wearing rapha are the sort that overtake you on the inside when it looks like they might be on for a pb on their commute
