    F*ck Moleskine...

    its all about the Piccadilly sketchbook.

    i bought one and honestly its an amazing sketchbook with nice paper.

    im never wasting money on a moleskine ever again...

    You can buy them at borders, and they are about half the price...

    Meh, Moleskine... tried them once, wasn't too impressed. Way too expensive either way. Nowadays I usually buy 'regular' Seawhite sketchbooks.

    the only reason i like moleskine is because the paper was thin but you could still paint in it with acrylics.

    but you can do it with Piccadilly notebooks.

    I love my Moleskine notebook! Usually, I take it to the park on my fixed-gear bicycle before removing my Urban Outfitters headphones from my flannel backpack to listen to Animal Collective while drinking fair-trade organic coffee and drawing the people that walk by me.

    This isn't supposed to sound hipster (I realize it still does), but I remember when they were slightly more than $10 usd, then suddenly cost $20 usd without warning.

    Jack ass Italians.

    I really don't understand the mentality of being afraid to end up fitting into someone's idea of a stereotype. Like what you like. Labeling people and/or yourself is rather pointless.

    Moleskines are alright. These seem like a good alternative.
    I'd like to find a sketchbook with paper similar to the moleskine in thickness but with more absorbency. Like hot press watercolor paper. Anyone know of something like that? Something that's actually bound. Not like the watercolour sketckbooks with rings...

    Even worse-- they contracted them out to China.

    Didn't pass on that "savings" to the consumer, did they?

    At book stores they sell Moleskins made especially for watercolour (music sheets, acrylic, journal whatever you need). Pretty thick paper, sadly; there's not much of it :/.

    I hope to fucking god you are being sarcastic

    if so you deserve recognition for accurately capturing noveau riche pseudo-bourgeois prol label slave terror

    this whole thread makes me suddenly want to slaughter waves of hollister attired teens and break out a crowbar in a toyota parking lot filled with scions.

    moleskine is obviously the right choice for use in creating Satanic ritual grimoires.

    Really sad posts.
