do you dare to commit to wear a single jacket for a month through all your waking hours?

    Is this the Aero you got from the sale page (or was it trainee)? Man, it looks amazing

    I've sold jackets before but I simply can't be bothered and I don't need the money. Nice feeling getting rid of things.

    3 days passed so far. It's actually tough. I wanted to take another jacket to work this morning under pretense that this one is too short for bicycling (which it is) but I didn't cave in. I think this challenge might cure me from buying jackets altogether. No regrets.

    Well you ought to at least post a list of your rejects and let us pick through them first. We'll be sad otherwise.

    I havent taken photo yet, since apart from the jacket I wear casual tshirt, cargo pants and sandals, been at home trying to finish a page, anyway it is very hot today, so I had to take it off around mid day until early evening where temp is bearable again.

    Add this to the queue. Not doing the 12 hour thing but can commit to only wearing this for a month. Just noone post anything I'd want to trade it for. ;)

    I'd love to do this with the Hooch Hauler I picked up in august but its so hot in Texas still that its just not feasible. Maybe I'll try it later in the year. Maybe I'll try this challenge with a pair of boots or two in the meantime.

    The great thing about this is that might bond you to one jacket, a signature piece that will associate itself with you. You may sell others or regard them as unneeded. It could solve the ridiculous problem of owning more than one!

    Yeah, right. :)

    I wouldn’t want to commit to this. Part of the reason being that temperatures vary a lot this time of year and some days a shirt and leather jacket is fine whereas other days have required me to pull out my schott peacoat. But the big reason is that I just have too many jackets that I like to wear.
