    I was just talking to Redeemer about these.
    I want some so much, the Crest ones. They don't sell them here because the chemical in them is illegal or whatever.
    The last three fucking times I've been in the US I've forgotten to get them :?

    Hmm, yeah.
    Either just the buttons or just the zip would be fine.
    Just the zip might actually be good, but, eh

    Meh, fairly. These home-kits can never be great, but they work reasonably well short term.
    I'm tempted at least once a month to get the fuck lasered out of mine.

    There's an excellent cosmetic dentist in my city that does a 50% off whitening offer each month, I'm gonna do it when I have a little more free cash.


    RE: the button hoody
    It's been done. And they went too far. Too many buttons

    Yeah, I think it's like £250 regular price.
    But, really, it probably costs them like £25, so they're still making money

    Plus, you know what Fiz says. Once you go white, nothing else feels quite right

    Toasty - you sure?

    So guys, I am redoing my wardrobe and cleaning out the various odds and ends. I am streamlining my stuff to A: Fewer/better brands, B: Less items which means doing less laundry but more often, and C: Keeping it all cost effective. No more expensive shit.

    I've recently redone my jeans. I've gone from like 8 random pairs of jeans, to 3 pairs of Levis 514s in various washes from deep dark blue (which can actually work well in a casual/dressy ensemble), a more casual blue and a more worn/washed out blue. I'm still trying to hunt down a pair in black but it proves actually difficult. But that's it, 4 pairs and no more.

    I'm kind of leaning to do the sort of same thing with teeshirts. Only I am having trouble finding good brands. Some shirts just don't hold up and change after each wash, some cotton just plain sucks to say the least. I've found some Lucky brand teeshirts at an outlett store, and $12 for a fairly decent shirt seems about right for me. They actually hold up a bit nicer than other brands I have found. What do you guys think?

    Like 40% of my wardrobe has been with me since high school.

    I am 27.

    Before I cleaned out my closet 2 years ago, I still had stuff from middle school. Fortunately, in middle school, I liked to wear my clothes very large, so they still fit (and still would if it wasn't for the holes and general fadedness of them).

    One day I'll have money, and get rid of these shirts that are like old friends, and buy fancy new shirts.
    And I'll shed a single tear as I put them in the dumpster

    To the dudes with little money and high desire for nice clothes: If you are reasonably in-shape/a skinny SOB, (pretty form fitting stuff), then I direct you here.

    http://www.hm.com/us/

    There is no online shop for 'Merika, but the storefronts are distributed through these United States.

    Edit: Lucky, are you looking for screen-print design t-shirts or basic colors? There's a vendor on eBay who buys American Apparel in bulk and resells it at the price of normal clothes, and I love me some AA t-shirts. PM me and I shall deliver a link upon you.

    Are you being positive or negative here? Because where you would say "cheap shit" I would say "inexpensive excellence."

    Negative. Their stuff is cheaply made and it looks like it. You can get better quality clothes for cheap when other stores have sales.

    I have to disagree. While I would recommend taking advantage of sales elsewhere while they're going on, I really like what H&M has to offer.

    Then again I am a 20-year-old college kid so I'm not exactly a fashion connoisseur, I just like what I've gotten there and usually receive complements on my purchases. But, again, college, so anything above a t-shirt and jeans makes you stand out in the positive.

    the only thing H&M sells other than t-shirts and jeans is ugly jackets, sweaters, and shoes in funny colors. They make you look less classy than just jeans & a t-shirt

    they are, as we speak, focusing their "Style Guide" for men on how to look more like Kurt fucking Cobain
