As a public service, can I just say one thing?
Short-sleeved turtlenecks are stupid.
First of all, there’s not a single person no matter how thin who isn’t made to look like a sausage by them. Second, either it’s cold enough for a turtleneck or warm enough for short sleeves. It cannot be both. It is a matter of physics. And justice.
Third, oh my GOD, it’s fucking winter. I should not have to go to Major Rock-Climber Mountaineer Elk-Hunter Catalogs Monthly in order to get something that will keep me warm enough for my 20-minute on-foot/bike commute. I should not have to import a wool sweater from Ireland. It doesn’t even get that cold in Ireland. It gets colder here than it does in Ireland, so why is Ireland equipped for the weather here and the stores here are selling peasant shirts made of gauze in November? And short-sleeved sweaters? Who gave Isaac Mizrahi the good crack? Do I need to go back to sewing my own stuff? Is it that hard to make warm things that are both cute and widely available to the general public for a price not equivalent to the going rate for a human baby?
Well, is it?
