I have… seen things you people wouldn't believe… A man wearing a suit jacket... with shorts. I watched Clark's-DBs sell out in an instant near the Atlanta J. Crew... All those… moments… will be lost in time, like ... tears… in... rain.
re: nepethica jarsTheir preservation method seems pretty solid at preserving color, but I am also wondering how much of that is increased contrast and saturation through lighting and photo-editing. I'd love to see the stuff in real life to see if they are actually as vivid as the photos show, but I am doubtful that they are quite that vivid.Honestly, I think their technique is a simple glycerol preservation system where they soak the plants in a solution of 1:2 - 4 ratio...
I did a few hours of reading journals and books last night and even shot off an email to my old field professor about fluid preservation. I think I have a pretty good idea of what is inside of it, of course I can't be sure cause I will probably never handle the thing in person, but either way, the beauty of the jars will probably still quickly fade. I found a guy's blog on Yahoo JP blogs who bought one in January but no updates on it since then, and honestly I can't...

Re: fairisle jacket That's strange because I have no shedding problems on my end. The large looks good on you but I think it looks best open with popped collar, maybe one button buttoned but definitely not all of them. I will try to post pics today
I might take one later on in the season, it's 95 at near 100% humidity right now...The fleece is super soft, but it will pill a bit. Still worth it, I think. There is also no inside chest pocket, which kinda made me sad.
