And got this beautiful set of Lithops from Conservatory Archives shop in London. They are also known as Living Stones and are found in South Africa. I really like how nicely they are presented here.

Yup. "He's growing brains in a jar," was my first thought. They're creepily cool.

I had been using my old Asics for four years and really should have replaced them a while ago.


Cracking deal on those! Are knits any different to regular trainers when it rains? I'm guessing not, but you never know...

Tbh I didn't like them at first and thought they looked gross. But now I love how cool they are. They hardly need water too as the stone will split open and a new stone/leaf pops out from the slit. Then it feeds of the water from the old leaves/stone which will dry out and peel off.

Nah, I think you can buy weather proof versions but I prefer breathability. Not like I run in the rain if I can help it.

New Era has a upto 70% off sale going on.

Website is very glitchy at the moment, though.

Is that an embroidery or silicone 3D effect letters? It's a thing now.

Could be laser cut felt and glued too come to think of it.

There's another version of that cap, whose description points out that the New Era logo is embroidered, but doesn't say anything of the main logo. New Era use all sorts of materials for logos (metal, even), but they always make a point of stating what it is. The fact they haven't done so with this cap, leads me to think it is, indeed, felt.

Interesting. Been thinking of picking up a cap press, but I've only actually been asked to do them once. I couldn't so my client went and got them somewhere else, the digitisation (stitch design) was terrible :slol:

How have you not been shot yet by a poorly informed firearms unit? I'd be interested to know if the same would apply to a black person carrying the above.
