The Great Wave hoodie fits really well :mrgreen: So depending on the design, I now have S, M, and L Uniqlo hoodies which all fit really well :lol: :fp:

I hope Vietnam garment's industry has better worker practices than Leicester's.

Yes it is, it reduces ink colour count and is the only way to achieve gradients in screen printing, whether it's small or very large (this is due to numbe or ratio of inks together with mesh size) it's always present in fades, but it's very much become a stylised effect over the years so is often worked into the design deliberately as part of a traditional "print look".

It also depends on the screen and the exposed screen emulsion holding up, how much different inks can get pushed through different meshes, there's hundreds of different factors that go into a myriad of setups.

:dread: I've yet to see one implementation of it that I thought looked nice. It always puts me off a design... looks amateurish.

Vitamin D is fine - although I don’t bother taking it in summer.

Not so sure about K2 as generally most people are not deficient. You’re probably better off taking a cheap multivitamin which will probably have some in it, be cheaper and cover more bases.

Apple Cider Vinegar is full on quackery. The human body is extremely efficient at maintaining it’s pH in a very narrow range and a piddly bit of vinegar isn’t going to do anything about that. Stomach acid is more acidic than vinegar so the idea that vinegar is going to help with digestion also doesn’t make any sense.

Any “health experts” trying to sell you on the idea of it are either lying or stupid.

Ta Bizz. Appreciate your thoughts on the matter. Found a multivitamin I like the look of, but will save it for when I'm out of what I'm using now.

I like that white tee with the red stripe on the pocket, but of course it's got a massive print on the back.

Ta for the wee lesson in your original message, appreciate it.

Looks like the people responsible for it were thinking about changing it: Japan is worried that its emoji will confuse Westerners during the 2020 Olympics
