sartorial frustration

leave a comment »

I’m suddenly struggling with rationing my money among threads, the alterations they need, and food.  Fit alterations are the straw that’s breaking me.  The way menswear is cut off-the-rack, you wonder if they meant for it to look like shit; but once you know you can’t go back.  I’ve gone full retard—and by full retard I mean fully obsessive-compulsive.  It’s offensive, I know.  A shirt sleeve falls 0.5” below the wrist bone, a jacket sleeve stops at the base of the wrist bone, waistlines of shirts and coats should have no more than three inches of “billow,” even my CK briefs– Just kidding, I wear boxers.  How did this happen?  How did I get this way?  Oh how simple were those days long past—of saggy jeans, cut-off tees, and backwards caps.  Actually, let’s never go back to those days…  but oh how wonderfully simple they were.
