    Does anyone know where I can get a nylon/goretex/other tech material jacket for spring in an obnoxiously bright color for under $200? Considering this one (http://www.oipolloi.com/Store/OiPoll...+yellow.html#), but other ideas are greatly appreciated. I would get a Visvim nomad or something but it's way out of my price range.

    I'm totally ignoring your budgetary considerations and suggest that Moncler poncho.

    I picked up one of these in red

    It's ok, (it comes with a silly little hat) but I'm still undecided on it. The price was just right and I'm addicted to little jackets so I had to give it a shot.

    @ Synthese: Yeah, drop crotch short + tank or viscose tee and boots is gonna be part of my rotation too. Would love a long sleeveless hoodie like what I saw from Devoa to throw in but no budget. If I get really drunk on a really hot night maybe I'll cut the sleeves of my Drkshdw. RE: biceps. Nothing to brag about yet, but compared to the fey dopehead aesthetic that's popular here I look like Arnold.
    I'd love to see you in the gym, hopefully you're not one of those new year's res dus that does everything wrong and drops off the map after 3 months.

    I wish more web shops includes basic measurements on its pieces. I know this isn't feasible with the high-volume shops, but surely it can get done with shops that have maybe a couple dozen new additions to the site on a monthly basis.

    Thanks for guaranteeing I won't be satisfied with whatever I end up buying. [​IMG]

    At work today, some old guy told me I dress very well..... while we were both at the urinals. I'm sure he probably just meant well, but there's something just fundamentally awkward about someone trying to start a conversation at the very moment of discharging bodily waste.

    Thinking about starting the Starting Strength thing once this school year is finished. What's your experience with it been like so far?

    I have no idea what that is and I don't feel like googling but I did 60 pullups to warm up before my workout tonight.

    It's a fine line to tow. You need to have relatively muscular arms for tanks to really look good, but arms that are too muscular might convey this meathead Jersey Shore vibe.

    If people judge it's because it isn't hot enough out. Most people here just go shirtless.

    That, too. We probably had a handful of days two summers ago that would warrant tank tops on dudes. Quite a few more last summer.

    But yeah, it's gotta be Do the Right Thing weather out to really justify tanks.

    I really hate the phrase "lovingly worn" in sale threads.
