Redux: Go To Hell ...

Update....it's almost time to wear this stuff again....


…Clothes that is. 

LFG is back with her mom. I loved every minute of my week with LFG and my mom but I’m ready for some selfish time. To that end, I’m headed to the shower and then into Old Town. There’s a Stoli-Dirty-Dry-Olives-Up with my name on it. Then it’s over for Sushi.

Ok…I can take all of your bullshit about my go to hell clothes but cut me a break on my picture takin’. This blog is a solo act. If you see me out tonight in Old Town-this is my rig. Nan. Red belt and black suede Gucci Bits. Shut Up.

I’m not certain that there is one truly correct answer regarding the origins of Go To Hell Clothes. Methinks that a big part of the genesis comes from two sources-the 19th Hole at the Club and the Fratty House. Whatever-I just like an element of GTH clothes in my closet. As I’ve said regarding other sartorial items that push the envelope, you’ve gotta have a healthy measure of don’t give a shitake to pull any of these looks off. Also, you have to know your terrain. You don’t want to wear a home jersey to an away game.

We even have a subtle-ish (shut up) version of GTH in khaki.

And we have the yin-yan. Day-Evening GTH trousers over here. Shut up.

You have to be able to stand the ridicule. I think the moment that closed the deal on my respect for Toad was when he referred to my winter GTH trousers as “looking like the seat covers on a 1973 Maverick”.

Looks like you raided my wife's closet.

(Many thanks!)

It's never too early for anything GTH!

Some of us feel like saying GTH to people who wear such things, I assure you, because that's precisely what you're saying to us.

Spring! Looking forward to it~!

Stein Mart has all their Flusser Spring wear on display. Got my eye on a small check seersucker jacket and lobster Sero tie....

Love Spring...

Crossing over into Artistic Expression territory. Next thing we know you will dare to eat a peach.

With all due respect to Toad, my wife and I once owned a '73 Maverick. The seat covers were a rather mundane solid blue vinyl. Now a '69 Chevy I once owned had a rather intriguing green paisley interior . . .

I was in Old Town this afternoon and isn't it gorgeous!! My thermometer says 81.

Since you're on the "Go to Hell" topic, again, (and it's one of my favorites), I feel I need to comment about "Go to Hell" cars.

Of course, it's none of my business, but I think you dismissed LFG's interest in a Mini-Cooper too easily.

I know someone who is 6'2" or 6'3" who finds it roomy enough. Are you sure you really tried it?

If you can't get her a dog, why not a Mini? There, I've said it. It was therapeutic. I have no idea why I even give this any thought.

I must admit LFG certainly has a good and loving father.

James...indeed.

AnanWifeClosetMan...I'll be back for the shoes and undergarments next week!

LimeGreenGal...My winter GTH options are limited so I simply "behave" it instead of wearing it.

AnonGTHPerson...indeed. We love to piss you off.

Paul...I think the SteinMart stuff looks good this year.

LPC...I'm a dilettante so don't get your hopes up.

John....Toad's a good guy but he's a bit of a snob when it comes to seat covers.

NCJack...come on bossman-you've got something similar in your closet. Or under the house.

Anon...Mini ... just don't know.

Seriously impressive! I don't even know where to start. It's as if we died and woke up in GTH heaven. Many thanks for sharing these with us.

ADG- I'm tempted to say, "Expand your winter wardrobe" but I know better. Besides, it can be more fun to misbehave in the winter, particularly when one is surrounded by all sorts of drab and dark winterwear.

The navy bird/asian motifs are still my favorites of this collection.
