Bought a pair of those Frogskins way back when, chrome. Immediately backed em and went for Wayfarers - comparison in quality is night and day.

Word, I had a pair of all black Frogskins years ago that didn't hold up very well. They fit my face great though plus I'd been wanting the iridescent lenses for a while now and decided to snag a pair since they were on sale, I don't think they're really worth full retail price. As far as Ray Ban goes I prefer the Clubmaster over Wayfarer. I have a pair of tortoise shell Clubmasters.

Nonnative x Vans. Bought the hi’s Last year but missed out on the los on realease so very happy to find these on YJP

How much did you end up paying for these? Not really feeling the cons collab, but always fancied a pair of these

You’ll probably end up having to pay over retail (as I did ). A few pairs of new/ unworn still come up on YJP but usually above retail.

I do, genuinely appreciate the whole craftsmanship, thousand-times folded Nippon cotton, made on a piece of industrial heritage - spiel. But I can't shake the thought that that there is a lot of money to look like you shop at Jack & Jones.

I think you can tell/feel the difference in reality though, texture and detail is a higher level and I don’t think that always is obvious in a photo. Plus the difference grows when the item has been worn and washed a load. Just my two pence

Oversized and undersized waist packs.

Running one is perfect size for phone and keys.
Big one has a padded pocket at the back big enough for an ipad and multiple pockets in the front.

Annoys me how many small side bags are very nearly ipad sized but not quite big enough.
