Turns out I'm still heavily into all manner of kimono and noragi style shit, so I have no choice but to write about this Folk Robe from s.k. manor hill. I know this is the umpteenth Japanese/Japanese-inspired robe/shirt I've posted about on this blog, but I truly do not care. I will continue writing about pieces like this until we all own at least one. That's the future I dream of: one in which we all rock dope robes that cost half a rack (480 USD in this case) and also get together for hipstery versions of tea ceremonies, featuring only the finest oolongs and lapsang souchongs. Just make sure you warm the vessel first. Do not step up in my dojo without warming the motherfucking vessel first, fam. That's how you catch a slap and/or Kali Ma! death squeeze from Temple of Doom. One or both of those things will occur if you forget or otherwise omit the crucial step of warming the vessel before brewing the tea. Same goes for coffee. A startling portion of my time is spent ensuring proper flavor extraction in brewed beverages. It sounds like I'm joking, but I'm violently serious. If it wasn't the middle of the night right now, I would totally make a pour over to celebrate the greatness of the brewing process. If only I had a couple thousand dollars for an espresso machine. Send me money. I promise to splurge wisely -RB
