fatigues have waist cinches this season
When you were asking for people's input in this thread, you weren't sure. You didn't know. Some people posting in this thread aren't sure of their own judgement. It's asking for help. You – yourself – have come to a point where you no longer needed help, and that's fantastic.But to act above the influence of seeking others' opinions is – without willfully misinterpreting anything – a common trope of Western masculinity that I don't think helps anyone.

eg / eg / gat I'm going to win a challenge some day and the one I create is going to be "no layers / no jackets / 1 blouse / 1 trew / 1 shoe" just so you all know what it's like to have to dress in Phoenix's weather.
