    Couple of jackets, yes, but he's done a few summer pieces for me fully lined, and he uses the right linings you can't tell the difference.

    I am having him line the front of mine past the knee. Sounds odd, but my kneecaps sweat like a motherfucker and without lining it soaks right though the trousers. No joke.

    This is yet anotther set of examples that refute the conjecture that we cromagnons dispatched all of you at the beginning of the current interglacial.

    Some of you escaped, and can be seen here and also in most Trader Joes.

    One step ahead of you. The silk ones made me sweat too much, but the plus side was I was able to wring out the oils to use in my penne puttanesca.

    When my people refer to a "sweaty heiney," we are talking about a bottle of beer during the hazy days of summer.

    New Yorkers who buy Pabst Blue Ribbon can save a lot of time by popping the cans open and pouring them out directly in their choice of doorway alcove, alley, sidewalk, or parked convertible with top down.

    Probably saves a good fifteen minutes.
