Three facts about me:

1) I believe in climate change.
2) I didn't vote for Trump in 2016 and I won't vote for him this time.
3) I am violently opposed to talking about or reading about anything of actual significance when I'm on SF.

This place is supposed to be an escape from all that BS. At least keep it to GC so I can avoid it.

I love this game! I think...#3 is the lie.

I can see only one of us was breast fed.

Wow, all that from lamenting that my outerwear sits unused!

Next up: Tales from my sock drawer. How many is too many?

Apologies to all for my complaints in public. I should've just put smitty on ignore a long time ago and saved everyone the trouble.

I didn’t sense that we were at odds to the levels you are indicating, dude.

I admit I can go on tangents occasionally.

There's never such thing as "too many" socks...
I have two sock drawers, both near overflowing, one for thinner socks, the other is for boot socks. And yeah, what EA said, no such thing as too many socks.

Combining the sock discussion with an earlier discussion on synthetic fabrics, I think socks are one garment where I prefer some nylon. Personal preference of mine, but all-cotton and all-merino socks feel too delicate, even for dress socks. The nylon doesn't deteriorate as long as you wash in cold water and hang dry and it makes the socks feel sturdier and more substantial.

I could not concur more strongly. No synthetics in anything other than socks, and in socks, some synthetic is a must.

Work out clothes are the obvious other exception.

Same here exactly. Socks need some stretch. I was an all-cotton hold out in exercise gear for a while but synthetics really can’t be beat so I shifted over.

I also shifted to Tommy John undergarments that are 90% Modal with 10% synthetic for stretch.

I got yelled at in the Drake’s thread again for complaining that they were asking $2k for a synthetic blend suit.
