    i really like posts like this. you are a hell of a packer, though i did notice that you seem to have omitted your vintage Chris de Burgh shirt. and your cardboard lumberjack beard.

    You’ve omitted some crucial details: Are those Levi’s 511s? And just how skinny are those ties?

    That Nordstrom shirt looks good.
