>> I've gotten into the habit lately of buying 'gifts' for Steve that are masquerading as things for me to nick. It's a selfish deed that is supposedly making up for the fact that I'm not really shopping for myself but then subconsciously or err‚Ä¶ in some cases, with a blatant amount of consciousness, these 'gifts' for Steve from abroad, that are supposed to say "Sorry for all this travelling around‚Ä¶" inevitably end up going on my back too.
It's too obvious for words when they all come together here yet I stand
my ground. When in store, I thought to myself "Steve will LOVE this", and ok, I
pretty much got it 80% correct. The tassels on the black denim
Phenomenon shirt were perhaps a step too far and yes, everything can conveniently also be worked into my own wardrobe. That my taste in menswear
concurs with my own taste in clothing isn't a radical brainwave but perhaps a lesson in the art of sturdy menswear wardrobe-building probably needs to
be taken if I'm to stop this selfish habit‚Ä¶ or simply put, I should just think about whether tassels and prints are at all Steve's cup of tea… doh!
I'll wear parts of these gifts in their separated form only if I really have to‚Ä¶ to lessen the guilt. I just need to get them on his back more to properly atone‚Ä¶
On an up note, the backpack is a wild success. Steve wants to butter it on toast and eat it. There's a whole lot of wrong in that sentence.
