Last Saturday I hit the J. Crew outlet store and walked up to the register clutching two shirts with the exact same pattern in different colors. I love a good gingham! So I decided to dedicate this week to a collection of button-downs.
On Wednesday one of our Interactive guys showed up wearing a shirt that was almost identical in print and color, only his was — gasp! — perhaps even cooler, because it had tabbed sleeves. “Your shirt disturbs me,” I said in the break room, and it rapidly became apparent that he had no idea (a) that I was joking, and (b) what the hell inspired my comment. I had to overlap arms to make the supersimilarity clear.
(In a related note, one of our Interactive guys is likely to steer clear of me for the rest of his workplace tenure.)
