In spite of the fact that I HATE Syracuse University...

I found myself in a Syms the other day; I wanted to see if they had any cool new hoodies. They didn't, but I ended up making a most triumphant purchase anyway.

Syms is a sorta warehouse store that carries high end clothing at discount prices, e.g., DKNY jeans for US$30.00, Champion hoodies for $15.00, Ralph Lauren Purple Label tuxedos for $500.00.

Now, before anyone starts thinking I'm a shallow metrosexual for buying designer stuff, let me explain; it's about quality. Quality is important to me, not the name. I don't always take care of my clothes that well, so it needs to be able to stand up. From my undershirts to my suits to my shoes, it's about quality.

RL makes some really good stuff - I have a Polo turtle neck that's just starting to get broken in after 15 years. On the other hand, there are designers who make crap. "Tommy" is one designer who comes to mind.

Anyway, I was on my way out of the store when I saw them. You couldn't not see them; in day-glow orange, a pair of Ralph Lauren cargo pants. They weren't some novelty pants, they were sturdy, well made, and burn-your-retinas-out orange. It was clear that Mr. Lauren sent them to this store especially for me, so I simply had to have them.

As I walked to the register (Syms is a huge store) I stopped by the dress shirts, and there it was... the shirt time forgot. It was as if this shirt had been hidden away under some spare mannequin parts in the back room for 30 years. A Kenneth Cole ruffled tuxedo shirt, in orange!

It's not that I like orange so much, it's just that orange clothes say nothing so much as, "Fuck you!" James Dean would have worn the shirt in 1955, Marc Bolan (T. Rex) would have worn the shirt & trousers in 1972; John Taylor (Duran Duran) would have worn them in 1983...

And I'm just the kind of asshole to wear them today..

Today's voocabulary word - Tribadism

A sex act in which two women rub their yoni together; also known as a "scissors fight."

frogger1995 was too tight for tillerbabe's monstrous strap on, so they decided to trib each other.

So if I see an asshole all dressed in orange, I'll know who it is

Orange is one of my least favorite colors ... but I applaud you for doing something different. I don't like the way most American men (ok so I'm assuming its just American men) dress - designer or no designer.

I was gonna try to be witty, but the visual you threw out is oddly disturbing & distracting me at the same time.. Add some shiny sh*t, and I'll be completely useless You won't be one to get lost in the crowd that way though..Sounds like it worked out for ya though

i want to see!! i want to see!! i'm not into orange (it's my 2nd most hated color. unless it's in a package of m&m's... in which case it's third). but i really have to see this

and when i come to NY... if you decide to wear your orange, let me know... i'll make sure and bring a lime green outfit. (Not that i have many... just 2 tshirts. "play clothes". though i DID try a dress-suit on once... encouraged by a friend... i thought she was nuts. shockingly enough it looked GREAT).

I just call it, "Bumpin' Beavers".

Wear that outfit to the bank. In case of a hold-up resulting in a hostage situation; you'll be the first hostage released.
Might save your life. Good call.

Thassss sum funne sheit I don't care who sayz difrnt. Maybe I am insane but I do like the color orange. Even though they sucked this year UT Vols (orange) Cincy Bengals (orange) SuperBowl next year! florida oranges (orange) and lets we forget Hooters girls .... so there I think you made a wise choice not only for fashion but the fact that you will stand out in the crowd like you obviously should!

So if you get arrested, instead of the prison jumpsuit, you're going to tell them, "no thanks, I have the perfect designer prison outfit in my closet!"?

I wish I had seen this before the weekend. I saw the perfect bright orange purse to go with this ensemble.

According to colorology, orange is all about vibrance. It denotes energy, warmth, and the sun.It is known for stimulating the emotions and even the appetite...mine already is!

[blog emmie234] - I'll see what I can do.

hourglasses - nice new boobs, hon. Are you saying you like the way European men dress?!? "Oh Heydrich, would you help me find a tie for this PLUM COLORED SHIRT?"

WildChild5884 - look at the monkey, look at the silly monkey!

demonicsexkitten - oh, I'm not wearing them in the City... I get hit on by boys enough as it is, thank you.

spinmedown - nah, I'd be the last to be released in a hostage situation regardless. Things just work out for me that way.

pinkplaytoyz - well, there haven't been any episodes lately.

dz2502 - no, no. I just eat veggie goulash with them on Thursdays.

[blog Dysgyzed] - I dunno... you'd be distracting to me!

[blog EveLWoman] - yeah, they really do sometimes.

tillerbabe - thank you! I don't know if you and frogger1995 would be a good couple then. Is MissAnnThrope the only Domme around here?

[blog 4yousexyeyes] - thanks!

[blog snatchmatch71] - yeah... the one bone the universe throws me... a pair of orange pants.

craptoast - yes, thank you; no, but I think it will be at Pearl St.; no, what the fuck are you talking about? Football season's over and I don't really care about football anyway, much less the Packers.

PrincessKarma - thank you... I have lots of faults, and lots of insecurities, but you are right in that assertion. So confident, in fact, that I once allowed a GF to do this thing she'd been wanting to do that involved... well, not so confident to talk about it publicly, I guess.

MissAnnThrope - I already have a manpurse, but thank you.

[blog Vevixin] - "colorology"? Wait a minute... did you just use the word colorology as if it was a real word or something?

My 2 major crushes of my life James Dean(skipped school to watch Rebel Without a Cause)and John Taylor(mom didnt appreciate the thousands of posters that covered my walls and ceilings as a kid). Neither had to try hard to look so hot.
