Appropriate Cold Weather Dress

As we head further into winter and slowly inch into colder weather let me break down a few things. To be honest here, it saddens me that I have to spell any of this out, but since I haven’t figured out how to bottle common sense and sell it I’ll break it down.

Dress in layers for starters. Indoors or outdoors you should dress in layers. That way as the temperature fluctuates throughout the day you can remove or add to help regulate body temperature and keep yourself at a comfortably warm temperature and also keep yourself from any unnecessary sweating. One of the quickest ways to become cold is to have moisture of any kind on your skin or soaked into your clothing and sweating will do just that. Here’s a clutch tip from scouting. Always have an extra pair socks at hand.

Speaking of socks, can someone explain to me socks with crocs or sandals? If you are one of those people that thinks this is an ok fashion choice I hope you roll an ankle. (Side note: if you allow your signification other to walk out in public dressed as such it’s time to re-evaluate the relationship.) As for that being your excuse that allows you to wear them in colder weather that makes you an even bigger idiot. Please don’t send me links showing these new “outdoor socks” either. They are garbage and as I stated before. Moisture will be your undoing.

Let me pontificate on one more point. Ladies, if you are going to wear a skirt in cold weather so be it. Your dress choice is your own, but I beg of you some common sense please. Get the thick thermal tights. Helps retain body heat better. Props to my wife on that one. (Honestly hate hearing about how cold someone is and then realizing underdressed they are. I have no sympathy for self inflected problems.) secondly if you opt for the mini/micro skirt there’s no a pair of thermal tights that are going to help you but me thinks that if that was go to choice I doubt tights of any kind were a thought.

I could go on about other proper cold weather attire for hours but since I have better thoughts to get down I’ll stop here. These are just some general thoughts I have and the two most egresses problems I have noticed since the temperatures have started dropping.

Hoodie Weather

Although officially fall had started over a week ago it took mother nature a little bit to catch up with the cool down for the autumn season. However, since it is here I am very grateful I get to pull the hoodies out of the closet and put them back into rotation.

Hoodies are the adult version of a blankies for me. I think every can understand that wanted feeling of security. Aside from that I find them practical. If chosen properly they come equipped with an extra pocket for whatever and as the name implies they have a hood to help protect against light rain, wind, and help maintain body heat.

Clothes Shopping.

I can surmise my thoughts on clothes shopping in a singe word. I loathe it. Not hate, but loathe. It is such a giant pain in the ass. If I could just purchase everything online and have it shipped I would, but alas that is not an option for me.

I am a big dude and am always working on keeping my weight under control. As a result of this I don’t always stay in a normal size range. I float somewhere between husky and just into the big and tall sections. That withstanding I always manage to find clothes that will last me quit some time. My big grip is shopping for button down shirts.

I hate wasting time having to try clothes on, but button down shirts are an even bigger pain in the ass. I don’t understand that need to have the shirt fully buttoned. Two buttons are all that need to be used to hold a shirt together for display. Anything else is a waste of time. Someone get my congress on the blower I’m sure I could get some regulation passed cause everyone knows we have enough on the books already.
