Calvin Klein Classic Crew Neck T-Shirt

The “Classic” Crew Neck – Still my favorite T-shirt after all these years. After all these years since they were first introduced, a man cannot go wrong by wearing a Calvin Klein white T-shirt. A staple of fashion in most men’s closets. You can wear a Calvin under a nice dress shirt for comfort. You can wear a Calvin Klein tee under a casual shirt or even alone. Wear a white t-shirt with a nice pair of denim or khakis. The options are nearly endless. Calvin Klein sold their first white t-shirts starting in the ’80s, and even then I was a big fan. Of course, back in the 80’s money was a bit limited for me, since I was living at my parents and babysitting, but when I could I bought my Calvin’s. Well, today things are a bit different, but the Calvin Klein, classic fit, 100% cotton crew neck T-shirt remains the same. What I like the most about my Calvin’s is that they last so long. Washing after washing they always look great. So many T-shirts I have bought in the past, when I have tried to save money, just didn’t hold up. Often those shirts lose their color and their shape after a few launderings. My Calvin Klein white T-shirt always stays white (if you buy the white tees of course), and the neck always holds it’s shape, no matter how many washings. Speaking about the neckline, I have another favorite thing about Calvin Klein tees other than durability. To this day I have never found a T-shirt that looks as great under a button-down shirt, or sweater where the tee might show. Under a V-neck sweater, or low crew, just enough of the collar of the tee might show, and it makes a nice contrast.

Men's gray house slippers sitting on a white background - In search for the perfect men's house slippers

In Search of the Perfect House Slippers

Maybe not the perfect shoes, but these are great for the colder months. It’s my task every few years since having moved north. The search for the perfect house slipper, or shoe. As I have gotten older my feet get cold during the winter months. Whereas a nice pair of socks use to suffice, now I have to wear lighter-weight pair of house slippers. My house slippers of many years finally gave up on me recently, or vice versa. Well, actually I saw my toe poking out one day, so I knew it was time for a new pair. The trouble with men’s house slippers is that they are pretty hard to find in stores, and even when you can find them, the selection and sizes are always poor. Sure you can visit the more fine men’s stores. And yes they may have something that would be called a house slipper, but you will easily end up paying $50, $90, or even more for a pair. For my budget and my use, a generic pair of house slippers does the trick for me. I tried to get the same pair that I had before, but alas they were nowhere to be found. So with that being said, I had to find another option. I stumbled on these Urban Fox Jackson slippers and after reading the reviews online, I knew that they would be fine for me. First, they were inexpensive, just a bit over $12 when I bought them. Second, they looked pretty warm, with the micro-suede, rubber-soles, and faux fur trim. Not too much so, but perfect for in the house. So, I picked out my suggested (normal) size, using the reviews as a guide to how the fit was. They arrived just a few days later, thank you
