    I will cop to the toggle-back links as well. I don't own any double-backed links and I am not dexterous enough to put in my silk knots or my silver barbells by myself, so if my wife is not available to help or I am in a hurry, the toggle-backed links are the choice.

    I prefer a ballpoint pen, because as a leftie, I've never been able to grip a fountain pen correctly to make it work.

    And I did own a pair of Crocs (given to me as a contest prize) which were very comfortable, but I also found out that if you leave them outside in the Arizona summer sun, they shrink. So they have now gone to the Junior League Rummage Sale.

    However, the biggest item I wear that I know is "inferior" but that I prefer is Kirkland brand 5-pocket jeans from Costco.

    I've recently started wearing these almost exclusively. They are not cut like a dad jean, but are rather quite similar to the Levi's 501's that I wore in high school and college. They look good with everything from t-shirts to sport coats and at $12.99 per pair, the price can't be beat.

    It's OK - you can speak freely here. This thread is open to you. You know that stinky sweaty shirts are "inferior" but you still prefer them. Noted. How do you feel about underwear? Keep it coming... we're all friends here.

    Sometimes I am lazy enough that I just flip them instead of washing...

    Aye. I just wear them as slippers around the house and I know I'm not the only one. For this purpose, they're going on four years, so have easily outlasted any slippers I've owned. They never, ever, get past the front door however.

    +1 -- I have the ones with the furry insides, they are the perfect slippers [​IMG]


    Character is what you do when no one else is looking.

    So is wanking

    Hmmm... going to post a warning in FS in case you ever sell your trousers [​IMG]

    Heh.

    I was thinking about this today driving in to work.

    Currently wearing a J Crew shirt that was about $15, nice color, fits.

    I am also wearing a sweater I got covering an event in 2007. It was free, it is thick, keeps me insulated and I haven't bothered to check what material it is made of. No joke.

    And shoes from Bata.

    Like I'd wear underwear... I haven't be co-opted by the repressive system of balls oppression.
