Hong Kong humidity > Nigerian dry heat
get used to riding my jock because it'll be jeans and t-shirts for 9 more months

I am pretty sure that Tirailleur was just questioning why you felt you knew enough about the weather in the different parts of Nigeria to make a statement like "HK humidity > Nigerian dry heat". For the record, I come from the "south-south" region of the country and travel there frequently. I cannot compare it to Hong-Kong as I haven't been there before, but it is pretty humid there most of the year. Same thing with Lagos where I live. The only parts of the country that have dry heat are up north. I wear a lot of light cotton, linen/linen blends, silk whenever I am going to be outside for any significant amount of time and I find that I have no problems in a long sleeve shirt and pants. Of course, if you don't like loose, billowing clothing then your choices are definitely limited. I do wear tanks, but never to go out (more of a cultural thing than anything).

I was going to do a long reply to this listing cultural, historical, financial, and other reasons (exploring new things?) as reasons one would come to Nigeria, but I realized that it would be a waste of time as your statement probably (I hope) was not meant to be taken at face value.
huge step back tagut. burn the sneakers, hem the jeans, buzz your hair, the tee...
and i thought you were going to take people's advice
1) I'm not crazy about the PF Flyers, but they serve a necessary function in my wardrobe. There just aren't too many low-profile sneakers out there that can fit EE-width feet. I actually got a compliment on these last night… from a girl!
2) I'll hem the jeans after I wash them.
3) I'm going in for my tri-annual haircut soon, and I'll get the same mid-length cut I get every time. No, a buzzcut wouldn't work with my skinny little rat face.
4) The tee is AwEsOmE, thankyewverymuch.
5) I'll try to take people's advice within reason, but you also can't expect me to turn over my entire wardrobe in a week.
I know this is gonna shock you guys, but I actually like my outfits, especially considering what I paid for them, which I imagine is miniscule by SF standards (at least the standards of the new s00per hai-fashunz SW&D 2.0) Of course there are things that could be improved about them, but I really haven't posted anything in the last year or so that I didn't believe in.
Thought of you the other day when I found what seems like a decent scoop neck. Check out BLK DNM. They have nice ones that are real lightweight for $55 (I know, not as cheap as AA, but it's an option). You can find them at a bunch of places online too like ssense, revolve, P&B, etc.
Topman always has u-necks out the wazoo. I also got my J. Lindeberg u-neck off of Zappo's a while back, but it was expensive ($70) and the fit was too boxy for my tastes.
