No way, nu-uh!

I love the Art of Manliness and their articles, but on very rare occasions, I just have to disagree. For this post, all I can say is "Oh, heck no!"

Lol, I love you, Spencer (in a purely Platonic way of course! ;)). This really cracked me up - and no, I wouldn't dress up like that either!

Katherine Sophia said...

lol... they did look pretty funny... but now I'm curious. What do you wear when you're cold? :)

The Warrior said...

Lizzy: LOL, you'd better not. :-P

Nathan: What the...?

Jonas: Haha, thank you! No need to define the "Platonic way", I totally get ya...but on such a post as this, at least for the other readers, it was perhaps a good idea. :-D It's just...no, no, I simply cannot wear this....

Katherine Sophia: Good question! In detail it'd make a better full-on post someday, but for now let's say you'll likely see me in something like a leather, denim jacket or even a trenchcoat (if I could FIND ONE!!). Always black, nothing else. Oh, about as adventurous as I've ever gotten was this one here, just had to have it:

http://www.martialartdeals.com/sanbon-quot-horseman-quot-track-jacket--black.html

It was zippered, not pullover (pullovers are evil), all black, with pockets, thin enough to be ok in warmer than freezing weather, and no hood (hoods are also evil). And, best of all, a samurai on horseback, riding into battle. I bought mine at a martial arts convention/competition several years back. Woot!

Thanks for the response, guys!

P.S.

You can find a better picture there if you go to "Product" and then "Mens Wear"; it's to the right about a dozen items or so, it's called the Black Horseman Track Jacket.

P.S.S. HEY NO FAIR!

When I bought this I asked if it was supposed to be any particular samurai, and this dude told me no, it was just their drawing/design....

*runs to Wikipedia to look up Kusunoki Masashige*

Ewww!
One word of advice when buying sweaters, hoodies.

Katherine Sophia said...

lol... I had to go look him up too. :) And I have to admit, that does look a lot better than those sweaters... :D

olde.fashioned said...

You mean now I have to unravel that Christmas sweater I've been knitting for you, Spencer? ;P

Lizzy: HA HA HA!!!

Nathan: What I wanna know is, how the heck are you even AWARE of that little clip?? I've never watched Spongebob in my LIFE! (Until now, of course...thanks a heap!)

Jonas: LOL!

KS: That is *IF* he admits to being cold in the first place...;P

Spencer: I still love that sweatshirt on you! And who cares if it's some samurai guy--what did you think it was supposed to be, Francis of Assisi?? Hahaha

Sweaters are okay, just a little old-man-ish, imo. ;)

@ Lauren: Hehe.... I confess I am a Spongebob geek. It's a brilliantly hilarious show. ^_^
