T: We somehow have 1,000 followers now.  That calls for a fuzzy face self portrait.

A: I’m digging these board shorts from Patagonia.  Just wish the 10” inseam was a 8”-9” inseam.  $65.

Anonymous asked: The Big Duck Day is almost upon us. If you were to ask for any two gifts (T&A related, of course) in honor of this yearly occasion, what would they be?

T: It’s been a little while since I’ve been on my blog grind (insert mandatory hip-hop reference)  Sorry I got to this late Aaron Anonymous. 

True, my birthday was last week.  For my birthday, I got three seasons of The Wire on DVD, a book, and a gift certificate to Land’s End where I buy all of my slacks (pants?) for work.  I also got a pair of blacked-out Sperry Top-Siders.

If I was to pick two things for my birthday, I would pick things that I could wear this summer:

1. Black Mocc Socks:

I’m going to be working all summer and I don’t feel like wearing socks or going sockless and stinking up all my shoes.  Enter the Moccsock. 

2. A suit for the summer wedding I’m attending.

J. Crew Suit

I’m thinking navy, two button, notch lapel, center vent.  I don’t know from where yet………

Anonymous asked: Fellas, I'm in my mid-twenties and I was wondering if you guys had any tips for a nice go-to weekday cologne. I already have a scent I like to wear on the weekends and another for very special occasions but nothing for the Mon-Fri set when I just may be seeing my lady friend...any ideas?

T: I don’t know a ton about fragrances.  Personally, my ladyfriend bought me Polo Blue.  She seems to like it.
