When I met Kumar about a decade ago, he introduced me to the unique world of men's fashion. That initial arousal of my interest in this sub-discipline has grown and has been held ever since. Well, at the very least, I've been "sensitized" to it and can now spot (and smell!) a faux-pas from a mile away! And now, Kumar and myself are forming a dynamic duo (of sorts!) and together, we're endeavoring, to gently nudge and guide men, on to the path of sartorial "enlightenment."

Week Twenty-four: Kumee's Latest Steal/Splurge

It hasn't been very long since the last "Kumee's latest requisition" post, and yet here we are...again, go figure, lol! I'm like totally eating my words when I said that "one can never have too many white shirts" and although his two newest shirts may not be white, they're just as blank a canvas for perhaps an ultra-conservative corporate get-up that announces that you mean "business" and yet subtly interesting enough to be the basis for a fun and casual *nautical* outfit (that is soooo the rage these days for both the sterner and fairer sexes!) that one can rock regardless of whether one lives nowhere remotely close to a navigable body of water and lives as inland as, uh, Saskatoon?!

Seriously though, if you wear dress shirts on a daily basis, it's imperative to have enough shirts to last you at least until the next dry-cleaners run. Of course, if you're domestically capable, you could always pre-treat their collars, load them up into the delicates cycle, add some Zero wash, hang dry and press them yourself every week or so, but if you're a bit fussy like Kumee who had kindly told/explicitly warned me (in so many words!) to "NEVER TOUCH MY SHIRTS EVER AGAIN!" after I had volunteered to do all of the above in a feeble attempt to significantly cut down our expenses during the recent infamous market crash (and pocket myself the ridiculous amount he spends on Bellingham services!), then you're really better off just stockpiling the Etons...


  1. no shirt ironing, definitely a plus!! lol

  2. no ironing+palmolive dishsoap=soft holdable hands lol:P
