    celadon brings to mind nothing but celadon city. /nerd alert

    favorite loungewear = these white rlpl sweatpants that our good old andyliu sold to about 350 ppl a year or two ago on b&s no joke. but i did just get a pair of black spurr moto-ish sweatpants w/ zips. was gonna post on your sweatpant discussion, but couldn't get a good pic that didn't have taylor lautner in them lol. thinkin bout them + boots + toj moto when doing errands...

    also, i very much recognize that they are not the pinnacle of fashion, nor the clothes towards which most should aspire, but when did w+h replace clarks and j crew as the brand that avant-garde folk ridicule? :/

    this is sad because i like wings+horns :[

    that being said... avant-garde clothes dont really suit short people.

    ^^this is true, i suppose, and makes for poor discussion and great sizing questions.

    Am I selling a shirt? Huh. I think you are referring to the knit? Something like this: [​IMG] Sorry for nip exposure Also, I meant to say that there is something inherently irritating about things that are unobjectionable, but I don't have the energy to elaborate. Too winded from cleaning up dust bunnies !!

    as i suspected :[ i am not tall enough to wear such things.


    also... although w+h is so unobjectionable (mostly) i do like the texture on the henleys, and yes I am aware they get old

    I see, that makes sense. I was surprised that you would consider me well-dressed, since I tend to wear disgusting, ill-matched rags.

    Anyway, I'm running an experiment right now to see if Uniqlo heat-tech garments will dry in <3 hours. Let's pray the answer is yes!

    The longjohns are fine, the tnecks are nice looking but sweat like a mother. It's stupid. Basically makes you sweat to stay warm. I wear them sometimes, but I usually end up infuriated by it. Get something with natural fibers instead.

    speak of the devil...

    if you're looking for under garments that wont be showing, can't go wrong with merino base layers from more technical brands...

    granted i am a rock climber and that is a biased opinion

    The price is not bad for under shirts. IIRC 19.99 for long sleeves.
    Got some J+ pieces instead, there were some cute Azns at the store at the time.
