    This is a weird one for me.... my barber typically charges $50 for a cut.
    But he's been heavily discounting my cut to $28, so I always tip him $12 to get him to $40.

    I know I don't have to, but it makes for a nice barber who's willing to cut early in the AM's or super late in the evenings.

    Was thinking the same thing. $15/cut = $30/hr at best (2 cuts an hour)... not getting that? Then maybe your cuts aren’t good enough.

    Quick question, im looking to customize a pair of converse I got as a gift. Right now all I want to do is add a zipper to it and im too afraid to do it on my own. Does anyone know a place (even a decent shoe repair) that will do this for me, do a good job, and wont charge me more then $50-$60?

    yeah, I made a list of shoes I can buy this year, that way, I won't be swayed by hype drops throughout the year.
    I only listed 3 sneakers for the year and 1 dress shoe. Yeah, let that sink in for a bit...

    I tip $5 usually, last Christmas when I had my cut on the 22nd I tipped $10.

    I don't know that I can agree with this statement. North America is a weird place. Why go into an industry that doesn't pay well
    and not be satisfied with the pay? I'm just thinking about the economic implication of this statement. I never tip my Uber driver but
    I expect them to consistently keep me alive and drop me off my destination.

    Coming from an actual barber, that's a heavy statement.

    I tip $5 to my barber, but my cut only costs $15. If my cut costs me $25+ or whatever else you guys are paying, I probably wouldn't tip either. Find yourself a cheaper place to get a haircut. That's too pricey.

    Just tip whatever you feel like tipping. There's no right or wrong here, more of a guilt trip on customers but to the servers perspective, it's part of their wage and service grading so it's normal for them to be defensive about it.

    Norm was always 10% for acceptable service, if server/barber did anything beyond the norm then 15% or 20%. Head is bleeding? 0%. You can break the norm by paying 2%/6%/12%/16%...whatever. It's one of the worst things to quantify into as a grading system really.

    If you don't feel like tipping, don't tip. You're only probably at that place one time til you friend comes back anyways. That barber won't/can't chase you down lol If you'll be a frequent returning customer, that's a difference story.

    also, to put things into perspective, in Japan the minimum wage is not high and the cost of living is pricey specifically Tokyo.
    Tipping is not allowed yet their service, both food and otherwise, was one of the best experience I've had.

    Most of europe don't require tipping as well but I'm pretty sure they don't "lessen" the service they provide. In fact, restaurant
    service here in Toronto is pretty SH*T compared to other places in the world and the audacity of some places to impose mandatory
    18% tips for groups of 6 or more is INSANE. If you ever been to Japan, you know how impeccable service is.

    Any local sightings of the react element 87s in volt pink Sz 11? Should have jumped on this colourway when it dropped. Let me know.

    Also any react elements (55 or 87) show up at outlet?

    They are opening a shop in Yorkville, so it will be a great way to avoid the taxes and duties for future releases. Hoodie comes out to around $430 after taxes and duties which is more than I would like to pay anyways.

    Stone Island, not Supreme. I believe it is opening across from Off-White.
