Fashion Update: How to Get $90 Lucky Brand Jeans at Costco for Just $17, Sort Of – The Miracle of “Urban Star”

Wednesday, October 9th, 2013

All right, work with me here, people. Them stretchy 361 Vintage Straight jeans from Lucky Brand go for $90, right?

Or you can get them at the Lucky Outlet for like $60 or so. The outlet version has a different button but otherwise it’s the real deal.

Or you can get that very same outlet version at Costco #144 for like $36.

Now here’s the kicker. Costco also sells “Urban Star” jeans that are the same exact thing, pretty much, for just $16-something.

Look at the pockets – Lucky in the background, Urban Star in the foreground:

(Or you can get Urban Star from a reseller at Amazon for $25.)

So this means that the markup for Lucky is like 500%?

News to me.

Anyway, I guess what I’m saying is that, just as Soylent Green is people, Urban Star is Lucky Jeans.

Now, what do those reddish, platform-style rocking kicks (do they come with horseshoes?) say to you? To me, they say, “Steal my iPhone and I won’t even try to chase you down.”

Stay safe, MUNI riders!

Racist or Not? San Francisco Pedicab Rickshaw Driver Wears a Conical Asian Hat

Monday, June 3rd, 2013

Thusly:

 As seen on Sansome – click to expand

I don’t know, just last month I saw actual rickshaws in Japan, where the name comes from. But rickshaws are banned in some other parts of the world for being too dehumanizing or demeaning or something.

Above, we have a bicycle rickshaw driver in a Conical Asian Hat.

Oh little boy, do you think that’s racist? Now don’t be afraid to express yourself: 

Fair ‘nough.
