Lesson #101: Another evening with sweaters

Sweaters should be no sweat. But in a world where virtually anyone has access to unskilled garment labor, some crazy shit still gets made (THANKS INTERNET)…

INFEASIBLE: UGLY SWEATERS THAT GO FOR $35
I’ve never been to an ugly sweater party and I don’t associate with anyone who has. I imagine they’re fucking boring as hell because, hey, the premise is to wear something stupid and tasteless while you drink. Okay, maybe you’re roped into attending by your boy/girlfriend – you, so to speak, need take one for the team. But that doesn’t mean you should ever spend $35 on some horrid piece of crap that you’ll wear once. Seriously, how is this store operational? HAS THE WORLD GONE MAD ON ME DURING MY TOILS?! Men, don’t ever go to a specialty store for an ugly sweater – don’t EVER spend $35 especially – let your closest senile family member gift you one or just suck it up and wear something from a Goodwill if you get dragged to one of these lame parties.

Feasible: Form-fitting, everyday sweaters

Like I’ve said before, sweaters are not on this cursed Earth to further a fashion philosophy or agenda: they here to keep you warm when you’re going from one place to another. They’re very different animals from coats, which you might wear to a dinner party and therefore be judged on. Again, you wear a goddamn sweater when the sun goes down, the field freezes over, and Old Man Winter’s decided to challenge you. This A|X is perfect for the transit hop or trek during the cold months, and would never be considered an ugly piece by anyone’s standards.
