/ Favourite bit of clothing...
What's your favourite and why?
My lucky pants ;-)
Today in the deluge on the bike, it has to be my Rapha rain jacket. Never have I got to work so dry waist upwards. Even if I'd had to pay for it, I'd say it was worth the money, none of that feeling like you might as well have worn a plastic bag. It doesn't look breathable and I didn't expect it to be but oh my it's changed my attitude towards riding in the rain! It's also bright blue with reflective bits which is handy when rain depletes drivers' vision.
Oh!!! I forgot my rainy day snuggle tracksuit bottoms... They are ugly, far too big but OH SO SNUGGLEY!!!
My skin, in fact I like it so much I wear it all the time under my other cloths.
my second hand arcteryx gamma mx hoody just feels so right no matter what.
Patagonia Nano storm, without doubt the best coat i have ever owned, waterproof, warm, never too cold or warm and does not steam up.
I have, before now, bought the same piece of clothes a second time, because the first one was so good!
I almost always do that.
My favourite is probably my lightweight black crew neck Rohan fleece my Dad bought me a couple of decades ago. It's still holding out surprisingly well, and is useful in every season.
I have a fleecy top which was bought for me in (I think) Tesco about twelve years ago. When I go on a walk or trek it's the first thing to get packed. It's done Scotland, the Lakes, Snowdonia, the Pyrenees, The Himalaya and Morocco and shows no signs of wearing out.
Icebreaker merino baselayers - top and long johns. They are magic. Comfortable, soft, stretchy, odourless, temperature-perfect magicky magic.
I do this all the time, if I like something I will buy several of them in the hope I will always have them, at the moment I am sitting in one of my four pairs of Arcteryx spotter pants , one of two Rab Aeon base layers, one of six Pringle lambswool jumpers, ( some the same colour ) even undies and socks and shoes all multiple,
it can be expensive but I don't have to think much about what I wear.
on the down size I can freak out if i ruin one and can't replace it.
I even do the same with kit, I own 2 and a bit sets of RP nuts if I didnt I wouldnt use the ones I do as much.
Nah - it's just the Dennis the Menace style of dressing. Can you imagine what the inside of his wardrobe looks like?
I have a couple of shirts I really like - to the point that I don't actually wear them much for fear of wearing them out!
I have a couple of jumpers I really like, too - a Weird Fish cotton thing that is just perfect for throwing on after surfing or when it gets chilly camping. It's faded by sun and washing, but I just can't bring myself to bin it.
I had a shirt like that. I got it second hand - it had been my sisters, and I just wore and wore it. I don't even really know what I liked so much about it - it was grey and checked with short sleeves, but I wore it for about 20 years and in the end, the fabric went through. I didn't realize for years that she had originally shortened the sleeves from being long sleeves and that one was slightly longer than the other!
Dior pencil skirt.
Complements my nice ass.
How can we tell without photos?
