the interstellar jacket

INTERSTELLAR

i saw interstellar last night.  i then stayed up for the remainder of the evening trying to decode it.  i still haven’t figured it out which is not to say that it’s not a good movie.  it is a good movie.  it’s just thought provoking and complicated and exhausting.  if you’re not into that, there’s always dumb and dumber to.  

as far as menswear is concerned, there’s really only one item of clothing worth mentioning: mcconaughey’s carhartt jacket.  it’s been a working man’s staple for as long as i can remember.  i had a buddy from college who wore this exact jacket year round.  he was also a peanut farmer.  my guess is that you are not a peanut farmer and that’s ok.  it shouldn’t deter from purchasing your own interstellar jacket (there’s a reason it’s been around so long).  just make sure to throw some dirt on yours or run over it with your car before taking a test run around your city.  and in case you were wondering, his boots were red wing iron rangers (not that i notice those kinds of things).

going gracefully

last night as i was looking in the mirror, it occurred to me that my hair won’t be here forever.  every haircut that i get from here on out could be my last (not really but in the interest of being dramatic i’ll say that).  my hair has been with me for 30 years now.  it’s shown no signs of going anywhere until a couple of months ago.  i don’t know if i’m super paranoid because i’m 30 or if it’s really receding at the pace i think it is.  either way it’s on my mind.

i’ve had a receding hairline for as long as i can remember.  in grade school, a good friend of mine was kind of enough to tell me about it.  i went home and asked my mom what he meant.  ever since then i’ve been slightly self conscious about my hair but in all honesty it still seems thick enough to sustain a couple of more years.

so yesterday evening as i pulled my hair back and gave my hairline a good look, i started thinking about those celebrities we see on a regular basis that have had receding hairlines and have gone about it the right way.  it’s encouraging for me to look at a heath ledger or a jude law and know that women still think these dudes are good looking.  if their hair can go gracefully, then why can’t mine.
