    Solid points. Id still go classic navy over black. Just as, if not more, versatile, and a prettier color imo.

    Derp. Im off to find an awesome fair isle. Who makes the best ones?

    I can't imagine wearing a Fair Isle sweater. I would feel like I was doing #menswear cosplay.

    Awesome, and actually less expensive than I expected.


    Well, thankfully I dont have that problem. If I really like something enough, I feel pretty natural when I wear it. Its rare that I feel like I am playing dress up.

    With regards to the Fairisle sweater, the après Ski look is apparently in now so you've got that going for you. With some Chinos and mountaineer boots could be a really good look. Personally après ski for me is a pair of sweat pants and a miller high life if I got the value I was looking for from my ski pass.

    I have never once hung out with a person in a ski resort in après ski wears (I'd imagine they would be insufferable) but I would consider it as an `off piste` look...ughhh..

    I find myself in Colorado Rocky Mountains almost every year. But its always in the summer. All the ski lifts I take are for scenery and Alpine Slides.

    You could still get away with it and say "why yes I go to Colorado all the time"

    Yo! If I call that Washington shirt place in YiTaeWon, Seoul, that they will send me shirts? I still have the tag/receipt/order form that came with the shirts.

    I hope so. Let me know if they will--I might order a few at some point.

    Don't know, don't care. I wear it.

    So my wife was studying at a cafe a block or two away from my office.
    She texted me come quick because some schmuck was hitting on her. I told her she's full of herself but still went anyways.
    I was already ticked off from work so I was ready to unleash on the m.effer who was hitting on my wife.
    I asked him, can I help you? And just stared down at the dude. He packed up his stuff and left.
    I don't think I look scary or even someone who can fight. But he ran like a little girl.

    Then my wife said that she had to use the restroom. Immediately, she came back and said lets leave right now.
    I asked her what happened. She walked in on an elderly man taking a dump. But I wondered why he was the one that apologized when she opened the bathroom door.

    What a day.
