If I said some mornings when I wake up, before coffee but after peeing, I didn’t challenge myself to wear as much of the same color-genre as I possibly could, I’d be lying. Like the time Lindsay said she was ‘sober’ or Oprah said ‘No, I won’t give you that car. And my uterus’. But, enough about altruism.
To the ill-informed it may seem matchy-matchy. But to the well-versed, in both the military-esque attire and hyphens, it becomes a new lease on Islamic green. One of color-blocking and superb stealth in parks and other highly wooded areas. Really though, on the spectrum of tan to forest green, for instance, there are some colors that I wouldn’t shake a stick at. Almost all of which go together in some combination of cuffed shorts or pocket clad jackets.
Add a watch desperately trying to pretend it’s real gold when in actuality it was bought for 10 dollars from a small Portuguese man on the street, and you’ve got yourself an outfit ready for the dusty trail.
Vintage military jacket. American Apparel viscose t. Shorts so old, their origin escapes me. Sperry shoes. Roadside watch.
When the going gets tough, the ankles get spectacle clad socks.
Attention to the masses: I was away but have now returned in, what I like to think, is my full sartorial glory. You might be wondering, ‘Hey Jamie, why were you gone for so long?’ Well friends, it’s because, as I alluded in previous posts, I moved cities and started a new job. Yeehaw, me.
Enough about that, though. Let’s talk about what we’re really here for: used clothing and awkward selfies. Growing up a smaller than normal human has led to me developing an affinity for all things tiny. So, when the weather got hawt and I was sweating near every orifice, I did what any self-respecting man would do: cut my jeans yolo short and bought an obnoxiously thin jacket.
Once you get past the angelic nature of my noggin, a result of what I’m now realizing is less than head positioning, do take notice to the shortness of my jacket.
Rest easy friends, I have returned.
