Size Matters

Posted in Nonsense with tags , , on June 28, 2014 by Bob

When you are losing weight. It does for me anyway … with my pants. I have been steadily losing weight and I am in between sizes right now. My old pants are too big and my new pants are just a hair too tight to wear comfortably. They fit, but not well. Whose idea was it to make sizes go by 2? I know that there are SOME in-between sizes but, they are few and far between. I know I could also suck it up and lose that extra half inch around my waist but it isn’t that easy. I have plateaued. It is frustrating.

I am also frustrated by the fact I need to replace all my Hawaiian shirts. While they fit when I bought them, now they pretty much all look like I got them at an Israel Kamakawiwo’ole estate sale. I have a lot of shirts. It is going to be expensive. I might have to open a kickstarter campaign.

Bob’s Travel Tips – Fashion

Posted in Nonsense, Travel Tips, Vacation with tags , , , , on May 1, 2014 by Bob

I will give you all a moment to stop laughing at the fact that I am giving fashion advice.

Ready yet? No? Still Laughing?

 

Ok, should be done by now.

I feel I can speak on this because there is only one way to dress when you travel. For the purpose of this post, I am going to assume that travel is always someplace warm. Hell, it doesn’t matter. Wherever you go, the only way to dress is Hawaiian shirt. It is the all purpose party/formal/casual/lounge wear. We as a society idolize celebrities. And we should, at least these celebrities that know how to rock the look.

Well, maybe Nick Nolte isn’t the best role model but … CHUNK!

Anyhoo, if you want to get the best shirts around, go to Bad Shirt Good Times. They have some awesome shirts, and no, I am not paid by them and do not receive free shirts. I like them because they have cool designs, and the guys over at BSGT like to abbreviate their name as much as we do here at VIMB.

 

They also have palm trees in their logo. With a hammock. From the hammock district.

That’s all I got for now. Go buy a shirt and go somewhere.

And Now, Another Word From Another Sponsor

Posted in Nonsense with tags , , , , , on September 28, 2011 by Bob

Ok, I kind of lied. I still don’t have a sponsor, BUT these guys are friends of mine and they are really cool. Not sure how many of you know that I wear Hawaiian shirts every Friday at work between Memorial day and Labor day. I would wear them more often but I don’t like to wear the same shirt twice during a season and I don’t have quite enough shirts to wear for a whole year of Fridays. That and I am not sure if Jackie would let me own 52 Hawaiian shirts.

I guess that I should say WHO this great company is. It is Bad Shirts Good Times. They have some real cool looking shirts for sale and they are reasonably priced for such a high quality shirt. The colors are crisp and clean and they have no caffeine, never had it, and never will. (I just said that, they didn’t. I don’t want anyone to think they have bad slogans that I say)

They are a relatively new company, but I know that they are going to be going places and soon, they will corner the Hawaiian shirt market in the NW Suburbs of Chicago…maybe even further.

According to FCC rules, or someone’s rules, I have to mention that I am not being compensated for anything I have said in this blog.

Just go buy a shirt from this fine retailer will ya? You want a shirt. I know you do. If you don’t, my birthday is coming up Oct. 6th. I like Hawaiian shirts.

Oh yeah, their blog is here. It promises to be quite amusing.
