patagonia pullover

hello, is it me you’re looking for?  i’m sure no one has been missing me.  it’s been 6 months since i wrote something.  SIX MONTHS!!!  where the hell have i been?  honestly, i couldn’t tell you or maybe i could and you wouldn’t care.  i can see it in your eyes.  i can see it in your smile (sorry that’s some more lionel for you).  either way i’m alive.  i’d like to start writing on the reg, but you know how that goes.

in august, i went to alaska for two weeks.  it was amazing and if you follow me on instagram (user name: coopersamuels), there are a bunch of pics from the trip.  one thing i (re)discovered in alaska was how bomb patagonia is as a brand.  i bought a nano puff hoody and haven’t taken it off since (that’s a lie).  anyway…they are an amazing brand and there’s a reason i was obsessed with them in high school and college.

one thing that should be on your list this holiday season is an ugly-as-f**k snap-t fleece pullover.  i just bought the one above.  how amazing is it?  i’m not saying you should order the same one, but look at it.  it’s incredible.  you need it.  i need it.  everyone needs it.  you can get your very own here.  don’t be afraid of the u.a.f. snap-t fleece.  there are more ugly options on the website if this one doesn’t suit your fancy.

patagonia bivy vest

a couple of weeks ago, one of my girl friends ditched her tinder date because he was wearing a vest.  i can’t say i blame her.  if i was meeting a girl for the first time, i might have tried a little harder.  maybe it wasn’t the right kind of vest?  no, she hates all vests.  they’re too fratty.

i, for one, love a good vest.  the weather in nashville has been too warm to wear one lately, but that’s not going to stop me.  i’m the real rebel every damn day (wesley willis quote for those so inclined).  this vest season, i’m going with the patagonia bivy down vest.  the video on the website says it’s in its element for “chopping wood, loading the boat or checking the surf.”  that means it’s perfect for me because i do all of those things on the reg.

remember me

i think the patagonia pullover snap fleece is one of the best clothing inventions of all time.  i couldn’t live without it in middle and high school.  i would usually ask for a new one every christmas.  in college i had to buy 3 of them, because various girlfriends would steal them from my house.  i panicked the other day when a friend told me they were no longer making them.  they are.  urban outfitters did a limited edition retro one a couple of years ago, but i missed the boat on those.  i need a new one.  i might be buying myself one this christmas.
