Fleece Is Nice but there is One Huge Problem

northface fleece

It collects EVERYTHING and ANYTHING.

Strands of hair that are a color of no one I even know somehow end up on it.

Did you just take a bite of food? Well guess what, all those crumbs are now on your fleece.

Just take it out of the wash? Got all the hair and lint off, right? NOPE, new stuff is there already.

Lint rollers are a necessity.

Hanes Sweats Having No Pockets Is Killing Me

hanes sweatsI like sweats. I wear them whenever I’m home and don’t have to go anywhere. Can’t beat sweats for comfort either. I always get Hanes sweats too. Dark grey is my favorite color of them. 

Since I was in the need for some new ones, I put in an order at Hanes.com along with some other stuff (beefy t’s, another Hanes classic). I was dissapointed, no I was almost angered to find out they didn’t have pockets. My old Hanes sweats had them. Why don’t these?

I’m all for lounging and being comfortable, but I need pockets. NEED them. I don’t care if I don’t put anything in there, they must be on my pants. I’ll probably only put my hands in them but that doesn’t matter, still need them. (I don’t trust sweatpants pockets for anything more than tissues. Phone/wallet, that stuff is sliding out or is just to heavy to be comfortable).

Now, I did just double check and it does say on Hanes site that they go no pockets, according to them so “the look is sleek”. Screw that. I don’t care what the look is. They’re sweat pants. Sweatpants means you don’t care. Just give me some damn pockets.

So, the Army makes clothes now?

ForeignPolicy.com – Last week, Elle informed its readers that military inspired style was making a comeback — in the words of the magazine, “North Korea chic.” Thanks to the good people at the Authentic Apparel Group, average Joes can now stay on trend with a new U.S. Army-licensed clothing line available exclusively on Zappos.com. It’s the first time the U.S. Army has extended its brand to an original line of consumer clothing and, surprisingly, it doesn’t disappoint. Neither does its spokespersonmodel: Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who has signed on as the public face of the clothing line.

I gotta hand it to the Army. People have been making clothes based off of old WWII and Vietnam era military jackets for a little while now, so it makes sense for the people who made it famous to cash in on it.

The Rock as the spokesperson is a A+ move too. You can’t not like they guy.

The only weird thing is some of the clothes have a US ARMY tag above the pocket. Just seems weird wearing clothes with that on it if you aren’t actually in the US Army.

Sidenote – I’m totally making that hand gesture in all my pics from now on
