Drawing the Line

It is great to have a hobby and to be passionate about something.  As human beings most of us thrive in an environment where we feel a sense of belonging and comradery.  Even so, just like anything else in life and in fashion we need to set limits.   Brace yourselves male readers, for many of you this one is really going to hurt.  You need to draw the line when it comes to…

SPORTS JERSEYS

I know this is a tough wardrobe habit to break not to mention a sensitive subject for most guys.  I am not insisting that you stop wearing sports jerseys all together, however there has to be some parameters.  If you are over the age of 15 you should only be caught wearing a sports jersey in the following scenarios:

1-     If you are yourself physically playing a sport whether professionally or for fun

2-     If you are in a sports bar and/or watching a sporting event on television

3-     If you are in attendance at a live sporting event

Sports apparel companies make millions off of this craze.  I never really understood it.  It is not even your name on the back; it is as if you are wearing someone else’s clothes.  In the spirit of drawing the line I’d like to suggest the following rule of thumb.  If you are a grown man you should own no more than 5 sports jerseys at any given time.  I do not mean 5 football jerseys, 5 baseball jerseys, 5 basketball jerseys, and so on. I mean 5 TOTAL.  So if you have 5 and there is a new one you feel you really have to have, one of the pre existing five has to go to the Salvation Army or donated to your 12 year old nephew.  I know this is difficult, but please trust me on this one.

    So Maz…

    I get the “only 5” thing….but…..do you ascribe to any age limit for them?
    Is there a Maztute of Limitations on wearing jerseys and sweatshirts?

    Should I quit wearing my NY Giants 1986 Super Bowl Sweatshirt?

    • Hi Islander505, thanks for coming back. There is a Maztute of Limitations and thanks for that term by the way. Please check back as I fully intend to write about clothing that belongs in the memory box as well as when you need to stop wearing the oldies……
