Your latest t-shirt

White Tshirt

Do you buy t-shirts on internet?. I do. Essentially geeky and crypted branded one (gibberish for some). My latest acquisitions are from A List Apart and Insanely Great Tees. Good quality cotton, nice colours and nice prints.

As a result of fashion, t-shirts have changed these last years. They seem to be weaved in lighter cotton, and offer a tighter fit. The side effect is that I've switched from an L (XL sometimes) to M size. Ls are just too large. I use to favour the thick loose fit surfer style t-shirts for a long time, but I must admit the tighter fit feels good too - to F's pleasure who's been trying to make me wear them for years.

I think I've worn t-shirts ever since I could get dressed alone. The colours, brand and message have evolved through the years, but the t-shirt has always been at the heart of my dressing code - to the great despair of my mum. When I think of it, I'm basically dressed the same way now as I was 20 years ago. Scary. The brands and messages have changed, but the basic look has survived. Seems I'll never grow up.

A quick Spotlight search for 't-shirt' in my e-mail revealed an interesting (and scary) thread of geeky t-shirts I acquired on the net over the years.

I had to buy an ash gray t-shirt of my tribal Spirit design. I remember finishing it and thinking, "Wow. *I* did this?"

I have been contemplating the idea of upgrading my desktop Mac since this spring. The latest 27" iMac (Quad-Core) seemed the perfect candidate, but the release of Apple's 27" Monitor last September made me stick with the Mac Pro...
