Whoa! Way to do absolutely no research on the collar/sleeve stains question- before the asker ruins their shirt with bleach or throws it away, a simple stain pretreater (oxyclean, Zout) or the Laundress's Wash & Stain Bar do wonders.
Hey there! Love the blog. So basically, I'm a relatively short (5 and a half feet) guy and I'm also kind of slim in terms of build. I'm trying to pick up my style game but it's so frustrating sometimes because (1) I am a poor incoming college student (-> can't get measurements done, etc) & (2) (and more importantly) I can't ever find anything that fits my body well. Lots of things just emphasize my vertical challenges (haha) and even the smallest sizes/skinny fits aren't flattering. Any advice?
make sure everything fits well even if it requires a bit of effort. and avoid wearing a lot of patterns, stick to basics and make sure your coat game is strong. pants should be slim and tops should never really be much longer than 3 or 4 inches lower than your waist.
I wish I could date you. Partly because I think you're cute and clever. Partly because I want to steal things from your closet. And yes, I am a girl.
maybe i’d like to date you. or maybe not. i’m not normally very good on dates. i tend to talk too much, make direct eye contact for 1 or 2 seconds too long and judge you on your dining etiquette all while talking a little too loud and thanking the service staff abundantly. you’d probably say lots of funny things and i would laugh nervously, and then you would laugh AT me. and then i would ask what was so funny, and you would say “oh, nothing.” and i would make some silly remark about how its never “nothing. nothing doesnt make people laugh” and then you’d stare at me, but i’d be looking at the ground. and then you’d pull out your phone and tweet “save me (eggplant emoji)” and i’d passive-aggressively reply by favoriting your tweet just moments later. the restaurant would get pretty busy, and i would ask you about your family, your friends, your apartment and always last, your occupation. you’d have buckets of great answers but i’d miss all your conversational hints as we spelunked clumsily into a dinner conversational crater. two drinks, three, four, seven. who cares about the food? i am drunk & saying all sorts of inappropriate things, you’re laughing politely and tweet again “thread & salt(ed margaritas)” - i respond with the lime emoji.
Hey man, hope you're well. Quick question, if you'd oblige me, I know you don't work at EA anymore but how did you land a position in that field? Thanks. Take it easy.
Hey man, so sorry this has taken me such awhile to respond to. I have no real excuse, so please accept the apology. I got really luck and after starting my blog a few years ago got noticed by ernest’s then social media manager. i knew i wanted to see what the industry was all about by being immersed in it and i did. it was pretty good, but you have to realize that menswear is an industry, not a lifestyle. love those ernest dudes though, they’ve really been making waves.
