nice fit, like the sweater color and the beanie!

I like the sweater too kix. More importantly however, can I just say that I hate the word "beanie"? Reminds me of those nerdy hats with the propellers on top. Call it a toque (the preferred term), knit cap, wool cap, or anything else... just not a beanie you hosers!

Thanks, eh.

Dictionary.com says: Toque: n. 1. A woman's small, brimless, close-fitting hat. 2. A plumed velvet cap with a full crown and small rolled brim, worn in 16th-century France. So you Canadians are either wearing women's hats, or velvet. Ahem. Everyone who's surprised, raise your hand....

Listen bub, I already got shit going on with whodini right now, and I don't wanna start shit with you as well...

Toque, tuque, touque... all common spellings. The Canadian Oxford has toque as the main spelling, with tuque as an alternative (ie. the Frenchie way). Beanie just sounds like your asking for your ass to get kicked. Finally, saying toque just makes it seem like you're down with the whole Canadian thing... which I hear is very trendy amongst American youths these days. Or at least that's what our Ministry of Truth tells us.

As a peace offering, let me say that if it seems fitting that Canadian men are actually wearing women's hats, it also seems fitting that American men are actually wearing children's hats. Today (click for no sunglasses, for once):

A quick picture I snapped at a friend's place (trying out my new tripod, as it was sunny outside today in Orange County) Zara RRL AE

Drizzt, the outside shot is SO much better. You look more in proportion (not sure what's going on with the interior shots but sometimes you look disformed) and the lighting is obviously much better.

I think it might have to do with the angle at which the picture was taken. I attached the tripod to the side of a railing so the picture was taken at about the height to capture the image from head to toe. In the indoor shots, I set the camera on a counter and it aims slightly downwards in order to show my whole body. I think that causes some distortion, but I'm not totally sure. Anyways, now that I have a tripod, I'll try to take outdoor shots at various places. In any case, I think the picture shows how cool the color of the RRL denim is.
