    Not possible new. I think something like COS would be the bottom of the barrel in terms of a suit that does not look cheaper than not wearing one at all, and it's double your budget easily. So bei it Vinted online or brick and mortar second hand stores, used is the only option in your price range.

    The "Things that annoy me" thread

    I think we still got a driver shortage in much of Europe so probably no one in the company is willing to let any driver go as long as they don't intentionally run over schoolkids in the company van while blasting "Ride of the Valkyries" at top volume and shouting "TODDLERS DONT SURF!"

    The question of "where to meet women outside tinder" was brought up the other day, I think by @93Flareside . Apart from the usual "go to a pub" I'd like to report that the amount of showing off and checking out that's happening at the gym is off the scale. Of course, if one's just starting their...

    A lifetime of chain smoking and probably also alcoholism.

    I'd still use such a service just to own a book with #Analgear as the title.

    I have been asked to clarify that I also am guilty as charged of wanting a skinny, tattooed, attractive (goth) woman. This is not (necessarily) about leveling down, but about making an effort.

    Middle-aged single men. There is no birthright to a partner, especially not an above-average attractive one. If one expects their partner to look like they've just fallen out of OnlyFans or Instagram, put in some damn effort yourself. Dress well Work out Get a decent haircut Be willing to make...

    Actually I fell for a dark red Filson bag that retails at around 1200€, but sadly that seems to have been discontinued.

    And they look a lot better than the standard offering. Also, one of the reasons I am still running my old man-purse that's falling apart to the ground is that I currently don't have the budget for this: https://www.hermes.com/fi/en/product/hermes-citynews-messenger-bag-H076617CBAA/ Not joking...

    A 4K, 60hz up-scaled, colorized scene from Fritz Lang's 1927 film, "Metropolis"

    I think this is a nice proof of the power of technology, but is it "real"? It is a fully computer-generated approximation of how this may or may not have looked back then in Babelsberg. Also, it is missing the aura (in a Benjamin sense) of the original.

    One thing is not wanting kids, the other thing is getting one not working out. This topic is overdiscussed I think.

    That's amazing amounts of cycling. I just logged my 300th kilometre this summer on Helsinkis city bikes which, probably for safety reasons, have three low and no high gears. So even counting these kilometres double I am far from real cycling programs like that. All the respect and kudos.

    Random Thoughts [Home Improvement/Decorating Edition]

    Induction is very limited in terms of which pots and pans you can use and also emits a very annoying super high pitched noise. And that's why most people who are passionate about cooking, also in professional kitchen settings, prefer gas. We tried to get gas cooking into our new apartment but it...

    Jealous of your gas cooking plates. Back in Berlin, I (illegally) did my own gas oven install. No leaks because I know what I am doing.

    I wear only leather shoes. Got running shoes for, well, running, and a pair of black Van's for the one occasion where I don't want to wear leather shoes.

    New running track has a lot more elevation changes than the old one so suddenly I am happy to see a 27 in front. Still pushing for the return of 25, though... How hard can it?
