Nope. Not for a good two decades now.
It is these days thanks to successful advertising by American (?) depilatory wax companies, but it’s still a social expectation of lesser force.
My wife doesn’t do it (anymore) because I don’t really like it that much anyway and obviously no one enjoys doing it…
We don’t make ourselves look nice just for other people, you know! We do it for ourselves.
If it were just for myself I’d shave every two weeks or so, when it starts to get a bit itchy. Shaving every couple of days is definitely for projecting a certain image.
There are things I do for myself that have the side effect of making me look nicer (e.g., strength is also muscle tone).
The clothes I wear to work fall somewhere in the middle. Obviously I can’t wear truly comfortable clothes, but nicer clothing is actually more comfortable as well. At home I just wear some sweatpants or something.
Electioneering / robocalls
It’s an election day here and I’m getting bombarded with robo calls.
Give Ted Cruz some credit. He´s doing his best to sound human!
Trainers that come with inexplicably long laces.
Actually there is a reason for long laces. Depending on the shoes you have to tie them in a special way.
Is that ancient roman style?
Do enlighten me
Which trainers have you bought? Have you used every (maybe hidden) hole?
Generaly speaking: There are several methods to tie a lace and some shoe manufacturers recommend (or support) one of them them (so that the lace fits to the style of the shoe):
For some of these methods you need a longer lace.
They’re Adidas ones from the ‘Campus’ range.
I bought them prelaced in the ‘display’ style (I think - I’m not wearing them right now). There’s just a lot of excess, even with a double knot. Maybe I should try one of those other styles.
They’re pale pink to match the shoe, otherwise I’d buy new ones.
This takes me back to being a teenager when it was fashionable to stuff our laces inside our shoes. I could do that but there would be no room for my feet
@milanfahrnholz haha, I didn’t spot that one.
I haven’t found information about a special/different official tie method. So I guess you have to cut the laces or to try one of the techniques I posted above.
Yeah same range I think.
Dammit I want those red ones now.
Then just buy them - one can’t have enough shoes.
Why would one need so many shoes?
