Great thread. Love it that wine nerds are trying to fashion shame each other. Todd, next time you get the pity invite - rock some big box baggy sweats & a heavy metal tank under a rugger shirt.

Nice line-up guys.

Was a fun night, and the Champagne was a much needed refreshment with all the red Rhône’s on the table. I had no idea what the Champagne was but could tell Charlie was excited about it, and we found out why. Perfect balance of great fruit and freshness.

Only bummer was we were in OC and they were intent on clearing plates early.

Day 2 on that Jamet last night was killer.

Actually I'm not entirely sure - I focused on his eyes, rather than his rear end.
They are both big and round. The butt, not just the eyes. Not that I looked, but he was wearing skin tight sweats. I saw things.
They are called joggers. It's called fashion honey.
Is it athleasure or something? I wouldn't do it but it's probably fine for you LA Hardbodies.

You realize we're talking about Charlie here, right?

I wore shorts. Unfashionable shorts. Very familiar with japanese denim. That shit is uncomfortable.

I assumed he thought I lived in LA.

Best thread all season
Todd, as the OP, you can’t decide this, bro.

It’s like claiming a one-foot wave or declaring yourself “woke.”

It’s just not done ...

I always declare WOTN. Sometimes before we drink. It’s like marking your turf, throwing down the gauntlet.

Fu must have made an impression on my impressionable son, he now wears Lululemon. And who the heck uses the term “joggers”? It’s called running, unless you are fat and slow.
As I explained it to your unfashionable self - joggers are a hybrid of regular pants + sweatpants. Basically fitted tapered sweat pants. The male equivalent of female yoga pants.
'cept they're baggy!

Young Alfert is right on with his Lulu. I love the stuff. I went hunting this morning with a green long sleeve pullover... I literally asked my wife, "is this too much?" She just laughed told me to stop being such a...

Can somebody channel Bob Wood and see where he sits on the Lulu Jogger fence? We need an iron fist determination here.
