Year of the shirt

I bought this Stussy T-shirt a few years ago because it was unusual and on sale. I didn't even try it on in the shop.

When I finally tried it on at home, it was like the ugliest, most horrifying thing.

I looked like I was wrapped in snake. (Not snakeskin, but snake.) It actually frightened my wife.

It's also in that particularly unflattering shade of brown. So I put the shirt away.

Well, tomorrow is the first day of the Year of the Snake and I finally have an excuse to wear the hideous thing.

Because of this, I'm actually excited about Chinese New Year for the first time in a long while. I can't wait to frighten my relatives.

Gong xi fa cai, everyone! Or rather, gong sssssssssssssssssss fa cai.
