Tommy John // Review
Got my hands on some Tommy John gear and decided to do a little write-up about it for those interested in picking up some quality underwear/shirt.
So the long sleeve undershirt is really nice. I usually don’t like wearing long sleeve undershirts because the sleeves tend to ride up throughout the day and it bothers me quite a bit but these are super comfortable; like silk, and the sleeves actually stayed down at my wrist the entire time, even while I was playing basketball. It’s been getting a bit chilly in the evening and these actually did a good job of keeping me warm and dry while I was playing.
I also got the 360 sport boxer briefs and these are absolutely worth every cent. I played about 7 pick-up games tonight and these didn’t ride up my leg at all. They also kept me really cool. Usually when I’m wearing my basketball gear, which is just cotton tees and cotton boxer briefs, everything tends to get wet from the sweat, and on chilly nights like this, inbetween each game I get really cold, but these Tommy Johns kept me dry and relatively warm. The little pocket on the outside was a really nice touch. I always need a place to keep my winnings after I sweep the courts with these suckas.
I usually just opt for regular cotton underwear and anything comfortable in terms of underwear and sportswear, but these are really worth the investment. I highly recommend checking out their stuff.
Thrifted/donated all my spring/summer items this weekend. It feels amazing to just clean out my closet of unnecessary items.
Although the items I parted with weren’t all that bad, I found myself constantly thinking about what to wear. My showers would be extended an extra 10minutes thinking about what to wear. Then I’d spend another 15 minutes trying on different shit, only to end up walking out wearing the same shit i wear all the time.
I kept a few staple pieces like a blue/white/oxfordstrip ocbd, navy/brown khakis, deconstructed blazer, waxed canvas ma-1 and a light navy spring jacket.
For my casual wear, all I have left are Supreme tees, uniqlo/jcrew denim and TOJ outerwear.
I don’t mind wearing the same shit everyday. I’d rather wear the same quality stuff everyday than come out wearing some random ass article of clothing from when/where-ever.
I have so much fall/winter stuff to get rid of too, but can’t really do that til the end of summer, so I’m looking forward to that as well.
Sometimes I like to look through my #wiwt pictures- not because I love myself so much- to see how my ‘style’ or taste has progressed/evolved over time. I think I’ve come to the conclusion that as soon as I got these Levi’s 511s, I started dressing down a lot more.
There are days though however, I really do have the urge to suit up, or atleast clean it up a bit and throw on a sportcoat. And my heart still trembles at the sight of a great blazer and brogues, but… I think for the most part, I do well dressing it down. I look far more comfortable, and I feel far more comfortable. I don’t stick out as much at the kind of places I go to on the regular too. But given the chance to suit up, I am like a teenage girl before prom. Absolutely love the look and feel of my Ludlow sportcoats.
sometimes, i like to test oliver’s level of intelligence and understanding by saying random names to him. i do that to make sure he knows that his name is oliver (lol). i know he understands when his ears perk up and look right at me when i say oliver.
so about 5 minutes ago, while he was dead asleep, i started saying random names aloud; steve, matt, stephanie, james, oscar…. and then i said my ex’s name, and oliver woke up and looked right at me while wagging his tail…
that broke my heart a little bit….
Cheesecake Factory - NJ
Louisiana chicken pasta. Been getting the same dish at Cheesecake Factory for the last 5 years. I regret nothing.
I am never NOT hungry… wtf.
I can’t even imagine what I’d look like if I didn’t go to the gym or play basketball as consistently as I do now….
