I was just at my uploads page on Youtube, where these videos blogs actually live, and I noticed thereon what I had previously noticed in real life. Sometimes it appears as if I wear the same shirt several days in a row. Yeah, I’m a guy, but I’m not that much of a guy. I own more than seven shirts, and I wash at least every seventh day, so you need not think that I am just selecting my least dirty shirt every day.
I am, however, enough of a guy that I like blue, and especially that I like blue denim. When I came across a spectacular sale on denim short-sleeved shirts with button-down collars, I was in heaven. All of my shirt needs could be met for a mere $6.50 per shirt! So I purchased three. I try very hard to line up those shirts that are in season and therefore eligible for wearing in the closet in the order I should wear them at the end of wash day.
In looking at the vlog thumbnails on Youtube, I realized that I am still sometimes grabbing shirts out of order. And when I do, it is almost invariably the blue denim shirts that I grab. When I wash in the middle of the week, I have noticed that there is always a blue denim shirt or two in the mix. I’m not sure what that says about me except maybe that I aspire to be the blue version of Johnny Cash’s black. Silly though, as I have no discernible talent.
Anyway, all those blue shirts are not dirty. They just match my 501s so well, I guess. Worse, if I were to find those shirts again in something like my size, I would buy more. Maybe what I should do is take them in and have a white number monogrammed on each pocket, you know, like one through seven. That would at least let me wear them without fear of consternation.
I generally don’t give a damn what other people think. Still, I guess I don’t want folks thinking that my shirt hygiene sucks. So, if I happen to appear again in videos on consecutive days wearing a blue denim shirt, please bear with me. I am but a simple man, and I wear but simple clothing, when possible. And button-fly jeans and denim shirts are the simplest clothes in town.
